USS Conyngham (DD-58), Boston, 11 February 1919 - History

This page provides links to the Picture Data sheets for every panoramic photograph posted on the Online Library. These photographs were quite popular during the first several decades of the Twentieth Century. Usually made with a camera that mechanically scanned a wide-angle scene, panoramic photos were commonly taken of ships, groups of people, banquets and other subjects that were much wider than they were tall.

The resulting "long and skinny" prints often show considerable distortion of the image, but this can be brought into proper perspective by curving the full-size print horizontally within the observer's field of vision.

Aroostook class minelayers/seaplane & balloon tenders
Displacement: approx. 3800 tons standard
Dimensions: 395 x 52 x 16 feet/120.4 x 15.8 x 4.8 meters ( Shawmut 386 feet/117.6 meters)
Propulsion: VTE engines, 8 boilers, 2 shafts, 7000 hp, 20 knots ( Shawmut reported as 14 or 17 knots)
Crew: variable, approx. 300-370
Armor: none
Armament: 1 5/51 SP, 2 3/50 AA, 2 MG, provision for 300 mines
Aircraft: several seaplanes
Concept/Program: Merchant ships acquired in 1917 for use as transports, but converted to minelayers. Temporarily assigned to duties as aviation tenders in 1919, but remained in the aviation role for an extended period due to lack of replacements.

Design/Conversion: Oringal superstructure was stripped off and replaced by a new superstructure, large internal mine deck added. As seaplane tenders the mine rails were removed, and aircraft hoisting booms, repair and servicing facilities, etc. were added. Shawmut had equipment for servicing and support of kite balloons. Both retained some minelaying equipment.

Variations: As merchant shipps these were near-sisters, not identical sisters, so there were some variations in details.

Classification: Both ships given minelayer designations (CM) 17 July 1920 upon the creation of the designation system, and retained these designations throughout their service as aviation ships.

Operational: Both saw service in supporting early trans-Atlantic seaplane flights, then as aviation station tenders at various locations.

Departure from Service/Disposal: Both left aviation service for other duties during the late 1920's and early 1930's.

DANFS History

Built by Cramp. Date laid down unknown, launched and completed as merchant ship 1907. Acquired by USN 12 November 1917, converted to minelayer at Boston Navy Yard, commissioned as minelayer 7 December 1917. Helped in laying the North Sea mine barrage.

Converted for seaplane support at Mare Island Navy Yard early 1920, served as Pacific fleet aviation tender. Designated CM 3 17 July 1920.

Decommissioned to reserve 10 March 1931. Redesignated as a cargo ship (AK 44) 20 May 1941. Transferred to the Maritime Commission for disposal 5 February 1943. Sold postwar and converted to a casino ship at Long Beach. Scrapped in 1948.

DANFS History

Built by Cramp. Date laid down unknown, launched and completed as merchant ship 1907. Acquired by USN 12 November 1917, converted to minelayer at Boston Navy Yard, commissioned as minelayer 7 January 1918. Helped in laying the North Sea mine barrage.

Converted for seaplane support at Boston Navy Yard early 1919, served as Atlantic Fleet aviation tender. Renamed Oglala 1 January 1928 and became flagship of Mine Division 1, with her seaplane facilities removed. Considered for use as seaplane depot ship in 1931, but rejected as unsuitable.

Moored outboard of cruiser Helena at Pearl Harbor 7 December 1941 a torpedo hit the cruiser and sprang the seams of Oglala she capsized and sank. Salvaged 1942 and repaired at Mare Island Navy Yard redesignated ARG 1 and recommissioned 21 May 1943 as a repair ship for internal combustion engines. Armament after refit was 1 5", 4 3" AA, 4 40 mm AA and 8 20 mm AA.

Decommissioned (date uncertain), stricken for disposal 11 July 1946. Transferred to the Maritime Commission and served as a depot ship for the Suisun Bay reserve fleet. Sold and scrapped in 1965.

