The Local Is Global: Broker For Human Rights “Florence Kitchelt, Connecticut Peace Activist And Feminist,” 1920-1961, Danelle L. Moon

Danelle L. Moon

In this paper, I will explore the role of local peace activist and feminist, Florence Ledyard Kitchelt (1874-1961) in supporting social justice, equality, and world peace. In 1924 Kitchelt accepted a paid position with the Connecticut League of Nation’s Association (CLNA), and for nearly twenty years she served as secretary and director of the organization. Working through the CLNA she canvassed the state promoting peace education and to building support for the League of Nations and the World Court. In 1925 she traveled to Geneva to study the League of Nations and attended the Assembly. Between the wars she ...

Finding A Voice: Results Of Youth In Participatory Action Research Survey, Richard Chapman, Claudia Dold

Claudia J. Dold

Articipatory action research [PAR] combines systematic research with the development of a practical intervention. PAR methodology draws on the knowledge of the user population to identify problems, to tailor treatments, and to disseminate the results, in combination with professional guidance and project oversight. This exploratory study was designed to gain an understanding of the expectations of the various stakeholders in the system of care for children with mental health challenges: providers of services, researchers, evaluators, youth who had used services, administrators, policy-makers, family, and advocates. We conclude that stakeholders do have reasonable expectations of participatory action research as a process ...

The Columbia Restaurant: Celebrating A Century Of History, Culture, And Cuisine., Andy Huse Dec 2008

The Columbia Restaurant: Celebrating A Century Of History, Culture, And Cuisine., Andy Huse

Andrew Huse

The Columbia is Florida’s oldest and most honored restaurant. Founded in 1905 as a café catering to immigrant cigar workers in Ybor City, it has grown into one of the culinary touchstones of the state. Handed down from generation to generation, the Columbia remains family owned and operated, with six locations throughout Florida, from St. Augustine to Sarasota. Restaurants are sensitive barometers of culture. The Columbia’s history is not one of staid, changeless uniformity, but quite the opposite: to prosper, the restaurant has undergone nearly constant change. This book is rich with stories of secret stashes of liquor ...

Success Strategies For Thesis Students: Creating A Video Toolbox, Claudia J. Dold Dec 2008

Success Strategies For Thesis Students: Creating A Video Toolbox, Claudia J. Dold

Claudia J. Dold

With an increase in our pool of users and a cap on hiring, the librarians in our shop needed a way to clone themselves in order to deliver the same good service on which we pride ourselves and on which our constituency has come to rely. Our proposed solution was to create video segments on how to use the library effectively. Funded by a grant, a project was undertaken to produce a series of fifteen videos designed to guide students through the research and writing skills that their program chairs deem essential for top-quality work. This paper presents the thought ...
