Biographies and Memoirs Holocaust Charles Lindbergh Alexander, Adele Logan - Homelands and Waterways : The American Journey of the Bond Family : Nation, Race, and Kinship, 1846-1926
(July 1999) John Robert Bond, son of a white Englishwoman and a black laborer on the Liverpool waterfront, became a sailor in the American Union Navy and married Emma Thomas, a Virginia woman born into slavery, in 1865. Chronicling their lives and those of their children and grandchildren, the author (their great-granddaughter Adele Logan Alexander) presents a dramatic family saga intertwined with a sweeping account of the black experience in America from 1846, the year of John's birth, to 1926, when Emma died at age 80. Most of the Bonds were talented, determined, and successful beyond the normJohn and Emma's progeny included a prosperous businessman and a Radcliffe graduate who was a close friend of W.E.B. Du Boisbut Alexander firmly links their story to the struggles and suffering of all African Americans, delineating with blistering matter-of-factness the galling restrictions they faced every day in every generation.

Latino Brief Therapy Center
Barbara Anger-Diaz, Ph.D.
BARBARA ANGER-DIAZ has been with the Brief Therapy Center since 1991. She has a multi-cultural background, having been born in Germany, raised in Mexico and done most of her studying and training in New York City. Long before her immersion in brief therapy, she had received psychoanalytic psychotherapy training and worked with an interpersonal understanding of people and relationships. She received her doctorate at the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City in 1987, where she also taught as an Adjunct Professor in their Department of Psychology. Her doctoral dissertation was on psychological effects of a computer programming course (given by the Fundación Arturo Rosenblueth, Mexico City) on schizophrenic patients (published in Salud Mental, 1987). She co-directs (together with Karin Schlanger) the Latino Brief Therapy Center at MRI since 1994. She speaks on and does training in brief therapy. Of particular interest to her is the question of how to "motivate" or influence clients to change and a very close concern is the therapist's therapeutic stance, i.e. the therapist's "position" while interacting with clients.

Christopher Columbus
Christopher Columbus was born in the Italian seaport of Genoa in 1451, to a family of wool weavers. As a child he helped his father at the loom and then as a young lad went to sea.
Columbus visited the courts of the kings and queens of Europe asking for help and money to find a new route to the Far East, to India, China, Japan and the Spice Islands.
Columbus knew that the world was round and realized that by sailing west, instead of east around the coast of Africa, as other explorers at the time were doing, he would still reach the East and the rich Spice Islands. Ferdinand and Isabella, the king and queen of Spain, agreed to support him.
In 1492 Columbus set sail from Spain with three ships, the Nina and the Pinta and the Santa Maria.
After sailing across the Atlantic Ocean for 10 weeks, land was sighted. He landed on a small island in the Bahamas which Columbus named San Salvador. He claimed the island for the king and queen of Spain. When Columbus reached Cuba, he thought it was the mainland of Japan. Columbus returned to Spain in March 1493.
Columbus made three more journeys across the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean. He thought that he had found Japan, but he was still looking for India and the wealthy cities that he believed were nearby. Columbus died still believing that he had found a new route to the East Indies.

Betsy Ross
Betsy Ross made the first American flag is a story known by all Americans. How this came about or who she was may not be such common knowledge. When Washington became commander of the American Army, the flag that was raised was called the Grand Union flag. This flag included the thirteen red and white stripes that we still find on the American flag today and some details of the Union Jack of Britain. It was decided that a new flag was needed. One fine day in 1776, George Ross, a member of the Continental Congress, Robert Morris, a banker, and George Washington approached Betsy Ross¹ house at what is now 239 Arch Street in Philadelphia. Betsy was a well-known seamstress and the three men asked her to make a flag based on a design that Washington had drawn. back
Thomas Jefferson
Thomas Jefferson was born on April 13, 1743 at Shadwell in Albemarle county, Virginia. As a member of the Continental Congress in 1776, Jefferson was chosen together with John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Robert Livingstone and Roger Sherman to draft the Declaration of Independence. The most notable achievement of Jefferson's first term as President (1800) was the purchase in 1803 of Louisiana from France for 15 million dollars. Jefferson was succeeded as president in 1809 by James Madison. During the last 17 years of his life, Jefferson remained in Virginia. As the 'Sage of Monticello' he engaged in a rich correspondence with John Adams and others. Jefferson's last great public service was the founding of the University of Virginia in 1819. He died at Monticello on July 4, 1826 on the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.
