Anti-Suffrage Propaganda

Anti-Suffrage Propaganda | Mr. Jocz's U.S. History Resource Page | Scoop.it
Thank goodness for the failure of those insufferable suffragettes! Why, just imagine the domestic anarchy if the lesser sex were allowed to cast ballots today. Wait...what? Crap. Well, if you crazy...

This set of old "anti-suffrage" propaganda might seem funny, quaint or old-fashioned from our modern lens (or infuriatingly patriarchal), but they are also great primary document to examine the cultural values and political climate of the United States at the turn of the century (even that phrase is old-fashioned and now out of date).  For more see the Choices Program's supplemental board.

This animated GIF of the technological changes within the music industry is fascinating.  First the Vinyl, then cassette, and the CD each were the dominant product for a time.  Today, digital music has superceded any "hard copy" format and that changes how we interact with music.  Musicians aren't trying to make a great album with 10 memorable tracks that blend together; those that spend time resisting these changes to the industry were definitely on the wrong side of history.

So very cool:) Great for illustrating the concept of change over time.
Tony Hall's curator insight, April 11, 2013 12:33 AM

Arlis...absolutely; it's not original with me. I actually saw a similar item all over Jodi's school when I went to visit her in April 2013.

Mr. Burton, How did you add your information on this scoop it? I would love to do this!
Mr. David Burton's comment, July 16, 2014 6:21 PM
Mr. Gates, you create a new posting without a link to another source. Then just give it a title and type in your information. If you want it to permanently stay as the top post then you have to pin it in place.

This gallery of 46 vintage images of the Vietnam War (primarily of U.S. GI's) shows the humanity and the pains of war.  This photoessay is very informative and moving.

Kristen McDaniel's curator insight, March 29, 2013 9:42 AM

Charlie Haughey was assigned as a staff photographer in Vietnam, and took over 2000 photos during his 18 month tour.  The negatives sat for 40 years...until now.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, May 2, 2013 12:25 PM

This video is a classic cultural production that is filled with unintented comedy for today's youth (and adults--I laughed plenty).  It does chronicle the some of the popular culture interactions among youth in that day and dating practices.  It also is a normative production designed to show how things should be within society.  This normative element of earlier TV products (like Leave it to Beaver and Father knows Best) means that they aren't prefect reflections of the society that produced them, but represent an idealized form that many believed should be the aspirational goals of society.
