Book excerpt: Much has been written of the Lindbergh-Hauptmann Kidnapping Trial of 1934. This book examines what actually happened in the town of Flemington, New Jersey, a sleepy farm town that became, for a few months, the center of the universe. The first weekend of “The Trial of the Century,” the town saw 50,000 people arrive. Over 700 reporters were on hand as well as 150 photographers and countless sketch artists. Nellie’s Bar in the Union Hotel became a landmark for those who got to drink there while prostitutes roamed the streets, paying newsboys tips for “Johns.” Every famous news writer and commentator of the day was there – Adela Rogers St. Johns, Damon Runyon, Dorothy Kilgallen, Walter Winchell, Gabriel Heater, etc. This book examines what they wrote and what they said in their own words as well as colorful stories about each of them. Some of the most famous sketch artists and cartoonists of the times were also there and this book examines what they produced on a daily basis. Flemington, the trial and the times are shown in a light heretofore not described in other books.

Book excerpt: This story highlight character traits with alliteration and personification. The animals are depicted as human-like characters. Have you ever known animals to care about how other animals behaved? You are about to experience a group of extraordinary animals that believe in the importance of having good character traits. These animals rely on one another to accomplish a positive experience. Some of the characters depicted are concerned about the quality of good character traits such as being accountable, committed, compassionate, cooperative, courageous, honest, kind, leaders, neighborly, respectful, responsible, and trustworthy. Long ago in a community called Love Land, there lived animals with good character traits. Love Land was invaded by animals with bad character that were taking over the land of good to turn it into a land of animals with bad or negative character. Love Land was once a peaceful place but became full of chaos and confusion. Find out why good character traits are necessary to accomplish positive results and how poor character traits can produce negative or non-productive results during a time when the circus came to town.

This book was released on 2020-03-24 with total page 0 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: “The photographs in this book focus on the people—from midway artists to roustabouts, from performers and their families to the audiences who watch them each night—who create the magic of the circus. Rogala’s work presents the highs and lows of circus life with a powerful combination of documentary pragmatism and empathy that conveys day-to-day details with a sense of wonder. Her rich black-and-white images follow light and shadow (and dust) from set up to rehearsal to performance, with color photography underscoring the drama of a red tent against a clear blue sky or the flash of sequins under the spotlight…. Dynamism and a spirit of collaboration are at the heart of circus life, animate Rogala’s archive, and are central to scholarship at the Smithsonian.” (From the introduction) Nearly two decades after Dawn Rogala’s time behind the scenes at America’s circuses, Dawn Rogala donated her photography archive to the National Museum of American History. The Rogala Collection is the basis for Rogala and colleagues David Haberstich and Shannon Perich to combine in one volume their complementary expertise in photography. Rogala’s essay revisits her time as a young photographer, documenting day-to-day struggles and triumphs of the workers who create a world of wonder for the rest of us. Haberstich reviews the history of documentary photography with an emphasis on depictions of people and their work, placing Rogala’s photographs in the context of the history of traveling societies and immigrant groups. Perich explores the changing roles and relationships between photography and the circus, both of which matured amid industrialized economy, and discusses the Rogala Collection’s place in a long history of circus photography.

Book excerpt: Dan Bollom believes there are no unimportant jobs. Thus, there are no unimportant people. In this refreshingly honest memoir, Bollom relates how this down-to-earth philosophy shaped his success in life. Throughout his early years in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, Bollom experienced first-hand the difficulties and sacrifices of the Great Depression and World War II, but he also enjoyed the simple pleasures of life. Whether it was the circus coming to town, hunting and fishing near their Spring Brook shanty for the family meal, or participating in the local softball team, Bollom learned valuable lessons about hard work, dedication, and the necessity of laughter. Bollom's persistence and drive to succeed paid off. He graduated from college and landed a job at Wisconsin Public Service as an accountant. With steady determination, he moved up the ranks through the years, married and had a family, and never lost sight of his goals, eventually achieving the rank of president and CEO of the company, a position he retired from in 1997. Candid and humorous, What Makes Dan Bollom So Tall? intimately shows how one man's success was not an end, but a never-ending journey.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Bark River valley in southeastern Wisconsin is a microcosm of the state's - indeed, of the Great Lakes region's - natural and human history. "The Bark River Chronicles" reports one couple's journey by canoe from the river's headwaters to its confluence with the Rock River and several miles farther downstream to Lake Koshkonong. Along the way, it tells the stories of Ice Age glaciation, the effigy mound builders, the Black Hawk War, early settlement and the development of waterpower sites, and recent efforts to remove old dams and mitigate the damage done by water pollution and invasive species. Along with these big stories, the book recounts dozens of little stories associated with sites along the river. The winter ice harvest, grain milling technology, a key supreme court decision regarding toxic waste disposal, a small-town circus, a scheme to link the Great Lakes to the Mississippi River by canal, the murder of a Chicago mobster, controversies over race and social class in Waukesha County's lake country, community efforts to clean up the river and restore a marsh, visits to places associated with the work of important Wisconsin writers - these and many other stories belong to the Bark River chronicles. For the two voyageurs who paddle the length of the Bark, it is a journey of rediscovery and exploration. As they glide through marshes, woods, farmland, and cities, they acquire not only historical and environmental knowledge but also a renewed sense of the place in which they live. Maps and historical photographs help the reader share their experience.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: She would appear in more than thirty films and be named after a Road Atlas by Cecil B Demille. A football play would be named after her. She would appear on To Tell the Truth. She would be arrested six times in one day for indecency. She would be immortalized in the final scene of The Right Stuff, cartoons, popular culture, and live on as the iconic symbol of the Chicago World’s Fair of 1933. She would pave the way for every sex symbol to follow from Marilyn Monroe to Lady Gaga. She would die penniless and in debt. In the end, Sammy Davis Jr. would write her a $10,000 check when she had nothing left. Her name was Sally Rand. You can draw a line from her to Lana Turner, Marilyn Monroe, Raquel Welch, Ann Margret, Madonna, and Lady Gaga. She broke the mold in 1933, by proclaiming the female body as something beautiful and taking it out of the strip club with her ethereal fan dance. She was a poor girl from the Ozarks who ran away with a carnival, then joined the circus, and finally made it to Hollywood where Cecil B Demille set her on the road to fame with silent movies. When the talkies came her career collapsed, and she ended up in Chicago, broke, sleeping in alleys. Two ostrich feathers in a second-hand store rescued her from obscurity.

These Poems have been written over many years, but through it all I am still experiencing Life, (and then some). Life has taught me that they are all 'just experiences' and as Rudyard Kipling said of Success and Failure ... Treat these two imposters just the same. I am still 'hooked' on the same love of my life, my wife Norma, I still feel pain ... but I know that Joy will follow. They seem to be worth writing to me, I know that some people have enjoyed them ... you will have to let me know. DEW

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For the person familiar with Lambertville and interested in its history there are many details; the city's growth, modernization, conflicts, and entertainments.There is a more universal story here as well. The years commencing with the Civil War and ending with the Spanish American War are often labeled the Victorian Age. It was a period of industrialization, westward expansion, invention, and social upheaval. These movements have been researched and described in many books of American history. By examining the local columns of a newspaper, one gets a glimpse into the impact these larger events and movements had on ordinary life. A historic movement, a new invention, a political shift arouses the historian's analysis and paints our picture of the times. But how did the ordinary individual who was living at that time see and experience these historic events? This book addresses this question.
