Title: Winsor McCay -- A Tale of the Jungle Imps by Felix Fiddle

URL: http://cartoons.osu.edu/digital_albums/winsormccay/

Description: This website contains the digital album for Winsor McCay -- A Tale of the Jungle Imps by Felix Fiddle. Until January 2006 none of the original drawings created by McCay had been seen for more than a century. The Ohio State University Cartoon Research Library acquired five of the original hand-colored drawings which comprise this digital album. Unlike other extant examples of McCay's original comic strips, A Tale of the Jungle Imps by Felix Fiddle are hand-colored. Although the reason McCay painted them is unknown, it may be that since this was his first effort at a comic strip, he was unsure how engravers might follow his color instructions and wanted to be sure that his preferences were clear.

Her art was funny, heartwarming, inspirational, and a landmark in cartooning history.

Title: A. B. Walker's World

URL: https://cartoons.osu.edu/digital_exhibits/abwalker/

Description: Alanson Burton Walker was a very successful magazine cartoonist working at the beginning of the 20th century. His work was much in demand and he drew for all the important magazines of the time-Life, Harper's, Atlantic Monthly, Saturday Evening Post, Judge, and Collier's-where he created gentle, wry cartoons on issues of the day. Walker was born in Binghampton, New York on November 19, 1878, attended Buffalo Central High School, and later Rochester University from which he graduated in 1897. He spent the next four years taking classes at the Art Students League in New York, studying under Frank Vincent DuMond. His brother William H. Walker, also a cartoonist, became the chief editorial cartoonist for Life at the end of the 1890s. Both brothers lived and worked in Flushing, New York. Walker died of a heart attack while shoveling snow on January 22, 1947.

Title: Alternate Views: Perspectives on the American Civil War

URL: https://cartoons.osu.edu/digital_exhibits/alternateviews/

Description: The 150th anniversary on the American Civil War is commemorated in this exhibition, which highlights the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum’s growing collection of nineteenth century prints. Editorial cartoons were not published in newspapers until after the Civil War, when technology made it possible to publish them in a timely way economically. Prior to that, broadsheet prints -- etchings, engravings and lithographs -- were the means cartoonists used for political commentary. Popular magazines, such as Harper’s Weekly, relied on wood engravings to provide graphic content. The complexity of many of the works displayed here is striking. Intricate visual metaphors demand close reading in order to comprehend the meaning of the cartoon. These images were produced when the pace of life was much different. Prints such as these were intended to be read, reread, and then, perhaps, read again. When we step back in time to consider these images, their messages are clear, passions are heated, and a complex period in the history of the United States is revealed.

Title: Remembering the Act: Archival Reflections on Civil Rights

URL: https://library.osu.edu/innovation-projects/omeka/exhibits/show/civil-rights/

Description: The signing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by President Lyndon B. Johnson on July 2, 1964 marked the culmination of a decades long campaign to end racial inequality in the United States. Viewed as the most significant and far-reaching legislation ever passed through Congress, the bill banned discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Remembering the Act: Archival Reflections on Civil Rights celebrates the 50th anniversary of the law by recounting the political, historical, and cultural aspects of the struggle for civil rights through the lens of The Ohio State University Libraries Special Collections. A companion exhibit of the same title was in the Thompson Library Gallery from September 15, 2014 - January 4, 2015.

Title: The King James Bible Virtual Exhibit

URL: https://library.osu.edu/innovation-projects/omeka/exhibits/show/the-king-james-bible/