Harding (Wickes class) destroyer/seaplane tender
Displacement: approx. 1,290 tons full load
Dimensions: 314.5 x 31 x 20.5 feet/95.8 x 9.5 x 6.25 meters
Propulsion: Steam turbines, 4 boilers, 27,000 shp, 35 knots
Crew: approx. 110
Armor: none
Armament: 4 4/50 SP, 4 triple 21 inch torpedo tubes
Aircraft: seaplane servicing facilities

Concept/Program: A "flush deck" destroyer modified as a seaplane tender following WWI had previously serveded as a guide ship for trans-Atlantic seaplane flights. She was one of the pioneer seaplane tenders, and her service was short. It is possible that additional destroyers were modified as seaplane tenders during this period, but details are unknown.

Class: Wickes class "Bethlehem" type variant of the basic design.

Design/Conversion: Detail unknown some torpedo tubes may have been removed.

Departure from Service/Disposal: She apparently left seaplane duties early in 1921, and was decommissioned in 1922.

DANFS History

Built by Bethlehem San Francisco. Laid down 12 February 1918, launched 4 July 1918, commissioned 24 January 1919. Converted to a seaplane tender at Charleston Navy Yard 13 December 1919 to 20 May 1920, then served at Pensacola and in the Caribbean.

Detached from seaplane duty 2/1921. Decommissioned to reserve 1 July 1922. Stricken for disposal 7 January 1936, sold 29 September 1936 and subsequently scrapped.

Class: Originally a "Hog Island" freighter.

Design/Conversion: Conversion from an airship tender included removing the "balloon well" and fitted additional aircraft hoisting booms. There were extensive shop facilities and evidently a considerable cargo capacity.

Classification: Reclassified as a seaplane tender when her balloon was removed, prior to full conversion.

Operational: From the start she was frequently used as a tender to flying boats and seaplanes, and also served as a general-purpose auxiliary in roles such as command, salvage, disaster relief and transport.

Departure from Service/Disposal: Starting October 1944 she was designated as a miscellaneous auxiliary and served as a headquarters ship for service squadrons.

Redesignated as seaplane tender AV 1 11 November 1923. Fully converted to a seaplane tender 7/1926 to 12/1916 at Norfolk Navy Yard. Conversion included removal of balloon well and fitting of additional aircraft hoisting booms. During the 1920's she saw extensive service along the US east coast, including the salvage of the submarine S-4 , hurricane relief, troop transport, etc. Served in the Pacific during the 1930's and into WWII.

Shortly before WWII she assisted in the establishment of several advance bases in the Pacific. Early in the war she was used as a transport to supply and support various bases, especially those around Hawaii. From mid-1942 on she again served as a seaplane tender.

Reclassified as a miscellaneous auxiliary (AG 79) 1 October 1944 and served as a headquarters ship for Pacific service forces. Renamed San Clemente 3 February 1945. Immediately postwar served as an occupation headquarters ship.

Decommissioned 21 June 1946, stricken for disposal 1 July 1946. Transferred to the Maritime Commission for disposal 21 September 1946. Sold 19 August 1948 and subsequently scrapped.

Jason aviation support ship
Displacement: approx. 19,250 tons full load
Dimensions: 536 x 65 x 27.5 feet/163.4 x 19.8 x 8.4 meters
Propulsion: VTE engines, 14 knots
Crew: 82 as built
Armor: none
Armament: 4 4" SP as built
Aircraft: unknown

Concept/Program: Former collier employed as a support ship for US aviation operations in the Far East, and eventually reclassified as a seaplane tender. Little is known about this ship, but it is believed that she was not extensively converted to a seaplane role, and probably operated mainly as a transport and logistics ship in support of other aviation units.

Classification: Reclassified AV 2 many years after she assumed an aviation support role, probably to acknowledge that she was no longer employed as a collier.

Operational: Supported US aviation operations in the Far East from 1925 to decommissioning.

Departure from Service/Disposal: Decommissioned in 1932.

