Camilot And Rocking Robins

©Renee 2012

Camilot and Rocking Robin’s. I decided to open a club. It has a forest setting, like Sherwood Forest. We have waiting staff dressed as Robin Hood, Littlejohn, Friar Tuck, Maid Marion etc..

Lots of live robins nest in the real trees in a screened courtyard for snacks and drinks. It is beautiful. Won’t you join us for dinner ?

That name Robin. It is just so musical.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smokey_Robinson
    William “Smokey” Robinson, Jr. (born February 19, 1940) is an American R&B singer-songwriter, record producer, and former record executive. Robinson was the founder and front man of the popular Motown vocal group The Miracles, for which he also served as the group’s chief songwriter and producer. Robinson led the group from its 1955 origins as The Five Chimes until 1972 when he announced a retirement from the stage to focus on his role as Motown’s vice president.

    However, Robinson returned to the music industry as a solo artist the following year, later having solo hits such as “Baby That’s Backatcha”, “A Quiet Storm”, “The Agony and the Ecstasy”, “Cruisin'”, “Being With You” and “Just to See Her”. Following the sale of Motown Records in 1988, Robinson left Motown in 1990. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Miracles
    The Miracles were an American rhythm and blues group that was the first successful recording act for Motown Records in the 1960s. Formed in 1955 by Smokey Robinson,Warren “Pete” Moore, and Ronnie White, the group started off as The Five Chimes, changing their name to The Matadors two years later. The group then settled on The Miracles after the inclusion of Claudette Robinson in 1958. The most notable Miracles lineup included the Robinsons, Pete Moore, Ronald White, Bobby Rogers and Marv Tarplin. After a failed audition with Brunswick Records, the group began working with songwriter Berry Gordy, who helped to produce their first records for the End and Chess record labels before establishing Tamla Records in 1959 signing the Miracles as its first act. The group eventually scored the label’s first million-selling hit with “Shop Around” in 1960 and further established themselves as one of Motown’s top acts with the hit singles, “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me”, “Mickey’s Monkey”, “Going to a Go-Go”, “Ooo Baby Baby”, “Tracks of My Tears” and “My Girl Has Gone”.

    Referred to as Motown’s “soul supergroup”,[1] the Miracles recorded 26 Billboard Top 40 hits, including 16 top 20 singles,six top ten singles and a number-one while Robinson was with the group. Following the departure of Marv Tarplin and the Robinsons, the rest of the group continued with singer Billy Griffin and scored two final top forty singles,the top 20 “Do It Baby” and the number-one hit “Love Machine”, before departing for Columbia Records in 1977 recording as a quintet with Donald Griffin, where after a few releases, they disbanded in 1978. The group continued sporadically as a touring unit until the remaining original Miracle, Bobby Rogers, was forced into retirement due to health issues in 2011.

    The group has been given many honors over the years. In 1997, the group received the Pioneer Award at the Rhythm and Blues Foundation for their musical achievements.[2] Four years later, in 2001, they were inducted to the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.[3] In 2004, they were ranked thirty-two on the Rolling Stone magazine’s list of 100 Greatest Artists of All Time, reaching the same position seven years later, in 2011.[4] Throughout their careers, the Miracles were also enshrined with honors for their songwriting by both BMI and ASCAP.[5][6] In 2008, Billboard listed them at #61 on their 100 most successful Billboard artists ever list.[7] After much controversy, the Miracles were inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

    Bobby Rogers (born Robert E. Rogers on February 19, 1940) is an American soul singer and songwriter, notable as a member of Motown Records’ first signed act and first million selling group The Miracles from 1956 to present. He is also a 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, and is the grandfather of R&B singer Brandi Williams from R&B girl group Blaque.

    Rogers is the son of the late Robert & Lois Rogers. He was born on February 19, 1940 the same day and in the same Detroit hospital as fellow Miracles member Smokey Robinson, although the two would not meet until 15 years later.

    On December 18, 1963 Rogers married Wanda Young, the lead singer of Motown group The Marvelettes. They had several children together and divorced in 1975 after twelve years of marriage. In 1981 Rogers married Joan Hughes on his birthday. The wedding ceremony was officiated by the late Cecil Franklin (older brother of Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin). Rogers and his wife Joan reared four children (Bobbae, Gina, Kimberly & Robert III) all are now adults. Rogers currently resides between his primary residence in suburban Detroit, Michigan and a Beverly Hills, California piedaterre with wife Joan.

    Rogers’ cousin, Claudette Rogers, was also a member of the Miracles, and later married Smokey Robinson.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calbraith_Perry_Rodgers
    Rodgers was born on January 12, 1879, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and later lived in Havre de Grace, Maryland. He contracted scarlet fever which left him deaf in one ear and hearing impaired in the other ear.[1]

    He was related to Commodores Oliver Hazard Perry and Matthew Calbraith Perry and had a cousin, John Rodgers, in the Navy’s Aerial Corps, learning to fly the Navy’s newly purchased Wright airplane.

    In March 1911, he visited John at the Wright Company factory and flying school in Dayton, Ohio and became interested in aviation. He received 90 minutes of flying lessons from Orville Wright, and on August 7, 1911, he took his official flying examination at Huffman Prairie and became the 49th aviator licensed to fly by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale.[2] He was one of the first civilians to purchase a Wright Flyer.

    [edit] Cross country flightPublisher William Randolph Hearst offered the Hearst prize, US$50,000 to the first aviator to fly coast to coast, in either direction, in less than 30 days from start to finish. Rodgers had J. Ogden Armour, of Armour and Company, sponsor the flight, and in return he named the plane, a Wright Model EX designed for exhibition flights, after Armour’s grape soft drink Vin Fiz.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norman_Armour
    Norman Armour (October 14, 1887– September 27, 1982) was a career United States diplomat who The New York Times once called “the perfect diplomat”. In his long career spanning both World Wars, he served as Chief of Mission in eight countries, as Assistant Secretary of State for Political Affairs, and married into Russian nobility.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Lloyd_Wright
    Wright did not get along well with Sullivan’s other draftsmen; he wrote that several violent altercations occurred between them during the first years of his apprenticeship. For that matter, Sullivan showed very little respect for his employees as well.[14] In spite of this, “Sullivan took [Wright] under his wing and gave him great design responsibility.” As a show of respect, Wright would later refer to Sullivan as Lieber Meister (German for “Dear Master”).[15] Wright also formed a bond with office foreman Paul Mueller. Wright would later engage Mueller to build several of his public and commercial buildings between 1903 and 1923.[16]

    Wright’s home in Oak Park, IllinoisOn June 1, 1889, Wright married his first wife, Catherine Lee “Kitty” Tobin (1871–1959).

    Wright attended a Madison high school, but there is no evidence he ever graduated.[4] He was admitted to the University of Wisconsin–Madison as a special student in 1886. There he joined Phi Delta Theta fraternity,[5] took classes part-time for two semesters, and worked with a professor of civil engineering, Allan D. Conover.

    Frank Lloyd Wright was married three times and fathered seven children, four sons and three daughters. He also adopted Svetlana Milanoff, the daughter of his third wife, Olgivanna Lloyd Wright.[74]

    His wives were:

    Catherine “Kitty” (Tobin) Wright (1871–1959); social worker, socialite (married in June 1889; divorced November 1922)
    Maude “Miriam” (Noel) Wright (1869–1930), artist (married in November 1923; divorced August 1927)
    Olga Ivanovna “Olgivanna” (Lazovich Milanoff) Lloyd Wright (1897–1985), dancer and writer (married in August 1928)
    One of Wright’s sons, Frank Lloyd Wright Jr., known as Lloyd Wright, was also a notable architect in Los Angeles. Lloyd Wright’s son (and Wright’s grandson), Eric Lloyd Wright, is currently an architect in Malibu, California where he has a practice of mostly residences, but also civic and commercial buildings.

    Another son and architect, John Lloyd Wright, invented Lincoln Logs in 1918, and practiced extensively in the San Diego area. John’s daughter, Elizabeth Wright Ingraham, is an architect in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She is the mother of Christine, an interior designer in Connecticut, and Catherine, an architecture professor at the Pratt Institute.[75]

    Wright designed a house for David Samuel Wright, his son by his first marriage to Catherine, and David’s wife, Gladys.[76][77]

    The Oscar-winning actress Anne Baxter was Wright’s granddaughter. Baxter was the daughter of Catherine Baxter, a child born of Wright’s first marriage. Baxter’s daughter, Melissa Galt, currently lives and works in Atlanta as an interior designer.[75]

    His step-daughter Svetlana (daughter of Olgivanna) and her son Daniel died in an automobile accident in 1946. Her widower, William Wesley Peters, was later briefly married to Svetlana Alliluyeva, the youngest child and only daughter of Joseph Stalin. They divorced after she could not adjust to the communal lifestyle of the Wright communities, which she compared to life in the Soviet Union under her father, and because of the constant interference of Wright’s widow. Peters served as Chairman of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation from 1985 to 1991.

    A great-grandson of Wright, S. Lloyd Natof, currently lives and works in Chicago as a master woodworker who specializes in the design and creation of custom wood furniture.[78]

    [edit] ArchivesPhotographs and other archival materials are held by the Ryerson & Burnham Libraries at the Art Institute of Chicago. The Herbert and Katherine Jacobs Residence and Frank Lloyd Wright Records, 1924–1974, Collection includes drawings, correspondence, and other materials documenting the construction of two homes for the Jacobs as well as research files on Wright’s life. The Frank Lloyd Wright in Michigan Collection, 1945–1988, consists of research documents, including photocopied correspondence between Wright and his clients, used for the book “Frank Lloyd Wright in Michigan.

