Williams-Chesnut-Manning family papers by Chesnut (Family :( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Three letters, 1847-1848, from the Governor's wife, Elizabeth Peyre Richardson Manning (whose relation as niece, sister, wife, mother, aunt and grandmother, to six South Carolina governors was featured in Ripley's Believe It or Not) are to her son, John Laurence, and his future wife, Sally Bland Clarke of Virginia. Manning's correspondents during the Civil War years (William Henry Trescot, Generals Joseph E. Johnston and William Preston (of Ky.), John LeConte, Edward McCrady, Jr. and Sr., John J. McRae, James Simons, William Porcher Miles, Edward Boykin and Franklin J. Moses, Sr.) disclose or discuss the problems of refugees, opposition to the S.C. Executive Council, Manning's second gubernatorial candidacy, production of saltpeter for gunpowder, turpentine and other "medicinal" liquors, military operations in Charleston Harbor, opposition to Jefferson Davis, scarcity and exchange of food and other provisions, supplies of corn for troops in North Carolina and Virginia, operation of the Wilmington and Manchester Railroad and the military career of Manning's son, Richard

Calendar of the Chesnut family papers, 1782-1896, consisting primarily of correspondence of: James Chesnut, Jr. (1815-1885), a prominent secessionist and member of the South Carolina legislature and later an aide to General Beauregard; his father-in-law, Stephen Decatur Miller (1787-1838); and a contemporary, John Lawrence Manning (1816-1889), governor from 1852 to 1854

Chesnut family papers( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Papers of three prominent South Carolinians of the antebellum period, James Chesnut, Jr. (1815-1885), a prominent secessionist and member of the South Carolina legislature and later an aide to General Beauregard; his father-in-law, Stephen Decatur Miller (1787-1838); and a contemporary, John Lawrence Manning (1816-1889), governor from 1852 to 1854. The collection consists primarily of correspondence related to personal affairs and to social and economic conditions on South Carolina plantations, rather than to politics. Miller served as governor and U.S. Senator between 1820 and 1833, and some of the correspondence relates to the issue of nullification. Also present are several photographs and a genealogy

Large-Scale User Facility Imaging and Scattering Techniques to Facilitate Basic Medical Research by Stephen Decatur Miller( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Conceptually, modern medical imaging can be traced back to the late 1960's and into the early 1970's with the advent of computed tomography . This pioneering work was done by 1979 Nobel Prize winners Godfrey Hounsfield and Allan McLeod Cormack which evolved into the first prototype Computed Tomography (CT) scanner in 1971 and became commercially available in 1972. Unique to the CT scanner was the ability to utilize X-ray projections taken at regular angular increments from which reconstructed three-dimensional (3D) images could be produced. It is interesting to note that the mathematics to realize tomographic images was developed in 1917 by the Austrian mathematician Johann Radon who produced the mathematical relationships to derive 3D images from projections - known today as the Radon Transform . The confluence of newly advancing technologies, particularly in the areas of detectors, X-ray tubes, and computers combined with the earlier derived mathematical concepts ushered in a new era in diagnostic medicine via medical imaging (Beckmann, 2006). Occurring separately but at a similar time as the development of the CT scanner were efforts at the national level within the United States to produce user facilities to support scientific discovery based upon experimentation. Basic Energy Sciences within the United States Department of Energy currently supports 9 major user facilities along with 5 nanoscale science research centers dedicated to measurement sciences and experimental techniques supporting a very broad range of scientific disciplines. Tracing back the active user facilities, the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) a SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory was built in 1974 and it was realized that its intense x-ray beam could be used to study protein molecular structure. The National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS) at Brookhaven National Laboratory was commissioned in 1982 and currently has 60 x-ray beamlines optimized for a number of different measurement techniques including imaging and tomography. The next generation NSLS-II facility is now under construction. The Advanced Light Source (ALS) commissioned in 1993 has one of the world's brightest sources of coherent long wavelength x-rays suitable for probing biological samples in 3D. The Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory also has a number of x-ray beamlines dedicated to imaging and tomography suitable for biological and medical imaging research. The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) also has a number of beamlines suitable for studying the structure and dynamics of proteins and other biological systems. A neutron imaging and tomography beamline is currently being planned for SNS. Similarly, the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) also at ORNL has beamlines suitable for examining biological matter and has an operational imaging beamline. In addition, the production of medical isotopes is another important HFIR function. These user facilities have been intended to facilitate basic and applied research and were not explicitly designed with the intention to scan patients the same way a commercial medical imaging scanner does. Oftentimes the beam power is significantly more powerful than those produced by medical scanners. Thus the ionizing radiation effects of these beams must be considered when contemplating how these facilities can contribute to medical research. Suitable research areas involving user facilities include the study of proteins, human and animal tissue sample scanning, and in some cases, the study of non-human vertebrate animals such as various rodent species. The process for scanning biological and animal specimens must be approved by the facility biosafety review board. The national laboratories provide a number of imaging and scattering instruments which can be used to facilitate basic medical research. These resources are available competitively via the scientific peer review process for proposals submitted through the user programs operated by each facility. Imaging human and animal tissue occurs but is not routine in most places, and strict procedures must be followed to do so. However research communities are burgeoning in a number of biomedical areas, and protein crystallography research is well rooted in the X-ray and neutron scattering communities. Novel here is the forward looking work on neutron imaging with potential medical and biomedical applications. Thus the national laboratories provide a research environment with capabilities and a culture conducive to exploring new methods and techniques suitable for exploring new frontiers in medical and biomedical imaging
