CENSORED!  WALT WHITMAN’S LEAVES OF GRASS
May 1, 2014 –
A new exhibit at the SWC/SCL explores Walt Whitman’s controversial masterpiece, Leaves of Grass. From its first appearance in 1855 until Whitman’s death in 1892, this collection of poems was often the target of censors due to its frank portrayal of sensual pleasure.

The Marc Reisner Collection is now open for research.

The Southwest Collection/Special Collections Building

A gallery along the north side of the building houses permanent displays on the Southwest Collection as well as the other units of the University Library, which have offices in the facility. Those offices include the University Archives, the Archive of the Vietnam Conflict and the Library’s Rare Books Collection. Additionally, the facility is the home for editorial offices of the West Texas Historical Association and its annual yearbook.

Offices in the building open onto a rotunda beneath the third tower. The Library’s 1688 Coronelli Globe is displayed in the rotunda.

Behind the offices are the non-public areas of the facility where documents and materials are processed. The building includes an accessioning area where materials are received and logged in. From there materials, whether paper records, photographs or films/audiotapes/video tapes, go to their specific areas for processing before they are taken to the stacks or the appropriate vault for storage.

Upstairs the stacks area offers a climate-controlled environment that provides a constant temperature and humidity as well as a positive ventilation outflow which helps prevent the intrusion of bacteria or fungi which could damage valuable books and documents.

Additionally, the facility has a conservation laboratory funded by the Hoblitzelle Foundation. The Hoblitzelle Conservation Lab will provide an appropriate environment for state-of-the-art preservation of valuable and one-of-a-kind materials.

Selections from these two gifts are on exhibit here.

Mercando el relampago
September 30, 2017 – January 28, 2018

Marcando el relámpago is a collaborative exhibition, marking exchanges between an atmospheric scientist, Eric Bruning, and a visual artist, Tina Fuentes. The science and the art combine to present insights into lightning—a dynamic, powerful, and spectacular component of our planet’s weather systems. The language and practice of science often takes the form of rigorous logic and precise experiments. Technical analyses result in charts and graphs that compare theories to experiments. These processes seek to provide clear rationales for phenomena observed in the world. Art encourages understanding through expressive means: manipulation of color, shape, movement, composition, texture and more. In this exhibition, science and art combine to advance our understanding of lightning.

And what is the science of this project?

By the time one lightning strike reaches the ground, five have often taken place overhead but are hidden by a cloud. Observations of lightning by scientists peel back the cloud and show where each lightning path begins, and how far it extends. Sometimes the path is short, and sometimes it is long.

The short lightning paths remind scientists of choppy gusts of wind in turbulent clouds; the long paths of lightning are like the smooth motions of layered, extensive clouds. These observations suggested a scientific experiment to discover if the character of the motion of the clouds and the length of lightning were linked. The resulting Kinematic* Texture and Lightning Experiment measured how electrical energy was distributed among different lightning paths, and how the measured electrical energy compared to the distribution of energy in the turbulent motions of clouds.

*Kinematics, pronounced kin-e-mat-ics, refers to the study of the motion of objects or groups of objects without considering what causes the motion. In this case, “kinematic texture” refers to the variations of wind.

And what is the art of this project?

In this exhibition, the measurements from the scientific experiments connect with drawings, paintings and two video installations that explore the textures, movements, lights and energy of thunderstorm clouds and the paths lightning takes through them. The art works combine physical and emotional sensations that we encounter as we watch and experience the clouds and lightning of a thunderstorm.

The markings of colors and intensities of light reflected by the clouds; the gestures of strong and subtle, rapid and slow movement of lightning and clouds; the sense of immersion in a storm; the impact of a thunderstorm on birds; and even the smells of the rain, the dust in the wind, and the electricity. . .all of these experiences flow through the paintings and video. Even the scale of the art works evoke small and large storms, distant and intimate experiences of clouds and lightning.

And for you?

This exhibition melds the art of Tina Fuentes and the science of Eric Bruning. What is perhaps more difficult to exhibit is the creative dialogue between them: how art and science investigate hand in hand these weather phenomenons. How do they marry understandings of the world? This dimension of the project is left for you to explore. You, the audience, will discover this marriage between art and science.

