Oscar Handlin

first_imgAt a Meeting of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences on March 6, 2012, the following Minute was placed upon the records.Oscar Handlin, Carl M. Loeb University Professor, Emeritus, was the most influential and creative historian of American social life in the second half of the twentieth century.  Born in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Russian Jewish immigrants, steeped in the lore and learning of Jewish culture, he developed in his youngest years a passion for learning—learning, as he wrote again and again, for its own sake, simply to know and understand the world and its people.  It was that passion that led him into and out of a Yeshiva in Brooklyn, through his studies at Brooklyn College, through years of encyclopedic reading in the Brooklyn and New York Public Libraries, and that led him finally to Harvard, which he considered the national citadel of learning.He entered the Harvard graduate school in 1934, at age 18, and after receiving his doctorate under the direction of Professor Arthur Schlesinger, Sr., in 1940, except for two years of teaching in Brooklyn, he taught at Harvard until his retirement.  It is an indication of the early recognition of his talents that his first appointment at Harvard (1945) was as Instructor, then Assistant Professor in Social Science, approved by the History, Psychology, and Sociology Departments.  By then the publication in 1941 of his dissertation on Boston’s immigrants, 1790-1865, had begun a stream of writings—at least forty books written or edited and innumerable articles and reviews—that lasted for over four decades.  His Commonwealth: a Study of the Role of Government in the American Economy: Massachusetts 1774-1816 (1947), written with his wife Mary F. Handlin, is a master work of technical scholarship that revealed, at a time when much of the economy was organized at a local level and democratic impulses had made widely accessible the instruments of state action, the forceful role of government that federalism had misled many to think did not exist.  Four years later his lyric, evocative The Uprooted (1951)—with its famous opening “Once I thought to write a history of the immigrants in America.  Then I discovered that the immigrants were American history”—won the Pulitzer Prize and carried readers, as no work of history had done before, into the interior, emotional world of immigrant experiences.  It stimulated a generation’s interest in the passages of uprooted people through the tortuous strains of resettlement and assimilation.It was his love of learning for its own sake, and of Harvard as the embodiment of it, that made the assault on the University in 1969 and 1970 such a bitter experience for him.  He could understand why students might try to turn the University into a political instrument.  They were ignorant.  And he could understand why political activists unaffiliated with Harvard might do so.  But he could never understand why some of his own colleagues, committed as he was to impartial scholarship and to the integrity of the University, would do so.  It was a savage blow to everything he believed in, and he never fully recovered from it.He was unique in his understanding and explanation of history.  It was not for him an assemblage of information but a form of intellection, a cognitive process, which he expressed year after year in his books and articles and in the classroom.  His lectures were unique.  They contained little descriptive information.  They were analyses of the structures of events and developments and the configurations they formed that explained how things came to be the way they were.  The lectures were dense, the logic tight, and they were difficult for many to grasp.  Yet they were popular—at one point too popular for him.  When attendance in his American Social History class topped 400, he dropped it.  “I did not believe,” he wrote “that an earnest desire for that kind of knowledge really moved that many undergraduates; and I feared that these lectures had become one of those experiences into which people drifted out of habit or reputation.  Therefore I chose subjects which on the face of it were not likely to draw crowds . . . and I offered my courses at an hour that required students either to postpone or skip their lunch.”He was unique too in his sheer competence.  His services to the University were extraordinary. While lecturing to undergraduates, he directed the graduate work of 80 doctoral candidates, whom he drove on, inspired, and protected, contacting socially many in other fields than his own for whom he had no formal responsibility; they all felt that he cared about their interests and would do what he could for their emerging careers.  An excellent administrator, he was a dominant force in the affairs of the History Department, served as the Harvard University Librarian (1979-1984), and began the Library’s modernization.  In a crisis he took over the Directorship of the Harvard University Press (1972).  He founded and directed the Warren Center for Studies in American History as well as his own Center for the Study of the History of Liberty in America. And he was equally active outside the University.  He was a co-founder of a new television station and became a TV commentator.  He served as Fulbright Commissioner, as an Overseer of Brandeis University, a Trustee of the New York Public Library, and he testified in Congress, with great effect, for the reform of American immigration policy.In his last years, with the assistance of his devoted second wife, the historian Lilian Bombach, with whom he wrote the four-volume conclusion to his study of the history of liberty in America as well as several other books, he continued his daily visits to his Widener study.  He died in September 2011, aged 95, having lived a life of true learning, devoted to its transmission to generations of students and to the public at large.Respectfully submitted,Robert DarntonRichard PipesStephan ThernstromBernard Bailyn, Chairlast_img read more

