  • This is a reference book. The reader has the right to expect a clearly defined scope, specific criteria for inclusion, and 100 percent inclusion of everything that meets those criteria. Those were the objectives of A Biographical Dictionary of the Baseball Hall of Fame when the first edition was published in 2000. They remain the same with this second edition—which has been updated to include more than 50 new biographies of players, managers, umpires, baseball executives, broadcasters and writers who have earned their place among the greats of the game in the past eight years.

  • On March 2, 2005, President George W. Bush greeted Rachel Robinson in the Capitol rotunda in Washington, D.C., and gently placed into her hand the Congressional Gold Medal in the name of her deceased husband, Jack Roosevelt Robinson. The ceremony of awarding the gold medal—the highest civilian honor that can be presented by Congress—took place nearly fi fty-eight years after Robinson played his fi rst Major League baseball game for the Brooklyn Dodgers. On that day in April 1947, Robinson’s presence in the lineup represented a giant step for integration.

  • John Stuart Mill in his "Autobiography" declares with truth that "the world would be astonished if it knew how great a proportion of its brightest ornaments, of those most distinguished even in popular estimation for wisdom and virtue are complete sceptics in religion." Many of these, as Mill points out, refrain from various motives from speaking out. The work I have undertaken will, I trust, do something to show how many of the world's worthiest men and women have been Freethinkers. My Dictionary does not pretend to be a complete list of those who have rendered services to Freethought.

  • A Philadelphian had been talking with my mother of North and South, and had alluded to the engagement between the Essex and the Arkansas, on the Mississippi, as a brilliant victory for the Federal navy. My mother protested, at once; said that she and her sister Miriam, and several friends, had been witnesses, from the levee, to the fact that the Confederates had fired and abandoned their own ship when the machinery broke down, after two shots had been exchanged: the Federals, cautiously turning the point, had then captured but a smoking hulk.

Content specialists find and acquire the rights to materials, write abstracts for the resources on the site, enter data, and maintain the site catalog—a resource-intensive process that ensures quality while slowing somewhat the provision of resources. A search engine allows users to find the materials in which they are interested.

  • Toxicogenomics has been described as a discipline combining ex- pertise in toxicology, genetics, molecular biology, and environmental health to elucidate the response of living organisms to stressful environ- ments. It includes the study of how genomes respond to toxicant expo- sures and how genotype affects responses to toxicant exposures. As the technologies for monitoring these responses rapidly develop, it is critical that scientists and regulators are confident that the technologies are reli- able and reproducible and that the data analyses have been validated.

  • Water utilities have a long history of planning in preparation for emergencies, particularly natural disasters. But contingency and emergency planning has taken on a new dimension with current concern about potential threats to water system security. The range of crises that have become plausible has expanded, and utilities now are considering more robust security procedures and emergency plans than they have historically had in place. When it comes to ensuring a water system’s security, few utilities, regardless of size or geographic location, can function independently.

  • It is just eleven years since Kinglake passed away, and his life has not yet been separately memorialized. A few years more, and the personal side of him would be irrecoverable, though by personality, no less than by authorship, he made his contemporary mark. When a tomb has been closed for centuries, the effaced lineaments of its tenant can be re-coloured only by the idealizing hand of genius, as Scott drew Claverhouse, and Carlyle drew Cromwell. But, to the biographer of the lately dead, men have a right to say, as Saul said to the Witch of Endor, "Call up Samuel!" In your study of...

  • The following is a brief sketch of the life of one who, though perhaps more widely known as the Proprietor and Founder of Pennsylvania, was also eminent as a minister of the gospel in the Society of Friends, and distinguished for his superior intellectual abilities, his varied culture, and, above all, for his devoted Christian character, exemplified both in adversity and prosperity. It is taken principally from a work entitled "Friends in the Seventeenth Century.

  • We are reminded daily of the uncertainty of human life: for the young and the old, the gay and the grave, the good and the wicked, are subject to death. Young people do not realize this, but it is nevertheless true, and before you are old enough, my children, to understand and lay to heart all that your mother would tell you of her dearly beloved father, she may be asleep with grandma, close beside him in Bellefontaine. An earthly inheritance is highly esteemed among men. For this reason great efforts are made by them to lay up treasures for their children. They know not,...

  • The hanging of several anarchists in 1887 as a consequence of the Haymarket bombing in Chicago caused many Americans to sympathize with the gibbeted radicals. Youths swathed in bright idealism, men and women rooted in equalitarian democracy, workers trusting in the rectitude of their government--all doubted the guilt of the condemned prisoners and were deeply perturbed by the egregious miscarriage of justice.

  • Having visited the South for the benefit of my health, I arrived at Savannah, in Georgia, on the 10th of February, 1834; and, indulging the common inquisitiveness of a stranger about the place, was informed that just one hundred and one years had elapsed since the first settlers were landed there, and the city laid out. Replies to other inquiries, and especially a perusal of McCall's History of the State, excited a lively interest in the character of General OGLETHORPE, who was the founder of the Colony, and in the measures which he pursued for its advancement, defence, and prosperity.

  • When Edward Temple was about eight or nine years old he was afflicted with a disorder of the eyes. It was so severe, and his sight was naturally so delicate, that the surgeon felt some apprehensions lest the boy should become totally blind. He therefore gave strict directions to keep him in a darkened chamber, with a bandage over his eyes. Not a ray of the blessed light of heaven could be suffered to visit the poor lad. This was a sad thing for Edward. It was just the same as if there were to be no more sunshine, nor moonlight, nor glow of the...