    Jim Robinson was born circa 1850 in Friendfield Plantation, Georgetown County, South Carolina, United States . He married Louiser unknown (c1855-?) .

    Jim Robinson was born about 1850 on the Friendfield plantation. All that is known of his parents is that they were slaves on the plantation and were both born in South Carolina, probably during the 1820s. Robinson gained his freedom in 1865 at the end of the American Civil War. He chose to remain on the plantation as a sharecropper.

    Robinson appears in the 1880 census, with his wife Louisa (written “Louiser” by the census taker) and three children. He has not yet been definitely identified in any later census returns, though his children can be traced.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cass_Elliot
    Cass Elliot (born Ellen Naomi Cohen; September 19, 1941 – July 29, 1974), also known as Mama Cass, was an American singer and member of The Mamas & the Papas. After the group broke up, she released five solo albums. In 1998, Elliot, John Phillips, Denny Doherty, and Michelle Phillips were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for their work as The Mamas & the Papas.

    Elliot was born Ellen Naomi Cohen to Philip and Bess Cohen in Baltimore, Maryland. She had a younger sister, Leah, who also became a singer as a member of the Coyote Sisters.

    The Cohens later moved to Alexandria, Virginia (a suburb of Washington, D.C.). She adopted the name “Cass” in high school—possibly, as Denny Doherty tells it, borrowing it from the actress Peggy Cass—but in any case, it was “Cass”, not “Cassandra.” She assumed the surname Elliot sometime later, in memory of a friend who had died. While still attending George Washington High School, she became interested in acting and was cast in a school production of the play The Boy Friend. She left high school shortly before graduation and relocated to New York City to further her acting career. She toured in the musical The Music Man, but lost the part of Miss Marmelstein in I Can Get It for You Wholesale, to Barbra Streisand in 1962.

    [edit] Early career
    Cass Elliot with Tim Rose and James Hendricks as part of the Big 3While working as a cloakroom attendant at The Showplace in Greenwich Village in New York, Elliot would sometimes sing, but it wasn’t until she returned to the Washington D.C. area, to attend American University, that she began to pursue a singing career. As America’s folk music scene was on the rise, Elliot met banjoist and singer Tim Rose and singer John Brown, and the three began performing as The Triumvirate. In 1963, James Hendricks replaced Brown and the trio was renamed The Big 3. Elliot’s first recording with The Big 3 was Winkin’, Blinkin’ and Nod, was released by FM Records in 1963. In 1964, the group appeared on an “open mike” night at The Bitter End in Greenwich Village, billed as “Cass Elliot and the Big 3”, followed onstage by bluegrass banjoist Eric Weissberg (“Dueling Banjos” soundtrack in the 1972 film Deliverance) and folksinger Jim Fosso.

    When Tim Rose left The Big 3 in 1964, Elliot and Hendricks teamed with Canadians Zal Yanovsky and Denny Doherty to form The Mugwumps. This group lasted eight months, after which Cass performed as a solo act for a while. Yanovsky and John Sebastian co-founded The Lovin’ Spoonful, while Doherty joined The New Journeymen, a group that also included John Phillips and his wife, Michelle. In 1965, Doherty convinced Phillips that Elliot should join the group which she did while she and the group members were vacationing in the Virgin Islands.

    Elliot was married twice, the first time in 1963 to James Hendricks, her groupmate in The Big 3 and The Mugwumps. This was reportedly a platonic arrangement to assist him in avoiding being drafted into the army during the Vietnam War;[9] the marriage reportedly was never consummated and was annulled in 1968.[10] In 1971, Elliot married journalist Baron Donald von Wiedenman[11][12] who was heir to a Bavarian barony. Their marriage ended in divorce after a few months.

    Elliot gave birth to a daughter, Owen Vanessa Elliot, on April 26, 1967. She never publicly identified the father, but many years later, Michelle Phillips helped Owen locate her biological father.[13] After her death, Elliot’s younger sister, Leah Kunkel, received custody of Owen, then just seven years old. Owen grew up to become a singer as well and toured with Beach Boy member Al Jardine.

      Russell Kunkel (September 1, 1948), also known as Russ Kunkel, is an American drummer and producer who has worked as a session musician with many of well-known artists including Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Stevie Nicks, Carole King, Jackson Browne and Linda Ronstadt. He is widely regarded as the top session drummer of the 1970s and early ’80s.

      Kunkel was born in Pittsburgh, PA. In the 1970s, Kunkel worked so frequently with bassist Leland Sklar, guitarist Danny Kortchmar, and keyboardist Craig Doerge that they eventually became known as “The Section” and recorded three albums under that name between 1972 and 1977.

      Kunkel had a cameo as doomed drummer Eric “Stumpy Joe” Childs in the 1984 film This Is Spinal Tap.

      Kunkel was engaged to Carly Simon from 1985–86 and married the singer Nicolette Larson in 1990. They had a daughter, Elsie May Larson-Kunkel. He was previously married to Leah Cohen, younger sister of Cass Elliot, and together they raised Elliot’s daughter, Owen Vanessa. They have a son, Nathaniel, an Emmy Award winning sound engineer.

      In 2010 Kunkel joined the Troubadour Reunion Tour supporting James Taylor and Carole King.

    Developing: 1940 New York Census Shows Obama Alias
    Harrison Bounel Born In 1890; Once Lived In Connecticut
    [ SEE UPDATE BELOW ]

    As reported here back in May of 2011 skip-tracer and debt collector Al Hendershot uncovered an alias tied to Barack Obama’s Connecticut social security number and Michelle Obama. The following short clip is taken from Hendershot’s original TruNews interview that aired back in 2011. He explains how the three are tied together:

    Dr. Orly Taitz found the 1940 New York Census at Ancestry.com. The image below is taken from that census which list Harry Bounel and also shows he was born in 1890. That is the same year connected to Obama’s social security number. It’s also reported Bounel lived in Connecticut at one point. Obama’s social security number is a number reserved for CT applicants.

    Here are some excerpts from Dr. Taitz’s blog on her research efforts in regards to Bounel:

    According to 1940 census Harry Bounel was born in Russia in 1890. This is the date of birth on some of Lexis records associated with the Social Security number 042-68-4425, worked as a helper in a store. It is hard to read the name of the store, looks like Zonick store . I will try to get records from Russia. I just got off the phone with a Russian reporter. Also, we had some records showing Harry Bounel residing with Robinson family in CT in 1910. I need help in getting any and all info on Michele Robinson Obama’s great grand mother Rose Ella Cohen, the name strikes me as a name of a Jewish woman from Russia. I need to know, if she was married before she married Robinson. […]

    We see Bounel residing in CT in 1910. The Social Security was issued in 1977 in CT. He was 87 at that time. There was a hospital next to Newton. It was a Newtown psychiatric hospital, where some elderly without family resided their last days. The hospital later was renamed to Fairfield state hospital. This is where the bodies of the Sandy Hook victims were taken for autopsy. What is interesting, is that the hospital contained not only death records, it also for some reason contained immigration and deportation records. My guess is, that most of the info was scrubbed, however these people are sloppy. They did not flatten the PDF file and we got direct connection between Obama and this Ct SSN 042-68-4425 straight from the horses mouth, from the Squatter in Chief Obama. […]

    I see Newtown is right next to DANBURY (where you had placed the switched identities Obama and his Connecticut Social Security number. You had surmised that the identity was taken from someone at a local Danbury NURSING HOME. The official name of the “Newtown nut house” was the FAIRFIELD STATE HOSPITAL. (renamed Fairfield Hills Hospital). Mentally ill patients who had died were buried on site. […]

    What we found out that in 1976-1977, when new SSN laws were adopted, when this CT SNN 042-68-4425 was issued either in Danbury or in Stamford CT Social Security office (both near the hospital) elderly individuals needed to get a SSN in order to get medicare benefits. When people were elderly or patients in the psychiatric hospital, the applications were filled out by the hospital employees. (I saw patients in an advanced Alzheimer’s facility in Ca voting in each and every election. I wonder, how are they voting . So, if elderly Bounel was in this facility, his SSN application was filled out by the hospital personal and signed by the hospital administrator. Please, hurry, everything is being scrubbed as we speak!!! I need any and all info on Harry Bounel, his whereabouts, his Social Security number, place and time of death and all of the info on Rose Ella Cohen, paternal great grand mother of Michelle Obama. […] – Dr. Taitz’s full posting here: http://www.orlytaitzesq.com/?p=379483

    More details about the Bounel connection here: http://obamareleaseyourrecords.blogspot.com/search?q=al+hendershot

    UPDATE: I discovered the reference to Harry Bounel in the 1940 census back in Oct 2012 and have been working with Albert Hendershot quietly for three months now to get CONCRETE proof that this is the original holder of O’s social security number. Orly’s information is misleading. First the Bounel in the Bronx census is a white man born in 1890 Russia, and he became a naturalized citizen. The Bonnel that she believes was living with Michelle’s family in CT is not the same man. The one in CT is listed as born 1860, with a different name spelling, and is mulatto. She is confusing information.

    Secondly, there is no known connection to the Newtown CT area nor to any of the hospitals there. A death certificate for Harry Bounel born in Russia has not yet been found. She is running on assumptions. She is assuming that the Bonnel showing in the 1910 census and the one in the 1940 census in NY are the same person. They are not.

