2. Title:1880's Newfoundland - A Pictorial [ Full Record ]
URL:http://collections.ic.gc.ca/nfld/
Description:This album of photographs appears to be the work of Simeon H. Parsons (1844-1908), one of Newfoundland's earliest professional, self-taught and award-winning photographers. The photographs are very much in the style for which Parsons was noted and cover a wide geographic area, including the Burin Peninsula and coastal Labrador, in addition to more easily accessible areas such as St.John's and eastern Newfoundland communities. Internal evidence dates some of the images to around 1884 - 1885, and given that the recipient of the album, Joseph Laurence, died in October 1886, it would appear safe to assume that the album was compiled during those middle years of the 1880's. Some of the images may date earlier, possibly from stock photographs Parsons may have had on hand.

The album contains some rare images of St. John's streets and buildings that were later destroyed in the 1892 fire that ravaged most of the downtown of the city. It also contains images of people at work in the fishery, particularly on the coast of Labrador; various communities on the Burin Peninsula and on the east coast of Newfoundland; rural scenes, including rivers, lakes and waterfalls; icebergs; groups of people, particularly several gatherings of Methodist clergy, some of whom Laurence was probably responsible for sending to Newfoundland.

The album should prove beneficial to researchers interested in architectural and municipal development, the development of Methodism, the history of photography, the work of Simeon Parsons, and a variety of other subjects pertaining to Newfoundland in the latter half of the Nineteenth Century.

3. Title:1939 World's Fair Photograph Collection [ Full Record ]
URL:http://ajax.lva.lib.va.us/F/?func=file&file_name=find-b-clas71&local_base=CLAS71
Description:Among the U.S. exhibits at the 1939 World's Fair in New York City was the Court of States, where 22 of the 49 states of the United States were represented. Unlike the more ostentatious exhibits sponsored by many of the other states, the Virginia Room was a quiet, circular space of muted colors and comfortable couches surrounding a gently splashing fountain. Visitors were served complimentary glasses of ice water as they perused the collection of photograph albums prepared by the Virginia State Chamber of Commerce. The photo albums were shelved in bookcases embracing the curvature of the room, in alcoves underneath painted symbols on the walls representing twelve aspects of Virginia life: scenic tours, recreation, historic homes, culture, history, colonial archaeology, scenery and natural wonders, physiography, agriculture, education, government and the people, and industry, commerce, and transportation. Five to sixteen albums were devoted to each category. Each photograph in the collection was mounted on a sturdy cardboard backing, with an accompanying caption printed under the picture. The photo albums were arranged in three-ring notebooks, each album bearing a distinctive title. Usage was heavy, and some volumes had to be replaced, so that in the end there were three sets of albums. After the World's Fair closed, the photographs (and the albums that housed them) were donated to the Picture Collection of the Library of Virginia by the State Chamber of Commerce. The Library's digital collection consists of photographs from the first, most complete set of albums, augmented by additional photos from the second and third sets for a total of 3,018 images.

URL:http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/afcphhtml/afcphhome.html
Description:After the Day of Infamy: "Man-on-the-Street" Interviews Following the Attack on Pearl Harbor presents approximately twelve hours of opinions recorded in the days and months following the bombing of Pearl Harbor from more than two hundred individuals in cities and towns across the United States. On December 8, 1941 (the day after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor), Alan Lomax, then "assistant in charge" of the Archive of American Folk Song (now the Archive of Folk Culture, American Folklife Center), sent a telegram to fieldworkers in ten different localities across the United States, asking them to collect "man-on-the-street" reactions of ordinary Americans to the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the subsequent declaration of war by the United States. A second series of interviews, called "Dear Mr. President," was recorded in January and February 1942. Both collections are included in this presentation. They feature a wide diversity of opinion concerning the war and other social and political issues of the day, such as racial prejudice and labor disputes. The result is a portrait of everyday life in America as the United States entered World War II.

