Albion Native Illustrated Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, Matthew R. Ballard
Henry Lyon Porter, a native of Albion, studied at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts before starting his own commercial art business in Buffalo. He later attended the New York School for Walt Disney Animators, graduating in 1936 and eventually participating in the illustration of Disney's first full-length animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Built Ford Tough: Masculinity, Gerald Ford's Presidential Museum, And The Macho Presidential Style, 2018 University of Windsor
Built Ford Tough: Masculinity, Gerald Ford's Presidential Museum, And The Macho Presidential Style, Dustin Jones
In Cold War America, spanning roughly from 1945-1991, masculinity was in crisis. The rise of Communism and the Soviet Union had led to a fear of spies, infiltrators, and defectors known most commonly as the Red Scare. Americans were encouraged to be hyper vigilant in sussing out deviant behaviour. Alongside this scare came the Lavender Scare. It was suggested that homosexuals were deviant peoples and were therefore more susceptible to being turned Communist than their heterosexual counterparts. This led to a crisis of masculinity where even the smallest suggestion of femininity could lead to accusations of potential compromise, an effect ...
Bicentennial Provides Opportunity To Celebrate The Extraordinary And The Ordinary, 2018 Orleans County Department of History
Bicentennial Provides Opportunity To Celebrate The Extraordinary And The Ordinary, Matthew R. Ballard
Bicentennial celebrations are an opportunity to draw communities together, at a time when we are perhaps not as close-knit as past generations may have recalled. It is also a time to reflect on the contributions of the "common folk," scattered throughout the countryside, those who plowed their fields, raised their families, and made a modest living without recognition.
Bogues Dedicated Estate To Caring For Children Of Orleans County, 2018 Orleans County Department of History
Bogues Dedicated Estate To Caring For Children Of Orleans County, Matthew R. Ballard
Ninety-five years ago, the Virgil Bogue Home for Dependent Children opened its doors to young children in need of a home due to the "loss of their parents or the inability of their parents to support them." The home functioned from 1923 to 1949, when it was determined that the Bogue estate and associated investments were no longer sufficient in value to support the institution. The home was sold in 1963 and the organization became the Bogue Fund for Dependent Children.
Sacred Heart Of Jesus Served Medina’S Polish Community For Nearly 100 Years, 2018 Orleans County Department of History
Sacred Heart Of Jesus Served Medina’S Polish Community For Nearly 100 Years, Matthew R. Ballard
Polish immigrants arrived at Medina as early as the 1880s and practiced their faith at St. Mary's Church in that vicinity. On February 1, 1910, Bishop Colton appointed Ks. Tomasz Gwodz as the first resident priest and tasked him with establishing the parish and constructing a church. The parish remained in existence for 100 years before it was finally closed in 2010.
Rural Cemeteries Deserve Our Attention, Too, 2018 Orleans County Department of History
Rural Cemeteries Deserve Our Attention, Too, Matthew R. Ballard
Over the years many of our rural cemeteries have fallen victim to Mother Nature, or worse, vandals. Annis Cemetery in Albion is one particular example where local residents gathered together to tame the overgrowth of briars, locust, and myrtle to restore the sanctity of the final resting place of Orleans County's pioneers.
Regulation And The Marginalist Revolution, 2018 University of Pennsylvania Law School
Regulation And The Marginalist Revolution, Herbert J. Hovenkamp
The marginalist revolution in economics became the foundation for the modern regulatory State with its “mixed” economy. Marginalism, whose development defines the boundary between classical political economy and neoclassical economics, completely overturned economists’ theory of value. It developed in the late nineteenth century in England, the Continent and the United States. For the classical political economists, value was a function of past averages. One good example is the wage-fund theory, which saw the optimal rate of wages as a function of the firm’s ability to save from previous profits. Another is the theory of corporate finance, which assessed a ...
The Soldiers & Sailors Monument: A County-Wide Civil War Memorial, 2018 Orleans County Department of History
The Soldiers & Sailors Monument: A County-Wide Civil War Memorial, Matthew R. Ballard
The Soldiers and Sailors Monument is perhaps one of the most impressive and beautiful war memorials in our area, but the true significance of the shrine is often overshadowed by the novelty and "thrill of the climb" up the winding steel staircase. In the face of grave sacrifice, a community struggled to memorialize the hundreds of young men, sons, brothers, and fathers, who left the security of home for ideals far greater than themselves.
Radical Social Ecology As Deep Pragmatism: A Call To The Abolition Of Systemic Dissonance And The Minimization Of Entropic Chaos, Arielle Brender
Student Theses 2015-Present
This paper aims to shed light on the dissonance caused by the superimposition of Dominant Human Systems on Natural Systems. I highlight the synthetic nature of Dominant Human Systems as egoic and linguistic phenomenon manufactured by a mere portion of the human population, which renders them inherently oppressive unto peoples and landscapes whose wisdom were barred from the design process. In pursuing a radical pragmatic approach to mending the simultaneous oppression and destruction of the human being and the earth, I highlight the necessity of minimizing entropic chaos caused by excess energy expenditure, an essential feature of systems that aim ...
Coopers Played Essential Role In Local Agriculture, 2018 Orleans County Department of History
Coopers Played Essential Role In Local Agriculture, Matthew R. Ballard
The earliest settlers of Orleans County established themselves financially through the manufacture and sale of barrel staves. These materials were shipped to Canada and other parts in exchange for needed tools and resources. Locally, the staves were turned into barrels for the shipment of agricultural products through the hard work of coopers.