    Third, and finally, none of her information can be proved until a death certificate for Harry Bounel is found. I have personally submitted FOIAs to the SS admin and have gone back and forth with them for three months now trying to get information. They are asking for proof of death. What I have done with them DOES show a positive inference that O is using Bounel’s SS#, however it is not proof and won’t stand up in a court of law. My research will now be hampered by Orly prematurely publishing the connection and including misinformation. Any headway I’ve gained will now be shut down because all avenues to gain documentation will be closed. This is the reason Al and I were keeping this to ourselves so we could find actual proof, not supposition. I had the SS admin in check and was going in for the checkmate, but now that she’s published this all doors to documentary proof will be closed.

    Al, and I, will publish an article about what I’ve done shortly, now that we’ve been forced into being public about it by Orly once again grasping at straws and prematurely tipping our hand.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Robin_Records
    Red Robin Records was a record label that began in 1951 as “Robin Records” in New York. Owner Bobby Robinson was unaware that another company was already using the name “Robin” and after about four releases was forced to change to “Red Robin” to avoid litigation. Robinson also opened Fury Records in late 1956 and Fire Records in 1959.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bobby_Robinson_(record_producer)
    Bobby Robinson (April 16, 1917 – January 7, 2011)[1] was an American independent record producer and songwriter in New York, most active from the 1950s through the mid 1980s. He produced hits by Wilbert Harrison, The Shirelles, Dave “Baby” Cortez, Elmore James, Lee Dorsey, Gladys Knight & The Pips, King Curtis, Spoonie Gee, Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, Doug E. Fresh, and Treacherous Three. He founded or co-founded Red Robin Records, Whirlin’ Disc Records, Fury Records, Fire Records and Enjoy Records.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilbert_Harrison
    Wilbert Charles Harrison (January 5, 1929 – October 26, 1994) was an American rhythm and blues singer, pianist, guitarist and harmonica player.[1]

    Born in Charlotte, North Carolina, United States, Harrison had a Billboard #1 record in 1959 with the song “Kansas City”.[1] The song was written in 1952 and was one of the first credited collaborations by the team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc.[2] Harrison recorded “Kansas City” for the Harlem based entrepreneur Bobby Robinson.

    Harrison recorded for the Fire and Fury record labels, which were owned and operated by Robinson. After this success, Harrison continued to perform and record but it would be another ten years before he recorded “Let’s Stick Together” that went to # 32 on the Billboard Hot 100, and a re-worked version titled “Let’s Work Together” was later a hit for Canned Heat and Bryan Ferry.[1] It was also recorded by country rock band The Kentucky Headhunters for the soundtrack to the movie, Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man. In 1970, Harrison had some success with “My Heart Is Yours”,[1] and he toured for many years with a band known as ‘Wilbert Harrison and The Roamers’, as well as a solo act.

    Harrison died of a stroke in 1994,[3] in a Spencer, North Carolina nursing home at the age of 65.

    In 2001, his recording of “Kansas City” was given a Grammy Hall of Fame Award, and has also been named as one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. He was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame in 2009.[4]

    Bobby Robinson (April 16, 1917 – January 7, 2011)[1] was an American independent record producer and songwriter in New York, most active from the 1950s through the mid 1980s. He produced hits by Wilbert Harrison, The Shirelles, Dave “Baby” Cortez, Elmore James, Lee Dorsey, Gladys Knight & The Pips, King Curtis, Spoonie Gee, Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five, Doug E. Fresh, and Treacherous Three. He founded or co-founded Red Robin Records, Whirlin’ Disc Records, Fury Records, Fire Records and Enjoy Records.

    Born in Union, South Carolina,[1] Robinson served in the US Army in World War II.[3] After the war, Robinson moved to New York City and opened “Bobby’s Record Shop” (later “Bobby’s Happy House”) in 1946.[4] His was the first black-owned business on Harlem’s famed 125th Street. Located on the corner of 125th St. and Frederick Douglass Boulevard (formerly, “8th Avenue”), his shop remained open until January 21, 2008, forced to close only because its landlord planned to raze the building for new construction. Robinson’s store outlasted large chain store competitors, including HMV and the Wiz.

    The store became a focal point for the independent record producers establishing themselves in New York, and Robinson spent some time assisting Ahmet Ertegun at Atlantic Records.[4] He produced his first recording, “Bobby’s Boogie” by saxophonist Morris Lane and his band, in 1951, but originally specialised in recording vocal groups including the Mello-Moods, the Rainbows, the Vocaleers and the Du-Droppers. However, he also recorded blues performers such as Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee, and had his first major success with “Shake Baby Shake” by Champion Jack Dupree in 1953. The record was released on Red Robin Records, which Robinson had established the previous year, originally under the name Robin Records until forced to change the name after legal threats by another company.[2][5]

    Having enjoyed healthy local sales with doo-wop and blues discs in the early-to-mid-1950s, he established several more record labels in the 1950s and 1960s, some in partnership with his brother, Danny Robinson. Among them were Whirlin’ Disc Records in 1956, Fury Records and Everlast Records in 1957, Fire Records in 1959, and Enjoy Records in 1962. He launched Fire and Fury as vehicles for rhythm and blues and rock and roll artists, most of which were produced by him in New York, but some were produced by others and acquired by him in various Southern cities.

    Robinson produced numerous million-selling records by such notable performers as Wilbert Harrison, The Shirelles, Lee Dorsey, and Dave “Baby” Cortez. One of his earliest hits was Harrison’s “Kansas City”, over which he faced legal action brought by Herman Lubinsky of Savoy Records, who claimed he had Harrison under contract.[3] Robinson produced Gladys Knight & the Pips’ first hit, “Every Beat of My Heart” (after he signed them to Fury; the original version was recorded in Atlanta, issued locally on Hintom and leased to Vee Jay, who had the bigger hit). Robinson produced several of Elmore James’ greatest records as well as recordings by other leading blues musicians including Lightnin’ Hopkins, Arthur Crudup, and Buster Brown.[2] King Curtis’s “Soul Twist” was the first release of his Enjoy label in 1962, and over twenty years later, he released the highly successful hit, “I’m The Packman (Eat Everything I Can)” by The Packman, on the same label. The rights to Robinson’s recordings on Fire and Fury were sold to Bell Records in 1965.[3]

    Compilation album producer Diana Reid Haig wrote:[6]

    “The common thread that connected all of Robinson’s various record labels was his uncanny ability to bring out the best in his artists. While most producers at that time attempted to soften the edges of rhythm & blues singers in hopes of appealing to the pop market, Robinson delighted in capturing raw-edged artists like Elmore James and Buster Brown just as they were.”

    In the 1970s, Robinson produced some of the first hip-hop music records for his “Enjoy” label and had considerable influence and success in that genre through the mid-1980s. He achieved another success in 1979, when he recorded Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five’s first record, “Superrappin'”, an innovative record which was very influential in hip-hop’s early years. A local hit among New York area hip-hop fans, the music industry, however, was not ready for the new sound, and the record failed to hit nationwide.

    Robinson then went to commercial success with other old school hip hop artists, including Pumpkin and Friends, the Funky Four Plus One More, Spoonie Gee (Robinson’s nephew), and Kool Moe Dee with the Treacherous Three.

    Robinson chalked up yet another success when he produced Doug E. Fresh’s “Just Having Fun (Do The Beatbox)”, which introduced beatboxing to the record-buying public.

    Robinson died on January 7, 2011 at the age of 93, after a period of declining health.

    ***NOTE***
    Robinson produced several of Elmore James’ greatest records as well as recordings by other leading blues musicians including Lightnin’ Hopkins, Arthur Crudup, and Buster Brown.[2] King Curtis’s “Soul Twist” was the first release of his Enjoy label in 1962, and over twenty years later, he released the highly successful hit, “I’m The Packman (Eat Everything I Can)” by The Packman, on the same label. The rights to Robinson’s recordings on Fire and Fury were sold to Bell Records in 1965.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bell_Records
    Bell Records was an American record label founded in 1952 by Arthur Shimkin in New York, the owner of children’s record label Golden Records,[1] and initially a unit of Pocket Books,[2] after the rights to the name were acquired from Benny Bell who used the Bell name to issue risque novelty records.[3] A British branch was also active in the 1960s and 1970s. Bell Records was reorganized in November 1974, which was the birth of Arista Records.

    Upon its inception in 1952, Bell specialized in budget generic pop music, with the slogan “music for the millions”. Originally sold on seven-inch 78rpm and 45rpm records for 39 cents (US), this style of music went out of fashion as rock and roll became more prevalent. Sound-alike cover versions of hit records were also issued on 78rpm as well as 45rpm disks priced at 49 cents.

    One of these records was by “Tom & Jerry” who would later be famous using their real names Simon & Garfunkel.[5]

    Instead of being pressed into vinyl like a normal 7-inch disc,these records were injection molded using polystyrene, which had either glued-on labels or the label information was printed directly on the polystyrene, rendering many copies almost unreadable years later. Most (but not all) Bell and associated label 45rpm records were similarly injection-molded all the way into the 1970s.[6][7]

    As Al Massler, the head of record manufacturer Bestway Products, had become head of Bell Records in 1959, Mala Records was then formed as a Bell subsidiary label, specializing in rock and roll along with rhythm and blues .[8]

    [edit] 1960s
    Bell Records logo used from 1964 to 1969.In 1960, Amy Records was formed as yet another subsidiary label, focusing on a lot of what would come to be known as northern soul and/or blue-eyed soul acts. The following year, Larry Uttal folded his Madison Records label into Bell after purchasing the label, along with its Amy and Mala subsidiary labels. Concentrating his efforts on the Amy and Mala labels, Uttal rendered the Bell parent label dormant until 1964, when the label was revived, featuring a logo utilizing a stylized “BELL” word mark shaped like a bell.

