Memories Of World War Two, Alice Schelbert Nov 2000

Memories Of World War Two, Alice Schelbert

Swiss American Historical Society Review

Each family was obligated to get a plot of land in order to grow vegetables, potatoes, and Indian corn. I abhorred working in field and garden, but luckily my younger sister enjoyed such tasks. Therefore I did the household chores, mended clothes and, for instance, spent hours undoing the runs in nylon stockings with a special hair-thin hook. The stockings were so expensive, so special, and so dearly beloved, yet one was not to wear them with runs.

Raf Wings Over Florida: Memories Of World War Ii British Air Cadets, Willard Largent Sep 2000

Raf Wings Over Florida: Memories Of World War Ii British Air Cadets, Willard Largent

Purdue University Press Books

In the early 1940s, prior to the United States' entry into World War II, through the joint efforts of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston Churchill, British soldiers were sent to the United States for flight training. This collection gives first-person accounts of the men who learned the art of flying in a place far from their homeland, Florida. The stories provide a wonderful contrast between the two cultures and are told in the voices of British cadets, American cadets who trained with them, instructors, and other individuals who welcomed the British cadets into their homes and lives.


Building A Better Briton: Parliament's Push For State-Funded Secondary Schools, 1901-1903, Jason K. Burnett Aug 2000

Building A Better Briton: Parliament's Push For State-Funded Secondary Schools, 1901-1903, Jason K. Burnett

University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations

The first three years of the twentieth century were a crucial time in the development of state-funded education in England. The rising tide of Germanophobia in the wake of the South African War impressed Conservative politicians with the need to improve England's educational system in order that she remain competitive in the world. With the aid of a very few Liberal imperialists, the Conservatives were able to shepherd through a series of bills which established state funded secondary schools throughout all of England, an expansion on the system created by the Education Act of 1870 in terms of both ...

Gertrude Hofmann Langer. The Story Of A Life, Edward G. Langer

Swiss American Historical Society Review

I was born on May 1, 1911 in Kttsnacht, Canton Zttrich, Switzerland. That day is a national holiday in Switzerland which is their equivalent of our Labor Day. It certainly was Labor Day for my mother, Marie Walder Hofmann. (December 22, 1890 - August 23, 1959). The name Kttsnacht means a kiss in the night. My name was a very common name in Switzerland at the time. I had no middle name. The Swiss spelling of my name is Gertrud.

John Adams, The Second President Of The United States, And Switzerland, Paul Widmer

Swiss American Historical Society Review

Writing on a topic such as· John Adams and Switzerland', to a large extent means dealing with the roots of the American Constitution from a rather peculiar standpoint. In order not to mislead the reader about the modest importance of this undertaking, I would like to tell an anecdote at the outset.

Book Review: Überfahrten. Das Leben Der Margaretha Reibold (1809-1893) In Briefen. Zürich, Leo Schelbert

Book Review: By Wonders And By War. A Novel. Chicago: Swiss-American Historical Society, 1999. Vi, 508 Pp., Christopher Colias

Swiss American Historical Society Review

Often, historians neglect or embellish episodes of the past according to their own biases and viewpoints. Thus, history is a lattice-work of varying interpretations. Yet in Carol Williams' novel, the reader discovers that fiction is sometimes able to fill some of the gaps inherent in this historical lattice-work. Her work, although fictional, respectfully illuminates a contentious and paramount epoch of American history - the American Revolution. With meticulous research and an intimate familiarity with the South Carolina landscape, Williams describes the experience of three Swiss families struggling to make sense of a time in which their world seemed turned upside down.

Book Review: Schattenkrieg Gegen Hitler: Das Dritte Reich Im Visier Der Amerikanischen Geheimdienste, Christof Muenger

Swiss American Historical Society Review

In the 1980' s the United States government decided to declassify the files of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) which was the organization preceding the CIA.

A shortened and revised version of the study ...

One Mistress And No Master: Elizabeth I And Her Use Of Public Personas To Gain And Maintain Power, Michael J. Davye Apr 2000

One Mistress And No Master: Elizabeth I And Her Use Of Public Personas To Gain And Maintain Power, Michael J. Davye

History Theses & Dissertations

The purpose of this thesis is to examine the evolution of the personas that Elizabeth used to gain, hold, and wield power during her reign as Queen of England. These personas were most likely conscious constructs created to deal with the problems Elizabeth faced as ruler of England. She had been bastardized by her father, Henry VIII, and, therefore, was considered by many to have no legitimate claim to the throne. But this problem was almost insignificant in contrast to the problems she faced trying to assert her authority as a female monarch. Elizabeth realized the prevailing wisdom of the ...

Madjaristan: The Ottomans In Hungary 1520-1686, Matthew Pearsall Apr 2000

Madjaristan: The Ottomans In Hungary 1520-1686, Matthew Pearsall

WWU Honors Program Senior Projects

The relationship between the Ottoman Empire and Europe has traditionally been viewed in terms of conflict. History books are full of accounts of the Ottoman conquest of the Balkans and of Constantinople, as well as the conquest of Hungary and the ensuing conflict with the Habsburg Empire, which would stretch into the twentieth century. When the topic turns to questions outside the realm of warfare, however, things become murkier. While the many wars—as well as the occasional bout of peace—between the Ottomans and the West are focused on in detail, the role of the Ottomans in Europe outside ...