At the same time, any subjective terms that are added become discoverable though their relationship to the location. -- from the Web site

33. Title:Digital Scriptorium [ Full Record ]
URL:http://sunsite.berkeley.edu/Scriptorium/
Description:The Digital Scriptorium was conceived as an image dated and datable medieval and renaissance manuscripts, intended to unite scattered resources into an international tool for teaching and scholarly research. It has evolved into a general union catalog designed for the use of paleographers, codicologists, art historians, textual scholars and other researchers. As a visual catalog, it allows scholars to verify with their own eyes cataloguing information about places and dates of origin, scripts, artistic styles, and quality. It documents visually even those manuscripts that traditionally would have been unlikely candidates for reproduction. It provides public access to fragile materials otherwise available only within libraries. Because it is web-based, it encourages interaction between the knowledge of scholars and the holdings of libraries to build an ever-enriched and corrected flow of information. Now, at the end of Phase One, the Digital Scriptorium consists of ca. 8,500 color images from the joined holdings of the Berkeley and Columbia-affiliated libraries, as well as the Union Theological Seminary (NY) and the De BellisCollection (CA). The database also includes some 1000 images of archival materials, photographed both as a teaching resource for courses in diplomatics, and in recognition of the historical linking of book and documentary hands; this category of material is also flagged in the database so that a scholar may restrict his search to it, or exclude it from a general search.

37. Title:Emma Goldman Papers [ Full Record ]
URL:http://sunsite.berkeley.edu/Goldman/
Description:Emma Goldman (1869-1940) stands as a major figure in the history of American radicalism and feminism. An influential and well-known anarchist of her day, Goldman was an early advocate of free speech, birth control, women’s equality and independence, and union organization. Her criticism of mandatory conscription of young men into the military during World War I led to a two-year imprisonment, followed by her deportation in 1919. For the rest of her life until her death in 1940, she continued to participate in the social and political movements of her age, from the Russian Revolution to the Spanish Civil War.
This collection contains selections from Emma Goldman’s Writings: Excerpts from Anarchism and Other Essays (1910), The Social Significance of the Modern Drama (1914), My Disillusionment in Russia (1923), and Living My Life (1931). Also featured are electronic texts of published essays, pamphlets, and speeches; sample documents, letters, telegrams, and handbills scanned from the originals; photographs of Emma Goldman and her contemporaries.

38. Title:Emma Spaulding Bryant Letters - Duke University Special Collections Library [ Full Record ]
URL:http://library.duke.edu/rubenstein/scriptorium/bryant/
Description:Emma Spaulding Bryant wrote these ten letters to her husband, John Emory Bryant, in the summer of 1873. They recount Emma's activities during that summer when she and her daughter, Alice, were visiting relatives in Illinois and Ohio while her husband tended to his political affairs in Georgia. In particular, the letters describe Emma's visits to a doctor in Cleveland for "uterine difficulties" that had been ailing her for some time. Although we do not have her husband's letters to her from this period, it appears that he accused her of adultery with the doctor and berated her for not being obedient to him. Many of Emma's letters from this period have markings in red pencil, presumably made by John to highlight the sections of her letters that he found suspicious. Emma's responses to John's accusations are indignant, and she rebuts each of his points eloquently and emphatically. Because these letters are unusually frank for this time period, they reveal much about the relationships between husbands and wives in this era, and shed light on medical practices that were often kept private….

Emma Spaulding Bryant's letters are found in the John Emory Bryant Papers at the Duke University Special Collections Library.

They recount Emma's activities during that summer when she and her daughter, Alice, were visiting relatives in Illinois and Ohio while her husband tended to his political affairs in Georgia. In particular, the letters describe Emma's visits to a doctor in Cleveland for "uterine difficulties" that had been ailing her for some time. Although we do not have her husband's letters to her from this period, it appears that he accused her of adultery with the doctor and berated her for not being obedient to him. Many of Emma's letters from this period have markings in red pencil, presumably made by John to highlight the sections of her letters that he found suspicious. Emma's responses to John's accusations are indignant, and she rebuts each of his points eloquently and emphatically. Because these letters are unusually frank for this time period, they reveal much about the relationships between husbands and wives in this era, and shed light on medical practices that were often kept private….

Description:"The papers span the years 1898 to 1977, with the bulk of the material beginning in 1948, three years before Arendts naturalization as an American citizen. The collection is organized in the following series: Family Papers, Correspondence, Adolf Eichmann File, Subject File, Speeches and Writings File, Clippings, Addition I, Addition II, and Addition III. Rich in manuscripts and correspondence for Arendt's productive years as a writer and lecturer after World War II, the papers are sparse before the mid-1940s because of Arendt's forced departure from Nazi Germany in 1933 and her escape from occupied France in 1941. Documentation for the first part of her life includes a few notebooks and writings; several official and private records relating mainly to her divorce, family history, and emigration; and a small group of personal correspondence with her second husband, Heinrich Blücher, some of whose letters and unpublished writings can be found in the Family Papers series. Much of the material is in German and other European languages." -- from the Web site