Langley seaplane tender
Displacement: 11,500 tons full load
Dimensions: 520 x 65.5 x 16.5 feet/158.5 x 20 x 5 meters
Extreme Dimensions: 542 x 65.5 x 16.5 feet/165.2 x 20 x 5 meters

Crew: 714
Armor: none
Armament: 4 single 5/51 SP
Aircraft: several seaplanes

Concept/Program: Experimental aircraft carrier (originally a collier) converted to a seaplane tender following her replacement as first-line carrier. This was another of the early, make-do conversions pending the availability of purpose-built seaplane tenders. She retained a large carrier-like deck which made her quite useful as an aircraft ferry.

Design/Conversion: The forward 1/3 of the flight deck was removed to open up a seaplane servicing deck, and seaplane hoisting booms were installed. The remainder of the flight deck apparently served no purpose other than as an aircraft storage area when the ship served as an aircraft ferry.

Modifications: No major modifications in service as a seaplane tender.

Classification: Reclassified from carrier (CV) to seaplane tender (AV) after conversion.

Operational: Early in WWII she saw service as an aircraft transport in addition to seaplane duties.

Departure from Service/Disposal: Sunk early in WWII.

Other Notes: As collier she had been the first turbo-electric USN vessel.

Historical Note:

On April 15, 1920, paymaster Frederick Parmenter and security guard Alessandro Berardelli were robbed and murdered at the Slater-Morrill Shoe Company factory in Braintree, Massachusetts. On May 5, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti -- two Italian immigrants and anarchists -- were arrested for the crime. On May 9, Aldino Felicani, a friend of Vanzetti’s, along with other Italian radicals, established the Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee in Boston’s North End. On September 11, 1920, Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were charged with robbing and murdering Parmenter and Berardelli. Prior to their arrests, Felicani published l'agitazione, a small newspaper that, after the arrest, became the Committee’s official organ. Felicani also acted as the committee's treasurer and chief publicist. More importantly however, Felicani was the liaision between a group of Italian anarchists and a team of increasingly conservative lawyers.

The purpose of the Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee was two-fold: to keep the names of Sacco and Vanzetti in the public consciousness and to free them from jail. They did this by raising money to pay for the men’s legal expenses and publishing and disseminating news items which refuted every aspect of prosecution’s case. Fundraising efforts included sending subscription lists to labor unions and other progressive organizations, selling publications, and holding meetings featuring well known labor leaders. Over the years, radicals, civil rights leaders, and activists such as Joseph Ettor, Frank Lopez, Mary Donovan, Jackson Gardner, Hapgood Powers, Selma Maximon, Elizabeth Glendower Evans, and Creighton Hill all worked for the cause.

In August 1920, at the urging of Italian anarchist Carlo Tresca and American Civil Liberties Union founder Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, the committee hired labor attorney Fred Moore to lead the defense team of William G. Thompson and Thomas and James McAnarney. Other lawyers who represented Sacco and Vanzetti were Arthur D. Hill, who was retained to make final arguments, and Herbert Ehermann.

Fred Moore, who had a role in the Lawrence mills strike 0f 1912 (Bread and Roses strike), based part of his defense strategy on transforming a local criminal trial into an international cause. His connections with prominent socialist and labor leaders enabled him to enlist the help of many liberal, radical, and progressive organizations in the country. The United Mine Workers, International Ladies Garment Union, and the International Workers of the World were a few of many unions whose membership contributed substantially to the defense of the two men. Financial backing from such progressive organizations as the International Labor Defense Office and the American Fund for Public Service made it possible for the committee to do its work. The American Civil Liberties Union, the New England Civil Liberties Union, and the League for Democratic Control were among the the civil rights organizations that were active in the movement to free Sacco and Vanzetti.

