A Brief History Of The American Fish Culture Company 1877-1997., Michael Rice 2009 University of Rhode Island

A Brief History Of The American Fish Culture Company 1877-1997., Michael Rice

Michael A Rice

The American Fish Culture Company operated for nearly 120 years from 1877-1997 in Carolina, Rhode Island growing three species of trout under the under the direction of several generations of the Hazard family of Peace Dale, Rhode Island. The company was one of the first trout producers in the United States, and was considered the largest fish farm in the country by the early 1920s. Major innovations of the company included early adoption of pelleted feeds, and the introduction of photoperiod manipulation to spawn fish out of season. The company ultimately failed due to intense competition from larger producers in ...


State Court Standards Of Review For The Right To Keep And Bear Arms, David Kopel, Clayton Cramer 2009 Denver University, Sturm College of Law

State Court Standards Of Review For The Right To Keep And Bear Arms, David Kopel, Clayton Cramer

David B Kopel

Cases on the right to arms in state constitutions can provide useful guidance for courts addressing Second Amendment issues. Although some people have claimed that state courts always use a highly deferential version of "reasonableness," this article shows that many courts have employed rigorous standards, including the tools of strict scrutiny, such as overbreadth, narrow tailoring, and less restrictive means. Courts have also used categoricalism (deciding whether something is inside or outside the right) and narrow construction (to prevent criminal laws from conflicting with the right to arms). Even when formally applying "reasonableness," many courts have used reasonableness as a ...

Wfb: The Gladiatorial Style And The Politics Of Provocation, Michael Lee 2009 College of Charleston

Wfb: The Gladiatorial Style And The Politics Of Provocation, Michael Lee

Michael J Lee

William F. Buckley afforded conservatives of all stripes a provocative rhetorical style, a gladiatorial style, as I term it. The gladiatorial style is a flashy, combative style whose ultimate aim is the creation of inflammatory drama. I claim that conservatives encountered Buckley's potent arguments about God, government, and markets and the gladiatorial style simultaneously. The theatrical appeal of Buckley's gladiatorial style inspired conservative imitators with disparate beliefs and, over several decades, became one of the principal rhetorical templates for the performance of conservatism.


Interpreting At The Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal, Kayoko Takeda 2009 Monterey Institute of International Studies

Interpreting At The Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal, Kayoko Takeda

Kayoko Takeda 武田珂代子

This artcile gives an overview of the interpreting arrangements at the Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal (1946–1948), focusing on some sociopolitical aspects of the interpreting phenomena, and discusses the behavior of the interpreters and monitors during the testimony of Hideki Tojo, Japan’s wartime Prime Minister. It provides a contextualized examination of court interpreting rather than a microlinguistic analysis of interpreted texts. The study demonstrates how political and social aspects of the trial and wartime world affairs affected the interpreting arrangements, especially the hierarchical set-up in which three ethnically and socially different groups of “linguists” (language specialists) performed three different ...


The Caning Of Charles Sumner : Honor, Idealism, And The Origins Of The Civil War, Williamjames Hoffer 2009 Seton Hall University

The Caning Of Charles Sumner : Honor, Idealism, And The Origins Of The Civil War, Williamjames Hoffer

Williamjames Hoffer

Charles Sumner was seated at his Senate desk on May 22, 1856, when Democratic Congressman Preston S. Brooks approached, pulled out a walking stick, and struck him on the head. Brooks continued to beat the stunned Sumner, forcing him to the ground and repeatedly striking him even as the cane shattered. He then pursued the bloodied, staggering Republican senator up the Senate aisle until Sumner collapsed. Colleagues of the two intervened only after Brooks appeared intent on beating the unconscious Sumner, perhaps, to death. The caning on the Senate floor embodied just how wide the complex North-South cultural divide of ...

"The Parochial Enterprise: Financing Institutional Growth In The Brick-And-Mortar Era", Thomas Rzeznik 2009 Seton Hall University

"The Parochial Enterprise: Financing Institutional Growth In The Brick-And-Mortar Era", Thomas Rzeznik

Thomas Rzeznik

The parochial expansion of the late ninteenth and early twentieth centuries placed substantial financial demands on the Catholic community. Focusing on developments within the city of Philadelphia and its burgeoning urban neighborhoods, this article explores the strategies church officials and local parishes developed to fund their extensive building projects. By the early twentieth century, parochial fundraising had reached a new level of coordination and maturity, a trend highlighted by the rise of professional campaign managers to acquire the sums needed to sustian brick-and-mortar ambitions.


