John D. Clifford's Indian antiquities by John D Clifford( Book )

4 editions published between 1970 and 2000 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book collects Clifford's printed letters, along with manuscript surveys and maps made by Rafinesque, a prominent naturalist of the time. Clifford's theorizing was buttressed by Rafinesque's empirical identification of prehistoric sites both in Kentucky and elsewhere. Also included are documents illuminating a dispute between Rafinesque and Atwater that erupted after Clifford's death. Rafinesque's contribution has also been neglected because it was pillaged by another well-known scholar, E.G. Squier, who gave no credit to his source."--Jacket
Profiles of Rafinesque( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here are twenty essays, forty-six illustrations, and a summation of 160 years of Rafinesque scholarship, which together reveal a multifaceted individual. Boewe dispels certain myths about Rafinesque's life and work, but does not fail to include the variety of viewpoints that concern his subject. The issue of Rafinesque's mental state, the circumstances of his birth and death, and the validity of his scientific work - on these topics Boewe and the other contributors provide a well-rounded picture of an intriguing nineteenth-century American naturalist."--BOOK JACKET

A C.S. Rafinesque anthology by C. S Rafinesque( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Among American naturalists, C.S. Rafinesque (1783-1840) is second only to Audubon in the popular interest. This interest is due in part to his life and personality, but he is also remembered for devising Latin scientific names for more plants than any other naturalist who ever lived. This passion for nomenclature has kept his name among naturalists."--Provided by publisher

The town on the square : portrait of a vanished world by Charles E Boewe( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this memoir the author profiles the Middle Western market town of his youth that, despite the rigors of the Great Depression, afforded a quality of life since vanished. Most small-town enterprises got spun off there to larger municipalities as an unintended consequence of post-Depression economic recovery. Since similar events occurred elsewhere, this detailed sketch of West Salem, Illinois, has relevance to many small towns in the region stretching from Wichita to Wheeling, from Minneapolis to Memphis. Ever in the interest of greater efficiency and economy of scale, the same centrifugal forces irrevocably altered village life in Middle America - not always for the better