In addition to these organizations, Moore enlisted the help of writers and intellectuals such as John Dos Passos, Eugene Lyons, and Upton Sinclair, who wrote articles and stories for The Nation, The New Republic, and The Federated Press Service, thereby keeping Sacco and Vanzetti headlines in the radical press for seven years. In addition, John Dos Passos and Upton Sinclair also wrote novels about the case. Moore also brought the case to the attention of prominent socialist leaders such as Eugene V. Debs, who became an important figure in the campaign to free the two men. Given the amount of publicity that Moore generated together with the fact that Sacco and Vanzetti were immigrants, it did not take long for laborers and leftist organizations throughout Europe and South America to form their own Sacco and Vanzetti defense committees.

On July 14, 1921 Sacco and Vanzetti were found guilty of robbery and murder. From November 1921-November 1923, Moore and the defense team filed seven motions for new trials. In the summer of 1924, the New Trial League was formed by Committee members Elizabeth Glendower Evans, Selma Maximon, John S. Codman, and John Van Vaerenwyck. The sole purpose of this group was to raise money for a new trial. On October 1, 1924, Judge Thayer denied all motions for a new trial. The New Trial League disbanded shortly after and gave the money it collected to the Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee.

For the next three years, the committee continued to raise money and publish its manifestos, and Fred Moore continued to investigate leads. One such investigation occurred in Italy, where he sent Eugene Lyons (Morris Gebelow) to examine the customs agent who spoke to Sacco on the day of the murder. Fred Moore resigned his position in 1924 and William Thompson became chief counsel. Thompson made numerous attempts to overturn the verdict, including filing a motion for a new trial in light of the confession to the murders by convicted criminal Celestino Madeiros in May 1926. The death sentence, which was handed down on April 9, 1927, met with world-wide protest causing Governor Alvan T. Fuller to postpone the executions and establish an advisory committee, the Lowell Committee, to investigate the possibility of clemency.

The failure of the Lowell Committee to recommend clemency resulted in demonstrations all over the world, and although Fuller granted a ten day stay during which time several more appeals were made on behalf of the men, nothing could be done. Sacco and Vanzetti were executed on August 23, 1927 in the Charlestown State Prision in Charlestown, Massachusetts. On August 28, 1927, the funeral service for Sacco and Vanzetti was held in Boston’s Forest Hills Cemetary. Mary Donovan gave the eulogy.

Soon after the funeral, Aldino Felicani along with Creighton Hill, Hapgood Powers, Mary Donovan, and Gardner Jackson established the Sacco-Vanzetti Memorial Committee. The purpose of memorial committee was similar to that of the defense committee: to keep the names of Sacco and Vanzetti from fading from public memory. They did this by organizing memorial meetings to commorate the anniversaries of the executions. In addition, they made plans for Freedom House, a memorial building they wanted to be constructed in Boston near the Massachusetts State House. In order to pay for the building, Gardner Jackson approached sculptor Gutzon Borglum to make a bas relief of Sacco and Vanzetti, which they hoped would produce enough subscriptions to underwrite the cost of the project. At the first memorial meeting on August 23, 1928, the plaster rendering of the sculpture was unveiled. Considered part of the Felicani collection, the rendering was installed in the entrance way of the Rare Books Department of the Boston Public Library in 1979.

Although the Freedom House was never built, the memorial committee continued to work to clear the men’s names by holding anniversary meetings, publishing articles and memoirs, and appearing at speaking engagements. In addition, Felicani published two magazines - The Lantern, which was inspired by Sacco and Vanzetti and the anti-fascist Countercurrents.

To mark the fiftieth anniversary of their deaths, Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis issued a proclamation which stated that Sacco and Vanzetti’s trial was prejudiced against them because of their ethnicity and political beliefs and that given the limited scope of the appellate review, they should have been granted another trial. Because of this, Chapter 341 of the Acts of 1939 was adopted, which permitted the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court to order a new trial both because the verdict was contrary to the law and because “it was against the weight of the evidence, contradicted by newly discovered evidence” and also “for any other reason that justice may require.” Finally, Governor Dukakis declared August 23, 1977 to be “Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti Memorial Day.” As of 2009, there has been no public memorial dedicated to Sacco and Vanzetti.

