Extractions: Special to The Christian Science Monitor AMHERST, MASS. Well, maybe, although it seems that a large number of people have managed the trick of never hearing the name or seeing the portrait art of Mr. Knox, who has successfully operated under the art world's radar for many years. PRESIDENTIAL PAINTER: That may be changing, however, since the Silver Springs, Md., artist was selected to paint President Clinton's official White House portrait, perhaps the apex of any portrait artist's career. And with that, Knox, whose clients principally have been judges and a variety of African-American political and cultural leaders, became the first African-American to win this reputation-making commission. Knox's selection was no fluke. "Our goal was to give someone new the opportunity," says Eugenie Bisulco, a Clinton administration staffer who headed the search team for a White House portrait artist. Last December, Knox showed Clinton his portfolio and soon after was given the go-ahead. In Knox's portrait, President Clinton is flanked by a number of props that have meaning to him, including a bust of Abraham Lincoln, an American flag, and some military medallions. Earlier this week, Knox told the Monitor that he is in the process of finishing the portrait. But no date has yet been set for the painting to be unveiled at the White House.
Extractions: Origins The Symposium was begun in 1933 by Laboratory director Reginald Harris, son-in-law of Charles Davenport, long-time Laboratory director and leader of the American eugenics movement. Harris inherited from his father-in-law a desire to establish a quantitative biology, to move biology away from descriptive, 19th-century practices and more toward the style of other sciences like physics and chemistry. The early Symposia were relatively non-descript, but they were interdisciplinary and set the stage for the later, pathbreaking Symposia of the 1940s, '50s, and '60s. In 1941 Milislav Demerec became director of the Biological Laboratory at Cold Spring Harbor. A primary goal of his was to unite the Bio Lab with the Carnegie Institution of Washington's Department of Genetics, adjacent to the Bio Lab (these two institutions, which had operated side by side since 1904, were merged at last in 1963 to become the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory for Quantitative Biology). One way to do this was to focus the research of both institutions on genetics, biochemistry, and evolution, and one way to do that was to emphasize these topics in the annual Symposium. Demerec thus brought CSH Symposium into its classic period discipline-defining meetings on molecular biology.

Extractions: Culture of the Classic Movies Era Most classic film fans will probably tell you that the main reason they like older films is that "they just don't make 'em like they used to." But, truth be told, probably the #1 attraction of films from the 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s is the very fact that they were made during that era in the first place. Some of us remember that time from first-hand experience (well, part of it, maybe). Others wish they'd been born earlier. In any case, while every decade has its good points and its bad points, the first half of the 20th Century had an undeniable charm to most of us. All this is by way of introduction to a permanent new Subjects category on the Classic Movies site. I'm calling it Classic Movies Culture. It consists of links to sites that are not specifically movie sites, but which focus on aspects of culture during the era we like to think of as the Golden Age of Hollywood. You'll find a number of excellent sites listed below. The complete and regularly updated list can be found on the new

Extractions: It's all over. Or is it? In 1938 Congress established the Committee on Un-American Activities of the House of Representatives (HUAC). In 1969 its name was changed to the House Internal Security Committee, and in 1975 this group was dissolved and its records and authority transferred to the House Judiciary Committee. In 1976, the HUAC's vast files on tens of millions of "subversive' Americans were sealed in the National. Archives, not to be opened to public scrutiny for 50 years. In April 1977, that other relic of a supposedly bygone era, the Senate Internal Security Committee, was abolished, its responsibilities taken over by the Senate Judiciary Committee. An historic period had come to an end. Or had it? Many of these extremely important issues are highlighted by Robert Carl Cohen in his film COMMITTEE ON UN-AMERICAN ACTIVITIES . The film is certainly timely and its significance today perhaps even greater than when it was produced in 1962. SYNOPSIS: COMMITTEE ON UN-AMERICAN ACTIVITIES is the first film ever made by a private US citizen which questioned the legitimacy of a US governmental agency. As its name implied, the Committee's purpose was to investigate those organizations and individuals it deemed "un-American." The writer-director of the film uses as his focus a modern day "Everyman," an average American who wanted to understand the Committee, its purpose, its function. He watches as events spanning a quarter-century unwind. He witnesses the beginnings of the Committee under Chairman Martin Dies, the post-World War II sessions under Chairman J. Parnell Thomas, when particular attention was paid to the employment of alleged communists in Hollywood. He sees the parade of friendly and unfriendly witnesses who appeared before the Committee, of witnesses who refused to cooperate with the Committee and subsequently saw friendships destroyed, jobs lost, freedom exchanged for prison and, in some cases, even suicide.

Extractions: Few events in the 20 th century and American history as a whole were as consequential as the end of the Cold War and collapse of Soviet communism. This is certainly true for the latter half of the 20 th century. Soviet communism took power in 1917. The Cold War started in the mid to late 1940s. Both were finished by 1989/91 ends that Ronald Reagan hoped for long before his 1981-89 presidency. Reagan even predicted communisms demise. His administration, remarkably, actually went beyond hoping for the end of communism, and beyond the bosss forecast that communism would end up on the ash heap of history. In fact, the Reagan administration went so far as to actually design and implement a number of actions, policies, and even formal directives intended to undermine the USSR. As What Reagan Knew makes clear, the Reagan team actually took numerous steps with the very specific intent of actually trying to defeat Soviet communism and win the Cold War. This is historically critically important. What was the personal role of Reagan himself in this monumental effort?