Description: The history of the Bible is a history of translation. Originally written in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, the first 1000 years of the Christian era saw the Holy Scriptures translated into a multitude of languages as the new faith extended its spiritual, cultural, and political influence across the Mediterranean region and Europe. By the 11th century, the “official” languages of the Bible had been established. Eastern Christendom, centered in Constantinople, initially relied upon Greek Scriptures, but eventually complemented these ancient versions with more modern translations rendered in the newly-invented Glagolitic and Cyrillic alphabets that made the Bible available in a number of Slavic vernaculars. Western Christendom, in contrast, settled on Latin as its only “authorized” language, paying little heed to the host of regional tongues developing across what had formerly been the Western Roman Empire. Although Scriptural lore was adapted to and transmitted in a variety of vernacular forms in the medieval West, including paraphrases of particular biblical books in verse and prose, short commentaries, dramatic works, devotional treatises, and visual art, Latin remained the unchallenged language for the text of the Bible itself. This situation, however, began to change in the closing years of the Middle Ages as developing vernacular idioms across western Europe began to challenge the linguistic authority of Latin as the only legitimate biblical language. While these challenges took root in the late-14th and 15th centuries, it was not until the onset of the Protestant Reformation in the early-16th century that they truly began to flower, resulting in the production of biblical translations on an unprecedented scale. England, in particular, was a hot-bed of Bible translation, witnessing no fewer than eight separate translation and revision efforts undertaken between 1525 and 1582, all culminating in the publication of the Authorized Version, better known as the King James Bible, in 1611. By the early-17th century there was no going back; the English Bible was here to stay. In this special exhibition commemorating the 400th anniversary of the printing of this most influential of all English books, the Rare Books & Manuscripts Library of The Ohio State University Libraries opens a window onto its own collections to shed light on the pre-history of the King James Bible and its profound influence and abiding impact on the broad spiritual, literary, and cultural landscape of the English-speaking world. We invite you to explore the materials on display and discover for yourselves the truth behind the King James Bible translators’ words, “Translation… openeth the window, to let in the light.”

Title: Literary Map of Africa - Ohio State University Libraries

URL: https://library.osu.edu/literary-map-of-africa/

Description: The Literary Map of Africa is a bio-bibliographical database, designed to be a comprehensive research and information tool on African literature. It does not focus on selected authors or national / regional litteratures, nor does it follow the sometimes rigid North & sub-Saharan Africa divide; instead, the database seeks to cover the whole continent. This wider scope makes it possible for writers from different regions and countries, with varied histories and cultures, and who produce works in diverse African and European languages to be represented in one project. One objective this project hopes to fulfill is to include as many emerging writers as possible, especially those based in Africa. Many in this category of creative writers do not have a readership beyond their national boundaries and are therefore hardly represented in many bibliographies and encyclopedias.

Title: Picturing history: Bela Petheo, Artist of The Rise of the West

URL: https://library.osu.edu/projects/bela-petheo/

Description: William McNeill's The Rise of the West is one of the most important books written on the subject of world history. When it was published in 1963, reviewers hailed the book for the new paradigm it advocated—that civilizations did not develop in isolation but grew as a result of contact with other civilizations and the exchange of ideas and techniques that resulted—and in 1964 McNeill was awarded the National Book Award. As part of the preparation of the book, McNeill commissioned the Hungarian-born artist Bela Petheo to design and draw a series of illustrations to accompany the text. McNeill and Petheo collaborated closely on the design of the illustrations, McNeill's active role in the visual design demonstrating the value he placed on these images. While McNeill's book has been long admired, Petheo’s images have been largely forgotten. Petheo’s illustrations convey historical information through word, symbol, gesture and spatial arrangement. Nearly every mark Petheo committed to paper, every gradation of shading, every arrangement of symbols and figures carries information, information necessary to establish the narrative structure of the whole. This 2008 digital exhibits shed new light on these illustrations.

Description: November 29, 2004 marked the 75th Anniversary of Richard E. Byrd's historical flight over the South Pole. This was the first time that flight over the Pole had been attempted, and up to this point in time, only two parties had ever reached the South Pole and only one survived the trip back. Nevertheless, Byrd was buoyed from his successes of the North Pole Flight in 1926 and his Transatlantic Flight in 1927. Antarctica was the next logical achievement. This was to be the largest and the costliest expedition in the history of the exploration of Antarctica to that time, with costs ultimately reaching more than 1 million dollars. This web exhibit documents that historic flight. NOTE: any issues with site navigation/missing graphics existed in the pre-Archive-It captured site.

Title: Elsie Janis Exhibition, The Ohio State University Libraries

Description: Throughout Ohio's history, the performing arts in many forms have enriched the lives of its citizens, and Ohioans have worked in the performing arts in numerous capacities.