The Aldino Felicani Sacco-Vanzetti Collection spans the years 1914-1967, with the bulk dating from 1920-1927. The collection documents the efforts and activities of the Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee to free Nicola Sacco (1891-1927) and Bartolomeo Vanzetti (1888-1927) from prison for the murders of Frederick Parmenter and Alessandro Berardelli, which were committed on April 15, 1920 in Braintree, Massachusetts. In particular, the collection documents the committee's propaganda campaign, Fred Moore's investigation and defense strategies, post-trial proceedings, and the execution of the two men. The efforts, financial and otherwise, made by labor unions, defense organizations, and individuals on behalf of Sacco and Vanzetti are also documented. In addition, Sacco and Vanzetti’s thoughts regarding the guilty verdict and their impending execution are included.

Both Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti wrote more than 200 letters while they were in jail, many of which share common themes, particularly their innocence, the emotional and physical effects of long term imprisonment, and the injustice of the legal system. The letters the two men exchanged between themselves contain news about friends and family, their loyalty to their comrades, and words of support and encouragement. Each man also wrote several letters to members and friends of the committee extending their gratitude for the work that was being done on their behalf, others speaking directly to the historical significance of their fight, and still others that call for mass protests and demonstrations.

Throughout his correspondence, Sacco focuses primarily on the visits from his wife Rose and children Dante and Ines, and how they rejuvenated his spirits. In his letters to Mrs. Jack Cerise, Elizabeth Glendower Evans, and Aldino Felicani, Sacco explains the reasons for his hunger strike, his distrust of Fred Moore, and his conviction that his death will help create a better future for the working class.

Vanzetti corresponded with a number of people including Aldino Felicani, Elizabeth Glendower Evans, his sister Luigia, the Brini family, Alice Stone Blackwell, Roger N. Baldwin, and Eugene and Theodore Debs. The majority of the letters are reflections on the social, political, and religious literature was reading such as Bible, The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, and Why Men Fight by Bertrand Russell. In other letters, Vanzetti writes about Dedham and Braintree trials and the post-trial procedures, and the active role he played in his defense.

While in prison, Vanzetti wrote 54 essays, articles, autobiographical pieces, and editorials in which espressed his ideas about justice, freedom, the bias of the press, and the life experiences that influenced his decision to become an anarchist. Among these writings are “The Story of a Proletarian Life” and “Memories of My Mother’s Life”. In several essays, Vanzetti put forth his arguments for the necessity of a new trial. These include “What I Would Say to the Jurors in My Defense”, and “What I would Have Said to Thayer, Had He Given Me the Chance”.

The correspondence of the Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee documents the efforts and activities generated by the committee, particularly in the areas of fundraising, disseminating propaganda, publicity, and organizing meetings and demonstrations. In addition, the committee’s relationship with the legal defense team, especially Fred Moore and William Thompson, is documented. The participation of labor unions and civil rights organizations, such as the United Mine Workers, the International Labor Defense, the Sons of Italy, and the American Civil Liberties Union is included. Letters written by Mary Donovan, Selma Maximon, and Elizabeth Gurley Flynn report on the organizing that was being done in cities throughout the country, while correspondence from Eugene V. Debs, Eugene Lyons, and Roger Baldwin provide insight into the case from a few of the American radicals who were sympathetic to Sacco and Vanzetti. The letters from Italian anarchists Carlo Tresca and Felice Guadagni are among those that refute the guilty verdict on the basis of political discrimination. Moreover, the efforts of several committees that were established while the men were in jail and after the execution such as the Sacco-Vanzetti Memorial Committee (which was made up of members of the Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee), the Committee for the Vindication of Sacco and Vanzetti, and the Citizens National Committee for Sacco and Vanzetti are also documented.