    In 1966, the Bell label was expanded internationally[9] and the company decided to issue all their albums, even for Amy and Mala acts, on the Bell label, and went on to issue several hit singles, including, “I’m Your Puppet” by James and Bobby Purify in 1966, “The Letter” by The Box Tops (the single on Mala, the album on Bell) in 1967, “Angel of the Morning” by Merrilee Rush & The Turnabouts in 1968, and “Gimme Gimme Good Lovin” by Crazy Elephant in 1969.

    Later that year, after the three labels were merged into a single unit, retaining the Bell moniker, the combined company was then acquired by Colgems Records’ parent company Columbia Pictures, expanding its roster of acts when Colgems, previously distributed by RCA, was folded into the newly purchased company. Retaining ownership of a portion of the new company and remaining as Bell’s president, Larry Uttal was instrumental in signing many soon-to-be-famous acts such as The Partridge Family, Ricky Segall, The 5th Dimension and Tony Orlando & Dawn as well as adopting a new logo:

    1970s thick-stripe version of the US record label. The UK label had a similar design[edit] 1970sBy 1970, the Bell label was more successful with pop music singles, and less successful with more lucrative pop music LPs. When Uttal left the company in 1974 to begin his own label Private Stock Records, Columbia Pictures music consultant Clive Davis, took over as President and would merge the various Columbia Pictures legacy labels (Colpix Records, Colgems Records, and Bell) into a new entity renamed Arista Records later that year,[10] ultimately buying a percentage of the company from Columbia.

    Bell had its final #1 hit in January 1975 with Barry Manilow’s “Mandy” (Bell 45,613), followed shortly by the label’s final hit, as well as its final single, “Look in My Eyes Pretty Woman” by Tony Orlando and Dawn (Bell 45,620—US #11) after which the more successful Bell albums were reissued on Arista. The very last releases utilizing the Bell imprint have the designation “Bell Records, Distributed by Arista Records, 1776 Broadway, New York, New York 10019” around the rim of the label.

    [edit] Bell Records UKThe British branch was established in 1967.[11] Previous British issues of Bell recordings were on EMI’s Stateside Records. Bell/Amy/Mala’s association with EMI dates back to 1964.[12] Bell Records in London was headed by Dick Leahy and distributed by EMI (In other foreign territories, Polydor handled distribution which later picked up British distribution.). Artists signed to them included the Bay City Rollers, Gary Glitter, Showaddywaddy, The Glitter Band, and US acts Reparata and the Delrons and The Partridge Family with David Cassidy. Other artists on the label included Barry Blue, Barry Manilow, Terry Jacks, Hello, The Piglets, The Pearls and Harley Quinne, The Drifters and the UK releases of The Box Tops.

    Bell UK initially kept its identity when Bell US was reorganized into Arista in 1974,[13] but a year later, although releases continued on the UK Bell label until 1976, the UK label adopted the Arista name in 1975.[14] Showaddywaddy released the last Bell single, “Under the Moon of Love”, which reached No.1 in December 1976 [15] before Arista UK briefly revived the label in 1981.[16] The Bell logo has made occasional appearances on the jackets and labels of Arista UK releases.

    [edit] Current ownershipThe former catalog of Bell Records and its related labels is now owned by Sony Music Entertainment (now a sister company of Columbia Pictures) and managed by Legacy Recordings.

    Always looking neat, handsome, professional and well informed, Collin Powell has been a part of the military insiders network for a long time. He knows most of the old timer stories and is still cordial and close to our old leaders so when Mr Powell opens up on the birth certificate stories of Obama, I listen well to what he has to say, and I find this statement and it’s timing very interesting.

    On inauguration day 2013, Mr Powell comments on the birth certificate ?

    And during the meal, Mrs Obama looked to be in a mood. I thought she would be very happy and social on this day ?

    Amid continuing questions into Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Sandy Hook, Libor Scandal, MF Global and so on, this was quite a strange party package. Again, thank you Mr Powell, it IS time to answer questions and put this to rest. We all agree.

    Ahmad Rashād (born Robert Earl Moore on November 19, 1949) is an American sportscaster (mostly with NBC Sports) and former professional football player. An All-American running back and wide receiver from Oregon known as Bobby Moore, Rashad was the fourth overall pick in the 1972 NFL Draft, drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals. He was the first skill-position player taken, following three linemen.

    Rashād was converted back to wide receiver while with the Cardinals, where he played for two seasons. He then played for the Buffalo Bills (1974–1976), the Seattle Seahawks (1976), and, most notably, the Minnesota Vikings (1976–1982), where he earned four Pro Bowl selections from 1978 to 1981.

    Eldred Gregory Peck was born in La Jolla, California, the son of Missouri-born Bernice Mae “Bunny” (née Ayres) and Gregory Pearl Peck, a New York-born chemist and pharmacist. His father was of Irish (maternal) heritage and English (paternal) heritage,[2][3] while his mother had Scottish and English ancestry.[4] Peck’s father was a Catholic and his mother converted to the religion upon marrying his father. Peck was related to Thomas Ashe, who took part in the Easter Rising fewer than three weeks after Peck’s birth and died while on hunger strike in 1917, through his Irish-born paternal grandmother, Catherine Ashe. Peck’s parents divorced by the time he was six years old and he spent the next few years being raised by his maternal grandmother.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Submitters_International
    United Submitters International (also called the Submitters) is a reformist moderate Islamic religious community, and is a branch of Quraniyoon. It follows the teachings of Rashad Khalifa who is regarded in this faith as God’s messenger of the Covenant, who claims to be prophesied in the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the Quran.[1] The majority of Muslims consider him and his belief as heretical. Submission is a religion whereby one recognizes God’s absolute authority, and reaches a conviction that only God possesses all power; no other entity possesses any power that is independent of Him. The natural result of such a realization is to devote one’s life and one’s worship absolutely to God alone. This is the First Commandment common to all three scriptures: Old Testament, New Testament and Final Testament (The Quran).[2]

    The original group attended a mosque in Tucson, Arizona, which was originally founded by Dr. Rashad Khalifa in the United States of America. The Submitters can now be found throughout the world.[citation needed]

    Dr. Khalifa was assassinated on January 31st 1990. On December 19, 2012, a jury found Glen Francis guilty of first-degree murder.[3] Prior to the Francis trial, a person named ‘James William’ who is in the extremist group Al-Fuqra’, based in Pakistan led by Sheikh Gilani[citation needed] was convicted of conspiracy in the slaying.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rashad_Khalifa
    Rashad Khalifa (Arabic: رشاد خليفة‎; November 19, 1935–January 31, 1990) was an Egyptian-American biochemist, closely associated with the United Submitters International. He was assassinated in 1990.

    Khalifa was born in Egypt on November 19, 1935. His father was a Sufi who is reported to have led a group with thousands of followers.[1]

    Khalifa obtained an honors degree from Ain Shams University, Egypt, before he emigrated to the United States in 1959, later earning a Master’s Degree in biochemistry from Arizona State University and a PhD. from University of California.[1] He became a naturalized U.S. citizen and lived in Tucson, Arizona.[citation needed]

    Khalifa worked as a science adviser for the Libyan government for about one year, after which he worked as a chemist for the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, then became a senior chemist in Arizona’s State Office of Chemistry in 1980.[citation needed] Khalifa’s son, Sam Khalifa, played for the Pittsburgh Pirates and was the first major league player of Egyptian descent.[2]

    He was central to the founding of the United Submitters International, (USI), an offshoot Islamic group that usually prefers not to use the terms “Muslim” or “Islam,” instead using the English equivalents “Submitter” and “Submission.”[3]

    [edit] DoctrineMain article: United Submitters International
    Khalifa said that he was a messenger (rasool) of God and that the Archangel Gabriel ‘most assertively’ told him that chapter 36, verse 3, of the Quran, ‘specifically’ referred to him.[4][5] His followers refer to him as God’s Messenger of the Covenant.[6] He promoted a strict monotheism and was a prominent Quranist, rejecting the hadith and sunnah as fabrications attributed to prophet Muhammad by later scholars.

    He wrote that the Quran contains a mathematical structure based on the number 19 and making the controversial claim that the last two the verses of chapter nine in the Quran were not canonical, telling his followers to reject them.[citation needed]> Starting in 1968, Khalifa used computers to analyze the frequency of letters and words in the Quran. In 1974, he claimed that he had discovered a mathematical code in the text of the Qur’an involving the number 19. The details of this analysis are available in his book, Quran, the Final Testament.[7]

    Khalifa’s research did not receive much attention in the West. In 1980, Martin Gardner mentioned it in Scientific American.[8] Gardner later wrote a more extensive and critical review of Khalifa and his work.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Gardner
    Martin Gardner (October 21, 1914 – May 22, 2010)[1][2] was an American popular mathematics and science writer specializing in recreational mathematics, but with interests encompassing micromagic, stage magic, literature (especially the writings of Lewis Carroll and G.K. Chesterton), philosophy, scientific skepticism, and religion.[3] He wrote the Mathematical Games column in Scientific American from 1956 to 1981 and the Notes of a Fringe-Watcher column in Skeptical Inquirer from 1983 to 2002 and published more than 100 books.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malcolm_X
    Malcolm X (pron.: /ˈmælkəm ˈɛks/; May 19, 1925 – February 21, 1965), born Malcolm Little and also known as El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz[1] (Arabic: الحاجّ مالك الشباز‎), was an African-American Muslim minister and human rights activist. To his admirers, he was a courageous advocate for the rights of blacks, a man who indicted white America in the harshest terms for its crimes against black Americans. Detractors accused him of preaching racism, black supremacy, and violence. He has been called one of the greatest and most influential African Americans in history.

