Description : Highlights in the History of the American Press was first published in 1954. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. The articles collected in this volume present a vivid panorama of American journalistic history from its antecedents in the English ballad singers to the press giants of modern times. Since there is probably no single force that has played a greater role in the history of America than its newspapers, the history of journalism tells, in large measure, the story of this country's political, social, and economic development. Therefore, this book of readings offers much to the students of the American scene, past and present, whether they are general readers or specialists in journalism, history, American studies, or any of the social sciences. The 27 articles included here have been chosen particularly for their readability and authenticity. They are by many different writers and are from a wide variety of periodicals published over the past 100 years. They are arranged according to six historical periods, covering the rise of the English press, the Colonial press, the nationalistic press of Revolutionary times, the popular press of the Jacksonian democracy, the transition press following the Civil War, and the modern era of mass circulation. An introductory essay for each group of articles places the individual studies in historical perspective and examines briefly the journalistic events not covered in detail by the articles themselves. The article authors include such notable names in American letters as Gamaliel Bradford, Will Irwin, William Allen White, John Dos Passos, and Henry F. Pringle. The coherent presentation of this diverse material should help anyone interested in the American newspaper get a better view of its broad scope, its lively color, and its profound influence on the course of history.

Description : The Lauren Rogers Museum of Art opened in 1923 as the first art museum in Mississippi. Its rich treasury of works by acclaimed masters focuses on European art, American art, Japanese prints, Native American baskets, and English Georgian silver. This handbook showcases each of these magnificent collections. Comprising eighteenth- and nineteenth-century paintings from the French salon, the Barbizon School, and French realism, the European collection in-cludes canvases by Eugéne Boudin, Jean Fran'ois Millet, Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot, Rosa Bonheur, and others. The American collection of paintings, sculpture, and works on paper is the keystone of the museum's permanent holdings. It includes paintings from the Hudson River School, American impressionism, The Ten, the Ashcan School, American regionalism, and early modernism, as well as other major art movements of the twentieth century. Included are works by Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent, Thomas Moran, Mary Cassatt, Robert Henri, Charles Burchfield, Richmond Barthé, Fairfield Porter, Romare Bearden, and others. Works by master artists Hiroshige, Hokusai, and Utamaro are among 160 woodblock prints in the Japanese ukiyo-e collection. Themes of these prints include landscapes, beautiful women, and theater. Upon the founding of the museum, 500 Native American baskets were the gift of Catherine Marshall Gardiner. Some eighty tribes are represented with remarkable woven objects from the entire continent of North America. The English Georgian silver collection, the gift of Thomas and Harriet Gibbons, exemplifies the highest achieve-ments of master silversmiths of the era. It comprises 105 pieces of sterling, most pieces used for the serving of tea. They include elegant tea caddies, urns, epergnes, and baskets for cakes and sweetmeats. With full-color photographs and detailed descriptions, this handbook is an exciting overview of a remarkable treasury of visual art. The Lauren Rogers Museum of Art is an elegant neo-Georgian edifice located at Fifth Avenue and Seventh Street in Laurel, Mississippi.