Meeting minutes of the Executive Committee date from 1924-1927 and provide rare insight into how the committee operated. The majority the entries are comprised of interactions between the Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee and the New Trial League and its response to Sacco and Vanzetti’s opinions about who should be in handling their defense. Other subjects include reports from field organizers, publicity arrangements, and fundraising matters.

One of the primary responsibilities of the committee was to keep the names of Sacco and Vanzetti from slipping into the back pages of the newspapers. They did this by constantly publishing and disseminating the facts of the crime, the trial, and subsequent post-trial proceedings. Some of the subjects covered in the publications are the trial and guilty verdict, the failure of the judicial process, the inequality of law in Massachusetts, and Judge William Thayer’s ability to conduct a fair trial. Elizabeth Glendower Evans, John Dos Passos, Eugene Lyons, and Upton Sinclair were among the contributing writers for the press releases, the official Sacco-Vanzetti Defense Committee Bulletin, and the “News Service” bulletins. Many untitled and unpublished articles by John Nicholas Beffel, Eugene Lyons, and Sinclair Lewis are also included.

The other important function of the committee was fundraising. Among the several expenses that were incurred over the years were attorney and court fees, the costs of the pre-trial investigation, and the contributions made to Sacco’s family. Other expenses, such as daily operating expenses, salaries of office workers, and fees for expert witness testimonies were paid for by contributions made by union members, individuals, and groups from all over the country, including other Sacco-Vanzetti organizations. For seven years, the committee sent out circular letters requesting donations, sold publications, held mass meetings where hats were passed, and received aid from The American Fund for Public Service, Inc., International Labor Defense, and the Workers Defense Union.

Fred Moore’s correspondence from leaders of the labor movement, radicals, and the progressive press documents the steps he took in transforming the trial from a local matter to an international cause. In addition, it documents his defense strategies, his relationship with Sacco and Vanzetti and the committee, and his resignation. Some of the topics discussed throughout are meeting arrangements, the activities unions and defense organizations were doing on behalf of Sacco and Vanzetti, and the relationships between the New York and Boston Sacco-Vanzetti defense committees.

Moore’s correspondence also includes the in-depth investigation Eugene Lyons (Morris Gebelow) undertook in Italy to find the Italian consulate employee Sacco said he had spoken with on the afternoon the crime occurred, the active role Elizabeth Gurley Flynn had in making decisions for the committee and for providing the perspective of the American Civil Liberties Union on the case, and Sacco and Vanzetti’s active monitoring of the status of the case. The letters from the field staff, particularly Selma Maximon and Matilda Robbins, document their efforts to organize support with groups in New York and with other sympathizers throughout the United States.

From the beginning of his position as defense counsel to the time he resigned, Moore compiled twelve notebooks containing material he gathered from his investigation of the robbery and murder. The notebooks contain the results of his investigations such as the personal histories of Frank Silva, Jacob Luban, and other known criminals, and further questioning of several witnesses, among them Anna De Falco and Ruth Johnson. Also documented is the history of the get-away car, Vanzetti’s account of his treatment during his years in prison, and the cause of Frederick Parmenter and Alexander Berardelli’s deaths. In addition, testimonies from eyewitnesses, police, and character witnesses, the backgrounds and work histories of Sacco and Vanzetti, and an analysis of witness testimonies in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts v. Bartolomeo Vanzetti trial are recorded.

After Moore’s resignation in late 1924, William Thompson was named chief counsel. Consequently, the majority of the defense attorney’s correspondence, which dates from 1921-1956, is Thompson’s. The correspondence reflects the state of the case prior to Judge Thayer’s denial of the motions for a new trial in October 1921, the strategies Thompson wanted to implement as the options for a new trial became fewer, and the question of James McArney’s representation of Nicola Sacco. Also included are summaries of his conversations with Vanzetti, the procedures necessary to bring the case to the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, and the dynamics between Thompson and the committee.