Leonardo’s Kitchen:  Casual Contemplations
Through January 2018

This participatory installation incites consideration of how words and actions are chosen by showing how voices and bodies simultaneously affect three different spaces. Changes in material surfaces and sound are made apparent based on the energy produced by participants’ voices and movements through space. Still, words disappear once they are uttered and physical actions dematerialize in fleeting moments. Despite the ephemeral nature of our words and actions, our expressions can induce consequences that manifest profound changes in the world. In this way, this installation renders awareness that our words and actions constitute our footprints in the world, which are carved in the memory of the people we impact directly or indirectly

LONG TERM EXHIBITIONS

THE DIAMOND M GALLERY WING-ROMANCING THE WEST
The Diamond M Galleries showcase the collection of the late Clarence Thurston and Evelyn Claire Littleton McLaughlin.

One of the Diamond M galleries focuses on a large collection of leading western artists. A second gallery focuses on the works of N.C. Wyeth, a leading illustrator of the late 19th and 20th centuries. Wyeth created the illustrations for the classic books Treasure Island, Last of the Mohicans, and dozens of others. Copies of these books are also available in the gallery. He also did illustrations for major magazines of the time.

BEYOND EXPRESSIONS IN CLAY GALLERY OF SOUTHWEST INDIAN ART
The William C. and Evelyn M. Davies Gallery of Southwest Indian Art displays an extensive collection of Southwest Native American pottery and textile. The collection is owned by the Davies and represents about 20 different Native American tribes. The rugs represent specific patterns and styles of the individual tribes. Each rug is hand woven.

The pottery of the Native American tribes includes a variety of utilitarian as well as ceremonial and trade vessels. A number of Storytellers, such as the one at right, are included in the collection.

CHANGING WORLDS:  DINOSAURS, DIVERSITY AND DRIFTING CONTINENTS
Changing Worlds looks at dinosaurs of different types, offers theories about how the earth was formed, how dinosaurs developed and eventually disappeared.

The exhibit features the work of the Museum’s own internationally known paleontologist Dr. Sankar Chatterjee – whose work seems to establish that today’s birds were likely yesterday’s dinosaurs. Most scientists believe birds evolved during the Jurassic time. But Dr. Chatterjee has discovered Protoavis – it’s about a 210 million year old – much older than other scientists think birds developed.

AZ<>NM<>TX — 20th and 21st CENTURY ART IN TEXAS, NEW MEXICO AND ARIZONA
TALKINGTON GALLERY OF ART

The Talkington Gallery of Art combines works from the Museum’s collection with a significant donation from Margaret and J.T. Talkington, long-time Lubbock business and civic leaders. The gallery features selections from 20th and 21st Century art of the Southwestern United States. This art reflects the people and landscapes of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and portions of Colorado and Utah.

No particular type of landscape represents the Southwest, and no singular art style defines it. The art works on exhibit sample many divergent paths that artists from the Southwest have followed, from realism to romanticism, from impressionism to expressionism, from minimalism to conceptualism, and more.

Among the artists in the exhibition are Georgia O’Keeffe, Fremont Ellis, Beatrice Mandelman, Gene Kloss, Edward Curtis, Mark Klett, John Sloan, Dorothy Brett, and William Lester.

REMNANT TRUST
A new partnership between Texas Tech University and The Remnant Trust, Inc. brings a collection of original, first edition, and rare early written works to display at the Museum. These works are intended to inspire an elevated public understanding of individual liberty and human dignity through hands-on availability of the world’s great ideas in original form. The Remnant Trust, Inc. will maintain a permanent presence in the Museum.

A new display will open February 29 with works that explore the relationship between economics and political freedom. The main collection of The Remnant Trust, Inc. is housed on the Texas Tech campus in the Southwest Collection/ Special Collections Library.

The Museum of Texas Tech University houses a diverse range of collections including: anthropology, fine arts, clothing and textiles, history, natural sciences and paleontology. As an educational and research component of Texas Tech University, the Museum is committed to serving our diverse community, through a range of exhibitions and public programming. The Museum is a non-profit institution with free admission.

The Museum was founded in 1929 as the West Texas Museum, just four years after the creation of what was then known as Texas Technological College.

Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums since 1990, the Museum is home to more than 7 million objects. Only 3% of the nation’s nearly 35,000 museums hold this accreditation. It also is a teaching and research facility offering a masters degree in museum science.

