    The collection contains papers relating to members of the Addison, Dunlap, Gaston, Gill, McCollough, McDowell, Strait and Wylie families as well as various other families. Included in the papers are correspondence, military orders, court orders, deeds, wills, notices, financial records, government appointments, contracts of employment, documents relating to land transactions, tax forms, and a petition of guardianship, an application for Confederate Roll of Honour, a statement of births and deaths, a list of taxable property in Chester, a deposition, an affidavit, and an editorial column. The collection is made up entirely of positive photocopies of original documents. The collection may assist in genealogical research of the above named families. Rosa Baskin Strait Guess (1892-1988) was a Winthrop graduate of the Class of 1911, was a longtime music teacher at Rock Hill High School, author, and a genealogist descended from some of the earliest families in Chester, SC including revolutionary leader Justice John Gaston (1700-1782).https://digitalcommons.winthrop.edu/manuscriptcollection_findingaids/1478/thumbnail.jp

    Λc+\Lambda^+_c production in pppp and in pp-Pb collisions at sNN\sqrt {s_{NN}}=5.02 TeV

    No full text
    International audienceThe production cross section of prompt Λc+\mathrm{\Lambda_{c}^{+}} charm baryons was measured with the ALICE detector at the LHC at midrapidity in proton-proton (pp) and proton-lead (p-Pb) collisions at a centre-of-mass energy per nucleon pair of sNN=5.02\sqrt{s_\mathrm{NN}} = 5.02 TeV. The Λc+\mathrm{\Lambda_{c}^{+}} and Λc\rm {\overline{\Lambda}{}_c^-} baryons were reconstructed in the hadronic decay channels Λc+pKπ+\rm \Lambda_{c}^{+} \rightarrow p K^{-}\pi^{+} and Λc+pKS0\rm \Lambda_{c}^{+}\to p K^{0}_{S} and respective charge conjugates. The measured differential cross sections as a function of transverse momentum (pTp_{\rm T}) and the pTp_{\rm T}-integrated Λc+\mathrm{\Lambda_{c}^{+}} production cross section in pp and in p-Pb collisions are presented. The Λc+\mathrm{\Lambda_{c}^{+}} nuclear modification factor (RpPbR_\mathrm{pPb}), calculated from the cross sections in pp and in p-Pb collisions, is presented and compared with the RpPbR_\mathrm{pPb} of D mesons. The Λc+/D0\mathrm {\Lambda_{c}^{+}}/\mathrm {D^0} ratio is also presented and compared with the light-flavour baryon-to-meson ratios p/π/\pi and Λ/KS0\Lambda /\mathrm {K^0_S}, and measurements from other LHC experiments. The results are compared to predictions from model calculations and Monte Carlo event generators

    Global polarization of Λ and Λ hyperons in Pb-Pb collisions at √ s N N = 2.76 and 5.02 TeV

    The global polarization of Λ and Λ hyperons is measured for Pb-Pb collisions at √sNN = 2.76 and 5.02 TeV recorded with the ALICE at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The results are reported differentially as a function of collision centrality and hyperon’s transverse momentum (pT ) for the range of centrality 5–50%, 0.5 < pT < 5 GeV/c, and rapidity |y| < 0.5. The hyperon global polarization averaged for Pb-Pb collisions at √sNN = 2.76 and 5.02 TeV is found to be consistent with zero, ⟨PH⟩(%)≈0.01±0.06(stat.)±0.03(syst.) in the collision centrality range 15–50%, where the largest signal is expected. The results are compatible with expectations based on an extrapolation from measurements at lower collision energies at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, hydrodynamical model calculations, and empirical estimates based on collision energy dependence of directed flow, all of which predict the global polarization values at LHC energies of the order of 0.01%

    Charged-particle multiplicity fluctuations in Pb–Pb collisions at √ sNN = 2.76 TeV

    No full text
    Measurements of event-by-event fluctuations of charged-particle multiplicities in Pb–Pb collisionsat √sNN = 2.76 TeV using the ALICE detector at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) are presented in the pseudorapidity range |η| < 0.8 and transverse momentum 0.2 < pT < 2.0 GeV/c. The amplitude of the fluctuations is expressed in terms of the variance normalized by the mean of the multiplicity distribution. The η and pT dependences of the fluctuations and their evolution with respect to collision centrality are investigated. The multiplicity fluctuations tend to decrease from peripheral to central collisions. The results are compared to those obtained from HIJING and AMPT Monte Carlo event generators as well as to experimental data at lower collision energies. Additionally, the measured multiplicity fluctuations are discussed in the context of the isothermal compressibility of the high-density strongly-interacting system formed in central Pb–Pb collisions
