The Western Mail
Welsh told to forget the Alamo
May 4 2004
Colin Hughes, The Western Mail
A WELSH flag has been unnecessarily flying above the Alamo for 70
years in the mistaken belief that one of its defenders was Welsh.
But research has shown that Lewis Johnson, who was believed to be
from Wales, was actually from Virginia, US.

Photo partners documented
history
Juneau was fortunate to have resident
photographers like Winter and Pond
By Ann Chandonnet
for the juneau empire
Many American towns of a few thousand residents have
little by way of photographic record. However, Juneau
fortunate that its early years were documented
extensively not only by tourists, prospectors,
mountaineers and ethnographers passing through -
usually during summer months only - but also by
resident photographers, both amateur and professional.

Three bank inventories of possessions of architect Addison Mizner salvaged from
Dumpster.

by the Atlantic National Bank in the 1930s and retrieved from a Dumpster several years
ago.
The historic inventories have recently been acquired by the Preservation Foundation of

backtracks on
Juneteenth honor for
Nace
By STEVE KRASKE The Kansas City Star
Last month Kansas City Councilwoman Becky Nace was told she would be the first white person to be
honored as Ms. Juneteenth.
Then a few days later came an about-face. The Black Archives of Mid-America, which sponsors the annual
Juneteenth festival, notified Nace she wouldn't receive the honor after all.

County history, by minutes
A book recording the years 1777 to 1782
was found accidentally in Washington.
By Nancy Petersen Inquirer Staff Writer
Caleb Pierce was in a real jam.
He was the tax collector for Thornbury
Township, but the taxes that he was
charged with collecting were for a war that
the practicing Quaker didn't support.
While the Revolutionary War raged around
him, Pierce stood by his principles and
refused to collect the taxes.

Democratic Underground
Taking Secrecy One Step Too Far
May 5, 2004
By Tab Julius
A quiet yet disturbing event happened recently in Washington. It has received precious little coverage,
mainly a short report by NPR on Weekend Edition and an article by the Associated Press.
It may be that compared to all the horrific fighting in Iraq, prisoner treatment scandals, kidnappings
and more, news about a newly appointed National Archivist seems boring by comparison. Even on a
quiet news day, it might be seemingly too mundane to put anywhere near the front page. Most people
don't know what a national archivist is, much less why this particular change is newsworthy.

Historian With a History
The nominee for U.S. archivist has a penchant for dubious methods.

Irvine and contributing editor to the Nation magazine. His
forthcoming book is "Historians in Trouble." E-mail:

Go ahead, try. Name the archivist of the United States.
It's a pretty fair bet you failed. The archivist, former
Kansas Gov. John Carlin, oversees the nation's most
important documents: the Declaration of Independence, the
Constitution, the Bill of Rights. The position has
traditionally been one of the lower-profile jobs in the
federal hierarchy, but, as its website notes, the National
Archives is not simply "a dusty hoard of ancient history. It
is a public trust on which our democracy depends. It
enables people to inspect for themselves the record of what
government has done."
