P.S.I love you the story of the singing Hilltoppers by Carlton Jackson ( )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1953, the same year that Elvis Presley cut his first demo, Cash Box magazine named the Hilltoppers the top vocal group of the year. Hits such as "Trying" and "P.S. I Love You" raced up the charts and kept the band in Billboard's Top 40. On weekends the Hilltoppers performed in cities across the country, but on school days they were better known as Western Kentucky State College students Jimmy Sacca, Seymour Spiegelman, Don McGuire, and Billy Vaughn. The Korean War, military drafts, and changing public tastes in music, however, cut short singing careers that should have lasted much longer. S

Child of the sit-downs : the revolutionary life of Genora Dollinger by Carlton Jackson ( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
ForeWord -- Magazine 2008 Silver Award Winner for Excellence in Biography! A biography of a prominent labor reformer and early feminist. Strikes affect entire communities, and in the end they need the communities' support to succeed. This was exemplified in the legendary 1937 sit-down strike in Flint, Michigan, when strikers occupied the GM plants. The striking workers needed food; they also needed information and advance warning on what management might be up to. The Women's Emergency Brigade, formed during the Flint strike, proved indispensable to the union effort more than once. Genora Johnson Dollinger helped create the Women's Emergency Brigade and became one of the strike's leaders. She and her followers waded into the fray against the Flint police, the Pinkertons, and local officials sympathetic to GM, helping to achieve victory for the United Auto Workers and generating the first contract ever signed between GM and the UAW. Genora Dollinger became a steward at various plants in Detroit, where she moved after being blacklisted in Flint. She and her second husband, Sol Dollinger, were brutally beaten in their home, apparently because of their union support, though nothing was ever definitively proven. From the 1960s on, Genora Dollinger worked closely with the NAACP, ACLU, and the women's movement, becoming a link between the labor movement of the late twentieth century and the feminist movement. This biography of one of the first female labor activists is an important addition to the history of twentieth-century reform movements. This book will also be available in the following formats: e-book, audio book, and large-print paperback. Visit www.caravanbooks.org for details

Befriending : the American Samaritans by Monica Dickens ( Book )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book relates the founding in America, and effectiveness of, a branch of the worldwide organization of volunteers known as the Samaritans, committed to the prevention of suicide through the simple means of "listening therapy." It is a description of the successful humanitarian efforts of "nonprofessional" volunteers by best-selling author Monica Dickens, herself a Samaritan. Monica Dickens, great-granddaughter of Charles Dickens, was known in England as a novelist; in America, as the founder of the U.S. Samaritans. Today Samaritans are in every large city of the country, some even with multiple branches. Volunteers work 24 hours a day, answering telephones or meeting troubled people, to try to give them, in nonjudgmental ways, the help they need to get their lives back in order. When Monica Dickens formed the Boston chapter, there were doubters. Psychiatrists, psychologists, and governmental bureaucrats, all said there was no chance that a Samaritan branch would work in that city. They did not realize the depth of Dickensian resolve. She meant to have a Samaritan branch in Boston, and later in Cape Cod. And, in the best traditions of her great-grandfather, so she did. Her story of the American Samaritans should be of interest to anyone who has ever pondered the human condition