Peru Defeats Shining Path’s Huallaga Faction as VRAEM War Rages On

first_imgBy Dialogo June 21, 2013 LIMA — The sentencing of one of Peru’s most infamous rebels to life in prison means the virtual elimination of the Shining Path’s powerful Huallaga Front — and a major victory in the government’s decades-old battle to wipe out the Maoist terrorist group once and for all. Florindo Flores, better known as “Comrade Artemio,” held sway over the Huallaga Front in the northern jungle from early in the 1990s, and was the last remaining member of the outlawed party to be arrested or killed. Until recently, the Huallaga was Peru’s principal drug-trafficking zone. On June 7, following a six-month trial for drug trafficking, murder and terrorism, he was sentenced to life in prison as well as a $200 million fine. Flores, arrested in February 2012, denied all charges until the end, insisting in a tearful plea two days before sentencing that he was a political prisoner. Anti-Terrorism Prosecutor Julio Galindo said he was pleased with the verdict, although he would have liked a stiffer penalty; his office had proposed fining Flores nearly $4 billion. “There were no doubts in this trial. We provided abundant evidence showing Artemio’s role as a terrorist leader and drug trafficker,” Galindo told Diálogo after the verdict was announced. “We expected nothing less than a life sentence.” Over the last 16 months, several dozen followers of Flores have been captured, and no terrorist attacks have been reported in the zone. A state of emergency remains in force there, but police commanders in charge of the zone say full pacification should be achieved shortly. VRAEM displaces Huallaga as main coca-producing zone The situation is quite different in Peru’s south-central jungle, in a Belgium-sized valley formed by the Apurimac, Ene and Mantaro rivers. Known as the VRAEM, this area has been under a state of emergency for the past 10 years due to Shining Path activity. In 2009, this area displaced the Huallaga as Peru’s primary drug-trafficking zone. The VRAEM faction, led by Victor Quispe Palomino and two of his brothers, began ratcheting up their actions just as the state was dismantling Flores’ columns in the north. In 2012, Quispe Palomino columns killed 20 police officers and soldiers, alarming the government of President Ollanta Humala. The rebels retreated somewhat after an attack on an airstrip last October, which destroyed three helicopters used to service the Camisea gas pipeline. But they renewed their activities in April, with attacks on mixed military-police patrols and the destruction of four mobile telephone towers in the past two months. Shining Path rebels also killed two soldiers, one in April, and another in a June 11 clash with a security patrol. The latest fight came after security forces stepped up actions in the VRAEM — which has 20,000 hectares of coca under production — to locate a Shining Path column that briefly took over the camp of a construction company building a highway in the zone. The rebel column stole food, medicines and communications equipment, though the Joint Chiefs of Staff denied initial reports that dynamite had also been stolen. That attack was reminiscent of an April 2012 incident, in which a Shining Path column took over a camp used for pipeline construction. They kidnapped 36 workers, holding them for nearly one week. Is violence a response to alternative development programs? Analysts say the stepped-up terrorist actions are in response not only to an increased military-police presence in the zone, but also government-led development program slated to invest close to $1 billion in the VRAEM in the coming years. That includes $300 million worth of infrastructure and social programs this year, as well as a coca eradication plan in the zone. Jaime Antezana, who has followed the Shining Path since the 1990s, said the rebels see opposition to coca eradication as a way of gaining a stronger foothold among the population. The Shining Path is no longer a Maoist party, but a “terrorist franchise in the service of drug trafficking,” he told Diálogo. Antezana added that armed actions “are meant to keep the state from moving in with forced coca eradication.” He said this is a tactic Artemio and his forces followed in the Huallaga, promising to stop eradication by attacking Corah brigades. In late May, Shining Path terrorists interfered with radio signals in the VRAEM, interrupting transmissions with a clandestine broadcast calling for farmers to “defend their land, crops and water, organizing militarily with weapons in hand and under the direction of the Communist Party of Peru.” Other analysts, however, said the government should keep its battle against Shining Path terrorists separate from its anti-narcotics and rural development programs. Manuel Boluarte, who has studied subversion and drug trafficking for several decades, said the Humala government needs to clearly distinguish between the drug and terrorism fight. “The national police, which were in charge of anti-narcotics operations in the VRAEM, have lost autonomy now that the Army is in control of all operations in the valley. The Shining Path is expanding its area of operation and increasing the rhythm of attacks, which requires all their attention,” Boluarte said.last_img read more

