About this Item: Hallden Division of Fawcett Publications, Inc, Greenwich, CT, 1974. Wraps. Condition: Fair. Hank Ketcham (illustrator). Dennis the Menace Bonus Magazine Series. Unpaginated (46 pages plus covers). Color illustrations. Substantial edge wear and tears. Cover has some soiling. This issue is number 131 and also has on the cover the number 06609 and appears to have been published in July, 1974. Part of the comic book discusses Dennis's visit to Explorers Hall in the Headquarters building of the National Geographic Society, the largest scientific organization in the world. Dennis the Menace is a daily syndicated newspaper comic strip originally created, written, and illustrated by Hank Ketcham. It debuted on March 12, 1951, in 16 newspapers and was originally distributed by Post-Hall Syndicate. It is now written and drawn by Ketcham's former assistants, Marcus Hamilton and Ron Ferdinand, and distributed to at least 1,000 newspapers in 48 countries and in 19 languages by King Features Syndicate. The comic strip usually runs for a single panel on weekdays and a full strip on Sundays. The comic strip became so successful that it was adapted to other popular media, including several television shows, both live-action and animated; and several feature films, including theatrical and direct-to-video releases. The Bonus Magazine Series apparently ran from 1970 to 1979. Henry King Ketcham (March 14, 1920 - June 1, 2001), better known as Hank Ketcham, was an American cartoonist who created the Dennis the Menace comic strip, writing and drawing it from 1951 to 1994, when he retired. In 1953, he received the Reuben Award for the strip. Ketcham started in the business as an animator for Walter Lantz and eventually Walt Disney. During World War II, Ketcham was a photographic specialist. He also created the character Mr. Hook for the Navy during World War II and four cartoons were made (one by Walter Lantz Productions in color and three by Warner Bros. Cartoons in black and white). While in the Navy he began a camp newspaper strip, Half Hitch, which ran in The Saturday Evening Post beginning in 1943. After the war, he worked as a freelance cartoonist. In 1951, he started Dennis The Menace, based on his four-year-old son Dennis. Ketcham was in his studio in October 1950, when his first wife, Alice Mahar, burst into the studio and complained that their four-year-old, Dennis, had wrecked his bedroom instead of napping. "Your son is a menace," she shouted. Within five months, 16 newspapers began carrying the adventures of the impish but innocent "Dennis the Menace." By May 1953, 193 newspapers in the United States and 52 abroad were carrying the strip to 30 million readers. Seller Inventory # 72720

About this Item: Louisiana State Univ Pr. Hardcover. Condition: New. 161 pages. Dimensions: 7.1in. x 4.9in. x 0.8in.In the early 1970s, two idealistic young peopleGwen Carpenter Roland and Calvin Voisindecided to leave civilization and re-create the vanished simple life of their great-grandparents in the heart of Louisianas million-acre Atchafalaya River Basin Swamp. Armed with a box of crayons and a book called How to Build Your Home in the Woods, they drew up plans to recycle a slave-built structure into a houseboat. Without power tools or building experience they constructed a floating dwelling complete with a brick fireplace. Towed deep into the sleepy waters of Bloody Bayou, it was their home for eight years. This is the tale of the not-so-simple life they made togetherdays spent fishing, trading, making wine, growing food, and growing uptold by Gwen with grace, economy, and eloquence. Not long after they took up swamp living, Gwen and Calvin met a young photographer named C. C. Lockwood, who shared their back to the earth values. His photographs of the couple going about their daily routine were published in National Geographic magazine, bringing them unexpected fame. More than a quarter of a century later, after Gwen and Calvin had long since parted, one of Lockwoods photos of them appeared in a National Geographic collectors edition entitled 100 Best Pictures Unpublishedand kindled the interest of a new generation. That photo and many others by Lockwood are included here. With quiet wisdom, Gwen recounts her eight-year voyage of discoveryabout swamp life, wildlife, and herself. A keen observer of both the natural world and the ways of human beings, she transports readers to an unfamiliar and exotic place, preserving her great adventure for those who did not make the trip in person. I would write in the stern of our red and green bateau while Calvin was running nets or lines from the bow. Since ink smears when it gets wet, I used pencils on a yellow legal pad propped against the black Mercury outboard motor. Whenever it was time for me to crank the motor and run us to the next line or net, Id sit on the pad to keep it from blowing away. . . . During the writing process, we carried on our regular conversations. The stories are almost extensions of those conversations, rising and falling with our voices, capturing the essence of our daily lives like our elderberry wine captured the fragrance of April to be released again in October. from the prologue AUTHOR BIO: Gwen Roland is a writer and editor for the Southern Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program at the University of Georgia in Griffin. She is at work on a novel set one hundred years ago in the Atchafalaya Basin. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover.

