Ferry and Elwood Evans, the historian of the area. Evans, Bancroft says, "devoted the whole of two days to me, drew forth from many a nook and corner the musty records of the past, and placed the whole of his material at my disposal. To call such a one generous is faint praise. With Matilda and Bowman, he talked with political figures of the present and recent past, living pioneers like the daughter of Dr. John McLoughlin, who afterward gave him McLoughlin papers which are one of the ornaments of the Library's Oregon manuscripts, and various men of affairs.
Among many other comments, Bancroft says: On my return I immediately sought him out, and had before his death, which shortly followed, many long and profitable interviews with him. Frances Fuller Victor, whose writings on Oregon had greatly impressed him, was absent at the time on the southern coast, gathering information for a revision of her Oregon and Washington.
After he returned home, Bancroft wrote offering her a job in his library; she accepted, and for years "proved one of my most faithful and efficient assistants. Quinn Thornton, with his long grizzly hair and oily tongue. Nesmith, and Medorem Crawford.

Lovejoy, and John M. Bacon; and he signalizes among his Portland acquisitions "the remarkable dictations given me by Judge Deady and Judge Strong, each of which, with the authors' writings already in print, constitutes a history of Oregon in itself.
One whole day Bancroft spent at Drain with Jesse Applegate; at Roseburg he worked patiently with Joseph Lane; and at Jacksonville he labored through an entire night, taking down in his own handwriting what he ruefully calls "a most disgusting dictation from the old Indian-butcher John E. Bancroft mentions a meeting at Ashland with O.
Applegate, whose extensive personal papers came to the Library for microfilming over eighty years later, long after the two men had gone on to their reward. Petrov then went on to Fort Wrangel, Sitka, and other Alaska ports, all the while assiduously gathering information.
He kept a conscientious journal of the trip, preserved among Bancroft's Alaska manuscripts and summarized at length in Literary Industries. As in the case of Bancroft's own harvest that summer, not all the historical materials mentioned have survived among the Bancroft manuscript collections; nor does anyone on the premises today have any idea what happened to the mummy Petrov brought back and installed in a glass case, which for many years startled visitors to H.
Petrov returned to San Francisco on October 27,and thereafter, for several years, he actively pressed the work on Bancroft's history of Alaska. His translations from Russian books and manuscripts were particularly helpful, to H. Bancroft as to later scholars. Having broken ground in the Pacific Northwest and started a substantial flow of informative letters, reminiscences, and documents from that quarter, H.
Bancroft turned his attention to the problem presented by Utah and the Mormons. He had enjoyed cordial relations with the Mormon church officials in the course of publishing his statistical works of the past, but writing a history of Utah would touch the Saints at a much more sensitive point. Accordingly, Bancroft proceeded with great circumspection.
Richards, was detailed to the work. With his wife, Richards journeyed to San Francisco and spent two weeks there, most of the time as guest of the Bancrofts. Both he and Mrs.
Richards gave extended dictations, and thus began the inflow of such personal documents from Utah. After Richards returned home, he and the Church exerted themselves in Bancroft's interest, and some of the results are seen in the many manuscripts described in this Guide, dated between and By Bancroft was feeling the pressure from his gigantic volume publishing project, now advancing on many fronts.
Between and he republished the five volumes of his Native Races, and also got out his three-volume history of Central America, the first three of his five-volume history of Mexico, both volumes of his history of the Northwest Coast, the first of his seven-volume history of California, and the first of his two-volume history of the North Mexican States and Texas. Sales forces were being mustered throughout the West to market these books and the works in progress.
Yet there were still great holes in his research, particularly for the Rocky Mountain States and Territories. Illness in his family impelled Bancroft to undertake in Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, and New Mexico what he had done six years before in the Pacific Northwest.
His son Philip was not physically robust, and when in the summer of the boy developed a disturbing cough, Bancroft departed for dryer climes, taking along his entire family, including Kate, his daughter by his first marriage, who had previously shared in some of his field labors in California.
For six weeks in August and September the Bancrofts remained in Salt Lake City, taking dictations from principal Mormons and non-Mormons—a work in which Matilda and Kate joined with Bancroft and such stenographers as he hired on the spot. Beatie, John Reese, and William Jennings. The dictations obtained from these men added importantly to the scant handful of Nevada dictations Bancroft had acquired sincemostly through the agency of George Morrison, one of his right-hand men in the Library.
