Back to the Hickok chair.
Pretty quiet in here today; lot of folks leaving town for post-Summer II holiday breaks.
The texts are, from top to bottom:
Mahar, Behind the Burnt Cork Mask(see yesterday's literature review)
Strasbaugh, Black Like You
Sampson, Blacks in Blackface
Would have got farther through the Strasbaugh notes and transcription, but was waylaid by news of a new campus-wide initiative offering large grants-in-aid in support of:
- "stimulat[ing] the generation of innovative new research efforts [demonstrating] academic merit, ingenuity and innovation"
- "foster[ing] creativity"
- "building large, multidisciplinary programs"
- "introduc[ing] new, novel areas of academic activity"
The banana is for potassium--welcome to your late '40s!
Back to work.