    Malcolm X’s father died—killed by white supremacists, it was rumored—when he was young, and at least one of his uncles was lynched. When he was thirteen, his mother was placed in a mental hospital, and he was placed in a series of foster homes. In 1946, at age 20, he went to prison for breaking and entering.

    In prison, Malcolm X became a member of the Nation of Islam; after his parole in 1952, he quickly rose to become one of its leaders. For a dozen years, Malcolm X was the public face of the controversial group, but disillusionment with Nation of Islam head Elijah Muhammad led him to leave the Nation in March 1964. After a period of travel in Africa and the Middle East, he returned to the United States, where he founded Muslim Mosque, Inc. and the Organization of Afro-American Unity. In February 1965, less than a year after leaving the Nation of Islam, he was assassinated by three members of the group.

    R.H. Johnson, longtime president of Del E. Webb Foundation that contributed to many Wickenburg projects, passed away at home Tuesday morning (July 22) with wife Marjorie at his side.
    Johnson began working for Del E. Webb in 1935, whom he met while taking notes at an Arizona Contractors meeting, and rose in the company to eventually be second in command under Webb and president of the company.
    Johnson retired recently from active management of the Del E. Webb Foundation.
    A memorial service and celebration of Johnson’s life will be held Wednesday, July 30 at 10 a.m. at the Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Wickenburg Community Hospital and Hospice of the Valley.
    More details of R.H.’s life and a full obituary will appear in next week’s edition.

    The Wickenburg Sun, Wickenburg, AZ
    July 30, 2008, p. A10
    R.H. Johnson passed away July 22 at the age of 92 at his home in Wickenburg with wife Marjorie at his side. A memorial service celebrating his life will be held at 10 a.m. today (Wednesday, July 30) at the Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts (1090 S. Vulture Mine Road) in Wickenburg.

    Robert Howard Johnson, an Arizona native, was born Feb. 26, 1916 at the family home located at 1904 E. Tempe Road (now Van Buren Road) to his mother Bessie Hornbeck Johnson and father Alfred Johnson. His father was employed by Phoenix Trunk Factory on West Washington where he manufactured trunks that were strapped on the rear of automobiles of the period. His mother worked at the Boston Store in Tempe.

    Johnson attended Monroe and Longfellow schools and graduated from Phoenix Union High School in 1933. He couldn’t afford college, but he put himself through business school, the Great Western Business College in the Heard Building, and he swept the floors each night for tuition. He learned short hand and mastered typing at 120 words per minute. While attending business school, Johnson worked for the Association of General Contractors in a secretarial job, commuting to work on foot each morning at 5 a.m. In 1935, Del Webb came by the AGC offices looking for a timekeeper for his six-man office. At the age of 19 Johnson got the nod and began his career with the Del E. Webb Construction Co. at $75 per month on a dormitory construction project at Northern Arizona University.

    Johnson believed in hard work, and Webb was quickly aware of R.H.’s attention to detail and work ethic. Webb became his friend and mentor. By 1967 Webb had selected Johnson to be the president of the company. Then the Webb firm had grown to be active in 34 states from Hawaii to New York. The corporation’s lifelines were leisure, real estate and construction, including properties like La Posada, Mountain Shadows, the Sahara Hotel in Nevada, veteran’s hospitals across the United States and the Sun City development. Prior to Webb’s death in 1974 he named Johnson chairman and chief executive officer of the Del Webb Corporation at the age of 56.

    After a long successful career with the Webb Corporation, in 1981 Johnson retired from the corporate world and immediately took on the role as president of the Del E. Webb Foundation, a non-profit private foundation organized to promote charitable work, with emphasis, but not limited to the field of health and medical research. The Foundation was a result of Webb’s personal generosity. Johnson championed sizable grants with naming opportunities honoring Webb and benefiting residents of Arizona, California and Nevada. Respectful of the work done by the Foundation in the health care field and other areas, Johnson was personally proud of the Foundations’ support of the Del E. Webb School of Construction at Arizona State University and the Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts in Wickenburg. R.H. retired from the Foundation in November of 2007.

    Over his lifetime Johnson received many awards and accolades but was most humbled by the two honorary doctorate degrees bestowed upon him by Arizona State University in Tempe and Loma Linda University and Medical Center in California. Because he was so involved in the development, health care and economic vitality of the West Valley, he was also moved when honored by WESTMARC/SRP with a Best of the West Leadership Award and when named Man of the Year with the Henry Award from the Town of Wickenburg.

    R.H. Johnson enjoyed golf (12 handicap) and played for 26 years in the Bob Hope Desert Classic. In 1973 Johnson won the Classic with partner Arnold Palmer. He was an outstanding gardener and spent every spare moment working outside; everything he planted grew.

    Mr. Johnson was a quiet, generous man and he leaves behind his own legacy; The R. H. Johnson Foundation, a non-profit organization formed to support specific projects in the Wickenburg area; the place he came to call home.

    He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Lawrence, first wife Ellamae “Mazie” Douglas and daughter Susan Hauck. He is survived by wife Marjorie and son Lawrence.

    In lieu of flowers; the family requests that donation be made to Hospice of the Valley, the Wickenburg Community Hospital or the Del E. Webb Center for the Performing Arts. Arrangements entrusted to David’s Desert Chapel 928-684-0710.

    In builder Del Webb’s storied career, he was never more nervous than when he was general contractor for the construction of the Flamingo Hotel.

    Webb, who would become a casino and resort owner of note, confided to Flamingo “owner” Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel that he was worried about his well-being because so many sinister types were hanging around the not-yet-completed resort.

    Siegel, confessing to Webb that he had committed at least a dozen slayings during his lifelong criminal career, told the developer he had nothing to worry about.

    “We only kill each other,” Siegel, a self-admitted mobster, said.

    A few months later, Siegel, with two large caliber bullet wounds obliterating his handsome face, lay dead on the floor of the Beverly Hills mansion of his girlfriend Virginia Hill.

    Mary Lea Johnson Richards (August 20, 1926 – May 3, 1990) was an American heiress, entrepreneur, and Broadway producer. She was a granddaughter of Robert Wood Johnson I (co-founder of Johnson & Johnson), and of Bermudian politician, soldier, and lawyer, Colonel Thomas Melville Dill. She was the first baby to appear on a J&J baby powder label.

    Johnson was born in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Her father was John Seward Johnson I, and her mother was Ruth Dill, the sister of actress Diana Dill, therefore made her a first cousin of actor Michael Douglas. Johnson grew up with five siblings: Elaine Johnson, John Seward Johnson II, Diana Melville Johnson, Jennifer Underwood Johnson, and James Loring “Jimmy” Johnson. She was sexually abused by her father from age nine to fifteen.[1][2][4][5] Her parents divorced around 1937, and her father remarried two years later, producing two half siblings, including Jimmy Johnson, which made her an aunt of film director Jamie Johnson. Johnson graduated from the Masters School in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., and the New York Academy of Dramatic Arts.[6]

    [edit] CareerJohnson was a founder and partner of Producer Circle, a film and theater production company, which produced Broadway shows such as Sweeney Todd, and Broadway producer.[7]

    [edit] Personal lifeJohnson was excluded from her father’s will, which left the bulk of his fortune to Barbara Piasecka Johnson, her father’s wife and former chambermaid. She and her siblings sued on grounds that their father wasn’t mentally competent at the time he signed the will. It was settled out of court, and the children were granted about 12% of the fortune.[6] During the largest[8] inheritance battle in history, it was revealed that Johnson was a victim of incest.[1][2][4][5][9]

    Johnson’s first marriage was to William Ryan, a press agent turned farmer. Before they divorced, the pair had six children:[4] Eric Ryan, Seward Ryan, Hillary Ryan, Quentin Ryan, Roderick Newbold Ryan, and Alice Ryan Marriot.[6]

    In 1972, she married Dr. Victor D’Arc, a psychiatrist, whom she met while seeking treatment for her son’s drug addiction.[4] In 1976, she publicly declared that her estranged husband and his homosexual lover[9][10] had hired hitmen to have her murdered.[9][11] Johnson, who was living with gay[4] Broadway producer Marty Richards, hired a bodyguard, who was beaten almost to death during a break in that almost killed Johnson and Richards.[4] Subsequently, the Bronx D.A’s office made a case, and opened an investigation. No charges were brought, and the pair divorced in 1978.[6]

    Johnson’s third marriage would be to Richards, and last until her death. Her family had a twelve-year long court battle regarding her husband’s eligibility for a share of the Johnson & Johnson fortune. The court ruled in favor of Richards.[7]

    In 1990, Johnson died of liver cancer at the age of 63.[6][7] The NYU Mary Lea Johnson Richards Organ Transplantation Center is named after her.

      Paul Davis Ryan (born January 29, 1970) is the United States Representative for Wisconsin’s 1st congressional district and current chairman of the House Budget Committee. He was the Republican Party nominee for Vice President of the United States in the 2012 election.[1][2]

      He was born and raised in Janesville, Wisconsin, and is a graduate of Miami University in Ohio. He worked as an aide to legislators Bob Kasten, Sam Brownback, and Jack Kemp, and as a speechwriter before winning election to the U.S. House in 1998.

      Ryan has developed budget plans that propose privatizing Medicare for those currently under the age of 55,[3] funding Medicaid and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program through block grants to the states,[4][5][6] and other changes. Ryan introduced these proposals in his spending plan for the House Budget Committee in April 2011 and in an updated version in March 2012.[7]

      On August 11, 2012, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney announced that he had selected Ryan to be his vice-presidential running mate.[8] Ryan was officially nominated at the Republican convention in Tampa on August 29, 2012.[9] On November 6, 2012, Romney and Ryan were defeated in the general election by the incumbent Barack Obama and Joe Biden, although Ryan won reelection to his congressional seat.