The time of Bancroft's stay in Salt Lake City was a critical one for the Mormon church, the anti-polygamy crusade rising toward its high tide, and the feeling between Mormons and anti-Mormons correspondingly embittered.
All this was of small consequence, however, beside the accomplishment of our mission, which was fully done in every particular. By supplying myself pretty freely with help in the form of stenographers and statisticians, I secured the experiences of several hundred of those who had had the most to do in making the early history of this region.
Among the manuscripts thus resulting was one which must ever constitute [one of] the corner-stones of Colorado history.
Nearly two months were occupied in writing it, and the work on it was done in this way: Taking a full file of the Rocky Mountain News, the first journal published in the country and still running, I sat down before it with a stenographer and its first editor [William N. Byers], who, while I questioned and commented, told the history of the state, turning over the leaves of the newspaper to refresh his memory, and give him the desired information.
Bancroft recorded his full share. Leaving his family pleasantly situated in Denver, Bancroft traveled up to Cheyenne and spent two profitable weeks there, going through newspaper files and "writing out the experiences of the prominent men.
Corlett, and various others. Cordial aid was also given by residents of Laramie and Lander, and by the commanding officers of the military posts of the Territory, though it does not appear that he extended his travels beyond Cheyenne.Biografia William Edwards Deming
Some of the winter of Bancroft and his family spent in New Mexico. He says that he "had interviews with most of the leading men, and obtained a large mass of material which was an absolute necessity to my work. So far Bancroft's Literary Industries gives a general picture of his labors with regard to the Pacific and Western States and Territories. It would appear that he intended to visit Arizona in the interests of his History, but never managed to do so, and though he crossed and recrossed Nevada by train, he seems never to have felt any personal necessity to search out Nevada materials.
One reason may be that Arizona and Nevada in the 's and 's were financial and cultural appendages of California, and many of the prominent men of both Territories were being interviewed as Californians; typical is the dictation by the one-time Arizona governor A. Safford, which is filed among Bancroft's California Manuscripts. Also neglected were Idaho and Montana in one direction, and Texas in the other. Bancroft tells of his indebtedness to Granville Stuart in Montana, saying that "through him, and by various other means, I was enabled to secure from that quarter, including Idaho, sufficient for my purpose," but he clearly had reference to printed materials, supplied in Nothing about Bancroft's Montana and Idaho manuscripts suggests that Stuart had anything to do with them, and the earlier dictations relating to these Territories give the impression that they were recorded in California, or through some casual circumstance, not as a result of any well-conceived and vigorously executed collecting program.
One signal event of the later 's must be noted, apart from Bancroft's personal labors in the Rocky Mountain region, and that is his acquisition of the remarkable collections made by the French savant, Alphonse L. Pinart was a linguist of almost boundless capabilities, who could write with equal facility in French, German, Russian, English, Spanish, and Latin, and characteristically did so in his diaries and notes.
Pinart is understood to have been born in France in If so, he must have been precocious, for Bancroft says he was in California as early asalready an accomplished scholar. In February,he was in St. Petersburg, searching the archives for material on Russian America, and at this time wrote Bancroft offering to place at his disposal whatever information he turned up.
Of such books and manuscripts as he had in duplicate, I took one; the rest were copied in full in a translation made for me by Mr Ivan Petroff. Through all his travels Pinart kept a sharp eye open for historical materials. Some documents he copied; others he purchased or was given, and these are among the finest manuscripts in the Bancroft collections. Outstanding in this volume of the Guide are Pinart's manuscripts of the Texas revolutionary period, and those he salvaged in New Mexico after a governmental blunder scattered the old Spanish archives of that Territory in Pinart's linguistic collections are important, too, and in modern times have attracted scholarly attention.
The next phase of the Bancroft manuscript collecting program is passed by virtually unnoticed in Literary Industries, though it greatly swelled the total bulk of the "Bancroft dictations. Admittedly the dictations these men gathered do not begin to compare with the elaborate narratives taken down in California, or those resulting from the travels of the Bancrofts in the Pacific Northwest and the Rocky Mountains.

