Newport History

Between 1830 and 1860, Newport became a favored summer haunt for moderately wealthy southerners, Bostonians, New Yorkers, and Philadelphians. Staying at first in boarding houses and hotels, and later in summerhouses termed “cottages,” these summer residents transformed the city from a sleepy, post-Revolutionary ruin into one of the leading resorts in America. The post-Civil War Gilded Age brought with it the “New York invasion” of unbridled wealth and aristocratic ambition, eclipsing this earlier summer society in the popular mind and replacing many of its cottages with palatial mansions. Eliza Cope Harrison and Rosemary F. Carroll return to antebellum Newport in ...

Newport History

During the last decades of the nineteenth century, Newport had more than its fair share of remarkable personalities who shaped its unique literary, artistic, and social cultures. Maud Howe Elliott has until now been little recognized for her prominent role in all these areas. This issue of Newport History features an article by Nancy Whipple Grinnell that rectifies this oversight by charting Elliott's important role in the formation of the Art Association of Newport, predecessor to the Newport Art Museum. In the 1870s, the young architect Charles Follen McKim was another Newport habitué of particular note. This issue of ...

Our design process involves the quantitative analysis of the programmatic, qualified by critical thought. For us, the design process is not only the identification of quantities and spatial adjacencies in building form but also the definition of a critical position, derived from cultural and material context.

Optimal Spacings For Two Common Landscape Irrigation Sprinklers, Kody L. Karschnik Jan 2005

Optimal Spacings For Two Common Landscape Irrigation Sprinklers, Kody L. Karschnik

The Journal of Undergraduate Research

A simple irrigation system providing sufficient watering needed to make a plant grow is not very difficult. However, to set up a system which provides uniform distribution of water is more difficult. Uniformity coefficients such as Distribution Uniformity and Christiansen coefficient of Uniformity can be used to compare systems and layouts. After measuring the distribution of water from a single sprinkler, a densogram is created with software. The densogram is a numerical and graphical representation of the overlap pattern that the sprinklers create on a given area of surface that is being irrigated. By varying the distance between the sprinklers ...


Questioning The Philosophical Influence Of Beauty And Perception In Bramante's Fist Scheme For St Peter's, Gretta Tritch Jan 2005

Questioning The Philosophical Influence Of Beauty And Perception In Bramante's Fist Scheme For St Peter's, Gretta Tritch

Inquiry: The University of Arkansas Undergraduate Research Journal

The association between the architects of the Renaissance and the philosophy of Plato has long been upheld and reiterated. However recent authors such as Alina Payne and Christine Smith have shown this scholarship to be somewhat limited and reactionary. A closer examination of Donato Bramante’s early scheme for the design of the new St. Peter’s basilica demonstrates such limitations of the singular Platonic associations that have been previously made. By studying the philosophical influences that Bramante may have been exposed to throughout his education and early career, a decidedly Aristotelian influence emerges. The design for St. Peter’s ...

William Faulkner's Memphis: Architectural Identity, Urban Edge Condition, And Prostitution In 1905 Memphis, Justin Faircloth

Inquiry: The University of Arkansas Undergraduate Research Journal

It has been said by wags that Memphis (Tennessee) is the largest city in Mississippi. Unquestionably, Memphis is the commercial and cultural capital of the Mississippi River delta country north of Vicksburg. As such it figures prominently in the works of southern writers, especially William Faulkner. Faulkner's characters seek out Memphis as a place of excitement and escape. This paper deals with Faulkner's description of Memphis as it existed in the early decades of the twentieth century; the focus is on passages of The Rievers, but passages from other works are included as well. Because so many of ...