Clippers’ Patrick Beverley focused on harnessing intensity

first_img“He keeps me focused all the time,” said Clippers center Ivica Zubac, whose locker is positioned next to Beverley’s at the end of the horseshoe nearest the door.“Every time I try in the locker room, when I say something outside of basketball, he will be like, ‘C’mon, Zu, we got to focus, we got a game.’ He’s always on me and I love it. A guy that is always locked in, he don’t care about anything else in the pregame and that stuff, when you got a guy like that, you got to return the energy, can’t be messing around and doing other stuff, you got to be locked in.”Off the court and then on it, too.“Last couple games, I’ve been successful staying out of foul trouble,” said Beverley, who fouled out against Houston on Dec. 19, but otherwise has spread three fouls over four games entering Saturday’s game against the Utah Jazz (7:30 p.m., Fox Sports Prime Ticket).“Let’s hope that carries on into tomorrow.” With seconds to go in the Clippers’ 111-106 victory, James worked himself into position to attempt a game-tying 3-pointer – but Beverley, draped all over the 6-9 forward, jarred loose the ball, poking it out of bounds on a play where it was determined, after review, to have touched James last. That ruling effectively sealed the win for the Clippers, who got the ball back with a 109-106 lead and 3.6 seconds remaining.Two days later after practice in Playa Vista, Beverley wasn’t interested in weighing in on any of the debate surrounding his play, although he continued his season-long discussion about ongoing attempts to harness his passion.“Sometimes, it’s how the whistle goes,” Beverley said. “I think trying to control and harness that emotion that I have and don’t let it bleed out on referees and other players. I think that’s the biggest thing I’ve been trying to work on.”“He’s learning,” Rivers said. “Early on, he was committing those bad fouls at (mid)court and stuff and now he’s not wasting them, he’s kind of conserving them – and Pat with fouls at the end of the game, that’s gonna be tough. … We want him to stay aggressive, just gotta be smart about it. Can’t have the dumb reaches when you don’t need to. But he’s still aggressive.”Working with the ultra-aggressive Beverley is as intense as one might imagine because, no, he isn’t shy about sharing his winning tenacity with his teammates. Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error PLAYA VISTA — When he watched video of Wednesday’s Christmas Day game against the Lakers, it looked a lot like it did in real time, Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.“I thought we could have played better, bottom line,” he said. “We won the game (but) I thought we won it more from mental perseverance than anything else. We did not play great and I guess the silver lining is: but we won the game.”The Clippers’ mental fortitude starts and stops with Patrick Beverley, their 6-foot-1 pest who was assessed a technical foul in the second quarter Wednesday but no personal fouls otherwise. He again outrebounded Lakers’ big man Anthony Davis – nine to six, on this occasion – and made LeBron James pay for trying to take a charge early in the game, a defensive effort that resulted in a called block and a collision the Lakers’ star said aggravated his sore groin.And then, in the end, Beverley did his part to turn the formerly quaint out-of-bounds call into a topic of debate about video replay and the spirit of basketball’s basic rules.