About this Item: The Textile Society of America, Oakland, 2005. CD. Condition: New Adobe Reader. 5 x 5 CD-ROM in New condition. Requires a PDF reader such as FoxIt or; Illustrated by Many black and white illustrations and figures; The Textile Society of America’s 9th Biennial Symposium took place October 7–9, 2004, at the Oakland Marriott City Center Hotel in Oakland, California. The theme as reflected in the title, appropriation • acculturation • transformation, offered a stimulating approach to the study of historic and contemporary textiles from many cultures and diverse perspectives. Of eighty presentations in twenty-four sessions, seventy are represented in this CD-ROM. Sixty-seven authors have contributed sixty-two papers.Together with more than seventy abstracts, they reflect in text and image the substance and intellectual vibrancy that characterized this symposium.Geographically, the San Francisco Bay Area is where East greets West, where the landmass of North America abuts the Pacific coast, a meeting point of cultures that comprise the Pacific Rim. Historically, the Bay Area has witnessed dramatic creativity in the textile arts: from the native peoples of California, world renowned for their basketry through the early Spanish, Mexican, and Yankee settlers who traded local goods for silks from Asia and the Pacific, to the days of the Golden Gate International Exposition in 1939- 1940 and the early work of Dorothy Liebes. More recently, the Bay Area has continued to attract people with a passion for fiber: the "Textile Revolution" of the 1970s was fueled by the contributions of Ed Rossbach, Lillian Elliott, Kay Sekimachi, Katherine Westphal and their followers. An area with a long record of scholarly contrarianism and counter-cultural initiatives, this geographic nexus had spawned more than its share of debates about terminology surrounding textiles, fiber arts, and textile arts, and deliberative consideration as to how these concepts relate to more formally recognized and accepted arts.At the Opening Reception, the Local Organizing Committee honored four "Living Legends" of fiber arts in the Bay Area: Dominic Di Mare, Kay Sekimachi, Lydia Van Gelder (who exhibited at the Golden Gate International Exhibition), and Katherine Westphal. They and other key players who contributed to the history and creativity of fiber arts in the San Francisco Bay Area provided a lively focus for this symposium. Lead keynote speaker Jack Lenor Larsen presented a lucid synthesis of the national impact of California design, including the role played by textiles in the Bay Area, in relation to the movements of Modernism, indoor-outdoor lifestyles, and subsequent significant national cultural trends. The plenary panel focused on the profound significance of textile arts and scholarship in the Bay Area. Providing an historical overview covering most of the 20th century, panelists addressed the seminal impact of the study of textiles, a subject taught at the University of California, Berkeley, from 1917–79 in a department variously called Household Arts, Decorative Arts, and Design. Native American basket-maker Julia Parker, a Coast Miwok and Kashaya Pomo, shared her approach to practice that embodies respect for wisdom of the elders and awareness of its transmission in the preservation of traditions. She spoke of the importance of the environment and its bounty. In looking to the future, she reminds us of the urgent needs for both conservation and the effective utilization of resources.; 0.5.

About this Item: Harvard University Press, Cambridge, MA, 1998. Hardcover. Presumed first edition/first printing. Sewn binding. Paper over boards. x, [2], 497, [3] p. Illustrations. In the late 1990s, most Americans, black and white, identify slavery with cotton, the deep South, and the African-American church. But at the beginning of the 19th century, after almost 200 years of African-American life in mainland North America, few slaves grew cotton, lived in the deep South, or embraced Christianity. This text traces the evolution of black society from the first arrivals in the early-17th century through to the Revolution. In telling their story, Ira Berlin, a leading historian of southern and African-American life, reintegrates slaves into the history of the American working class and into the tapestry of the nation. Labouring as field hands on tobacco and rice plantations, as skilled artisans in port cities, or soldiers along the frontier, generation after generation of African-Americans struggled to create a world of their own making. In a panoramic view that stretches from the North to the Chesapeake Bay and Carolina lowcountry, to the Mississippi Valley, this text reveals the diverse forms that slavery and freedom assumed before cotton was king. The reader witnesses the transformation that occurred as the first generations of creole slaves-who worked alongside their owners, free blacks, and indentured whites-gave way to the plantation generations, whose back-breaking labour was the sole engine of their society, and whose physical and linguistic isolation sustained African traditions on American soil. From Wikipedia: "Ira Berlin (born 1941) is an American historian, a Distinguished University Professor at the University of Maryland, and a past President of the Organization of American Historians. Berlin is the author of such books as Many Thousands Gone and Generations of Captivity. Berlin received his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin Madison in 1970. He has written extensively on American history and the larger Atlantic world in the 18th and 19th centuries. Berlin has focused in particular on the history of