David J. Brewer : the life of a Supreme Court justice, 1837-1910 by Michael J Brodhead( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many of Brewer's judicial opinions and nonjudicial utterances created controversy, particularly when he confronted the reform issues of his day. The court presided over by Chief Justice Melville W. Fuller has been seen as reactionary, determined to infuse the law with social Darwinism and laissez-faire ideology. Further, the Fuller Court has been accused of hindering all legislation that might have improved the economic and social condition of the American masses. Yet, contrary to these usual assessments of the Fuller Court as a whole, Brewer accepted most of his generation's reform goals. He championed many forms of social legislation, the regulation of business, the rights of women and minorities, educational reform, and world peace
A naturalist in Indian territory : the journals of S.W. Woodhouse, 1849-50 by S. W Woodhouse( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the United States began to look westward after the Louisiana Purchase, its official government exploring parties increasingly included scientists who were sent to study the natural history of the new lands. In the spring of 1849, young Philadelphia physician S. W. Woodhouse, an avid ornithologist, became one of these fortunate pioneering scientists when he was appointed surgeon-naturalist of two expeditions to survey the Creek-Cherokee boundary in Indian Territory. Woodhouse served on both expeditions of the survey, the first in 1849 under Capt. Lorenzo Sitgreaves and the second under Lt. Israel Carle Woodruff in 1850." "Throughout the expeditions, Woodhouse, a keen observer of frontier life and society, wrote down his impressions of the places he passed, as well as offering his physician's-eye view of the lives of ordinary people. His three diaries are also a valuable record of early Indian Territory personalities such as the McIntoshes and the Perrymans of the Creek Indians; Elijah Hicks of the Cherokees; Tallee and Clermont III of the Osages; and Oh-ha-wah-kee of the Comanches." "The journals also contain a rare early view of Oklahoma wildlife: the swallow-tailed kite and the ivory-billed woodpecker in the dense forests along the Grand, Verdigris, and Arkansas rivers, and elk, bison, and the common raven on the wide western plains. Woodhouse's journals and the detailed reports of his work in Indian Territory resulted in the discovery of fifteen new forms of animals, including one freshwater mussel, seven beetles, five snakes, one bird, and one mammal." "This presentation of the long-over-looked Indian Territory journals, along with a detailed introduction and clarifying notes, reveals Woodhouse as a more important early government naturalist than has previously been recognized. A Naturalist in Indian Territory will be particularly valuable to historians of Indian Territory and to biologists of this region."--BOOK JACKET