Aldino Felicani’s correspondence dates from 1914-1967 and documents his efforts to prove Sacco and Vanzetti’s innocence both while they were alive and after their deaths. The majority of his correspondence from 1914-1920 is in Italian and contains letters from several anarchists, among them Tomaso Concordia, Norman Thomas di Giovaini, Carlo Tresca, and Erasmo S. Abate. Also included is correspondence from Elizabeth Gurley Flynn. After 1920, Felicani's correspondence reflects his position as treasurer of the committee, his role in the defense of Sacco and Vanzetti, and his formation of the Sacco-Vanzetti Memorial Committee. Moreover, his efforts publish to two magazines, The Lantern and Countercurrents, are documented. Much of the later correspondence with former Committee members, particularly Mary Donovan and Hapgood Powers, Creighton Hill, and Jackson Gardner provide details into their personal lives and careers in later years. Other important correspondents include Vincenzia Vanzetti, who kept Felicani up with the news from Villafalletto and the efforts there to clear Vanzetti’s name, Roger Baldwin of the American Civil Liberties Union, and the authors of the books, television and movie scripts written about Sacco and Vanzetti. The letters and newspaper clippings in this series are not translated.

Interspersed with Felicani's correspondence are several documents which contribute to the history of the committee and Felicani’s role in it. These documents include a piece Felicani wrote about Luigia Vanzetti after her death, which is the only documentation that exists in the collection specifically about her (in Italian), the history of Gutzon Borglum’s memorial sculpture, and the legal document giving Felicani power of attorney by Luigia Vanzetti, which gives explicit instructions concerning the dispersal of Bartolomeo’s ashes. Other notable papers are Felicani’s essays “In the Shadow of the Chair” and “Gardner Jackson: a Memoir of the Sacco-Vanzetti Days” because they chronicle the last hours of Sacco and Vanzetti and the ceremony at Forest Hills Cemetery.

The trial transcripts of the proceedings of Commonwealth of Massachusetts v Bartolomeo Vanzetti, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts v Nicolo Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, are also contained in the collection. Other legal records include the post-trial motions and supplementary motions, appeals, and responses to motions. Subjects cover the prosecution’s claim against Sacco and Vanzetti, the crime, Sacco and Vanzetti’s histories and characters, and the evidence. The legal records in this series are not complete. Included in the Manuscripts and Printed Material series are poems by Babbette Deutsch, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Carl Sandberg, and the majority of Upton Sinclair’s book, Boston. In addition, the series contains post-execution newspaper clippings from Italy, television scripts, and essays.

The trial of Sacco and Vanzetti, their deaths, and funeral are documented through photographs, newspaper clippings and press releases, arm bands, and original art work. Also contained in the series are a number of broadsides from unions and Sacco- Vanzetti defense organizations in Europe and South America, which represent the international response to the plight of the two men. Among these groups are the Comité de Ágication Pro Libertad de Sacco y Vanzetti (Argentina), Le CalVarie de Sacco et de Vanzetti (France), Irish Labour Protest Meeting Against Judicial Murder (Ireland), and the Comitato Pro Ribilitazione di Bartolomeo Vanzetti (Italy). In addition, cartoons from the Daily Worker provide political commentary from the communist perspective, while those from the Boston Post report on the big moments of the trial. The series also contains three scrapbooks: two consisting of newspaper clippings and press releases and one of photographs. The newspaper scrapbooks document the entire history of the trial through the 1960s. The “Publicity” scrapbook includes both clippings from both the mainstream press and the committee’s press. Among the subjects documented in the photograph scrapbook are the crime scene, Sacco and Vanzetti when they are first arrested, and Vanzetti’s fish cart. The loose photographs cover such events as the removal of Sacco and Vanzetti’s bodies from the Charlestown jail, the funeral procession through the North End and Scollay Square, and visits to the jail by Rose Sacco and her children, Mary Donovan, and Luigia Vanzetti. Additional photographs document the public and personal reactions to the trial and execution of the anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti. Of note are the photographs that show the public demonstrations and protests that occurred during this time around Boston and in New York, emphasizing police action at these events. Also included are photographs of their supporters, such as Edna St. Vincent Millay, Jean Longuet, and Madame Séverine, as well as their family members and attorneys.


