Content Roundup – First Week – August 2013

White Dandy

This week brings us a host on new historic popular newspaper issues from a number of rare papers to read. As you are pool or beach side, ponder life from the horse’s point of view in: “White Dandy” the Companion to Black Beauty; or, consider the tale of “Marmaduke, the mustanger”… and no horsing around poolside! Meanwhile progress continues apace in bringing the historic University theses to the internet. A number of early historic Villanova catalogs have also been added this week: read about the early required classes and awards given to students.. mention in the catalog was once included for the greatest improvement in Penmanship over the prior year, so while the summer recess continues remember to sharpen your quills and practice your loops and flourishes.
