Suetonius was private secretary to the emperor Hadrian and although this group biography of the lives of the 12 Caesars might need an occasional pinch of strict historical salt, it is full of racy decadence and colourful detail – such as Julius Caesar’s semi-baldness, and his use of a comb-over to disguise it. A Moveable Feast Ernest Hemingway (posthumously 1964) Published three years after his death, this is part road trip, part love letter to Paris, part study of his friendship with characters such as F Scott Fitzgerald, and wholly wonderful. It is a mystery how he remembered a moment of it, though, since he drinks so much alcohol, all the time. Try keeping up with him and you’ll be dead drunk by page four.

Apr 10, 2017. History is a powerful subject. Knowing the past allows you to understand the present. Understanding history overcomes the myopia of our limited lifetimes.

One of the oldest forms of literary expression, it seeks to re-create in words the life of a human being—as understood from the historical or personal perspective of the author—by drawing upon all available evidence, including that retained in memory as well as written, oral, and pictorial material. Ancient biography, especially the entire genre of hagiography, subordinated any treatment of individual character to the profuse repetition of edifying examples.

Learn the stories of the people behind the names that are central to the history of the Cherokee Nation; from Sequoyah to Redbird Smith, they're all here. It had rained on and off throughout the American Library Association Midwinter Conference in Atlanta. Yet on the afternoon of January 21, 2017, the morning’s pounding rainstorm lifted and thousands of people (many of them librarians attending the conference) joined a Women’s March that would go down in history. The thrill of making a statement in response to the election of Donald J. Trump as president was palpable, but afterward many were left wondering: What could be done to continue this work? The celebration of women has continued, and beyond the streets. If recent best-seller lists are any indication, biographies of women written for children are a very hot commodity. It’s also worth noting the sheer number of them being published by large and small publishers and the subjects they are opting to highlight. Gone are the days when kids would learn about the same six female historical figures over and over again.

In order to serve the dual purpose he believed the Arboretum would have, Charles Sprague Sargent had to persuade the City of Boston and Harvard College to undertake a joint financial venture. His motives were not entirely altruistic; he needed additional money to build and maintain the Arboretum. The Arboretum’s nurseries were bursting at the seams but Sargent could not begin work on Frederick Law Olmsted’s design without commitment from the City. The proposition finally came to a City Council vote in October 1882, but failed to pass. Proponents of the Arboretum quickly moved to set up an Arboretum Committee, and Sargent and Olmsted stepped up their efforts to rally support. A public relations drive was launched that had the “Arboretum Question” debated in the city’s newspapers. Headlines read: “THE ARBORETUM’S VALUE TO BOSTON,” and “AN EDUCATIONAL PARK AT A BARGAIN.” Sargent circulated a petition signed by 1,305 of the most powerful people in Boston. A newspaper story from December 1, 1882, read in part: “The petition … is probably the most influential ever received by that body. The petition would be a prize to a collector of autographs.” The campaign worked. It includes almost all of the large taxpayers of Boston. On December 27, 1882, terms similar to those Sargent had proposed years before were agreed upon.

Children's Books About Black History, Heavy on Biographies - The.

History biographies

Feb 2, 2018. We — the parents of black children, the parents of all children — still need to tell that story. It comforts the adult conscience to remember that amid history's grave injustices there were still great lives. Hence, I suspect, the preponderance of biographies for children published to coincide with Black History. This index mentions most of the computer pioneers and their inventions, or other important people in computers or computing industry. Due to the length of the index we have cut the index into two parts: [A-J] and [K-Z] you can navigate through both parts via the alphabet icon (see below) from both pages; they have identical mappings. Sometimes a link will bring you to external sites, use the back button of your browser to come back. If you see in-active or un-linked pages, they are either under revision or will be added in the future. So come back often, or press the what's new hotspot on the main page.

Black History Month Photos of Frederick Douglass & His 'North Star' on His 200th Birthday. In our continuing coverage of Black History Month, historian Daina Ramey Berry asks curators from the National Museum of African American History and Culture to share the remarkable stories of important African-American figures. "This collection archives works of the eighteenth century from the perspectives of literary and cultural studies.