Msgr. Lowery Celebrates 40th Years of Priesthood

first_imgBy John BurtonRED BANK — For four decades The Rev. Msgr. Philip A. Lowery has dedicated his life to his faith and addressing the spiritual needs of those in his parishes and it’s been a life well spent.“It has been very rewarding,” said Lowery about the 40th anniversary of his ordination to priesthood, with 26 of them spent at St. James Church, 94 Broad St., as of July, the longest tenure in his career with the Church.“It has turned out beautifully,” Lowery said of his life thus far, continuing to appreciate the opportunity to share in the lives of so many, administering the sacraments, participating in the joys and offering comfort and solace in times of pain. “The people have made it very rewarding in many different ways,” he noted. “They’ve touched my life in many ways.”For Lowery what also continues to offer him joy is “to be able to celebrate with people to liturgy,” the religious services associated with the Roman Catholic faith.Lowery, 67, serves as pastor and monsignor for the parish church which counts 4,200 families, and its two schools, St. James grammar school, with about 400 students, and Red Bank Catholic High School, with approximately 900 students who live in Monmouth, Middlesex and Ocean counties.Msgr. Philip A. Lowery of St. James Roman Catholic Church in Red Bank celebrated the 40th anniversary of his ordination May 22.As pastor and monsignor, Lowery function with the schools is akin to a superintendent, he explained, with the principals handling the day-to-day operations. As for his title of monsignor, Lowery down played it, calling it simply an honorary designation, “Nothing more than that.” But the title is designated from the Pope through the local diocese.Lowery has for the last 21 years served as chief of chaplains for the NJ State Police. That posting has him oversee the other police chaplains – three rabbis, three ministers, three Roman Catholic priests and a Muslim imam, and coordinating their efforts to provide support and counseling for officers and their families.Lowery in his role with the State Police was called into service in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks nearly 15 years ago, when he volunteered to join its Task Force 1, “just to be there” for rescue workers and others on the outskirts of Ground Zero, he said.The same was true of his traveling to New Orleans for that city’s recovery efforts following Hurricane Katrina in 2005.“Your presence there,” at such catastrophic events (even locally after 9/11 when St. James’ parish lost six of its members, and five parents of RBC students), “said so much to so many people,” Lowery remembered.Lowery grew up in Jersey City as an only child, raised in the Catholic faith and attending Catholic schools. At about 19 he decided the life of a priest was his calling and “I wanted to give it a try.” He attended Holy Apostles College and Seminary, in Cromwell, Connecticut, and did his graduate studies at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary, Emmitsburg, Maryland. He went on to serve at St. Joseph’s parish in Toms River, from 1976 to 1987; and then at St. Barnabas, in Bayville, before coming to St. James in 1990, where he’s been ever since, seeing families grow and offering the sacraments to a second generation. And “I can’t image doing anything else,” than what he has for the last 40 years maintaining he’s “very happy and content” in his life’s work.And “God willing, if it is His plan,” Lowery hopes to continue to serve and serve here at St. James.last_img read more

Rebels, Leafs resume rivalry tonight in Nelson

first_imgBy The Nelson Daily SportsThe Nelson Leafs will look to snap out of a two-game Kootenay International Junior Hockey League slide.However, it won’t be easy as the opposition is the Murdoch leading Castlegar Rebels. The Leafs meet the Rebels in a two-game home-and-home series beginning tonight at 7 p.m. the NDCC Arena.The last time the teams play, Nelson shook off two-minute slide late in the first period, out scoring the Murdoch Division leaders 3-1 during the final 40 minutes en route to a 5-3 win.
Castlegar had not lost to Nelson prior to the recent win.A key to the Leafs win was the ability of Nelson to hold Rebel sniper Ryan Aynsley off the score sheet.

AGM sets foundation as Nelson Leafs prepare for upcoming KIJHL season

first_imgFormer Nelson Mayor John Dooley is back at the helm for the Green and White as the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League club held its annual general meeting Wednesday.Dooley is joined by returning board members Karilynn Carr, Gioconda Gordon, Randy Craik and Lauretta Wilson.New members voted to the board include Jeff Wright, Cory Viala and Peter Bayne. The trio replace Tony Maida, MJ Swetlikoe and Wendy Maida, who did not let their names stand for board positions.“I put my name forward again because I believe we’ve turned the corner with the team and now have a bit of stability with the organization,” Dooley said. “Having said that there’s a few more things we want to get accomplished.”Last season was the first full campaign for the coaching staff of Mario DiBella, Sean Dooley and Isaac MacLeod. The Leafs, finishing third in the Murdoch Division due to a late surge during the final weeks of the season, upset Castlegar Rebels in the first round of the playoffs — storming back from a 2-1 deficit to win the best-of-seven series in six games.Nelson was then eliminated from the post season by eventual KIJHL Champion Beaver Valley Nitehawks in a tight series that was not indicative of the final 4-0 sweep. The five playoff games combined along with solid attendance throughout the season and influx of revenue from Nelson Leafs Bottle Depot, allowed the franchise to survive financially in the always-tough entertainment business.“We’re okay, but had a tough year as revenues were down for a couple of reason at the Bottle Depot,” Dooley explained.“For some reason, we’re not getting the traffic through the facility as well we had a theft where someone stole money.”“Plus, we invested money into the (Bottle Depot) facility for the past six months,” he added.Dooley said staff is discussing ways to increase traffic through offering different products.The coaching staff is back for another season behind the bench.DiBella has been scouting players at several BC Hockey League camps and is excited at the prospects interested in coming to Nelson in the fall.“A lot of teams measure success in wins and losses, and while we want to win we also measure success in the development of players and the quality of the individuals we attract,” Dooley said.Nelson opens training camp in mid-August.Exhibition games are set for later with the puck drop on the 2017-18 KIJHL regular season set for September.last_img read more
