    The Isaac T. and Lida K. Johnson Lectureship, made possible by their gift, was created by the Executive Committee of the Five Years Meeting in its sessions of April, 1940. The creative minute of the Executive Committee is in part as follows: It is the duty of the Executive Committee to determine the use of this money and the Central Committee submits this recommendation: (1) that the gift be made a continuing memorial to these dear friends and (2) that the memorial be in the form of a lectureship for the Five Years Meeting, and, as it may direct, to be known as the Isaac T. and Lida K. Johnson Lectureship. It is further recommended that these lectures shall within the jurisdiction of the Executive Committee, be restricted to the field of Christian scholarship and the Christian message and its application to life. It is the confident expectation of the Executive Committee that not only the constituency of the Five Years Meeting, but all of Quakerism will be enriched by the successive messages made possible by this gift.https://digitalcommons.georgefox.edu/quakerbooks/1072/thumbnail.jp

    This collection is contained in two series, the first being George S. Patton Jr.’s letters to his Aunt “Nannie” and his mother from both VMI and West Point (1903-1908). The second being George S. Patton Jr.’s book “My Father as I remembered him.”, which contains a biography of his father, George S. Patton, and a brief biography of other family members, including himself up to 1927. In Patton’s book “My Father as I remembered him,” he gives brief descriptions and stories about his family, starting with the first “Patton” and ending with himself in 1927. The first “Patton” was Robert William Patton, born in Ayrshire, Scotland around 1750, who became one of the first Virginia settlers in the 1770s. Robert Patton married Anne Gordon Mercer in 1797 and began the Patton Family lineage. Their son Robert Patton (father of George Smith Patton Sr. and Waller Tazewell Patton) was born in 1798. George S. Patton Sr. was a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute Class of 1852 and a Colonel in the Confederate States of America from 1861-1864. His brother, Waller T. Patton was an 1855 graduate of the Virginia Military Institute and a Colonel in the Confederate States of America from 1861-1863. He was killed at the Battle of Gettysburg. George Smith Patton, Jr., was born in 1856 and graduated from the Virginia Military Institute in 1877. He married Ruth Wilson and they became the parents of George S. Patton Jr in 1885. After holding the office of Mayor in San Marino, California from 1913-1922 and then 1922-1924, he retired and later died in 1927.

    Complex regional pain syndrome in a competitive athlete and regional osteoporosis assessed by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry: a case report.

    Get PDF
    Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is rarely utilized in the clinical care of patients with complex regional pain syndrome, but may be useful for the non-invasive determination of regional bone fragility and fracture risk, as well as muscular atrophy and regional body composition. This is the first report in the literature of complex regional pain syndrome and musculoskeletal co-morbidities in an athlete, and is the first to focus on dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry for the clinical assessment of complex regional pain syndrome

    The use of digital image analysis of LANDSAT imagery in water resource assessment is discussed. The data processing systems employed are described. The determination of urban land use conversion of agricultural land in two southwestern Idaho counties involving estimation and mapping of crop types and of irrigated land is described. The system was also applied to an inventory of irrigated cropland in the Snake River basin and establishment of a digital irrigation water source/service area data base for the basin. Application of the system to a determination of irrigation development in the Big Lost River basin as part of a hydrologic survey of the basin is also described