Alexander Graham Bell patents the telephone

On March 7, 1876, 29-year-old Alexander Graham Bell receives a patent for his revolutionary new invention: the telephone.

The Scottish-born Bell worked in London with his father, Melville Bell, who developed Visible Speech, a written system used to teach speaking to the deaf. In the 1870s, the Bells moved to Boston, Massachusetts, where the younger Bell found work as a teacher at the Pemberton Avenue School for the Deaf. He later married one of his students, Mabel Hubbard.

While in Boston, Bell became very interested in the possibility of transmitting speech over wires. Samuel F.B. Morse’s invention of the telegraph in 1843 had made nearly instantaneous communication possible between two distant points. The drawback of the telegraph, however, was that it still required hand-delivery of messages between telegraph stations and recipients, and only one message could be transmitted at a time. Bell wanted to improve on this by creating a “harmonic telegraph,” a device that combined aspects of the telegraph and record player to allow individuals to speak to each other from a distance.

With the help of Thomas A. Watson, a Boston machine shop employee, Bell developed a prototype. In this first telephone, sound waves caused an electric current to vary in intensity and frequency, causing a thin, soft iron plate�lled the diaphragm–to vibrate. These vibrations were transferred magnetically to another wire connected to a diaphragm in another, distant instrument. When that diaphragm vibrated, the original sound would be replicated in the ear of the receiving instrument. Three days after filing the patent, the telephone carried its first intelligible message—the famous “Mr. Watson, come here, I need you”𠅏rom Bell to his assistant.

USS SOMERS Plaque


On September 4, 2018, two hundred and fourteen years to the day Richard Somers died in the explosion of the USS Intrepid in Tripoli Harbor while fighting Barbary Pirates, the USS Somers Crewmembers Association dedicated a USS Somers Plaque at the US Naval Yard in Washington D.C.

Rear Admiral Frank Thorpe IV, President and Chief Executive Officer of the U.S. Navy Memorial addressed the attendees, along with Master of Ceremonies Retired Commander Mike Newell, a former Communications and Navigation Officer and later Supply Officer for the USS Somers (DDG34).

"It was an extraordinary event," said Bob Plante, administrator of the association, "certainly a time that will be remembered by all attendees."

The plaque depicts the four USS Somers of modern times that served during World War II and Vietnam - DD 301-1920-1930, DD-381 1937-1945, DD-947 1959-1966, DDG-34 1968-1982.

There were two nineteenth century sailing ships named USS Somers, and the Crewmembers Association is working hard to get the Navy to name a new ship after Richard Somers, of Somers Point, NJ, one of the first midshipmen in the US Navy. Somers never returned from Tripoli, where he perished in the explosion of the USS Intrepid in Tripoli Harbor on September 4, 1804. His remains are believed to be entombed in a crypt in Old Protestant Cemetery at Tripoli Harbor, despite repeated requests for his repatriation by the Somers family, the citizens of Somers Point, the New Jersey State Legislature, the VFW, American Legion, AM-Vets. The USS Somers Crewmembers Association have added their voice to the choir calling for the repatriation of Somers and the men of the Intrepid.

Congress had previously inserted a requirement for their repatriation in a Defense Authorization Act, but it was removed and replaced with an order for a study of the feasibility of repatriation by Senator John McCain. Ironically, the 2019 Defense Authorization Act is named in John McCain's honor and he passed away a few days before the dedication of the USS Somers Plaque.

When McCain was asked why he blocked the repatriation of Somers and the men of the Intrepid he said that he didn't know the reason, he was only following the orders of the Admirals and Generals and top brass who have opposed repatriation, for their own reasons.

It has been suggested that now that McCain is gone, the repatriation could happen, and that remains a possibility.
