America’s Strength Pictured here is a poster entitled "America's Strength," which describes the differences between the strength of Germany and the strength of the United States, and encourages workers not to treasure wages and profits, but treasure the sacrifice of their labor for the war effort. This poster was produced by the United States Department of Labor and, like many other propaganda posters, was distributed to American factories in order to encourage workers to maximize efficiency for the war effort.

It's Violin Day. For decades instrument makers, musicians, and even scientists have tried to figure out what makes a Stradivarius so special. Explore the whole story in the new issue of Distillations magazine.

    Stradivari and the Search for Brilliance
    One of Roman Totenberg's first memories was of Moscow and his mother arriving home with a horse's head to cook for dinner. Totenberg's family had fled Poland at the beginning of World War I to avoid the fighting, but they could not avoid the famine that accompanied the Russian Revolution.

Even the mission has evolved --- but the need to create has always driven us forward, that has not changed.

If nothing lasts forever, how and why do we save what we save? In our current exhibition, Things Fall Apart, we explore how things break down, crumble, and rust. We’re surrounded by constant change as we reclaim, reuse, or reimagine the world and our stuff. How do you protect or repair something you treasure? Maybe it is an old sweater handmade by someone you love, or holiday decorations broken by a family pet. How do you put back together what falls apart?

Secrets! Romance! Scandal! The Hush-Hush Love Of Philly’s Paint King And His Irish Lass

The congregation of Old First Reformed built a third church at Fourth and Race Street to meet the growing needs of their fold and to reduce the level of traffic noise heard from their former location on Race Street. The third church was dedicated on March 4, 1837.

The John Lucas Paint Company was an early pioneer in the American paint and varnish industry. Established in 1848 at 33 North Front Street (a spot now covered by I-95), the firm marketed Lucas Liquid Paint, a ready-mix paint that became very popular.

    The Old First Reformed Church-United Church of Christ at Fourth and Race Streets-where a live-animal crèche is on display during the Christmas season every year since 1973-has been the center of several colorful episodes over the past three centuries. In addition to the church congregation's nearly 300 years on the site, the current church building has lived a peculiar life.

While we are not rooting for one team or the other in the upcoming Army vs. Navy game, we must concede that the 1913 regulations governing the admission of candidates into the U.S. Naval Academy were rigorous! While processing a series of records from Record Group 181, Records of the Naval Districts and Shore Establishments, we uncovered an interesting booklet entitled “Regulations Governing Admission of Candidates into the U.S. Naval Academy.” Dated 1913, the regulations outline the U.S. Navy Department’s physical, moral, and intellectual requirements for enlisted Navy personnel to be admitted to the U.S. Naval Academy as midshipmen. To see if you would qualify, try a few of the questions from the practice examination! Or grab a friend and quiz one another! Take the quiz by visiting the Pieces of History blog. This post comes from our very own Samuel Limneos, Archives Technician at the National Archives at Philadelphia. https://prologue.blogs.archives.gov/2017/12/07/do-you-have-what-it-takes-to-be-a-midshipmen-at-the-u-s-naval-academy-1913-edition/#more-28172 Tagging: Army West Point Football, Navy Football, Navy Department Library, Nimitz Library, United States Naval Academy