The Museum’s Natural Science Research Laboratory maintains major natural history collections of mammals, birds, invertebrates and genetic resources. These collections are available to researchers at academic, scientific, and government institutions around the world for scientific investigation, discovery and problem-solving in the natural sciences.

Lubbock Lake Landmark, a National Historic Landmark, is an internationally known archeological and natural history preserve containing an extensive cultural record of life on the Southern Plains dating back 12,000 years.

The Museum is a participant in Lubbock First Friday Art Trail and a member of Blue Star Museums and the Green Museums Initiative.

Mission Statement

Daniel Blagg:  Roadside Distractions
December 1, 2017 – January 27, 2018

Blagg’s latest work includes his stylistically flat and dilapidated representational scenes of what were once gleaming signs of commercialism rendered with an abundance of metaphorical comments on all aspects of contemporary society.

Artist Statement
“It’s so us, it’s so American, that waste of America, and capitalism and ill-gotten gains.  And in this consumer society we just run through stuff, and there’s something desperate in that mindset.  I think in that desperation there’s a truth about ourselves… Are we creating something that’s going to make us extinct?  Is this overkill?  What are we doing with what we have, and where is it going?  There’s something revealing in that limbo…it really says something about us.”- Daniel Blagg

The Texas native has been a fixture in the Fort Worth art scene for over four decades.  His work has received awards from Preservation is the Art of the City and the Hunting Prize and his work is included in the collections of Chase Bank, Fidelity Investments, The Grace Museum, Abilene, TX, Museum of the Southwest, Midland, TX, and the Old Jail House Arts Center, Albany, TX.  His public art includes the DFW Terminal D Project and the Worthington Hotel in Fort Worth, TX.

Martin McDonald Gallery
Rosa M. Villoslada: Unknown Faces.
January 5, 2018 – February 17, 2018

The Unknown Faces project focuses on the form and everyday challenges of immigrant, female farm workers.

The Unknown Faces project is an act of solidarity to farm workers focusing on the female subject, it has the intention to disseminate love and humanization to the immigrant that spends day after day on the fields growing our food and therefore hopefully can help to reduce the indifference in our society towards this dedicated hardworking people as they are mothers, sisters, and in some cases the only support to their families.

Artist Statement

I am a capturer of those moments, situations, events and more, that will make a difference in our reality in this world.

As a photographer is my intention is to aware people of the different realities that we create in daily bases of life.

I am a witness of circumstances and in an act and process of learning myself, I am sharing and educating others.

Living in Washington State in 2015, I spend one year documenting women farm workers in Yakima Valley, I followed them in all different task and jobs, different times and weather. These particular photos are about the hops from the seeds planted to harvesting from April to August. Women are the main workers in the valley, they spend long days in the fields in hot and cold weather, most of them are migrants, mothers, sisters, and fathers for their kids.

My photography is an act of solidarity to my own generation, to the society, to stop creating indifference, and disseminate love and humanization for our future generations.

Thank you.

Cody Arnall’s work investigates themes of personal and shared histories. His installation, Who’s Got a Price on Their Head?, is a closer examination of aggression and the idea that we are building our own destruction through a desire for power.

Statement
My work investigates themes of personal and shared histories. With that in mind, Who’s Got a Price on Their Head?, is a closer examination of aggression and the idea that we are building our own destruction through a desire for power.

Robert E. Arnall was a U.S. Military Telegrapher at Operation Crossroads in Bikini Atoll leading up to the Cold War (peacetime).

I didn’t know my grandfather, but his memory bothers me though stories of his anger, alcoholism, aggression and the abuse he caused my father.

My father is not an easy person.

In Paducah, KY, I witnessed an American Pit Bull Terrier chase, catch and eat a cat in a neighbor’s backyard.  A woman was on top of the dog punching it, and spraying it in the face with pepper spray.  The dog did not let go.  The cat and the dog were of the same owner.

Mortality is inevitable.

The Buddy Holly Center is partnering with The Buddy Holly Educational Foundation headquartered in London, England, to open a new permanent exhibition in the Center’s Foyer Gallery beginning on Friday, February 3, 2017.

