Of Swastikas & Confederate Flags (Collectibles Vs Living Culture)

Of Swastikas & Confederate Flags (Collectibles Vs Living Culture) | Cultural History | Scoop.it

I was watching Morning Joe and they were freaking out that eBay (and perhaps others) were selling swastikas while removing confederate flags. They said such an announcement to remove the flags was hypocritical and a pandering publicity move.


*sigh*

In Lilli Vincenz’s papers, a trove of gay rights history

In Lilli Vincenz’s papers, a trove of gay rights history | Cultural History | Scoop.it

History is written by the victors, but also by the scrapbookers, the collectors, the keepers, the pack rats. By those who show up, at the beginnings of things and with the right technology. History sometimes comes in pieces. It needs to be reassembled. Pasted and coaxed. Sometimes the finished product still has holes.


In one corner of the climate-controlled manuscript division, on a series of otherwise empty shelves, sits Lilli Vincenz’s unprocessed collection. ...


Twelve boxes. Cream-colored. Heavy. Inside: meticulous fragments of the gay rights movement of the latter half of the 20th century. Political pamphlets, sociological surveys, photographs and obituaries. Diaries of a young woman who was nervous about going into her first gay bar but whose Arlington living room later became the default place for gay women to feel at home.

The Ultimate in Historical Naval Figures: A Lock of John Paul Jones' Hair

The Ultimate in Historical Naval Figures: A Lock of John Paul Jones' Hair | Cultural History | Scoop.it

"The future naval officers, who live within these walls, will find in the career of the man whose life we this day celebrate, not merely a subject for admiration and respect, but an object lesson to be taken into their innermost hearts. . . . Every officer . . . should feel in each fiber of his being an eager desire to emulate the energy, the professional capacity, the indomitable determination and dauntless scorn of death which marked John Paul Jones above all his fellows.”

The Man Who Thought Like a Ship : Past Horizons Archaeology

The Man Who Thought Like a Ship : Past Horizons Archaeology | Cultural History | Scoop.it

The letters nagged at me like a persistent hint from the past. I’d first encountered them among my father’s papers as I researched my book, The Man Who Thought Like a Ship. They pertained to a ship model he’d built in the 1950s of an ancient Egyptian vessel. The model left home before I was born, and everyone, my father included, assumed it had been discarded long ago. I’d only ever seen it in pictures.
