Pour la France, versez votre or : l'or combat pour la victoire.

Description: A frightened German soldier holding a rifle in both hands is forced down onto one knee by the weight of a giant French coin which has landed on his arm. On the coin is a bas-relief of a rooster which appears to be escaping the surface of the coin to attack the soldier. Imprinted on the coin is the text: "LIBERTE - EGALITE - FRATERNITE" and "1915".

[Letter from Henry S. Moore to Charles, Mary and Linnet Moore, August 19, 1893]

Description: Letter from Henry Moore to Charles, Mary and Linnet Moore in which he jokes about starvation and then lists the food he has available to eat. He was writing the Moore family while they were visiting family in Gallatin, Tennessee. Henry writesthat he has heard that there are more buggies than hogs in Texas. He discusses the financial crisis of 1893. He also talks about farming, harvesting cotton, and canning peaches. He is interested and would like to see a six inch telescope that the "College at Whitewright" (Grayson College) is said to have. He gives details on a picnic, trips he took, the weather, and his views on politics.

Design of New Monodentate Ligands for Regioselectivity and Enantioselectivity Tuning in Late Transition Metal Catalysis

Description: The ability of gold(I) to activate many types of unsaturated bonds toward nucleophilic attack was not widely recognized until the early 2000s. One major challenge in gold catalysis is the control over regioselectivity when there are two or more possible products as a result of complicated mechanistic pathways. It is well know that the choice of ligand can have dramatic effects on which pathway is being followed but very rarely are the reasons for this selectivity understood. The synthesis of new acyclic diaminocarbenes was developed and a study of the ligand effects on the regioselectivity of a gold-catalyzed domino enyne cyclization hydroarylation reaction and a Nazarov cyclization was undertaken. New chiral acyclic diaminocarbenes were also developed and tested along side new C3-symmetric phosphite ligands in an asymmetric intramolecular hydroamination of allenes. Structure activity correlations were developed for the potential use in further rational ligand design. The synthesis of 6a,7-dihydro-5-amino-dibenzo[c,g]chromene derivatives via a gold-catalyzed domino reaction of alkynylbenzaldehydes in the presence of secondary amines was developed. These were sent to be screened for biological activity.

Mineral Industries Survey of the United States: California, Calaveras County, Mother Lode District (South). Mines of the Southern Mother Lode Region. Part 1 -- Calaveras County

Description: From Introduction: "The present paper discusses regional resources, chiefly of gold, the existence of which has long been demonstrated by substantial production but which are so nearly marginal in value that their mining has been protracted and will probably continue indefinitely for many decades."

Life in the Early Mining Camps of Colorado

Description: The story of the advancing American frontier has unending interest. Perhaps one of the most colorful and unusual frontier developments was that of the mining frontier in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. During the years following the discovery of gold in 1858 and the early 1880's occurred an almost unprecedented evolution from a primitive pioneer society to complex industrial development.