The exhibition will feature an acoustic Akin guitar signed by legendary performer Sir Paul McCartney, and numerous framed certificates signed by the many Foundation musical ambassadors who recognize Buddy Holly’s inspirational musical influence in the early years of Rock and Roll.  The mission of The Buddy Holly Educational Foundation is to honor Buddy’s legacy as well as to make Buddy and Maria Elena Holly’s dream of extending musical education, including songwriting, production, arranging, orchestration, and performance, to new generations regardless of income or ethnicity or learning levels. We will empower a new generation to follow in Buddy’s footsteps.

The Foundation will periodically lend additional items for the exhibition from its extensive collection of artifacts.  The Center will use this opportunity to display other items from its collection, namely, Buddy’s bedroom furniture, acquired by the Center through the auspices of Civic Lubbock, Inc.

BUDDY HOLLY GALLERY
https://www.mylubbock.us/departmental-websites/departments/buddy-holly-center/buddy-holly-gallery

The Buddy Holly Gallery features a permanent exhibition on the life and music of Buddy Holly. Artifacts owned by the City of Lubbock, as well as other items that are on loan, are presented in this exciting exhibition. Included in the display are Buddy Holly’s Fender Stratocaster; a song book used by Holly and the Crickets, clothing, photographs, recording contracts, tour itineraries, Holly’s glasses, homework assignments, report cards, and much more

ABOUT THE CENTER

The Buddy Holly Center features 2,500 square feet of gallery space dedicated to the presentation of changing contemporary visual arts programs. These exhibitions are a continuation of a tradition of quality initiatives that were presented by the Lubbock Fine Arts Center from 1984 – 1998. With the relocation of the Fine Arts Center to the Buddy Holly Center in 1999, we continue the commitment to present challenging visual arts exhibitions that serve as a crucial resource for showcasing contemporary arts of the region and the nation.

Art is a form of communication independent of language… It is a way of manifesting human uniqueness. It is a way of reminding us that life is infinitely fragile, infinitely precious. – Norman Cousins

The Buddy Holly Center, a historical site, has dual missions; preserving, collecting and promoting the legacy of Buddy Holly and the music of Lubbock and West Texas, as well as providing exhibits on Contemporary Visual Arts and Music, for the purpose of educating and entertaining the public. The vision of the Buddy Holly Center is to discover art through music by celebrating legacy, culture and community.

Exhibitions and programs reflect the diverse cultural characteristics of the region and encourage interaction between artists and the community. The Center collects, preserves and interprets artifacts relevant to Lubbock’s most famous native son, Buddy Holly, as well as to other performing artists and musicians of West Texas. Changing exhibitions in the visual arts provide an arena for celebrating the technical virtuosity and creative talents of fine artists at work in a region distinguished by vast distances and a rich tradition of creative resources.

The West Texas Walk of Fame, featuring the Buddy Holly statue, by sculptor Grant Speed, is located inside the Buddy and Maria Elena Holly Plaza, just west of the Center, on the corner of Crickets Avenue and 19th Street. The Plaza is open to the public dawn to dusk, year round. The West Texas Walk of Fame, and its induction process, are a project of Civic Lubbock, Inc.

Exhibits

The Bayer Museum of Agriculture takes you from horse drawn implements to the tech-Savvy, computer GPS, driven equipment and farmers of today.

The Alton Brazell Exhibit Hall contains the museum’s large collection of historic farming artifacts. From restored antique tractors to harvesting equipment, highlights include and interactive Blacksmith Shop, a history of cotton ginning exhibit, and the largest display of pedal tractors in the United States.

The Central Exhibit hall features the Crops: Harvesting the Facts exhibit about the major crops grown in the United States, The Cotton Harvesting Experience, and the Bayer Crop Science Exhibit. These exhibits are interactive with a focus on modern agriculture, its science and practices.

In the early 1930’s, to spur the economy from the depression and help American farmers, President Roosevelt and his administration, started “The Ropes Project” and/or “The Colony”. This area was an area of approximately 16,000 acres northwest of Ropesville, Texas. Approximately 77 families received, by a lottery system, a farm ranging from approximately 120-200 acres. It included a framed two-bedroom house of approximately 792 square feet, a windmill, and a barn. This house is one of the last original houses from the project. Future plans include the addition of a windmill, chicken coop and grainary.

House donated by Larry and Rebecca Smith in loving memory of Mildred Knight Server.

Outdoor Exhibits:  A real working pivot irrigation system and a historic 1930s farmstead can be found among the tractors and machines showcased in our outdoor exhibits.