slavery in the United States. His first book, Slaves Without Masters: The Free Negro in the Antebellum South, was awarded the Best First Book Prize by the National Historical Society. [1] In 2003 he also was the chief advisor of the HBO film "Unchained Memories" Berlin has long been concerned with studying what he termed the "striking diversity" in African-American life under slavery a diversity which, he argues, is especially evident when one is attentive to differences over space and time. In his 1998 book Many Thousands Gone, which covers the history of North American slavery up through the 18th century, Berlin differentiates between four regions and their respective slave regimes: the Chesapeake, the Lowcountry of South Carolina and Georgia, the Lower Mississippi Valley, and the North. He then explores each of these regions in terms of three distinct "generations, " thus emphasizing shifts over time. Berlin argues that geographic and temporal differences in the first two centuries of North American slavery had important consequences for African American culture and society. He is the founder of the Freedmen and Southern Society Project, which he directed until 1991. The project's multi-volume Freedom: A Documentary History of Emancipation (1982, 1985, 1990, 1993) has twice been awarded the Thomas Jefferson Prize of the Society for the History of the Federal Government as well as the J. Franklin Jameson Prize of the American Historical Association for outstanding editorial achievement. (October, 1999) He was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2004. In 2007, Berlin was an advising scholar for the award-winning, PBS-broadcast documentary Prince Among Slaves, produced by Unity Productions Foundation." Good in very good dust jacket. Highlighting/underlining. Some ink underlining and other writing and marks noted. One map page creased. Seller Inventory # 68683

Anger against mass impersonality is not capricious or futile: people can form new kinds of community--whether in geographic groupings, in the work place, or in voluntary organizations. Gardner's smooth reasonableness tends to mask the difficulties though he does not ignore them. A major problem is to keep power dispersed--to prevent "not just the government itself but any organized groups or institutions" from dominating the electorate. And just because we are less sanguine, says Gardner, "we can face up to the complexities of action and still act." Whoever reads and heeds redeems Gardner's effort--but how much more could be accomplished with some practical input from Common Cause. John William Gardner, (October 8, 1912 - February 16, 2002) was Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) under President Lyndon Johnson. A native of California, Gardner attended Stanford University. As an undergraduate he set several swimming records and won a number of Pacific Coast championships, and graduated "with great distinction." After earning a Ph.D. in Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley in 1938, Dr. Gardner taught at Connecticut College and at Mount Holyoke. During the early days of World War II he was chief of the Latin American Section, Foreign Broadcast Intelligence Service. He subsequently entered the United States Marine Corps and was assigned to the O.S.S., serving in Italy and Austria. He joined the staff of the Carnegie Corporation of New York in 1946, and in 1955 he became president of that group, and concurrently, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. He also served as an advisor to the U.S. delegation to the United Nations and as a consultant to the U.S. Air Force, which awarded him the Exceptional Service Award in 1956. He was a trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and of the Educational Testing Service and a director of the Woodrow Wilson Foundation. He served as chairman of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund Panel on Education, and was chief draftsman of that group's widely circulated report, The Pursuit of Excellence. He was also the founder of two influential national U.S. organizations: Common Cause and Independent Sector. He authored books on improving leadership in American society and other subjects. He was also the founder of two prestigious fellowship programs, The White House Fellowship and The John Gardner Fellowship at Stanford University and U.C. Berkeley. He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1964. In 1966 Gardner was awarded the Public Welfare Medal from the National Academy of Sciences. Gardner's term as Secretary of HEW was at the height of Johnson's Great Society domestic agenda. During this tenure, the Department undertook both the huge task of launching Medicare, which brought quality health care to senior citizens, and oversaw significant expansions of the landmark Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 that redefined the federal role in education and targeted funding to poor students. Gardner resigned as head of HEW because he could not support the war in Vietnam. Gardner was featured on the cover and in an article of the January 20, 1967 Time magazine, and later that year also presided over the creation of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. He served on the Stanford University Board of Trustees from 1968 to 1982. In 1970, Gardner created Common Cause. He also founded the Experience Corps. In 1973, he received the S. Roger Horchow Award for Greatest Public Service by a Private Citizen, an award given out annually by Jefferson Awards. In 1980-1983 he co-founded Independent Sector, which lobbies and does PR on behalf of tax-exempt organizations in order to re. Seller Inventory # 74022
