Recollections of a Scientist 1: Boyhood and Youth in Australia (1925-1948) This illustrated book is the first volume of the Memoirs of a distinguished, internationally renowned scientist, Professor Norman N. Greenwood, FRS. It gives a lively and intimate account of his boyhood and youth in Australia during the nineteen thirties and forties and is divided into thirteen chapters. It is a personal account rather than a formal history and describes in refreshing detail his richly diverse experiences. Chapter 1 explains how he came to be born in Melbourne although both of his parents as well as his elder sister and younger brother were all born in Northern England---his father Professor John Neill Greenwood had just been appointed as the first Professor of Metallurgy in an Australian University. The scene is further set by a brief account of the extraordinary events that led up to the founding of the University of Melbourne following the Victorian Gold Rush of the mid nineteenth century and its subsequent development into one of the major Universities of the then British Empire. The young family settled in Mont Albert, one of the developing eastern suburbs of the expanding metropolis, but unfortunately his parents separated soon afterwards and subsequently divorced. The children moved with their mother to the neighbouring suburb of Surrey Hills and one of her sisters came out from England to help with the growing family. Norman goes on to describe the various schools he attended and has some perceptive comments on his teachers, the ethos of the schools and the gradual changes that have occurred in the approach to education in Victoria over the years since the nineteen thirties. Initially vacations were spent at a country cottage being built by his father at Kinglake in the densely wooded hills to the north of Melbourne, and Norman evokes a childhood view of the exotic plants and animals of the bush, the deep secluded tree-fern gullies and tumbling mountain streams. His father was one of the main protagonists for the development of the Kinglake National Park which he had helped to found. Tragically, much of the Park was engulfed by the enormous bush fires (the worst in Australia’s history) that wiped out the little township of Kinglake with great loss of life in February 2009. Other holidays were spent on the beaches of Port Phillip Bay or on the cooler slopes of the Dandenong Ranges to the east. Norman and his younger brother Eric (always known in his youth as Peter or ‘Nipper’) loved roaming in the Olinda State Forest and Sherwood Forest where the tall mountain ash (eucalyptus) trees towered above the dense undergrowth of tree ferns and other plants. Bush animals abounded as did the raucous cockatoos and multicoloured parrots. The great prize, however, was to sight a lyre bird performing his stately dance and singing his amazing repertoire of all the other birds’ songs and even the man-mad sounds of car horns, chain saws and steam engines. For the three years 1939-40-41 Norman attended University High School near the city centre and adjacent to the grounds of the University itself. It was a remarkable school with an excellent academic reputation but also known for fostering of musical talent and for its prowess in sport. Norman joined the School Orchestra (as second flute) and they gave concerts in the Melbourne Town Hall and occasionally on the State broadcasting station 3LO. He also edited the School Magazine, The Record, perhaps an early portent of his later prolific output of scientific research papers, reviews, monographs and textbooks. In the summer vacation of January 1940 (during which Norman had his fifteenth birthday) he went on and extended (1300 mile) concert-party tour of twenty eight country towns in Western Victoria and over the border into South Australia. The trip was organised by the Young Australia League (YAL) and took the form of a White Minstrels Review of thirty boys with songs, i

This new edition of Southern Writers assumes its distinguished predecessor's place as the essential reference on literary artists of the American South. Broadly expanded and thoroughly revised, it boasts 604 entries-nearly double the earlier edition's-written by 264 scholars. For every figure major and minor, from the venerable and canonical to the fresh and innovative, a biographical sketch and chronological list of published works provide comprehensive, concise, up-to-date information. Here in one convenient source are the South's novelists and short story writers, poets and dramatists, memoirists and essayists, journalists, scholars, and biographers from the colonial period to the twenty-first century. What constitutes a "southern writer" is always a matter for debate. Editors Joseph M. Flora and Amber Vogel have used a generous definition that turns on having a significant connection to the region, in either a personal or literary sense. New to this volume are younger writers who have emerged in the quarter century since the dictionary's original publication, as well as older talents previously unknown or unacknowledged. For almost every writer found in the previous edition, a new biography has been commissioned. Drawn from the very best minds on southern literature and covering the full spectrum of its practitioners, Southern Writers is an indispensable reference book for anyone intrigued by the subject.

Conjectures of Order

In this magisterial history of intellectual life, Michael O'Brien analyzes the lives and works of antebellum Southern thinkers and reintegrates the South into the larger tradition of American and European intellectual history. O'Brien finds that the evolution of Southern intellectual life paralleled and modified developments across the Atlantic by moving from a late Enlightenment sensibility to Romanticism and, lastly, to an early form of realism. Volume 1 describes the social underpinnings of the Southern intellect by examining patterns of travel and migration; the formation of ideas on race, gender, ethnicity, locality, and class; and the structures of discourse, expressed in manuscripts and print culture. In Volume 2, O'Brien looks at the genres that became characteristic of Southern thought. Throughout, he pays careful attention to the many individuals who fashioned the Southern mind, including John C. Calhoun, Louisa McCord, James Henley Thornwell, and George Fitzhugh. Placing the South in the larger tradition of American and European intellectual history while recovering the contributions of numerous influential thinkers and writers, O'Brien's masterwork demonstrates the sophistication and complexity of Southern intellectual life before 1860.

At Home in Nineteenth Century America

Few institutions were as central to nineteenth-century American culture as the home. Emerging in the 1820s as a sentimental space apart from the public world of commerce and politics, the Victorian home transcended its initial association with the private lives of the white, native-born bourgeoisie to cross lines of race, ethnicity, class, and region. Throughout the nineteenth century, home was celebrated as a moral force, domesticity moved freely into the worlds of politics and reform, and home and marketplace repeatedly remade each other. At Home in Nineteenth-Century America draws upon advice manuals, architectural designs, personal accounts, popular fiction, advertising images, and reform literature to revisit the variety of places Americans called home. Entering into middle-class suburban houses, slave cabins, working-class tenements, frontier dugouts, urban settlement houses, it explores the shifting interpretations and experiences of these spaces from within and without. Nineteenth-century homes and notions of domesticity seem simultaneously distant and familiar. This sense of surprise and recognition is ideal for the study of history, preparing us to view the past with curiosity and empathy, inspiring comparisons to the spaces we inhabit today—malls, movie theaters, city streets, and college campuses. Permitting us to listen closely to the nineteenth century’s sweeping conversation about home in its various guises, At Home in Nineteenth-Century America encourages us to hear our contemporary conversation about the significance and meaning of home anew while appreciating the lingering imprint of past ideals.
