      NOTE:

      Materials in brackets are my additions. Items are listed more or less in reverse chronological order within each section. All links are presumably working at the time I send this email. Many of the articles listed are printed in other Alabama newspapers; in general, I do not attempt to list all appearances of an article. Some dates given are those when the item was posted to the newspaper or magazine web site. Some items are listed without links because I either could not find online versions or could not find a free one.

      Feel free to forward this email as desired....

      WARNING: Many articles on newspaper and magazine web sites are accompanied by nasty, anonymous comments about individuals and subjects in the posted articles. Some articles in these listings will unfortunately include such commentary.

      AND NOW THE NEWS...

      Additional articles can often be found at Google, Topix or Yahoo news sites:

      http://news.google.com/

      http://www.topix.net/

      http://news.yahoo.com/

      Please note that many articles continue beyond the single web page I have linked here. Web sites related to some articles often appear in the "Bonus Material" section.

      **Society of Alabama Archivists Annual Meeting Auburn, October 9 http://alarchivists.org/
      The SALA luncheon speaker, Dr. Gary Mullen, professor of entomology and plant pathology at Auburn University, will discuss the Alabama interests of British naturalist Philip Henry Gosse. Beginning in May, 1838, Gosse spent eight months in Dallas County. In 1855 he first published his natural history of Alabama's Black Belt in a series of letters to the magazine Home Friend. In 1859 the same material appeared in Letters from Alabama. In addition, Gosse produced a sketch book which he entitled Entomologia Alabamensis, which contains 48 water-color paintings of insects, more than 230 individual images, many of them butterflies and moths. The original sketch book resides in the British Library, but in 1993 the Auburn University Libraries obtained color transparencies of the original drawings. Dr. Mullen will illustrate his lecture with images from Entomologia Alabamensis. Recently, the Auburn University Libraries and Auburn University's Jule Collins Smith Museum of Art obtained permission from the British Library to reproduce the images on an upcoming website and in a volume upcoming from the University of Alabama Press. The latter will serve as the Auburn University Libraries ceremonial three millionth volume.