Albion Native Was Present At Capture Of John Wilkes Booth, 2018 Orleans County Department of History
Albion Native Was Present At Capture Of John Wilkes Booth, Matthew R. Ballard
Just as many men claimed they were present at the Battle of Gettysburg when they were not, some members of the 16th New York Cavalry claimed to have participated in the capture of John Wilkes Booth. William Collins of Albion, a veteran of the 16th New York Cavalry, claimed that he was present when Boston Corbett shot Booth at the Garrett Farm despite a lack of evidence to support his participation.

History Capstone Projects
Every nation and civilization has a central founding narrative that is ingrained in its history. In Ancient Rome, the story of Romulus and Remus was central to Roman identity and culture. The same can be said for the United States, where the American War of Independence (1775-1781) featured thirteen culturally different North American colonies who miraculously banded together to seek independence from the then largest colonial superpower in Imperial History. The American Colonies cast a bold —and potentially dangerous —stone into the waters of Imperial History when, in April of 1775, the first shots of Independence were fired the Old ...

James Connolly's Bloodstained Vest: Mediating Death And Violence In Commemorative Exhibitions, 2018 Dublin Institute of Technology
James Connolly's Bloodstained Vest: Mediating Death And Violence In Commemorative Exhibitions, Siobhán Doyle
The actions surrounding the display of images and artefacts in museums – collection, conservation, research and exhibition – are bound up with how the past is presented and remembered. These conditions and decisions relating to exhibitions are largely invisible to viewers who are confronted with the apparent completeness of an exhibition display. By conducting a historical and visual analysis of the bloodstained vest of political leader James Connolly, this article uncovers how this artefact has become a relic of historical violence due to the way in which particular aspects of its configuration, form and trajectory have been manipulated in order to elicit ...

Remembering The Church In The Wildwood: The Archival Processing And Digitization Of The Martinsville Baptist Church Collection, Allison N. Grimes
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
Martinsville Baptist Church was founded in 1912 in a rural farming community on State Highway 7 in eastern Nacogdoches County. The church was founded during a revival being held in the community of Martinsville and has been in continuous operation ever since. The church grew throughout its lifetime, reaching record attendance and membership numbers between 1950 and 1980. Since the early 2000s, church attendance and membership has been in decline. This thesis outlines the history of Martinsville Baptist Church and explains conservation measures taken during the archival processing and digitization of records in the Martinsville Baptist Church Collection.