The Home Savings Bank Art Project, Adam Arenson 2009 University of Texas at El Paso

The Home Savings Bank Art Project, Adam Arenson

Adam Arenson

For more than three decades, Millard Sheets and his studio of artists designed Home Savings and Loan banks throughout California, studding their iconic projects with mosaics, murals, stained glass and sculptures that celebrated both family life and the history of the Golden State. This study recovers the history of this public art, from the commissioning of the first bank branch in 1952 through the recent history of the properties’ sale. It advances contemporary urban history by chronicling a corporate investment in public memory, describing how this interplay of community banking and public art fostered an image of community in California ...


Great Lakes Indian Accommodation And Resistance During The Early Reservation Years, 1850-1900, John Bowes 2009 Eastern Kentucky University

Great Lakes Indian Accommodation And Resistance During The Early Reservation Years, 1850-1900, John Bowes

John P. Bowes

In his latest book, Great Lakes Indian Accommodation and Resistance, Edmund Jefferson Danziger presents a sound and straightforward argument. Through a series of chapters that cover reservation life, allotment, education policy, and missionary activity, the message is clear: American Indian residents of the Great Lakes region in the second half of the nineteenth century were active agents in their lives, not passive victims of federal government policies or settler invasions. It is an argument that noticeably reflects the critical developments of scholarship over the past several decades. And while some might debate the usefulness of such phrasing as accommodation versus ...


Trail Of Tears: Removal In The South, John Bowes 2009 Eastern Kentucky University

Trail Of Tears: Removal In The South, John Bowes

John P. Bowes

When the United States purchased the Louisiana Territory from France in 1803, President Thomas Jefferson proposed that eastern Indian tribes could be moved west to this new expanse of land. Jefferson's recommendation was in direct response to the demand by white settlers for more land, especially in the southeastern portion of the United States. As a result, Congress passed the Indian Removal Act of 1830, which set in motion the relocation of thousands of eastern Indians to lands west of the Mississippi River. Among the primary tribes targeted for this large-scale removal was the Cherokee. Despite proving its sovereign ...

Movable Pillars: Organizing Dance 1956-1978, Katja Kolcio 2009 Wesleyan University

Movable Pillars: Organizing Dance 1956-1978, Katja Kolcio

Katja Kolcio Ph.D.

Movable Pillars traces the development of dance as scholarly inquiry over the course of the 20th century, and describes the social-political factors that facilitated a surge of interest in dance research in the period following World War II. This surge was reflected in the emergence of six key dance organizations: the American Dance Guild, the Congress on Research in Dance, the American Dance Therapy Association, the American College Dance Festival Association, the Dance Critics Association, and the Society of Dance History Scholars. Kolcio argues that their founding between the years 1956 and 1978 marked a new period of collective action ...

Introduction: Homoerotic, Lesbian, And Gay Ethnic And Immigrant Histories, Horacio Roque Ramirez 2009 independent scholar

Introduction: Homoerotic, Lesbian, And Gay Ethnic And Immigrant Histories, Horacio Roque Ramirez

Horacio N Roque Ramirez, Ph.D.

This essay introduces a special journal issue bringing together the well-established field of racial-ethnic and immigration history in the U.S. with the less visible but just as strong and growing field of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) and “queer” history and culture, essays exploring race and ethnicity, immigration and nation, and gender, sex, and sexuality as they inform one another, as well as the making of identities, historical subjects, communities, and policy. The contributors challenge the assumption that the history of immigration and racial-ethnic immigrant settlement take form only along heterosexual or heteronormative lines, whether people’s movements ...

Friendship Of My Soul. Selected Letters By Elizabeth Ann Seton 1803-1809, Betty Ann McNeil 2009 DePaul University

Friendship Of My Soul. Selected Letters By Elizabeth Ann Seton 1803-1809, Betty Ann Mcneil

Betty Ann McNeil, D.C.

            Friendship of My Soul presents selected letters of Elizabeth Ann
Bayley Seton during a period which became pivotal for her vocation in
life and journey of faith. Elizabeth Seton writes to key correspondents
on matters of family, faith, and friendship. The women with whom she
corresponded included a sister-in-law, the wife of her husband’s business
associate, and a life-long friend. Each woman shared her heart and soul with
the other as they mutually supported one another during ebb and flow of
the tides of their lives.
