Clark Aided Blacks on 'Bandstand'? Not Always - The Root

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
Shirelles; Motown artists such as Mary Wells and Smokey Robinson and the Miracles; and R&B and soul pioneers such as James Brown and the Famous Flames, Marvin Gaye and Aretha Franklin. Clark brought African-American performers to national television in an era when such performances were rare. American Bandstand also helped invent the demographic that still dominates popular culture: teenagers. It was the first national television program aimed squarely at teens, and it laid the groundwork for the baby boom generation, defining what teens listened to, how they danced and what they wore, ate and drank. Clark was well aware that advertisers were eager to reach teenagers, and his show offered daily access to young consumers. "It's been a long, long time since a major network has aimed at the most entertainment-starved group in the country," Clark told Newsweek in 1957. "And why not? After all, teenagers have $9 billion a year to spend." ...

Sanford McDonnell, Aerospace Leader, Dies at 89

Thu, Mar 22, 2012
Mr. McDonnell was known for his attention to ethics and devotion to the Boy Scouts creed. He served as national president of the Boy Scouts of America in the 1980s. He was fond of quoting Benjamin Franklin, Isaac Newton and George Washington from memory and was meticulous about accounting for even the smallest use of company resources, like a postage stamp, for his personal business. After he retired in 1988 he founded Characterplus, a St. Louis-based organization that has helped 77 school districts integrate ethics into their curriculums and that says its efforts have improved academic performance and decreased disciplinary actions. He also helped organize the Character Education Partnership in Washington, which works to develop moral character in young people. Besides his wife and son, Mr. McDonnell is survived by a daughter, Robbin McDonnell MacVittie, and one grandchild. (New York Times)

Ken Price, Sculptor Who Helped Elevate Ceramics, Dies at 77

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
Los Angeles cool, a succession of unusually loyal art galleries kept his work in sight with frequent shows, especially the James Corcoran Gallery and L.A. Louver in Los Angeles and the Willard, Franklin Parrasch and Matthew Marks galleries in New York. If small, his works were still bold in every other way: color, internal scale, visceral effect and associative richness. Even their smallness exuded a nervy, David-against-Goliath confidence. Mr. Price liked to quote the artist Joseph Cornell, whose small boxed assemblages he admired: “Tiny is the last refuge of the enormous.” Mr. Price first became known in the early 1960s for his so-called Eggs, intensely colored ovoids punctuated with small openings from which slimy-looking forms might protrude, suggesting fingers, phalluses, worms or perhaps entrails. At once beautiful and disturbing, abstract and overly specific, these objects were sometimes presented on pedestals that placed them, rather imperiously, at eye level, calling attention to their every shift in color, texture and shape, inside and out. His subsequent efforts were stylistically diverse, but he rarely strayed far from the tensions he had achieved in his Eggs, between dazzling exteriors and mysterious interiors, foreshadowed by openings that could appear either soft and vaguely sexual or severely geometric, with the implied monumentality of the entrance to a Mayan temple. As Mr. Price’s work evolved, he managed to synthesize, in series of works, from just about every 20th-century art style and several corners of popular culture, especially Surrealism but also Russian Constructivism, Japanese prints and Mexican tourist wares. The sculptures of Constantin Brancusi were particularly influential. Other inspirations included natural crystals, the jagged forms of the American Southwest and the coastline of Massachusetts, where he lived during the 1980s. (New York Times)

From slave to business owner: William Quincy Atwood - Ledger Independent

Wed, Feb 22, 2012
Alabama court reports. The courts appointed two attorneys, but Calvin C. Sellers died soon after, then leaving Franklin R. Beck, an attorney, as sole administrator. It was Beck who stayed with the case throughout the court battle, until the Civil War began, according to several reports. The case began with the Chancery Court of Wilcox County, Ala., that voided the trusts saying masters could not create trusts for slaves who were still in Alabama and declared they could not be emancipated according to state law. But that court gave the money to two children already living in Ohio. (Henry Atwood took two of his older children to Aberdeen, Ohio, so they would be free sometime before 1851.) Since they were free they could inherit money, according to what was then called the 'Common Law' of Alabama, which was taken from Roman law, according to manuscripts. Also according to Alabama laws at that time, masters had no common law right to emancipate slaves because the common law had not recognized slavery. If slaves could not be freed directly by the owner, why should the law allow them to be freed by a trust,  according to information from Auburn University Archives. But Beck argued, that owners had absolute control over their property, because slave owners could take slaves to free states to free them. Furthermore, this power could be transmitted to an executor of a will, according to Auburn University Archives. Both parties appealed the decision until the case was reviewed by the Alabama Supreme Court. Finally, the state supreme court justices left the decision to Beck. The justices wrote there is no valid objection to the validity of the trusts but no mode had been provided for the enforcement of carrying out Henry Atwood's wishes. So it became the responsibility of the person carrying out the will, according to the Alabama Supreme Court Records --Atwood's Heirs vs. Beck. "...He (executor) must be left to his own conscience, and to the obligation imposed by this official oath, yet, as we have seen that the trusts are not illegal, and the removal may lawfully be made by the representative of the deceased, it is clear the court will not interfere to prevent the trustee from complying with and carrying out the lawful desire of the testator (deceased father)," according to Atwood's Heirs vs. Beck. While the court battle went on for years, the children and their mothers were taken to Ohio by someone because they arrived in Ripley, May 15, 1853. There were no accounts found how this happened but at least some of their father's wishes were carried out, despite opposition by his sister's family and the laws of Alabama. William and his brothers went to a black school in Ripley. Then in 1856, William went to Iberia College, Iberia, Ohio, until spring of 1859. In the 1860 Ohio census: J.M. Atwood, 24, Williams Atwood, 22, John Atwood, 21, and D.W. Atwood, each have a real estate value of $15,700 and a personal value of $2,000. All of the young men were Henr...