SAM JOHNSON VIETNAM ARCHIVE

Created in 1989, The Vietnam Center and Archive is home to the largest collection of Vietnam related material outside the U.S. National Archives.  The Vietnam Center and Archive collects and preserves the documentary record of the Vietnam War, and supports and encourages research and education regarding all aspects of the American Vietnam Experience.

About the Vietnam Center

In May 1989, a group of Vietnam veterans from West Texas gathered at Texas Tech University to discuss what they might do, in a positive way, about their experiences in Vietnam. That group’s immediate decision was to form a Vietnam Archive and begin collecting and preserving materials relating to the American Vietnam experience.

In November 1989, the Board of Regents of Texas Tech University established the Vietnam Center, with the dual missions of funding and guiding the development of the Vietnam Archive and encouraging continuing study of all aspects of the American Vietnam experience.

The group of veterans who first met in May 1989 were invited to form a board to provide guidance and support for the Vietnam Center. Since then, the Vietnam Center Advisory Board has met regularly to provide advice as the Vietnam Center and Archive at Texas Tech has evolved. Many of the veterans who attended the first meeting in May 1989 continue to advise the Vietnam Center today. In this way, the Vietnam Center remains very closely connected to America’s Vietnam Veteran community.

The mission of the Vietnam Center at Texas Tech University is to support and encourage research and education regarding all aspects of the American Vietnam experience; promoting a greater understanding of this experience and the peoples and cultures of Southeast Asia. Its functions are threefold: support for the Vietnam Archive and the collection and preservation of pertinent historical source material; promotion of education through exhibits, classroom instruction, educational programs, and publications; and encouragement of related scholarship through organizing and hosting conferences and symposia, academic, educational, and cultural exchanges, and the publishing of scholarly research.

Ogden Williams Collection

The Vietnam Center seeks to provide a forum for all points of view and for all topics relating to Indochina, particularly – but not limited to – the American military involvement there. At our conferences and symposia, we encourage the presentation of papers by veterans and others who directly participated in and supported wartime events as well as by individuals who opposed the war. We encourage participation by our former allies in South Vietnam but also offer the same participation to those who supported the government in Hanoi.

Similarly, we place equal importance upon preserving records relating to all aspects of the Vietnam War. It is as important to us to preserve the records of US veterans, military and civilian, who served in Southeast Asia as well as civilians active on the homefront to include the antiwar movement. We want to preserve a complete history of the war. To do otherwise would be a disservice to history.

In addition to the Vietnam Archive and its component projects, the Vietnam Center administers a number of special projects and events, including scholarships, outreach programs, and Conferences and Symposiums, as well as numerous publications, including the Friends of the Vietnam Center newsletter and the Modern Southeast Asia series in association with the Texas Tech University Press.

The Vietnam Center is also raising money for a new state-of-the-art facility that will house The Vietnam Center, Archive, and Museum. If you are interested in supporting this endeavor, please visit The Vietnam Center Building Site. If you are interested in supporting the Vietnam Center and Archive in other ways, you can contribute to our scholarships or you can donate artifacts and materials to The Vietnam Archive.

About the Archive

The Vietnam Archive mission is to collect and preserve the documentary record of the Vietnam War. The first collection received by the Archive – a package of letters from a Navy hospital corpsman to his family while serving in Vietnam – symbolizes our commitment to preserve the record of individuals and provide greater understanding of their experiences. While the Vietnam Archive continues this commitment as its primary objective, it has expanded its collection policy to include records of veterans’ organizations and scholars of the period as well as other individuals and organizations who share experiences from the war in Vietnam.

Douglas Pike Collection: Other Manuscripts – American Friends of Vietnam

The Vietnam Archive has collected millions of pages of material and tens of thousands of photographs, slides, maps, periodicals, audio, moving images, and books related to the Vietnam War, Indochina, and the impact of the war on the United States and Southeast Asia.

The preservation of historical records provides the principal means for future generations to fully understand the past. Monuments call to mind significant events, but only records provide the basis for historical narratives, insight and understanding. In this way, the Vietnam Archive stands as a living memorial to all those who played some part in the nation’s “Vietnam experience.” Using the Archive, all those who are interested can study and better understand the people, places and events of this critical time in history.