      Charles Joseph Newbold DSO (12 January 1881 – 26 October 1946)[1] was an English rugby union international who played club rugby for Cambridge University and Blackheath. He played six international games for England between 1904 and 1905. During the First World War he served the British Army in the Royal Engineers.

      [edit] Early lifeNewbold was born in 1881 in Tunbridge Wells, England. He was the second son of William Newbold of East Grinstead, and was educated at Rose Hill in Tunbridge Wells and then Uppingham School. He entered Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge in 1900 and was awarded his BA in 1903.[2] On leaving Cambridge in 1904 he joined brewing firm Guinness, becoming one of their early chemists at the Guinness Research Laboratory.[3]

      [edit] Rugby careerNewbold first came to note as a rugby player when he represented Cambridge University and won two sporting Blues, in 1902 and 1903. He won his first international cap while still a Cambridge player, representing England in the 1904 Home Nations Championship. He played in all three games of the 1904 campaign and was reselected for the 1905 Championship. After leaving university he joined Blackheath, and became a member of the invitational tourists, The Barbarians in 1903.

      [edit] Military career and later lifeAfter the outbreak of World War I, Newbold joined the Royal Engineers and reached the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He was mentioned in dispatches on three occasions and was awarded the Distinguished Service Order. On 27 September 1924, he married Daphne Gertrude Persse,[4] who served with the British Red Cross Society in both the First and Second World War.[5]

      In 1941 Newold became the Managing Director of Guinness; and from 1942-1945 he was the Chairman of the Brewers’ Society.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Countee_Cullen
    Countee Cullen was possibly born on May 30,[1] although due to conflicting accounts of his early life, a general application of the year of his birth as 1903 is reasonable.[2] He was either born in New York,[3] Baltimore, or Lexington, Kentucky, with his widow being convinced he was born in Lexington.[2] Cullen was possibly abandoned by his mother, and reared by a woman named Mrs. Porter, who was probably his paternal grandmother.[4] Porter brought young Countee to Harlem when he was nine.[4] She died in 1918.[4] No known reliable information exists of his childhood until 1918 when he was taken in, or adopted, by Reverend and Mrs Frederick A. Cullen of Harlem, New York City.[5] The Reverend was the local minister, and founder, of the Salem Methodist Episcopal Church.[6]

    [edit] DeWitt Clinton High SchoolAt some point, Cullen entered the DeWitt Clinton High School in Manhattan.[7] He excelled academically at the school while emphasizing his skills at poetry and in oratorical contest.[8] At DeWitt, he was elected into the honor society, editor of the weekly newspaper, and elected vice-president of his graduating class.[7] In January 1922, he graduated with honors in Latin, Greek, Mathematics, and French.[9]

    [edit] New York University and Harvard UniversityYet Do I Marvel
    I doubt not God is good, well-meaning, kind,
    And did He stoop to quibble could tell why
    The little buried mole continues blind,
    Why flesh that mirrors Him must someday die,
    Make plain the reason tortured Tantalus
    Is baited by the fickle fruit, declare
    If merely brute caprice dooms Sisyphus
    To struggle up a never-ending stair.
    Inscrutable His ways are, and immune
    To catechism by a mind too strewn
    With petty cares to slightly understand
    What awful brains compels His awful hand.
    Yet do I marvel at this curious thing:
    To make a poet black, and bid him sing!
    After graduating high school, he entered New York University (NYU).[10] In 1923, he won second prize in the Witter Bynner undergraduate poetry contest, which was sponsored by the Poetry Society of America, with a poem entitled The Ballad of the Brown Girl.[11] At about this time, some of his poetry was promulgated in the national periodicals Harper’s, Crisis, Opportunity, The Bookman, and Poetry. The ensuing year he again placed second in the contest and finally winning it in 1925. Cullen competed in a poetry contest sponsored by Opportunity. and came in second with To One Who Say Me Nay, while losing to Langston Hughes’s The Weary Blues. Sometime thereafter, Cullen graduated from NYU as one of eleven students selected to Phi Beta Kappa.[12]

    Cullen entered Harvard in 1925, to pursue a masters in English, about the same time his first collection of poems, Color, was published.[12] Written in a careful, traditional style, the work celebrated black beauty and deplored the effects of racism. The book included “Heritage” and “Incident”, probably his most famous poems. “Yet Do I Marvel”, about racial identity and injustice, showed the influence of the literary expression of William Wordsworth and William Blake, but its subject was far from the world of their Romantic sonnets. The poet accepts that there is God, and “God is good, well-meaning, kind”, but he finds a contradiction of his own plight in a racist society: he is black and a poet. Cullen’s Color was a landmark of the Harlem Renaissance.[citation needed] He graduated with a masters degree in 1926.

    The movement was centered in the cosmopolitan community of Harlem, in New York City. During the 1920s, a fresh generation of writers emerged, although a few were Harlem-born. Other leading figures included Alain Locke (The New Negro, 1925), James Weldon Johnson (Black Manhattan, 1930), Claude McKay (Home to Harlem, 1928), Hughes (The Weary Blues, 1926), Zora Neale Hurston (Jonah’s Gourd Vine, 1934), Wallace Thurman (Harlem: A Melodrama of Negro Life, 1929), Jean Toomer (Cane, 1923) and Arna Bontemps (Black Thunder, 1935). The movement was accelerated by grants and scholarships and supported by such white writers as Carl Van Vechten.

    He worked as assistant editor for Opportunity magazine, where his column, “The Dark Tower”, increased his literary reputation. Cullen’s poetry collections The Ballad of the Brown Girl (1927) and Copper Sun (1927) explored similar themes as Color, but they were not so well received. Cullen’s Guggenheim Fellowship of 1928 enabled him to study and write abroad. He met Nina Yolande Du Bois, daughter of W. E. B. Du Bois, the leading black intellectual. At that time Yolande was involved romantically with a popular band leader. Between the years 1928 and 1934, Cullen traveled back and forth between France and the United States.

    When Cullen married Yolande Du Bois in April 1928, it was the social event of the decade, but the marriage did not fare well, and he divorced in 1930. It is rumored that Cullen was a homosexual,[14] and his relationship with Harold Jackman (“the handsomest man in Harlem), was a significant factor in the divorce. The young, dashing Jackman was a school teacher and, thanks to his noted beauty, a prominent figure among Harlem’s gay elite. Van Vechten had used him as a character model in his novel Nigger Heaven (1926).

    It’s very possible that the conflicted Cullen was in love with the homosexual Jackman, but Thomas Wirth, author of Gay Rebel of the Harlem Renaissance, Selections from the Work of Richard Bruce Nugent, says there is no concrete proof that they ever were lovers, despite newspaper stories and gossip suggesting the contrary.

    Paine was born in New York, New York. His father was Lyman Paine, an architect and activist. His mother was Ruth Forbes Paine Young, financial backer of International Peace Academy and daughter of Elise Cabot Forbes. He had one sibling: Cameron Paine.[1]

    wiki above:
    Paine graduated from high school in New York in 1947. He attended Harvard University for two years and Swarthmore College for a year, but did not graduate.[1]

    [edit] CareerAfter working in the U.S. Army, Paine worked a few months for Griswold Manufacturing Co. After that, Paine worked at Bartol Research Foundation in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania for about a year. He then worked for his mother’s second husband Arthur M. Young, making helicopter models in Pennsylvania.[1]

    In 1958, Paine became employed at Bell Helicopter[1] through Young, his stepfather and designer of the first commercial helicopter, Bell 47.

    [edit] Personal lifeIn 1957, he married Ruth Avery Hyde in Pennsylvania. They had two children:[1] Lynn (b. 1959) and Christopher (b. 1961).[2] In 1959, they relocated to Irving, Texas[2] when Paine began work at a Bell Helicopter facility in Fort Worth.

    In February 1963, Paine’s wife was introduced to Marina Oswald and her husband, Lee Harvey Oswald by a family friend from the singing group, Everett Glover, at a party Paine didn’t attend because of a cold. Paine met the Oswalds for the first time in April when his wife invited them over for dinner. In late September 1963, when Paine and his wife were separated, and he had his own apartment in Grand Prairie, Texas, and would visit the family home on weekends, Marina and her daughter went to live with Paine’s wife. Lee Harvey Oswald rented a room in Dallas but stored some of his possessions in Paine’s garage, including a supposed rifle wrapped in a blanket which Paine thought to be camping equipment.[1] Paine’s wife helped Oswald get a job at the Texas School Book Depository. Paine’s testimony would later become a central feature of the Warren Commission’s investigation of the assassination, particularly in regard to the presence of the purported assassination rifle in the garage of his family home.

    http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/JFKpaine.htm
    The sources he does cite, moreover, are far from reassuring. His Acknowledgements, for example, lists six persons, including Mrs. Paine and her former husband, Michael, Priscilla Johnson McMillan and John McAdams. McAdams has gained a certain degree of notoriety for his one-sided defense of the “lone nut” hypothesis, which disregards overwhelming contradictory evidence, including proof that the “magic bullet” theory is not only false but anatomically impossible.

    Priscilla Johnson McMillan, however, is the most intriguing name on this list. It was she who “interviewed” Oswald on the occasion of his pseudo-defection to the Soviet Union; it was she who was selected by the United States government to accompany Stalin’s daughter, Sevetlana, when she defected to the United States; and it was she who was chosen to “baby sit” Marina during those turbulent times in the aftermath of the assassination. Her CIA connections virtually qualify as “common knowledge”…

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruth_Paine
    Ruth Hyde Paine (born September 3, 1932) was a friend of Marina Oswald, who was living with her at the time of the JFK assassination. Lee Harvey Oswald stored the 6.5 mm caliber Carcano rifle he allegedly used to assassinate US President John F. Kennedy in her garage, unbeknownst to her and her husband, Michael Paine.

