Tobacco merchant : the story of Universal Leaf Tobacco Company by Maurice Duke( )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in English and held by 1,362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Universal Leaf Tobacco Company, the world's largest independent leaf tobacco dealer, is one of the major buying arms for tobacco manufacturers worldwide. Its business is selecting, purchasing, processing, and storing leaf tobacco." "Maurice Duke and Daniel P. Jordan vividly describe the colorful life and times of one of the South's - and America'smost important businesses and provide insight into how luck, management practices, and personalities helped the company rise to international prominence." "The story opens during the aftermath of the Civil War when Southerners realized once again the worldwide potential of their native crop. The authors follow the company from its incorporation in 1918 through one of the first hostile takeover attempts in American business to its evolution in 1993 into Universal Corporation, a worldwide conglomerate with a number of products including tobacco. This objective saga reveals much about American business and economic history."--Jacket

Oral history interview with Virginius Dabney, June 10-13, 1975 : interview A-0311-1, Southern Oral History Program Collection (#4007) by Virginius Dabney( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a two-part series examining the life and career of Virginius Dabney. In this first part of the series, Dabney describes his family background as one of Virginia's first families. His father's professorship at the University of Virginia put Dabney into contact with well-known intellectuals and politicians, including Woodrow Wilson and Edwin Alderman. He recalls the layout of rural Charlottesville, Virginia, before the technological and automotive boom. Dabney's relatively cloistered childhood was largely devoted to education: he learned several languages and was diligent in his other studies, also. His erudition aided his lifelong career as a journalist. Dabney recounts his early experiences as a reporter for the Richmond News Leader, where he covered state and national politics throughout the 1920s, including the virulent pro-prohibition campaign for Bishop James Cannon. Influenced by H.L. Mencken, his writing captured the attention of Richmond Times-Dispatch managing editor, Allen Cleaton, and he later became the editor of the newspaper. In 1934, Dabney traveled to Germany on an Oberlaender Trust fellowship in order to observe the political changes developing there. Much of the interview focuses on his editorial stance as a southern liberal (among other things, Dabney describes the shifts in the perception of southern liberalism over time). Dabney contends that an editor's job is to interpret political and social events rather than merely report on them. His early involvement with racial issues in the 1930s and 1940s led to his role with the Southern Regional Council in 1944. The majority of the interview is spent evaluating the political leadership of Senator Harry F. Byrd Sr. Dabney compares Byrd's limited government ideology with the expanded federal bureaucracy under President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal policies. Dabney argues that Byrd's stronghold over state politics resulted from restricting the vote to his select voters; however, the aftermath of the civil rights movement expanded the franchise and signaled the end to Byrd's political machine by the mid-1960s
Oral history interview with Virginius Dabney, July 31, 1975 : interview A-0311-2, Southern Oral History Program Collection (#4007) by Virginius Dabney( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virginius Dabney chronicles his long career as a southern journalist from the 1920s to the 1970s. As the editor of the Richmond, Virginia, Times Dispatch, Dabney penned several articles about the social and political crises of the twentieth century, often with a decidedly regional outlook. He wrote a few books concerning southern liberalism and the regional culture of Virginians. These works earned him an invitation as a guest lecturer at Cambridge and Princeton in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Though Dabney discusses his career as a novelist and lecturer, the primary focus of the interview is on his opinions on race relations in post-1954 Virginia. While many Virginia politicians crafted ways to massively resist integrating public schools, he supported gradual public school desegregation. Dabney expresses his criticism of politicians--particularly Senator Harry Byrd Sr. and Jack Kilpatrick--who chose to close public schools rather than integrate them. To Dabney, school closings culminated in backward thinking and fewer economic opportunities for the state. Even though his opinions about massive resistance emerged in his editorials, the Times Dispatch owners prevented him from a full expression of his ideas. Dabney further discusses the relationship between newspaper owners. He also recounts his connection to Virginia's aristocracy and his relational ties to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Steeped in this background, Dabney reacts adversely to criticism of the nation's founders. He disapproved of Gore Vidal's and Fawn Brodie's work on Aaron Burr and Thomas Jefferson, respectively. Of particular interest is Dabney's vociferous objection to historian Fawn Brodie's account of a romantic relationship between Sally Hemmings and Thomas Jefferson

The worlds of Thomas Jefferson at Monticello by Susan Stein( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Worlds of Thomas Jefferson assembles more than 150 of the objects Jefferson acquired - the first time they have been seen together since the contents of Monticello were dispersed at his death. This astonishing collection reveals the limitless range of his curiosity and the acuteness of his taste, portraying not only Jefferson the statesman but also Jefferson the architect, amateur scientist, connoisseur, farmer, and historian. The articles pictured and described range from priceless historical treasures, such as the lap desk on which the Declaration of Independence was composed, to the personal and homely, such as the wrist strap and dumbbell Jefferson was obliged to use after an injury; from precious objects of art, such as Gilbert Stuart's portraits of Jefferson, to the shards of porcelain found in excavations at Monticello; from the finely worked silver tumblers known as the "Wythe-Jefferson Cups" to the Mandan buffalo robe that was part of his collection of Native American artifacts; from the great Entrance Hall clock he designed for Monticello to the silk damask-upholstered chairs he purchased in Paris. In all, it is a collection that mirrors both the mind of America's greatest statesman and the tastes and styles of the time in history when the American people secured their own independence and offered the world an example of a free people in a democratic state. The Worlds of Thomas Jefferson is written by Susan R. Stein, curator of Monticello, who provides an introduction placing Jefferson's acquisitions within the context of his political career, family life, and intellectual pursuits. In the catalogue each object is described individually with details about its history as well as its importance to Jefferson"--Amazon
