INDIANA / INDIANA UNIVERSITY /CRAZY CRATE JP32 BOOK 2: INDIANA UNIVERSITY, MIDWESTERN PIONEER.  VOLUME 1:    THE EARLY YEARS.  By Thomas D. Clark.. Bloomington:  Indiana University Press.  1970. 371 pages.  Hardcover.  [Note:  Page 244 has some smudge marks.]  When the doors of Indiana Seminary were opened to classes in 1825 the central challenge became at once the broadening of its instructional base in such a way as to shatter the narrow parochialism of the classical academy curriculum which prevailed in America.  There had to be developed a practical educational program and philosophy which unlettered people in the throes of pioneering in virgin country could understand and accept.  The earliest curriculum of Indiana Seminary and University was formulated within the context of two eras of American higher education, 1825 - 1902.  The decades down to 1880 witnessed an eternal struggle to survive, in which little change or innovation could be made.   The post-Civil War era took Indiana University headlong into the vortex of the American intellectual revolution.  In 1883 the University took another philosophical and educational change.  Over thirty photographs enhance the text. Price:  $20.  Now on sale with 10% off at $18.

[Note:  Inscription "Rive Todd, 1977".]  In 1937 an old era ended for Indiana University when a new president,  dynamic Herman B. Wells, came into office.  Determined that Indiana University was not to remain at the foot of the Big Ten ladder, Wells restructured both the faculty and the aims of the University, hiring outstanding research-oriented professors, reorganizing traditional departments, and securing increased appropriations.  New major and graduate courses were developed, and an extensive counseling system was added.  War brought many changes to the campus, and with the influx of veterans at the war's end, the narrow provincialisms of rural Indiana were once and for all destroyed.  The university community experienced more fundamental change in the first postwar years than had occurred in more than a century and a quarter of institutional history.  Thirty-five photographs accompany the text.  Price:  $30.  Now on sale with 10% off at $27.

By Jared. F. Gerig.  Fort Wayne:  Fort Wayne Bible College.  1980.  232 pages.  Softcover.  Note: Inscription:  Julie Ann Ziegler, 1996".  For 75 years Fort Wayne Bible College has been in the business of helping men and women prepare to impact their world for Jesus Christ.  The education of leaders for the church as it carries out the commission given by our Lord is one of its most important functions.  Originally starting in Bluffton, Ohio, as a small-town bible school, the college was transplanted to Fort Wayne, Indiana, where it took deep root and grew and is now a world leader in Bible college education.  Its influence through the spiritual ministries of its graduates has literally reached the ends of the earth.  The author begins with a review of Bible college education in the 1800s, then the beginnings of Bethany House and its expansion.  Each of the presidents is profiled and information is given on various organizations and departments.  Price: $10.  Now on sale with 10% off at $9.

Compiled by Laura E. Kelsay.  Washington:  National Archives.  General Services Administration.  1964.  202 pages.  Hardcover.  The General Land Office, established as a bureau of the Department of the Treasury and later transferred to the Department of the Interior, was engaged chiefly in the survey, management, and disposal of public lands.  Although many of its functions were strictly legal and administrative in character, the surveying and mapping of the public lands were among its most important activities.  As the functions of the Land Office changed overtime, it was reorganized to meet current needs.  The records described in this list constitute four closely related series, three of which are records of the Division of Surveys of the General Land Office.  The fourth series is composed of published records issued by the offices of the Surveyors General and the General Land Office, usually without reference to a division.  The records in the four series date from about 1790 to about 1946.  The four series consist of:
1)  the manuscript and annotated maps unofficially referred to as the "Old Map File,"

2) boundary survey maps and diagrams,   
3) field notes and related records known as "Old Case 'F' File, and
4)  published records.  The forty-page index covers over 3,500 entries.  Price:  $15 Now on sale with 10% off at $13.50.

PENNSYLVANIA / VALLEY FORGE - CRAZY CRATE JP 35 BOOK 2: VALLEY FORGE.  [PENNSYLVANIA].  By Stacy A. Swigart.  Charleston, SC:  Arcadia.  2002.  128 pages.  Softcover.  (Part of the Images of America Series.)  Valley Forge is a name that many Americans associate with George Washington and the American Revolution.  As the site of the 1777-1778 encampment of the Continental Army, it has come to symbolize determination and triumph.  Using the rich historical collections of The National Center for the American Revolution and the Valley Forge Historical Society, this book shares the early twentieth century history of the area through nearly two hundred images, the majority of which are published for the first time in this book.  A variety of historical views and background make this an excellent source of light reading.  Highlights include Washington's Headquarters and the patriotic and inspiring Washington Memorial Chapel, as well as Revolutionary War artifacts, (such as the tent Washington used on many of his encampments) that have found a home in Valley Forge.  This is a behind-the-scenes look at the work done by W. Herbert Burk and a dedicated group of men and women who set out to preserve this important historical site as a symbol of our ancestor's struggle to gain freedom.    Price:  $19.99.  Now on sale with 10% off at $18.

