(Description: “Between 1720 and 1920 at least 60,000 women and girls worked in the mines, quarries and clay works of Cornwall and Devon. They carried out hard, skilled and specialised work, which was a crucial part of the dressing operations. The author has carefully researched their working lives and home-life, their characteristics and the occupational hazards they encountered. How essential were they to the industry? What were their working conditions? How much did they earn? What did they do with the very little spare time and money they had? As the mines closed, where did they go and what happened to them? This is the record of a remarkable group of women, plus some individual accounts of the few whose stories have survived. In this second edition the material has been both revised and expanded. The geographical scope now extended to Dartmoor, and the Teign and Exe Valleys. There is also a more detailed coverage of the tin streams of the late 19th century.” Includes first-hand stories from the Cornish mines and quarries, 1773-1950.)

Granite Cutting Instruction Book

Granite Cutting, an analysis of the granite cutter’s trade, together with specimen instruction, material for use of apprentices and journeymen workers, is the title of an interesting monograph recently issued by the Federal Board for Vocational Education, Washington, D.C. as Bulletin No. 137 of Trade and Industrial Series No. 38. The work is a compilation in book form of the course of instruction for granite cutting apprentices, organized and carried out by the Apprentice Commission of the Granite Industry through the cooperation of the four national trade associations of producers and retailers in the industry.
“The text of the work was prepared by G. A. McGarvey of the Federal Service and Harrie H. Sherman, Secretary of the American Granite Association. It contains over 150 pages, with many diagrams and illustrations, and is a complete manual of instruction for training granite cutting apprentices.
“The book may be purchased for 50 cents from the Superintendent of Documents, Washington, D.C. (in 1929).”

Monumental News-Review Records

“Extent: 1.5 linear ft.; Dates: 1947-1955; Record Types: Photographs, advertising copy, correspondence, and designs.  Monumental News-Review, a trade magazine for the monument industry, was founded in 1889 as Monumental News. In 1939, the magazine bought Granite, Marble, and Bronze and soon after, Monument and Cemetery Review.  In 1961 the magazine changed publishers and became the ‘official’ magazine for the American Monument Association. The magazine is still published under the name Stone in America.
“The collection contains photographs, negatives, advertising copy, correspondence etc. relating to the production of Monumental News-Review during the years 1950-1955.  The collection may have been created by Henry C. Whitaker, Jr., an associate editor of Monumental News-Review, who lived in Barre from 1949-1961.”

Curtis, which have been shown and illustrated in many parts of the country…In addition to his large number of photographs, of typical individuals, ceremonials and customs and scenes of daily life, Mr. Curtis has been for several years engaged in gathering from each tribe that he visits all the information available, as a supplement to his picture…Notwithstanding the great difference in the methods of the two arts, the resemblance between these pictures and the works in bronze and plaster of the sculptors was striking, and testified to the faithfulness both to nature and spirit of both – as may be seen in our reproductions….”  (According to the article, the exhibition was held in the National Arts Club of New York City in November and December 1905.)