    Paine was born Ruth Avery Hyde. She went to Antioch College and became a Quaker. Through her interest in folk dancing and music she met her future husband Michael Paine. Though strictly speaking not a Quaker, Michael attended meetings with Ruth. They married on December 28, 1957.

    In 1959 Michael Paine got a job with Bell Helicopter in Fort Worth, Texas and the Paines moved into a house in the suburb of Irving. As liberals in Dallas the Paines were isolated and Ruth Paine was quite lonely.

    Ruth Paine had been studying Russian since 1957. In the late 1950s she participated in Quaker pen pal programs and the East-West Contact Committee, which sponsored visits by three Soviets to the US. In 1963 she signed up to teach a summer class in Russian at St. Mark’s School in Dallas, but only one student signed up (William Hootkins, who became an actor and had a minor role in the movie Star Wars as X-Wing pilot Jek Porkins).

    She met the Oswalds through her interest in Russian. A friend from a singing group, Everett Glover, invited her to a party on February 22, 1963 because he thought she would be interested in meeting people who spoke Russian. The Paines and Oswalds spent much time together after the party. Ruth befriended Marina though Lee was more distant, despite Ruth and Michael’s efforts (and the Paines did not care for him much).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lyman_Paine
    George Lyman Paine, Jr. (November 16, 1901 – July 1, 1978), known as Lyman Paine, was an architect and radical left activist. He is known for his work with the Correspondence Publishing Committee with his wife Freddy Paine, and was closely associated with Grace Lee Boggs.

    Paine was born in New York City in 1901. His father George Lyman Paine, Sr. was an Episcopal priest and a Christian Socialist, the son of philanthropist Robert Treat Paine. After graduating from Harvard University in 1922, G. Lyman Jr. became an architect. He married Ruth Forbes of the distinguished Forbes family in 1926. They were divorced in 1934.

    In the mid-1930s, Lyman became active in Marxist politics. While working for the New York City Housing Authority, Lyman met Frances “Freddy” Drake (1912-1999), whom he married in 1939. Lyman and Freddy Paine were early members of the Johnson-Forest Tendency, a group within the Trotskyist Socialist Workers Party which included Grace Lee Boggs and her husband James Boggs. The Johnson-Forest group split from the main current of the Trotskyist left at the beginning of the 1950s, setting up the Correspondence Publishing Committee which produced the newspaper Correspondence. When Johnson-Forest founder C. L. R. James left the group in 1962, the Paines remained with the Committee and the Boggses.

    By his first wife, Lyman Paine was the father of two sons, Cameron and Michael. Michael’s wife Ruth Paine befriended the wife of Lee Harvey Oswald, and both Michael and Ruth testified before the Warren Commission after the assassination of President Kennedy.

    Lyman Paine died in 1978 and Freddy Paine in 1999. Both are buried on Sutton Island, Maine where they had summered for many years.

    William T. Sedgwick was born on December 29, 1855 in West Hartford, CT. He was the son of William Sedgwick and Anne Thompson Sedgwick. In 1877, he received his undergraduate degree from the Sheffield Scientific School at Yale University. He studied for two years at the Yale School of Medicine where he was also an instructor in physiological chemistry (1978-9).[1] He left Yale to take up studies at Johns Hopkins University in physiology. He became interested in biology and changed his course of study graduating with a PhD in biology in 1881. He remained at Hopkins for two years as an associate in biology.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Lyman_Underwood
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Underwood_Company
    The company was established by its founder William Underwood (1787–1864) in 1822 in Boston, Massachusetts,[1] as a condiment company using glass packing techniques. Among the condiments and other items glass packed were mustard, ketchup of various kinds, many types of pickled vegetables, and cranberries,[1] primarily focusing on mustards and pickling.[2] By 1836, Underwood shifted his packing from glass to steel cans coated with tin on the inside because glassmakers in the Boston area could not keep up with product demands from the canning company.[1]

    Underwood’s canned foods proved valuable to settlers during the Manifest Destiny period of 1840–60.[1] Additionally, Underwood sold numerous canned foods to Union troops during the American Civil War of 1861–65.[1] The amount of products canned increased to include seafood products like lobster, oyster, and mackerel.[1] William Underwood died in 1864,[1] the same year that William Lyman Underwood, one of his three grandsons, was born. Underwood’s son, William James Underwood, would head the business as new retort technology continued to be developed for use.

    [edit] Involvement with MITFrom its beginning, the company encountered the problem of cans swelling,[3] causing a great deal of product loss. In late 1895, William Lyman Underwood, a grandson of the founder, asked MIT for assistance with this problem.[4][5]

    Underwood approached William Thompson Sedgwick, the chair of the Biology department at MIT about the concerns he had with product swells and explosion of cans of clams.[4] Sedgwick conferred with his assistant, Samuel Cate Prescott,[4] and from late 1895 to late 1896, Prescott and Underwood worked on the problem every afternoon, focusing on canned clams.[6] They discovered that the clams contained heat-resistant bacterial spores that were able to survive the processing; then they learned that these spores’ presence depended on the clams’ living environment, and finally that these spores would be killed if processed at 250°F (121°C) for 10 minutes in a retort.[7]

    These studies prompted the similar research of canned lobster, sardines, peas, tomatoes, corn, and spinach.[8] Prescott and Underwood’s work was first published in late 1897.[8] This research, which was never patented,[9] proved beneficial to the William Underwood Company, the canning industry, the food industry, and food technology itself.[10][11]

    In the mid 1950s, outgoing company president W. Durant brought new president George Seybolt to MIT to meet Prescott.[12] At the Institute of Food Technologists Northeast Section (Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont) meeting at Watertown, Massachusetts, in April 1961, the William Underwood Company dedicated a new laboratory in honor of both Prescott and William Lyman Underwood.[13] Following Prescott’s death in 1962, the William Underwood Company created the Underwood Prescott Memorial Lectureship in memory of both Underwood and Prescott.[14] This Lectureship would run until 1982. In 1969, Seybolt donated USD 600,000 to MIT to create the Underwood Professorship,[14] followed up with an Underwood Prescott Professorship in 1972.[15] Three MIT faculty have held this professorship since its inception: Samuel A. Goldblith,[15] Gerald N. Wogan,[15] and since 1996, Steven R. Tannenbaum.[16][17]

    [edit] Acquisitions and sale[edit] Expansion in 1960sUnderwood acquired the Burnham & Morrill (B&M) Company of Portland, Maine, in 1965.[18] B&M had actually purchased canned clams and tomatoes from Underwood in the late 1860s for resale before producing these products on its own. Baked beans were the best known product that B&M started producing, which it started doing in the 1920s with its Brick Oven Baked Beans.[18] Piermont Foods, a food company in Montreal, Canada, was acquired in 1968[18] in order for Underwood to sell its products north of the border.

    [edit] Sale of Underwood to PETUnderwood, which up to this point had been privately owned by the Underwood family, was sold to PET in 1982,[19] and B&M’s Westwood, Massachusetts, facility was closed. Included in this was B&M Foods as part of the sale. Thirteen years later, the Pillsbury Company acquired PET Inc.[19] and began a modernization process that included warehousing, production, and processing. B&G Foods of New York, New York, acquired the Underwood foods, including Underwood’s canned meat line, sardines, B&M, and Accent,[20] in 1999.

Her father was John Seward Johnson I, and her mother was Ruth Dill, the sister of actress Diana Dill, therefore made her a first cousin of actor Michael Douglas. Johnson grew up with five siblings: Elaine Johnson, John Seward Johnson II, Diana Melville Johnson, Jennifer Underwood Johnson, and James Loring “Jimmy” Johnson. She was sexually abused by her father from age nine to fifteen.[1][2][4][5] Her parents divorced around 1937, and her father remarried two years later, producing two half siblings, including Jimmy Johnson, which made her an aunt of film director Jamie Johnson.

    Well-known Trinidad sex-reassignment doctor leaves
    Everybody knew somebody in the diner. And they were well aware that the town’s marquee personality, gender-reassignment surgeon Dr. Marci Bowers, had left for good.

    “And everybody has an opinion about it,” said Hot Spot owner Diana Velarde.

    “I think it’s too bad,” said Mike Gerardo, one of Velarde’s customers, who sat in overalls polishing off a plate of spaghetti. A former coal miner, Gerardo knows about the impact

    of a business shutting down.

    “She brought a lot of money into the community,” Gerardo said.

    Bowers is known the world over for turning men into women (and occasionally the other way around). She didn’t make Trinidad, Colo., the sex-change capital of the world; she merely made it world famous as that.

    But this fall, after months of fighting with the hospital that was the home base for her practice, she packed up her instruments and headed to the San Francisco area, ending an era that helped define Trinidad for decades.

    It may not be the greatest cataclysm the town of about 10,000 has weathered. Mines have closed. Railroad hubs have moved.

    But regardless of its eventual place in Trinidad history, Bowers’ departure reverberates now, in ways big and small, throughout this rugged town in the Purgatoire River valley.

    Gender-reassignment patients didn’t fly in and out overnight. Their procedures kept them in town for days, if not weeks.

    That’s why restaurants, hotels and gift shops will all be hurt, said Karin Murray, co-owner of Hometown Pharmacy & Medical on Main Street.

    Murray’s business has been hit too.

