Born into slavery on a Louisiana plantation, John Roy Lynch (1847-1939) came to adulthood during the Reconstruction Era and lived a public-spirited life for over three decades. His political career began in 1869 with his appointment as justice of the peace. Within the year, he was elected to the Mississippi legislature and was later elected Speaker of the House. At age twenty-five, Lynch became the first African American from Mississippi to be elected to the United States Congress. He led the fight to secure passage of the Civil Rights Bill of 1875. In 1884, he was elected temporary chairman of the Eighth Republican National Convention and was the first black American to deliver the keynote address. His autobiography, "Reminiscences of an Active Life", reflects Lynch's thoughtful and nuanced understanding of the past and of his own experience. The book, written when he was ninety, challenges a number of traditional arguments about Reconstruction. In his experience, African Americans in the South competed on an equal basis with whites; the state governments were responsive to the needs of the people; and race was not always a decisive factor in the politics of Reconstruction. The autobiography, which would not be published until 1970, provides rich material for the study of American politics and race relations during Reconstruction. It sheds light on presidential patronage, congressional deals, and personality conflicts among national political figures. Lynch's childhood reflections reveal new dimensions to our understanding of black experience during slavery and beyond. An introduction by John Hope Franklin puts Lynch's public and private lives in the context of his times and provides an overview of how "Reminiscences of an Active Life" came to be written

A clinical case study on the borderline adolescent by John Roy Lynch( )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This report has a two-fold purpose. In part I, the writer offers a detailed review of the literature on the borderline condition in children and adolescents. This literature review is comprised of two chapters. Chapter I concentrates on the history of the borderline syndrome from an assessment perspective. Chapter II will focus on intervention and treatment for the borderline adolescent. Part II of this report presents clinical material from the writer's internship experience. My interest in the borderline syndrome developed from clinical experiences in which I treated several adolescents who were considered borderlines. My experience, as well as a review of the literature, suggests that borderline is a syndrome of varied conditions which are manifested or distributed along a continuum. The clinical material from four adolescent borderline patients with whom I worked during my internship is illustrative of the range of this condition. This portion of the report will conclude with a chapter in which I summarize some major points I have learned from clinical experience with borderline adolescent patients as well as from my research on the borderline syndrome in the Appendixes, the writer presents diagnostic Evaluations (complete psychological testing protocols) of two adolescent borderlines whom he tested during his internship year

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The collection reveals a great deal about politics in Maine and politics on the national level from 1868 to 1883. Topics include a Hannibal Hamlin and Jame G. Blaine. Comments about these men and a number of other Maine politicians appear in the letters to Gifford, particularly from Eugene Hale, John Lynch, and William P. Whitehouse, during political campaigns in that state. Letters both praised and criticized Gifford for his public oppositions. Two letters from Lucy Stone reveal Gifford's support of women's suffrage. Three letters have lithographs of Colby University. Glimpses of the demands of life in the U.S. Consular Service are given in some letters. Also included is an anonymous essay entitled "A New Currency."
