BOOK EXCERPT:

In 1907, William Winlock Miller High School, known as Olympia High School, first opened its doors to the sons and daughters of the South Puget Sound area's pioneer families. Three campuses and a century later, the school remains a vibrant part of the community and a herald of academic and athletic excellence across the state. A walk through time, this volume illustrates the pictorial history of the buildings and campuses, well-known personalities, student life, and traditions that have left an indelible mark on the history of the region. This book touches upon the many institutions that have endured and pays homage to the customs that have been lost or evolved over the decades. From the original campus adjacent to the current state capitol, to the 43 years on Capitol Way, to the dairy farm evolving into a 15-acre complex, now home to William Winlock Miller High School, this work is the most comprehensive study of the history of Olympia High School to date.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Also known as the Old Red Barn, Olympia Stadium was the largest rink in the United States when it opened in Detroit on October 22,1927. Robert Wimmer has compiled over 200 historic photographs and detailed captions for this new book, that follows the life of a sporting and entertainment landmark in the Motor City until its demolition in 1986. For over half a century, the Olympia Stadium hosted many of the top shows and stars coming through Detroit. The historic landmark filled its seats for the multitude of sporting events in Michigan, including championship boxing, wrestling, and lacrosse, and was also the home of the Detroit Redwings and the Pistons. Although there are many anonymous people pictured here who contributed to the history of the stadium, readers will recognize the more familiar faces and acts of Elvis Presley, the Beatles, the Roy Rogers Rodeo, Dick the Bruiser, and many others.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Located on the southernmost point of Puget Sound, the Olympia area was occupied by the Coastal Salish Indians for many generations before American settlers established a town site there in 1846. First the provisional territorial capital in 1853, incorporated as a town in 1859, it then became the permanent state capital when Washington attained statehood in 1889. The town was named for the majestic Olympic Mountains, visible on a clear day. The town's history and landmarks, including the capitol building, the waterfront, the downtown businesses, and the Olympia brewery, as well as the surrounding areas, were all visually documented by the picture postcard, which gained widespread popularity at the beginning of the 20th century.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Eunice Lipton was a fledging art historian when she first became intrigued by Victorine Meurent, the nineteenth-century model who appeared in Edouard Manet's most famous paintings, only to vanish from history in a haze of degrading hearsay. But had this bold and spirited beauty really descended into prostitution, drunkenness, and early death—or did her life, hidden from history, take a different course altogether? Eunice Lipton's search for the answer combines the suspense of a detective story with the revelatory power of art, peeling off layers of lies to reveal startling truths about Victorine Meurent—and about Lipton herself.

BOOK EXCERPT:

For over a half century Olympia Stadium was THE entertainment venue in Detroit. Almost every major sports and entertainment event was played there. The major tenant was the Detroit Red Wings. Most of the major touring ice shows also skated at the Olympia; great entertainers such as Elvis, the Beatles, KISS, Isaac Hayes, Alice Cooper, Lawrence Welk, John Denver, the Lone Ranger, and the Globetrotters stopped by to perform. In Remembering Detroit's Olympia Stadium, the author leads the reader on a fascinating journey, through the use of over 200 historic photographs, allowing us a glimpse into that building on Grand River and McGraw that was a second home to many. This volume also features the people behind the scenes who made the popcorn, cleaned the ice, sold drinks and food; took your tickets; saw you to your seats. The media, which reported the events on radio, TV, and in the newspapers, and the Red Wing Alumni who have been skating for over 40 years in old timers games rising money for charities, are all part of this celebration of Detroit's history.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book began to take shape following a conference on the Statue of Zeus at Olympia held at the University of Queensland in July 2008. In line with the main themes of the conference, the book has two fundamental aims: the first is to recognise the unsurpassed reputation of the Zeus in antiquity, to move beyond the framework provided by the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and to treat the famous statue in depth, as befits its unique importance in ancient times; the second aim is to employ a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives in the hope of capturing more accurately than before something of that unique importance. The book is aimed at academic specialists in a variety of disciplines (such as art, archaeology, history, literature, and cultural poetics), though it is also intended to be accessible to undergraduates and certainly to research students. The audience will primarily be one interested in classical antiquity, but there are chapters which trace the story and influence of the Zeus through the Byzantine, Renaissance, and early modern periods, and into more recent centuries in both the northern and southern hemispheres.