CALIFORNIA / LOS ANGELES - CRAZY CRATE JP35 BOOK 8: LOS ANGELES, [CALIFORNIA] THEN AND NOW.  By Rosemary Lord.  San Diego, CA:  Thunder Bay Press.  2002.  144 pages.  Hardcover.  The Native Americans called Los Angeles the "Land of Smoke" because of the haze that often hangs over the basin early in the morning.  The first Portuguese explorer, Juan Cabrillo, sailed into the bay and called it the "Bay of Smokes".  Later, the Spanish Governor, Felipe de Neve, brought 44 settlers from Mexico and re-named the area "La Reina de los Angeles." Today, settlers from every nation on earth have found their way to Los Angeles, and the city has grown from a small hamlet to a major city.  Kansas prohibitionist Harvey Wilcox sold parcels of his tiny ranch for a development to be called "Figwood".  But his wife changed the name to "Hollywood".  The small train stop called "Morocco" became the elegant Beverly Hills area.  At the turn of the twentieth century movie producers discovered Hollywood and made it the film capital of the world.  Many of the early beautiful buildings were torn down in the 1960's to "modernize" the area, but historical societies managed to save many buildings from destruction and have restored them.  Surviving disastrous floods, fires, riots and, of course, earthquakes, Los Angeles continues to charm residents and visitors alike.  138 full-page photographs match historic nineteenth and early twentieth century black-and-white images with full-color photographs of modern Los Angeles, showing how the multifaceted, multicultural "Dream City" has evolved.    The index covers over 180 entries.  Price: $15.  Now on sale with 10% off at $13.50.

CALIFORNIA / SAN FRANCISCO / EAST BAY - CRAZY CRATE JP35 BOOK 9: EAST BAY THEN AND NOW. [SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, CALIFORNIA.]  By Dennis Evanosky and Eric J. Kos.  San Diego, CA:  Thunder Bay Press.  2004.  144 pages.  Hardcover.  History has divided the East Bay, the San Francisco Bay's Eastern shore, into three parts.  In its agricultural south, farms once helped feed the larger northern and western cities.  An urban heart beats from the center, which is home to the flagship of one of the world's greatest university systems, the University of California.  International industry and shipping dominated the economy in the north, where oil - the lifeblood of industry - is still refined.    The East Bay was first known as Contra Costa - the opposite shore.  Native Americans first inhabited the area.  The Spanish visited the region in the 18th century and settled at Mission San Jose and awarded veterans of their army huge land grants in the area.  When gold was discovered in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in 1848, men and women came from all over the world to make their fortunes.  Most were unsuccessful, but they founded new cities.  These cities are celebrated here:  Mission San Jose, Niles, and Irvington - all of which became part of the city of Fremont in 1956 - Hayward, San Leandro, Oakland, Alameda, Berkeley, Albany, el Cerrito, and Richmond.  This fascinating book looks back at the way things were and shows how dynamics have shaped things into what they are today. 138 full-page photographs match historic nineteenth and early twentieth century black-and-white images with full color photographs of modern East Bay.  The index covers nearly 400 entries.  Price:  $15.  Now on sale with 10% off at $13.50.

BIOGRAPHY / CONFEDERACY / ROBERT TOOMBS & ALEXANDER STEPHENS - CRAZY CRATE JP36 BOOK 2: THE UNION THAT  SHAPED THE CONFEDERACY.  ROBERT TOOMBS AND ALEXANDER H. STEPHENS.  By William C. Davis.  Lawrence, KS:  University Press of Kansas.  2001.  284 pages.  Hardcover. [ Note:  ex-library copy.]  With style and authority that has made him one of our most popular historians of the Civil War, William C. Davis has written a biography of a friendship that captures the Confederacy in microcosm.  He tells how two  Georgians - one a robust charmer given  to fits of passion and the other a frail, melancholy man of quiet intellect forged a friendship that dominated the formation of the new  nation as Vice President and Secretary of State.  Davis traces the unlikely relationship from their early days in the Georgia state legislature, through the trials of secession and war, revealing how both men persevered during the war and developed a deep animosity toward Jefferson Davis.  He then chronicles their postwar lives up to the death of Stephens, who died only four months after being elected the Governor of Georgia.  Toombs died in 1885.  Price:  $7.50.  Now on sale with 10% off at $6.75.

INDIANA / CENTENNIAL FARMS - CRAZY CRATE JP36 BOOK 10: CENTENNIAL FARMS OF INDIANA.  Edited by M. Teresa Baer, Kathleen M. Breen and Judith O. McMullen.  With Genealogical Indexes by Ruth Dorrel.   Indianapolis:  Indiana Historical Society.  2003.  122 pages.  Softcover.  In 1947, in conjunction with Purdue University, the Indiana Historical Society began a program, originally called Pioneer Farms, to honor families who had owned a particular farm for one hundred years or longer.  At that time about 45 percent of Indiana's population was still rural.  Nearly 700 family farms were identified in this study.  This book takes the results of that survey and makes the information available to everyone.  Genealogists will especially like the format, which includes three detailed alphabetical indexes, including an index to the name of the original land owners of the farms and the dates they purchased the property, an index to the descendants currently owning the farm, and an index to the counties in which the farms are located.  Over sixty historic farm photographs accompany this book.  Price:  $24.95.  Now on sale with 10% off at $22.50.