DONATING TO THE ARCHIVE

The Archive accepts donations as small as a single item or as large as hundreds of boxes. Donations do not have to be organized and do not have to pertain to a famous person, event or organization. We accept papers, books, films, audio, moving images, and artifacts. If you are interested in donating to the Vietnam Archive, look for more information in our Information for Donors section.

RESEARCHING

There are two ways to conduct research using Vietnam Archive materials: in person and online, using the information provided in the Information for Researchers section and, more importantly, through the Virtual Vietnam Archive.

CONTACT INFO AND HELP

Contact information for all of the elements of the Vietnam Center and Archive is available. If you are having trouble finding what you are looking for on this website, try our help page or site map.

VIETNAMESE AMERICAN HERITAGE PROJECT

Created in 2008, the Vietnamese American Heritage Project (VAHP) supports the Vietnam Archive’s mission to document the war from all perspectives by providing documentation of the post-war social and political history of Vietnamese Americans who immigrated to the United States during and after the Vietnam conflict. A component of the archive, the VAHP is comprised of a full time Vietnamese American Heritage Archivist and one part time student assistant who collect, preserve, and make accessible to the public materials that document the experiences and contributions of Vietnamese Americans in American society. The VAHP aims to enhance the study of the Vietnamese immigration and resettlement experience by providing reference services to researchers and increasing Vietnamese American participation in the archive’s Oral History Project, conducting outreach activities, and developing cooperative relationships with other institutions dedicated to preserving Vietnamese American’s rich heritage.

TEACHERS’ RESOURCES WEB

The goal of the Teachers Resource Web is to aid educators and students who teach and take classes on the Vietnam War. The site is intended to assist teachers and students at all levels – from primary school to college. Site materials are designed to accommodate a range of teaching and learning situations from a single 50-minute lecture that is part of a general US history class to a semester or quarter-long dedicated course focusing exclusively on the Vietnam War.

VIETNAM GRAFFITI PROJECT

Richard H. MacKinnon Collection [VA066112]

The Vietnam Graffiti Project is dedicated to preserving and providing access to a remarkable array of historical material from various ships that supported United States military forces in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War. The materials you will find here include bunk canvases, ships logs, nautical charts, and other artifacts and documents. The collection provides insight into life onboard these ships, especially troop transports.

CDEC DIGITIZATION PROJECT

The Combined Document Exploitation Center (CDEC) Microfilm Collection consists of 954 reels of documents captured from North Vietnamese and Vietcong forces during the Vietnam War. Materials from this collection are being added to the Virtual Vietnam Archive daily, and plans are underway to make the entire collection available online, including original metadata collected when the materials were filmed.

ORAL HISTORIES AND DIGITAL MATERIALS

In addition to its mission of collecting materials concerning Vietnam, the Vietnam War, and Southeast Asia, the Vietnam Archive currently administers two projects, the Oral History Project and the Virtual Vietnam Archive.

The Oral History Project

In 1999 the Vietnam Center and Archive initiated the Oral History Project (OHP). The history of the wars in Southeast Asia is not complete without the inclusion of the voices of those who were in some way involved. To that end, the mission of the OHP is to create and preserve a more complete record of the wars in Southeast Asia by preserving, through recorded interviews, the recollections and experiences of all who were involved in those wars. There is no political agenda in the development of the Archive or the Oral History Project. Anyone can participate, whether an American veteran, a former ally or enemy of the U.S., an anti-war protester, a government employee, a family member of a veteran, etc. The more breadth and depth the OHP has in its participants, the better and more authentic the collection and preservation of the history of the wars will be.

The Virtual Vietnam Archive

Earl R. Rhine Collection [VAN018343]

The Virtual Vietnam Archive enables scholars, students and all others interested in this remarkable period in our world history to conduct research directly from universities, schools, libraries, and homes. Of equal importance, it will enable Vietnam veterans – those who actually served – to access records that might be of importance to them in their continuing efforts to understand their own experiences. It will facilitate the research and writing of participants’ memoirs, and will give high school and college students an important and authoritative source of information as they seek to understand the complexities of the Vietnam War.

When the Virtual Vietnam Archive project is complete, it will include a record for every item in the Vietnam Archive. All non-copyrighted items are available online, free of charge. The Virtual Archive currently includes finding aids for all Vietnam Archive collections, and over 4 million pages of materials online, including documents, photographs, slides, negatives, audio and moving image recordings, artifacts, and oral histories. New items are being added daily.

