Henry Burt Wright

Henry Burt Wright (1877-1923) is an American professor from Yale University whose writings influenced, among others, Frank Buchman, and subsequently the work he developed under the name of Oxford Group, later Moral Rearmament.
Biography[edit]
Henry Burt Wright was born on 29 January 1877 in New Haven, Connecticut. He was the second son of Henry Parks Wright, who was the first dean of Yale University and of Martha Burt.[1]
His academic career included a BA in 1898 and a PhD in 1903, both from Yale. He became a Tutor of Greek and Latin in Yale from 1903 to 1906, instructor from 1906 to 1907, assistant professor of Roman History and Latin Literature from 1908 to 1911, assistant professor of History from 1911-1914 and, from 1914 on, Stephen M. Clement Professor of Christian Methods at Yale Divinity School.[1]
While studying, he was the Secretary of the Yale YMCA from 1898 to 1901. He was also an Army YMCA chaplain at Camp Deven in 1917-1918.[1] Henry Burt Wright married Josephine L. Hayward on 24 July 2007.[1] He died in Oakham on 27 December 1923.[1]
Legacy[edit]
His influence was however made wider by the publication of his book The Will of God and A Man’s Lifework (New York: Association Press, 1924). It was copyrighted in 1909. Its studies were originally prepared by laymen to meet the needs of students in the Association Bible Classes for Seniors of the Academic and Scientific Departments of Yale University.
Several writers have pointed out that Henry B. Wright had been one of the major influences on Oxford Group founder Dr. Frank N.D. Buchman.[2] While based at Hartford, teaching and gathering his team, Buchman used to travel four hours each way, once a week, to attend Wright’s lectures at Yale.[3] Many of the ideas later promoted by Buchman appear to be borrowed from Wright.[4]
Yale Dininity School chair of Systematic Theology is named after him. The current holder of Yale University’s Henry B. Wright Professor of Systematic Theology chair is Croatian Protestant theologian Miroslav Volf.

Johnston and Palmyra are two US-controlled atolls located in the Pacific Ocean. Johnston had been claimed for the US in 1858, Palmyra in 1859; both under the Guano Islands act. Following the Attack on Pearl Harbor, Japanese navy forces attacked Allied possessions across the Pacific, including Johnston and Palmyra.

Background[edit]
Both islands had been obtained through the Guano Islands Act of 1856, although Palmyra was void of Guano. The lack of guano caused Palmyra to pass through the ownership of many different groups throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. Johnston and Palmyra were placed under US Navy control in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. Both islands were garrisoned and Johnston served as a refueling station for passing US Navy ships. Although an airfield was under construction on Johnston, the only aircraft present on the island were Navy PBY patrol planes, usually anchored offshore.
Johnston became noticeable to the Japanese command because of its location. Although it was too close to Hawaii to be amphibiously assaulted, it was near the major Japanese air base in the Marshall Islands. The executive officer of the 1st Marine Defense Battalion, Major Francis B. Loomis, had arrived on Johnston on December 7, 1941. He had been returning by air from an inspection of the American outposts in the Pacific when Pearl Harbor had been attacked. He then took control of the island’s garrison.
Following news of the Attack on Pearl Harbor, the civilian contractors already present on Johnston began to building more emplacements for the Marines’ guns and positions. Six US Navy ships were also on Johns

Sir Harry Ralph Ricardo (26 January 1885 – 18 May 1974) was one of the foremost engine designers and researchers in the early years of the development of the internal combustion engine.
Among his many other works, he improved the engines that were used in the first tanks, oversaw the research into the physics of internal combustion that led to the use of octane ratings, was instrumental in development of the sleeve valve engine design, and invented the Diesel “Comet” Swirl chamber that made high-speed diesel engines economically feasible.

Harry Ricardo was born at 13 Bedford Square, London in 1885, the eldest of three children, and only son of Halsey Ricardo, the architect, and his wife Catherine Jane, daughter of Sir Alexander Meadows Rendel, a civil engineer. Ricardo was descended from a brother of the famous political economist David Ricardo, a Sephardi Jew of Portuguese origin (hence the last name). He was one of the first people in England to see an automobile when his grandfather purchased one in 1898. He was from a relatively wealthy family and educated at Rugby School. In October 1903 he joined Trinity College, Cambridge as a civil engineering student. Ricardo had been using tools and building engines since the age of ten.[2]
Marriage[edit]
In 1911 Ricardo married Beatrice Bertha Hale, an art student at the Slade School of Art, in London. Her father, Charles Bowdich Hale, was the Ricardos’ family doctor. They had three daughters, an

William Augustus Hall

William Augustus Hall

William Augustus Hall (October 15, 1815 – December 15, 1888) was an American politician who served as a member of the United States House of Representatives. He is the brother of Governor and Representative Willard Preble Hall and also the father of Representative Uriel Sebree Hall.

Early years[edit]
Born in Portland, Maine, on October 15, 1815, Hall moved with his family to Harpers Ferry, Virginia at a young age and attended the local schools there. He attended Yale College, relocated to Missouri in 1840, and was admitted to the bar there in 1841.
Political life[edit]
Hall was a Captain in the U.S.-Mexican War.
He served as judge of the Circuit Court in Missouri from 1847–1861, and as delegate to the Missouri Constitutional Convention in 1861. That same year he was elected to the 37th Congress as a replacement for John Bullock Clark, who had been expelled from Congress for taking up arms against the United States. He was elected on his own merit in 1862 and served from January 20, 1862 until March 4, 1865. He did not seek an additional term in 1864.
In 1855, he was the judge who presided over the trial of Celia, the 19 year old pregnant slave woman who was on trial for the alleged murder (in self defense) of her master, who had been sexually abusing her for years. In response to the defenses’ motion that the 1845 law protecting “any woman” legally entitled Celia to defend herself from a would-be rapist the same as a white woman, Hall instructed the jury that a slave had no right to resist her master, even in the case of sexual assault. The jury subsequently found Celia guilty and sentenced her to death.
He served as a delegate to the Democratic National Convention in 1864.
Later years[edit]
After his term in Congress ended, Hall returned to the practice of law. He died near Darksville, Missouri on December 15, 1888, and was buried in a family plot.
