The Colonelette

On September 22, 1949, Shirley Cupp, Irma Beisel, Frances Stuckey and Mr. Hilary Bufton Jr. met in a coffee shop in downtown Kansas City to incorporate the American Business Women’s Association (ABWA).

Their newsletter, “The Colonelette,” was started in June 1964. Also ...

Article from the University of Maine student newspaper The Maine Campus regarding a Faculty Senate vote on the University observing Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a school holiday.

Recognize Martin Luther King Day, Kathleen March

Social Justice: Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Each academic year as January nears the University of Maine begins to think again about Martin Luther King, about the day officially designated to honor his life and teachings. Like several other national holidays, this one currently does not bring with it a day off from classes at this university. Several reasons have been cited for this: one is the academic year is already too short.


The Rest Of The Kingdom On The Mississippi: Mormon Settlement Patterns In Illinois 1838-1846, R Philip Reynolds Dec 1997

The Rest Of The Kingdom On The Mississippi: Mormon Settlement Patterns In Illinois 1838-1846, R Philip Reynolds

Library Faculty and Staff Presentations

Mormon settlement outside of Nauvoo, Illinois is one of the most neglected topics in Mormon history. Most discussion concerning Mormons between 1839 and 1846 is limited to Nauvoo although, as one researcher put it: "Mormon contact in Illinois was infinitely larger."1 After further investigation these settlements emerge as being far more important to Mormon history and the city of Nauvoo than this neglect suggests.

Social Justice: Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

The Attorney General's Office reached an agreement late last week with Casey Belanger, the University of Maine student accused of sending threatening e-mail to several folders on the FirstClass computer system. Both Belangers and the judge have signed a "consent judgement," permanently restraining him from harassing anyone of the minority status, according to Assistant Attorney General Stephen Wessler.

“The Muhlenberg County [Kentucky] Heritage” was published four times a year by the Muhlenberg County Genealogical Society in Greenville, Kentucky, from 1978 to 2001. The cover title sometimes appears as “The Heritage.” The publication’s purpose was to support the society and to publish information about the genealogy, culture, and history of Muhlenberg County. A separate annual index was printed each year for volumes 1-14. Afterwards, each issue was indexed separately. Generally, the index is to surnames only.


The Wilsonian Dilemma, Mark Hall Dec 1997

The Wilsonian Dilemma, Mark Hall

Faculty Publications - Department of History and Politics

This essay explores James Wilson’s approach to the so-called “Madisonian Dilemma. ” I first explain how the tension between majority rule and minority rights was more extreme for Wilson than for most founders. I then show how his view of human nature and moral epistemology allowed him to resolve the dilemma. Although Wilson’s solution may be less realistic than Madison’s, it is still worthy of serious consideration because of its influence on the creation of America’s constitutional system.

The National German-American Alliance, 1901 -1918: Cultural Politics And Ethnicity In Peace And War, Charles Thomas Johnson

Dissertations

The purpose of this dissertation is to tell the story of the National German- American Alliance, an organization of middle to upper-middle class well-educated professionals formed in 1901 to promote and preserve aspects of German culture in the United States. Increasingly, however, it found itself drawn into controversial political and diplomatic issues in the rapid political, social and international change that marked the first two decades of the twentieth century.

The dissertation begins with a review of German-America from colonial times to 1899 and serves as a background for the founding of the Alliance within the context of the growth ...


The Idaho Territorial Penitentiary's First Female Inmate, Fred E. Woods Dec 1997

The Idaho Territorial Penitentiary's First Female Inmate, Fred E. Woods

Faculty Publications

While doing research on the experience of Mormon polygamists incarcerated at the Idaho Penitentiary, Fred Woods became curious about a woman imprisoned there at the same time. The Idaho Penitentiary's Convict Register names "Heneba" as the first female inmate received, on May 31, 1887. Next to her name is written in parentheses "squaw." For many years it has been unclear whether "Heneba" was her first or last name and what the background of this mysterious Native American was. Information about her age at the time of her incarceration, her family life, and the details of her later years and ...

Feeling The Managed-Care Pinch, Paul Livingstone Nov 1997

Feeling The Managed-Care Pinch, Paul Livingstone

Social Justice: Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

I never paid much attention to HMOs until I began hearing the occasional managed-care horror story (the one about bone-marrow transplant denials comes to mind) and realized I was one of those untold millions living under the auspices of a managed care company. A perennial favorite of the news media, managed care has received a healthy dose of concerned prodding over the last few years over its practices.

Hate Crimes By Teens Disturbing, Maine Campus

Social Justice: Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

If the stories of hate crimes told at last week's "Bridges of Respect" conference in Ellsworth are any indication, Maine has a long way to go in educating its youths about tolerance and respect for civil rights.


Policy May Jeopardize Safety, Kathryn Ritchie Nov 1997

Policy May Jeopardize Safety, Kathryn Ritchie

Social Justice: Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

An informed community is a safe community, according to Public Safety Police Lt. Alan Stormann, but recent actions suggest the campus police are only willing to go so far in keeping the community informed. In 1996, seven "forcible rapes" were reported in the university's annual safety and security information report. The definition of forcible rape includes forcible "fondling, non-forcible incest and statutory rape." Of the seven reported "forcible rapes," according to Lt. Stormann, three were actual rapes, one was an attempted rape, two involved offensive touching and the last one involved a man masturbating on a woman. Of the ...