    A.T. Kearney’s top competitors include white shoe firms McKinsey & Company, Bain & Company, the Boston Consulting Group, Booz & Company, L.E.K. Consulting, and Roland Berger Strategy Consultants.

    [edit] History[edit] 1926–1987McKinsey & Company was created in 1926 when James O. McKinsey left his academic career as a professor of accounting at the University of Chicago. Andrew Thomas Kearney joined the firm three years after it was founded. Tom Kearney was McKinsey’s first partner and head of its first office in Chicago. At the time, McKinsey & Company was one of the only firms that focused on management consulting for top level executives rather than specialized consulting in areas such as accounting or law.

    In 1937 James O. McKinsey died unexpectedly at the age of 48 due to pneumonia. While the company continued to operate as before, Tom Kearney and the remaining partners disagreed over how to run the firm. In 1939 the company split; A.T. Kearney continued to operate the original Chicago office, renaming the firm McKinsey and Kearney. Marvin Bower, the head of the New York office, continued the practice in New York and retained the rights to the name McKinsey & Company in all areas other than the Midwest. In 1947 Bower purchased the exclusive rights to the name McKinsey & Company from Tom Kearney, who renamed his firm A.T. Kearney & Associates.

Laudicina, A.T. Kearney’s current managing partner and chairman of the board, launched the Council and served as its first director. Today, the Council is led by Erik R. Peterson, who came to A.T. Kearney in 2010 from the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), where he served as senior vice president and held the CSIS William A. Schreyer Chair in Global Analysis. The core GBPC team is based in Washington, D.C. and draws on the expertise of a wide range of international experts.

    The GBPC offers business and government leaders three key services:

    Meetings that attract expertise and insight: As profiled in Forbes magazine,[10] the annual GBPC CEO Retreat convenes 55 leading executives and policy figures to discuss key global issues, best practices, and strategy
    Intellectual capital that helps leaders calibrate and plan for the future
    Global Services Location Index: analyzes and ranks the top 50 countries worldwide as the best destinations for providing outsourcing activities, including IT services and support, contact centers and back-office support[11]
    Foreign Direct Investment Confidence Index: demonstrates the “present and future prospects for international investment flows” via a survey of global executives, whose companies account for over $2 trillion in annual global revenue[12]
    Customized strategic advisory services, including scenario planning, location assessment, investment promotion, and global foresight

    Paul Robeson was born in Princeton in 1898, to Reverend William Drew Robeson and Maria Louisa Bustill.[2] His mother was from a prominent Quaker family of mixed ancestry: African, Anglo-American, and Lenape.[3] His father, William, escaped from a plantation in his teens[4] and eventually became the minister of Princeton’s Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church in 1881.[5] Robeson had three brothers, William Drew, Jr. (born 1881), Reeve (born c. 1887), and Ben (born c. 1893), and one sister, Marian (born c. 1895).[6]

    In 1900, a disagreement between William and white financial supporters of Witherspoon arose with apparent racial undertones,[7] which were prevalent in Princeton.[8] William, who had the support of his entirely black congregation, resigned in 1901.[9] The loss of his position forced him to work menial jobs.[10] Three years later when Robeson was six, his mother, who was nearly blind, tragically died in a house fire.[11] Eventually, William became financially incapable of providing a house for himself and his children still living at home, Ben and Robeson, so they moved into the attic of a store in Westfield, New Jersey.

    Early years and marriageEslanda Cardozo Goode was born in Washington, DC in 1896, mostly descended from Black slaves. Her paternal great-grandfather was a Sephardic Jew whose family was expelled from Spain in the 17th century.[1] Her grandfather was Francis Lewis Cardozo, the first Black treasurer of South Carolina. Her father, John Goode, was a law clerk in the War Department who later finished his law degree at Howard University. Eslanda had two older brothers, John Jr. and Francis. She attended the University of Illinois and later graduated from Columbia University in New York with a B. S. degree in chemistry. When then she started to work at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, she soon became the head histological chemist of Surgical Pathology, the first Black to hold such a position.[1] In 1920, Paul Robeson and Eslanda attended summer school at Columbia. One year later they married. Eslanda gave up her intentions to study medicine and supported her husband as his business manager. Eslanda worked at the hospital until 1925, when the career of her husband took more and more of her time. She spent time between Harlem, London and France in the following years.

    The only child of the Robesons, Paul Jr, “Pauli” was born on November 2, 1927; Robeson was on a tour in Europe at that time. The marriage was strained and Eslanda suffered under the affairs of her husband that reportedly started with a relationship with Freda Diamond[2] in 1925.[3] Other affairs affecting their relationship were those with actresses Fredi Washington[2] and Peggy Ashcroft[4] Robeson’s long-term liaison with Yolanda Jackson almost broke up the marriage, and Eslanda even agreed to a divorce at a time.[5] Yet despite all the setbacks and separations, the marriage endured, as each of the two had needs that only the other could fill. Eslanda chose to “rise above Paul’s affairs”, but to stay married to him and pursue her own career.[6]

    In 1930 Eslanda published her first book, a first biography of her husband: Paul Robeson, Negro. Robeson himself, who had provided no direct input, was “deeply angered” by it.[7] He resented that she put words into his mouth and depicted him as lazy, immature, and needy of her guidance.[8] In the book, Robeson complains, “she treats me just as a … small child”, to which she replies “..perhaps when you grow up I’ll treat you as a man.”[9] She also addresses the issue of his infidelity, which he neither confirms or denies; she assures him that she feels that they have such a deep level of love, that past events could not affect it, “No matter what other women have done to you, or you to them, they have in no way walked in my garden.”[10] Harry Hanson, a New York critic, gave the book a positive review and called it inspiring, and that it was written with “rich understanding” and “deep pride”.[11] He recommended that the book should be read by white America. W. E. B. Du Bois placed it in the ‘must read’ category in The Crisis, the NAACP magazine.[12] Other views, however, were negative. Stark Young in the New Republic called it “biographical rubbish”.[13]

    [edit] AnthropologistIn 1931, the couple were living in London and became more estranged. Eslanda resumed her own career, taking acting parts in three movies over the next couple of years. She enrolled at the London School of Economics for anthropology and graduated in 1937. In England, she learned more about Africa. She made the first of three journeys to the continent, touring South and East Africa with her son in 1936. With the signs of war imminent in Europe, the Robesons moved back to Harlem in 1938. Three years later, they moved to Enfield, Connecticut, to their estate, “The Beeches”. Eslanda earned her Ph.D. at the Hartford Seminary in 1946. Using her diary notes of her Africa trip, she completed her second book African Journey the same year. The book was unusual, as few books in those days dealt with Africa in the first place, and her perspective, as an African American woman, on women in black Africa was unique. The book’s publication was endorsed by Pearl Buck, whose husband was the head of the John Day publishing house. The book argued that Blacks should take pride in their African heritage. Both white and black reviews were favorable. Buck and Eslanda continued to work together. As a result, American Argument was published in 1949, a book of dialogues and comments, edited by Buck, that lets Eslanda speak on society, politics, gender role, and race relations. While the book contained a critique of cold war politics, its reception, in general, was positive, but it was a financial flop.

    [edit] During the Cold WarWith the development of the cold war, the life of the Robesons changed dramatically. The couple had first visited the Soviet Union in 1934, were impressed by the apparent absence of racism, and agreed with the stance of communism against racism, colonization, and imperialism. While aware of the Great Purge by or before 1938, they accepted this (as Robeson explained to his son, ” (S)ometimes… great injustices may be inflicted on the minority when the majority is in a pursuit of a great and just course”[14]) and did not speak out against it.[15] By 1938, however, they helped Eslanda’s brother Francis escape. Her brother John had already departed the previous year, and Paul Jr. did not continue with his education at a Moscow “model school”.[14] With their pro-Soviet views, both became targets during the McCarthy days. Robeson’s career came to a standstill, their income dropped dramatically, and the Connecticut estate had to be sold. On July 17, 1953 Eslanda, like her husband, was called to testify before the US Senate. Asked if she was a communist, she took the Fifth Amendment and challenged the legitimacy of the proceedings. Her passport was revoked, until the decision was overturned in 1958. Fighting for the decolonization of Africa and Asia she continued to work for the Council on African Affairs and to write as the UN correspondent for the New World Review, a pro-Soviet magazine.[15]

    Once their passports had been returned to the Robesons, they flew to London and the Soviet Union. Eslanda made her third and final trip to Africa, attending the first postcolonial All-African Peoples’ Conference in Ghana in 1958. In 1963 she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She returned from Russia to the US and died in New York in 1965.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Nicole_Smith
    Vickie Lynn Marshall (née Hogan; November 28, 1967 – February 8, 2007), known by her moniker Anna Nicole Smith, was an American model, actress and television personality. Smith first gained popularity in Playboy, becoming the 1993 Playmate of the Year. She modeled for clothing companies, including Guess jeans and Lane Bryant.

    Smith dropped out of high school and was married in 1985. Her highly publicized second marriage to oil business mogul J. Howard Marshall, 62 years her senior, resulted in speculation that she married the octogenarian for his money, which she denied. Following Marshall’s death, Smith began a lengthy legal battle over a share of his estate; her case, Marshall v. Marshall, reached the U.S. Supreme Court on a question of federal jurisdiction and again on a question of bankruptcy court authority (now called Stern v. Marshall). Smith died on February 8, 2007 in a Hollywood, Florida hotel room as a result of an overdose of prescription drugs. Within the final six months of her life, Smith was the focus of a renewed press coverage surrounding the death of her son, Daniel, and the paternity and custody battle over her newborn daughter, Dannielynn.
