Stephen Collins Foster Biography from the Center for American Music, Foster Hall Collection, stephen Foster Memorial, University of Pittsburgh. http://www.pitt.edu/~amerimus/foster.htm
Extractions: Biographical Sketch Stephen Collins Foster, the ninth of William B. and Eliza T. Foster's ten children (plus a son fathered by William before the marriage and later raised as their oldest child), was born July 4, 1826, in a white cottage high on the hillside above the Allegheny River in Lawrenceville , east of Pittsburgh. The tenth child died as an infant, leaving Stephen as the "baby" of the family to be indulged by older brothers and sisters. Foster's life has become part of American legend . One thread of the tale is that he detested school and so was poorly educated. In truth, as a young boy Stephen evinced more interest in music than in other subjects. But as the child of a middle-class family in an era before tax-supported public education, he variously was privately tutored, then schooled at private academies in Pittsburgh and in north-central Pennsylvania. He expressed a distaste for rote learning and recitation, but was an avid reader and eventually became a literate, well-educated person by the standards of his day.

After his parents separated, Stephen and his older brother, David, were raised by their mother.

Stephen made his first short story sale to a mass market men's magazine shortly after his graduation from the University. Throughout the early years of his marriage, he continued to sell stories to men's magazines. Many of these were later gathered into the Night Shift collection or appeared in other anthologies. Carrie for publication. A major paperback sale was soon to provide him with the means to leave teaching and write full-time.

Z Christian nation and to establish himself more firmly as ruler, he sent Abbot Astricus to Rome to petition Pope Sylvester II for the royal dignity and the power to establish episcopal sees. The pope acceded to his wishes and, in addition, presented him with a royal crown with which he was crowned at Gran on 17 August, 1001 (see HUNGARY. History ). He founded a monastery in Jerusalem and hospices for pilgrims at Rome, Ravenna, and Constantinople. He was a personal friend of St. Bruno of Querfurt and corresponded with Abbot St. Odilo of Cluny. The last years of his life were embittered by sickness and family troubles. When on 2 September, 1031, his only son, St. Emeric, lost his life on a bear hunt, his cherished hope of transferring the reins of government into the hands of a pious Christian prince were shattered. During his lifetime a quarrel arose among his various nephews concerning the right of succession, and some of them even took part in a conspiracy against his life. He was buried beside his son at Stuhlweissenburg, and both were canonized together in 1083. His feast is on 2 September, but in Hungary his chief festival is observed on 20 August, the day on which his relics were transferred to Buda. His incorrupt right hand is treasured as the most sacred

T his meeting commemorates a sad occasion, a tragic eventthe passing, seventy years ago, of one who left us a legacy of song and melody that may never be forgotten. Stephen Foster was a man who had but a few pennies to leave in this world, but those things he had created added to the spiritual riches of the world a heritage far more precious than the millions of many an industrial or financial giant. To America Foster has meant much. His songs are so native in their character that there need be no hesitation in stating that his was the most national expression that any of our composers has yet achieved. Born and raised here in Pittsburgh, he was little affected by the foreign music that enslaved those who lived on the seaboard. The voices Stephen heard were those of the minstrel shows, the singing and dancing of negroes on the wharves of the Ohio River, and the sentimental songs of midcentury that were carried through the country by the 'singing families' in concert and that were sung by demure young ladies who played the accompaniments on

Extractions: Help Published in 1895, The Red Badge was quite different from Maggie in style and approach, and brought Crane international fame and quite a bit of money. Rather than plod through moral tropes, the book is subtle and imagistic, while still being firmly entrenched in the realism of the late 1890's in America. Crane's rich portrayal of Henry Fleming's growth through the trials and terrors of a Civil War battle betray the fact that he himself had not yet seen any fighting or battles when he wrote the book. Many veterans of the Civil War (only thirty years had gone by since its end) praised the book for capturing the feelings and pictures of actual combat. Bolstered by the success of The Red Badge and his book of poetry The Black Riders, Crane became subsumed with ideas of war. He was hired to go to Cuba as a journalist to report on the rebellion there against the Spanish. On the way to the island, Crane was in a shipwreck, from which he was originally reported dead. He rowed to shore in a dinghy, along with three other men, having to swim to shore and drop his money in the sea to prevent from drowning. This experience directly led to his most famous short story "The Open Boat" (1897). For various reasons, Crane stopped writing novels during this time and moved primarily to short stories?probably because they could sell in magazines better but also because he was constantly moving. When staying in Jacksonville, Florida, he met the owner of a brothel, Cora Taylor. She accompanied him to Greece as he reported on the Greco-Turkish War for New York newspapers; and stayed with him until the end of his life. At this point, rumors abounded about Crane, few of them good. There was talk of drug addiction, rampant promiscuity, and even Satanism, none of them true. Crane was disgusted with them and eventually relocated to England.
Stephen Leacock Building and pictures of the building, located on the campus of McGill University. http://cac.mcgill.ca/campus/Buildings/Stephen_Leacock.html
Extractions: Stephen Leacock Building McGill Archives The Stephen Leacock Building was named after Stephen Leacock, a Professor of Economics from 1901 to 1944 and a well-known Canadian humorist and author. The edifice was built in 1965 by ARCOP, a firm contributed to by Affleck, Desbarats, Dimokopoulos, Lebensold, and Sise who were also responsible for the University Centre . At this time there were many building projects in progress all over the campus because of the dramatic climb in the enrolment of the University. Many of the faculties and departments had expanded beyond their spaces and needed room to grow, including the Faculty of Arts which had outgrown its ancestral home, the Arts Building. The area chosen for the new building had been, until then, the site of the McGill Observatory and of half of the Presbyterian College , whose remaining half is currently called Morrice Hall. The Leacock Building was originally planned as two towers, the second, which was found to be unnecessary and was never built, would have taken over the site of the remaining half of Morrice Hall, a charming Collegiate Gothic style structure. Leacock is a ten-storey concrete structure that houses, on its lower three floors, twenty-four lecture rooms ranging in capacity from 30 seats to 200, not including the massive lecture room on the first floor which seats 650 students at a time. This large auditorium has no windows in it, to provide fewer distractions, and is half underground with the seats sloping in the same direction as the natural hillside. Since all of the lecture rooms are on the lower floors, they are easily accessible to students and keep the traffic to a minimum in the upper tower which is reserved for 125 offices served by elevators. The lower floors may be entered from the third floor terrace to the west, the second floor terrace to the south, the first floor street level, or from the Arts Building which is connected to Leacock from the east by a glass-walled corridor. Stairs, similar to those on the interior, connect the levels of the terrace.