The Virtual Vietnam Archive employees a number of full-time employees, and numerous part-time student workers, both graduate students and undergrads. Materials are digitized using a variety of equipment, including HP flatbed scanners, Fujitsu high-speed and flatbed scanners, an EPSON large bed scanner, Nikon slide scanner, HP large format scanner/plotter, Otari reel-to-reel and cassette digitization system, an Elmo 16mm film digitizer, and an 8mm film digitizer. Digitized materials are stored on three Dell servers, with backup copies stored onsite in a cold storage vault. The Virtual Vietnam Archive utilizes a relational database system (Cuadra Star) produced by Cuadra Associates.

Michael Ray Goode Collection

Institute of Museum and Library Services Primary funding for the Virtual Vietnam Archive has been provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. For more information about the people and organizations who have made the Virtual Vietnam Archive possible.

Digital copies of materials in the Virtual Archive are available. See our pricing list and guidelines for more information.

Chicago Symphony Bass Trombonist Charles Vernon highlights the Big XII Trombone Conference at Texas Tech

Charles Vernon, Bass Trombonist of the Chicago Symphony Orchestrawill be this year’s featured guest artist at the Big XII Area Trombone Conference, hosted by Texas Tech University in Lubbock. 

Charles Vernon began his orchestral career as bass trombonist with the Baltimore Symphony, starting in September 1971. In 1980 he went to the San Francisco Symphony for one season. He was then chosen by Riccardo Muti to play bass trombone with the Philadelphia Orchestra, where he played for five years until coming to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in 1986.

A native of Asheville, North Carolina, Vernon attended Brevard College and Georgia State University, where he studied with Bill Hill as well as Gail Wilson, professor of trombone at Arizona State University. His mentor/teachers were Arnold Jacobs and Edward Kleinhammer, both former tuba and bass trombone of the Chicago Symphony.

Vernon has been on the faculties of Catholic University, Brevard Music Center, Philadelphia College of Performing Arts, Roosevelt University, and the Curtis Institute and Northwestern University. Currently he is professor of trombone at DePaul University. Vernon has many solo and teaching appearances throughout the world.

In April 1991, with the CSO under Daniel Barenboim, he gave the world premiere of Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s Concerto for Bass Trombone, which was commissioned by the Orchestra for its centennial. In September 2006, he and the CSO premiered Chick’a’Bone Checkout, a new concerto for the alto, tenor and bass trombones and orchestra, written by trombonist and composer Christian Lindberg.

Vernon and his wife, Alison, have several commissioned song cycles for soprano, trombone and piano written by the American composer Eric Ewazen and performed for many European and U.S. audiences.

Information concerning music written or arranged for him as well as books, CDs and a DVD of the documentary film on the Lindberg/Vernon project and many other things, can be found at CharlieVernon.com.

As a part-time athlete, Vernon is an avid swimmer and a member of the Evanston Masters Swim Team. He comments, “As time passes, I realize that I must keep doing it, so that I can KEEP doing it!”

In addition to a concert featuring Mr. Vernon, there will be a special clinic conducted by the group and many outstanding trombone artists and professors from Big XII Universities and beyond.  The conference also features performances by faculty members, several top university trombone choirs, a jam session, and two nationally renowned solo competitions.  There will also be the opportunity to look over and purchase musical accessories provided by local and national vendors.

Free and open to the public

Join us for coffee and donuts as we examine the life of James Whistler 1834-1903.

One of the more renowned early American artists, James Whistler’s iconic “Mother” is one of the most recognized paintings in contemporary history. An international traveler, Whistler spent part of his youth in Russia and would create some of his best-known paintings while living in Europe. Known as much for his flamboyant personality as his paintings, Whistler cultivated a persona as an artist that helped him separate himself from his fellow artists. He also experimented with connections between music and painting with many of his works being symbolic of the harmonies one finds in music.

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

Tickets: 
Tickets are now on sale via www.itickets.com  all seats are reserved.  Adult tickets are $15 & $20; Children’s tickets, age 12 and under, are $10 & $15 (taxes and fees apply). The link for purchasing tickets can be found at: www.itickets.com

UNDIVIDED offers a unique look at unity and oneness by first showing individual uniqueness through a variety of dance genres.  It goes on to bring out the way personal pain can produce unfair judgements leading to broken relationships.  But, as our two main (opposing) characters learn, by choosing to more deeply investigate the other person’s story and appreciating what lies behind it, walls can come down and we can learn to live more authentically “undivided”.

