Furniture making is in many ways like bridge building, connections holding posts apart with spans to support a deck. Many architects have tried their hand at furniture design, Wright, Mies Van Der Rohe, Aalto, Saarinen, Le Corbusier, and Gerhy. We will review the history of furniture making in America with a visit to the Decorative Arts Collection at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and have Cambridge artist/craftsman Mitch Ryerson show us his work and talk about design process. Students will learn traditional woodworking techniques beginning with the use of hand tools, power tools and finally woodworking machines. Students will build a single piece of furniture of an original design that must support someone weighing 185 lbs. sitting on it 12 inches off the ground made primarily of wood. Students should expect to spend approximately 80 hours in the shop outside of class time. Preregistered architecture students will get first priority but first meeting attendance is mandatory. Twelve student maximum, no exceptions. (less)

An anti-religious satire attacking most of the major denominations of the nineteenth century, including Catholics, Episcopalians, Calvinists, Universalists, Methodists, Baptists, and Quakers. The artist parodies their respective religious beliefs and/or forms of intolerance. A chimera-like beast is shown, with seven heads, each representing one denomination. It also has wings, a forked fishtail, and the leg of a human. The various heads speak. Pope of Rome: "Heretical! Heterogeneal! Heterodox! I! am what I am!" Episcopalians: "Exterminate the Heretics!" Calvinists: "The Degree of Fate has fixed our Destinies." Universalists: "God will not punish us for what he does therefore we shall all be saved." Methodists: "Glory! We ha'nt got much larnin. Glory." Baptists: "I must be immersed or I shall be Damned." Friends or Quakers: We are Friends to all but the Heterodox." Below the title are lines from the Book of Revelation, "The Beast that was, and is not, and yet is."|Designed by A.M. Bouton.|Entered . . . 1835 by A.M. Bouton . . .

Social Qualities of Our Candidate

Social Qualities of Our Candidate

Reports of his alcoholism haunted Democratic candidate Franklin Pierce during the 1852 campaign. The matter is taken up here with mocking reference to the Maine Liquor Law of 1851, a landmark prohibition measure first passed in Maine and subsequently adopted in several other states. An obviously inebriated Pierce leans against a large tree at right, holding a bottle out toward a man who passes on horseback. The man holds a document "Maine Liquor Law" and carries a barrel of "Hard Cider" on his saddle. He wears a wide-brimmed hat and a drab outfit, indicating that he is a Quaker, among the chief supporters of the temperance movement. Quaker: "Friend that tree looks as if it was old enough to stand alone--Thee need n't hold it up any longer." Pierce: "You have the advantage of me, stranger.--My name is Frank Pierce & I'll stand as long as this tree will stand by me! I'm granite all over! give us your hand--Will you take a horn? I'll give you a toast--Here's confusion to all Maine Liquor Laws. An owl perched on a branch of the tree hoots twice. The Quaker's barrel of "Hard Cider" has a double meaning: it alludes to an earlier (and successful) Whig presidential candidate, William Henry Harrison, and casts doubt on the Quaker's temperance commitment.|Pubd. by John Childs, 84 Nassau St. N.
