    Donation Of Vintage Maps And Guides

    Dave, I think your aside is the most interesting part of this question. You want Anthropological study, rather than the aforementioned Engineering Department. I for one, enjoy the Library of Congress' collection of hand-drawn Panoramic maps. But that's me. I often Google the text ... "library.edu" ... then after a few days, I come up for air with a big grin on my face and a few extra creases in the old gray matter. Good times! ... Perhaps you want to try "maps library edu" and then contact your favorites from those results? "This might seem, to the uninitiated, a close approximation to work." ... Chris

    Dirty Jobs

    Hi Dave, The marker lights should be CFL's or LED's these days. Not that giant fish-bowl! Mike used a big paint brush when he had to climb down through a series of man-holes to paint the inside and very bottom of one of the towers .... guess what color! Tough gig!

    “the Food Of A Younger Land,”

    Here's a story from the lost WPA files, that mixes two of my favorite things – Anthropology and food, … another choice interview by WHYY's Radio Times' Marty Moss-Coane. Thursday 5/14/2009 – Hour Two Author MARK KURLANSKY takes us back to the days before we relied on a highway system, chain restaurants and refrigeration to get and prepare our food. His new book "The Food of a Younger Land," relies on writings from the Federal Writer's Project of the 1930's to describe the nation's food when it was seasonal, regional and traditional.