Join Christ in the Arts for this year’s Winter Performance featuring more than 150 local dancers & partners of all ages, as they bring this uplifting and timely story to the stage blending beautiful music, dynamic lighting and effects, and their own unique kind of dramatic choreography. 

As always, this performance is appropriate for people of all ages.  For more information, visit www.ChristintheArts.org

When you think of the all-time greatest male artists in country music, there is no question three names pop up: Merle Haggard, George Strait and George Jones. These three singers have influenced the genre more than any other group of artists combined. Now, three regional performers have come together to pay tribute honoring these country music icons: Will Bannister, Danny Cadra – and introducing future star Hayden Spears – for his Cactus debut.  These three performers will be backed by the The Rhythm Machine with special guest Megan Poppe on fiddle and West Texas legend Steve Williams on electric and steel guitar.

This show will be offered on the following dates:  Sat. Jan 13; Sat. Feb 24; Sat. March 17.

Join us for coffee and donuts as we examine the life of John Singer Sargent.

John Singer Sargent 1856-1925

 

Continuing our investigation into early American artists, we look at the life of John Singer Sargent, considered one of the foremost portrait painters of his time.  Like Whistler, Sargent created some of his most memorable paintings abroad while staying in Europe. In addition, Sargent painted in the United States, using his portrait work to travel and record his journeys through his prolific use of watercolor. However it is through his portrait work that Sargent gained the most notoriety, painting individuals such as Theodore Roosevelt and other public figures of his day. 

Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.

The Songfellows Quartet is one of the longest active gospel quartets in the 100 plus years of this genre of music. The Songfellows Quartet actually began as Bob Jones and the Stamps Harmony Boys in 1946. This group has been active for over 70 years. Bob Jones Sr. was the founder and sang with the group until 2005 at the age of 93. Bob brought this style of music to California and the Western States. He was inducted into the Southern Gospel Music Hall of Fame for his six decades of great accomplishments. Bob Sr. was a pioneer in changing the style of this music from basic four part harmony written in the “convention songbooks” to featuring arrangements that were creative and dynamic. This style extended the normal range of singing high and low. Convention songbook arrangements were limited to what the average alto and bass singers could reach. Professional quartets extended those ranges and added dynamic phrasing to create an exciting and entertaining musical presentation. Bob Sr. is credited with influencing the musical styles of such groups as the Weatherford Quartet, the Imperials and the Cathedrals and many more.

While the quartet worked mainly in the Western States their radio and television appearances made the known to gospel music fans all over America. When they began to be featured at the National Quartet Convention in the early 1990’s the gospel music fans in the Eastern half of the country became enthusiastic supporters of the Songfellows.

Bob Jones Jr. joined the quartet as a teenager. First he was the baritone and later as the lead singer. Both Bob Sr. and Bob Jr. managed the group until Bob Sr. passed at age 93. His last performance was at 92 at his induction ceremony at Dollywood theme park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. In 2006 Bob Jr. moved the quartet from Los Angeles to Nashville. The members that moved with him initially moved back to the balmy west coast climate and were replaced by veteran singers. Nick Bruno and Gary Sheppard of the Kingsmen, Harold Gilley of Palmetto State, Randy Bird of the Blackwood Brothers, Ed Hill of the Prophets, Statesmen and Stamps, Rick Strickland of the Singing Americans, Kingdom Heirs, and Stamps Quartet and Mike Allen of the Gaither Homecoming videos all have served with the quartet.

Rick Strickland, Ed Hill, Mike Allen and Bob Jones Jr. now make up the group and they have been together for several years.

In 2009 the quartet’s record company started a television show called Brush Arbor Jubilee. The first year it was seen on twenty one local markets throughout the South. In 2010 the Rural Media Group (RFD-TV) launched a new network called Rural TV. The Brush Arbor Jubilee moved to the new network and expanded the show’s reach nationally. The next year the Rural Media Group acquired FamilyNet cable channel and Brush Arbor Jubilee and the Songfellows audience potential moved up to 45 million television households.

As the quartet moves into its seventh decade their mission remains the same as it was in 1954: we pray that God will continue to bless our ministry.