By John C. Carlisle.  Photography by Darryl Jones.  Indianapolis:  Indiana Historical Society.  1995.  93 pages.  Softcover.  In 1933, at the height of the depression, the Treasury Department's Advisory Committee on Fine Arts, along with its invited guests Eleanor Roosevelt and the directors of eight of the major art museums in the country, met in Washington, D. C. to develop plans for the employment of  unemployed artists.  By the end of the meeting, the Public Work of Art Project was a reality. The Civil Works Administration allocated money to employ artists to decorate public buildings and parks.  One of the major construction projects funded by the New Deal Congress included the erection of new post office buildings in many communities throughout the country.  The Post Office served as the most public of all public buildings, and this program of painting murals in post offices would allow the people all over the country to view at least one thing of beauty.  Thirty-seven mural commissions were executed for Indiana post offices, with thirty-six of them remaining today.   The art program gave artists the exposure and experience, as well as income, during difficult times.  When the federal patronage ended, some artists were still able to earn a livelihood.  Many disappeared from the art scene and are virtually unknown. This volume gives a brief history of the federal arts programs and then focuses on the histories of the thirty-six murals still evident in Indiana.  The color photography of Darryl Jones brings the murals to life and shows the detail and workmanship of these artists.  Close up details are shows on several of the murals, making a total of 71 color photographs of these historic treasures.  This is an excellent addition for anyone who collects Post Office materials or is interested in 1930's art.  Price:  $15.  Now on sale with 10% off at $13.50.

A) THE CHRONICLERS.  By the Editors of Time-Life Books.  With Text by Keith Wheeler.  Alexandria, VA:  Time-Life Books.  1976.  240 pages.  Hardcover.  (Time-Life Series of the Old West.)  [Note:  Ex library copy.]  In 1832, when the immense wilderness beyond the Mississippi was inhabited by fewer than 20,000 Americans, the novelist Washington Irving headed west on horseback.  His purpose was to observe and write of "those great Indian tribes, which are now about to disappear as independent nations."  Irving was followed by hundreds of other writers, artists, newspaper reporters, and photographers, who chronicled daily life in small towns and lonely ranches, wild majestic landscapes and more. Using contemporary photographs, drawings and illustrations, letters and diaries, the author presents a highly-readable history of the American West from those who saw it first hand.  150 photographs and illustrations enhance the text.  The three-page index covers nearly 500 entries.  B) THE SOLDIERS.  By the Editors of Time-Life Books.  With Text by David Nevin.  Alexandria, VA:  Time-Life Books.  1974.  239 pages.  Hardcover.  (Time-Life Series of the Old West.).  [Note:  Ex-library copy.]  Fear, fatigue, poor rations and little appreciation from his countrymen - that was the lot of the U. S. soldier whose job it was to enforce the nation's arrogant and often muddleheaded Indian policies.  In 1845 the territory from the Mississippi to the Pacific Coast was the home of more than 300.000 proud, possessive Indians.  Less than 50 years later, the Army had established complete control over the West, and not a single truly free Indian was left. Using contemporary photographs, drawings and illustrations, letters and diaries, the author presents a highly-readable  history of the United States Army in the American West.  130 photographs and illustrations enhance the text.  The three-page index covers nearly 500 entries.  Price for the set:  $10.  Now on sale with 10% off at $8.

CRAZY CRATE JP40 BOOK 8: STUDIES ON INDIANA:  A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THESES AND DISSERTATIONS SUBMITTED TO INDIANA INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION FOR ADVANCED DEGREES, 1902 - 1977.  Indianapolis:  Indiana Historical Bureau.  1980.  377 pages.  Softcover.  This book is an excellent source for researchers looking for lost gems on Indiana history.  Many of the theses and dissertations have never been published for commercial purposes, so their significance is often overlooked.  In no other writings has the state of Indiana been studied in such detail as in the theses and dissertations submitted to Indiana institutions of higher education.  Each Indiana institution was visited if it had a graduate program requiring a thesis or dissertation.  2,727 dissertation entries are broken down into an alphabetical list of ninety subject categories based upon the system used by Dissertation Abstracts International.  Civil War, ethnic groups, cities, counties, migrations and much more are included in the dissertations.  The entry includes the name of the author, the title, the name of the educational institution, the degree for which the dissertation was written, the date and number of pages.   The 32-page author index contains nearly 2,400 names.  The 16-page Name and Subject Index covers nearly 1,000 entries.   Price:  $12.  Now on sale with 10% off at $10.80.
