Richard Avedon : darkness and light by Helen Whitney( Visual )

6 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in New York in 1923, Richard Avedon dropped out of high school and joined the Merchant Marine's photographic section. Returning in 1944, he found a job as a photographer in a department store, was 'discovered' and began working for Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, Look, and other magazines. Although making his living in advertising, his real passion was portraiture. Avedon's portraits are well lit, minimalist, and free, resulting in images of intimate spontaneity, formal yet informal, with a sense of timeless authority about them. In 1992 he became the first staff photographer for The New Yorker, and in 1994 the Whitney Museum mounted a fifty year retrospective of his work, "Richard Avedon: Evidence 1944-1994." After a full life, rich in accolades and acclaim, Avedon died on October 1, 2004

Ulysses S. Grant : warrior, president( Visual )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This biography of Ulysses S. Grant paints a nuanced portrait of one of America's most paradoxical leaders. The greatest hero of the Civil War, Grant was a brilliant military strategist who rose from obscurity to a rank held previously only by George Washington. However, the strength of the Confederate resistance forced Grant into a hard war that destroyed the South and led to his being labeled "a butcher." Propelled into the White House by his battlefield success, Grant lacked the political skills to deal with the issues of the era: reconstructing the South and managing the nation's rapidly expanding economy. His two terms were rocked by bitter racial conflict and corruption scandals. Seven years after leaving office, Grant was financially ruined by the collapse of an investment house in which he had placed his assets. He spent his final days in a race against time as he battled cancer while finishing his epic war memoirs

Ulysses S. Grant( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the immediate post-war years, racial rioting became commonplace. President Andrew Johnson fanned the flames with his racist rhetoric and pardons for former Confederates, leading to his impeachment. Grant's feelings about the former slaves changed during this time: he now believed that American freedoms be extended to African Americans as well. He responded to calls to run for president and was easily elected. The country was struggling with Reconstruction, the Industrial Revolution, and forming a workable Indian policy. Grant mistakenly trusted people who brought scandal and failure to his presidency. After leaving office, Grant's financial fortunes rose and then fell. Grant spent his last days suffering from throat cancer and writing his memoirs, which restored his family's finances after his death