The book agents were primarily hired to sell subscriptions to the Bancroft Works, but it was part of their modus operandi to write biographical sketches of prospective subscribers. Whether or not a man placed an order, his dictation was mailed to the business office.
It was then handed over to the Library, a title applied and a permanent number given preliminary to shelving the manuscript. Most of these dictations did not come to hand until the various volumes of the Works were substantially complete, and little use is made of them—mainly as condensed biographies belatedly attached to footnotes. The difficulty of using these sketches, which usually consist only of a page or two or three, has been such that most scholars, down to the present day, have shied away from them.
One of the particular labors attendant on the preparation of this Guide has been the classification of most of these dictations by geographic area, usually by city or county of residence, which should render them more usable.
A large proportion of the men who gave the dictations have escaped notice in the standard biographical works published for the various Western States, which makes the manuscripts that much more valuable.
Many of the book agents were men with a real interest in history, and a consciousness of historical forces. They were alive to the opportunities that might offer for the gathering up of documentary materials. For example, it was doubtless through the spadework of one of the agents that the Kit Carson Papers came to H. Boggs, the administrator of Carson's estate.
In some areas, moreover, virtually all of the gathering up of historical data in manuscript was the work of these agents; Texas is peculiarly a case in point. The band is fortunate to have three members who can all sing well and Sean, Howard and Paul share out the vocals fairly evenly.
There are four originals interspersed between covers from both classic and contemporary artists, the accent being on swinging material, hence the album title. Three contemporary artists who all died far too young are celebrated by the band: A shame that they could not get him on to more tracks as his sax work definitely adds to the overall sound. That leaves three other originals to discuss. Overall a very enjoyable album which pays tribute to influences past and present.
As the originals stand up well against the covers it would be good to see the band increase the proportion of their own material next time around.
He gets over to the States as often as he can to see live blues. Blues Hall of Fame. This latest release is a compilation of the various outfits and musical personas he adopts.

E D can rip it with the best of them. Adrienne, Andrea and Vanessa Brown Dukes who sing like the heavens are their private domain. The tone is perfect for the feeling it portrays. The baritone sax solo by Ron Bertolet along with the Danny Flam on trombones and trumpets round out this hit song and would be single.
The depth of talented musicians on display here is staggering. As high a standard as Wily and E D set, the side players kill it every time. Reviewer Reviewer Steve Gabe is a musician, writer, actor, comedian and lawyer. It could easily be the background for any car insurance company commercial with a motorcycle winding down US 1 Pacific Coast Highway. But Russ Green has not had the good fortune for that to happen to him, yet.
He has had to do it the Chicago way. One year at time building his reputation at first as a premier Harmonica player and then adding in his own vocals and writing. The tune is a non-sticky gem popping up in the consciousness just when the spirit lags a little and needs a boost.
The album is a love letter to the Windy City where he was born and raised on the west side. He has performed at the prestigious Chicago Blues Festival and many others over the years. He is just now getting on the map as a featured solo artist with this album which is city slick but gritty in its beneath the surface lyrical content, and truly adventurous in its arrangements.
He sings in a nice soulful baritone reminiscent of the incomparable Bill Withers. Lou Rawls comes to mind as well. Not bad company in the least with ample room to grow. All ten tracks are different from each other. That electric harp sound is the standard today and it serves him well. The sky is the limit with this artist. Gary Allman, a cousin of Duane and Greg, handles vocals, keyboards, acoustic and slide guitar.
Other band members include Joe Weiss on guitar, bass, and vocals, with Shawn Shackelford on drums.

Matt Siegal and the late Luther Wamble also make appearances on guitar. There is plenty to enjoy on this all-original program. The music is well-played and the vocals are heartfelt, if not always engaging.
Followers of the Southern rock idiom will certainly want to give this one several listens. Discerning blues listeners will probably need to look elsewhere. Reviewer Mark Thompson lives in Florida, where he is enjoying the sun and retirement. Music has been a huge part of his life for the past fifty years — just ask his wife! This brand of Blues-Rock is the straight ahead stomping George Thorogood type. There is hard charging drums, loud up-front and on the beat bass and stabs of steely slide guitar.
Shinbone Star hails from Upwey, Victoria, Australia and is obviously a strong bar band. This record seems to be a labor of love and the culmination of a life-long desire to make music.