Title: Jesse Owens a lasting legend

URL: https://library.osu.edu/projects/jesse-owens/

Description: “Jesse Owens a lasting legend” documents and celebrates Jesse Owens’ rise from Buckeye to a national hero. With his victories at the 1936 Berlin Summer Games, becoming the first person ever to win four gold medals at one time in Olympic track history, his fame was quickly established. These feats soon became legendary, however, because they were accomplished in front of Germany's Nazi dictator, Adolf Hitler, who was loudly proclaiming to the world the superiority of the Aryan race. Almost overnight, Owens, an African American who had grown up in Cleveland, Ohio and studied at The Ohio State University, became an international celebrity for putting a chink in Hitler's propaganda machine. Owens was only 22 when he became an Olympic hero, and he never again competed as an amateur athlete. He spent the rest of his life in a variety of ways: running several businesses, raising a family, promoting the Olympics, and volunteering his time as an advocate for children.

Title: The Magic of Antarctic Colours - Ohio State University Libraries

URL: https://library.osu.edu/projects/magic-of-antarctic-colors/

Description: A web exhibit depicting the artwork of David Abbey Paige, a successful New York City artist, who was intensely interested in the depiction of nature, having received several commissions to paint nature-based murals. He accompanied Admiral Richard E. Byrd on his second expedition to Antarctica, 1933-1935. Records indicate that Paige completed “100 pastels of various sizes; about 300 pencil drawings of aurura australis, and eight portraits in charcoal of the men as they appeared through the Winter Night, with their picturesque beards.” Eventually, Paige became a scenic artist for the motion picture industry in California. The acquisition of the Papers of Admiral Richard E. Byrd, by The Ohio State University in 1985, included 60 of the 100 pastel drawings that David Paige completed on Byrd’s second expedition to Antarctica.

Title: Popol Wuj online

URL: https://library.osu.edu/projects/popolwuj/

Description: This web exhibit presents an online edition of the facsimile of the “Popol Wuj” providing the Mayan peoples with access to the oldest surviving written version of their tzijs in a digital version available on the internet. This online edition seeks to confer recognition and respect to this manuscript which, even though it is written in a different form than that of the original pre-colonial records, is still one of the cornerstones for the development of new ideas, studies, and epistemological visions. This digital edition will allow native peoples and scholars to work directly with Father Ximénez’s manuscript, leading to debates about handwriting, spelling, and the polemics of the boundaries of meanings and interpretations. The web site is written in K’iche’, as well as in Spanish and English, as a way of amending a long tradition of negligence to Mayan and native peoples in general.

Title: A Walk in Our 'Shoe : the history of Ohio Stadium

URL: https://library.osu.edu/projects/stadium/

Description: This website pays tribute to the Ohio Stadium, seen alternately as a building no one thought OSU football games could fill and an engineering marvel comparable to the Coliseum of Rome. It has reflected the changing ambitions and enthusiasms of the Ohio State community and the nation at large. Completed in 1922, built in little over a year for a little more than $1 million, the Stadium was to unite students and fans in displays of wholesome athleticism. After countless renovations and repairs – including a student dorm, three generations of artificial grass, and five press boxes – the building has become a physical support for a contemporary media experience. Throughout its history, the Stadium has accommodated social, economic and technological change, and remains the spot where fans gather to show their devotion to OSU.

Title: Hendrik Willem van Loon: Illustrations from The Story of Mankind

URL: https://library.osu.edu/projects/vanloon/

Description: Although he is hardly remembered today, at one time in the early twentieth century Hendrik Willem van Loon (1882-1944) was an international celebrity. It is difficult to find parallels to him: he was at once an author who also illustrated his own books (as well as the works of others). He was an intellectual and an elitist who nevertheless wrote for children and the general public. A prolific writer, he was also a radio personality, whose larger-than-life persona would have thrived on television had he lived long enough to see it. A professor of history at Cornell and Antioch, van Loon is best known for his prodigious output of popular histories, many written for children. His The Story of Mankind was the first winner of the Newberry Medal in 1922. His books were praised by both educators and professional historians alike, however, other professors were loudly dismissive of van Loon, both for being a mere popularizer and for writing simplistic interpretations of the past.
