Abandoned Suitcases Reveal Private Lives of Patients | From the 1910s through the 1960s, many patients at the Willard Asylum for the Chronic Insane left suitcases behind when they passed away, with nobody to claim them. After learning of the Willard suitcases, Jon Crispin sought the museum’s permission to document each case and its contents.

Willard Asylum Cases - In 1995, the New York State Office of Mental Health closed the Willard Psychiatric Center in Willard, NY. Behind an attic door was a collection of over 400 suitcases containing the possessions of former patients. Acquired for the New York State Museum, I was determined to photograph these cases so others could experience what I felt. - Jon Crispin

Vivien T. Thomas. In 1944, Hopkins' surgery chief, Alfred Blalock, successfully operated on the heart of a 9-pound child, a "blue baby." Medical experts believed cardiac surgery was impossible. As Blalock prepared to make his historic incision, he looked around the operating room and asked, "Where's Vivien?" Blalock would not begin until Thomas, stationed on a stool behind his right shoulder, was there to guide Blalock through procedures. Prejudice long kept Thomas' crucial role unacknowledged.

Black History Month: Vivien Thomas (1910-1985)
Vivien T. Thomas was an African-American surgical technician who developed the procedures used to treat blue baby syndrome in the 1940s. Without any education past high school, Thomas rose above poverty and racism to become a cardiac surgery pioneer and a teacher of operative techniques to many of the country's most prominent surgeons. Vivien Thomas was the first African American without a doctorate to perform open heart surgery on a white patient in the United States.

1945 - F.D. Roosevelt had died. Ed Clark drove to cover the news but found swarms of photographers trying to get the best view of FDR's coffin. Clark heard one of Roosevelt's favorite hymns Goin'Home being played on an accordion. He snapped a shot of Navy bandsman Gordon Jackson with tears streaming down his face as he played. No one else had seen what Clark had seen, and his dramatic photograph became the symbol of a nation in grief. This photo took up an entire page in the next issue of LIFE.

Online Dating: Long before dating sites, miniature portraits were made to show people how prospective partners looked when they lived far away. This is Anne of Cleves painted by Holbein for Henry VIII although he wasn't as satisfied when he saw her profile in the flesh.

Anne of Cleves, by Hans Holbein. This picture was painted so that King Henry VIII could get a look at his 4th wife whom he had agreed to marry before he had ever met her. According to history when Henry finally met her he was disappointed with her looks saying that "she looks like a horse." Historians believe however that she most likely was one of the better looking of his wives.
Online Dating: Long before dating sites, miniature portraits were made to show people how prospective partners looked when they lived far away. This is Anne of Cleves painted by Hans Holbein for Henry VIII. Just as today. her portrait was obviously "touched up" Henry rejected her when he met her in the flesh.
"Why Anne of Cleves is My Favorite Wife of Henry VIII Anne of Cleves was certainly not the prettiest of Henry’s wives, nor the smartest, the most accomplished, the most devout, the most influential. When she came to England in 1540, she spoke no English, knew no dances, did not play cards or gamble, and was entirely unprepared for the role she had been selected to occupy. Anne was queen for for only six months, the shortest tenure of any of Henry’s wives. In her short reign, she altered nothing, no single aspect of life in England. She did not bear any children by Henry; she would never become a mother. She was not even the longest-lived of the six wives, nor was she the only one to outlive her spouse. She spent the remaining years of her life in peaceful obscurity, and remains known today as little more than the controversial, awkward, and ugly fourth wife, a footnote in Tudor history. But Anne, for all her perceived shortcomings, retains one superlative: she is by far the most fortunate of Henry’s wives. Though humiliation and indignation might have prompted her to fight for her crown and title, the unfortunate examples of Henry’s previous wives checked Anne before she reacted against her own interests. By gracefully abdicating her marriage and relinquishing her claim to the throne without incident, Anne freed Henry to make yet another match — his fifth— and thus ensured his gratitude for her cooperation. Henry was unused to his wives placating him; the stubbornness of both Katherine of Aragon and Anne Boleyn had conditioned him to expect the worst of women. Anne’s acquiescence and quiet withdrawal earned her almost universal respect and prompted widespread dismay from those who viewed her as a merciful, meritorious queen. That Anne evaded Henry’s displeasure and kept her head is is enough to call her the luckiest of the six queens. But her further decision to take her destiny into her own hands is yet more proof of her wisdom and courage. Upon the annulment of her marriage, Anne was expected to return to her homeland, and encouraged to do so by her brother, Duke William of Cleves. Rather than return to live a subservient life — and consequently, enter the European marriage market a second time — Anne chose to remain in England. Henry bestowed a number of estates, a generous pension, and eminence over every lady at court (save his future wives) upon Anne, in gratitude for her compliance. This wealth would ensure Anne’s comfort for the remainder of her life in England, but would be forfeit to the crown should she return to Cleves. Faced with dependency and uncertainty if she left, as well as the possibility of yet another unhappy marriage, Anne made the brave (and controversial) decision to remain an unmarried lady of means in her adopted land. A woman who remained single for her entire life was considered, at the time, a pitiable figure; she had no husband, no sons, no male protection. A woman divorced (or in Anne’s case, annulled) was a sadder case still. She had been publicly humiliated; the dissolution of her marriage was a matter of public speculation and titillation. But Anne’s remarkable optimism and the good humor with which she accepted her new station in life were evident of an attitude well advanced for her time. Rather than slink away from court in shame, Anne reveled in her new title as “King’s Beloved Sister.” She wore expensive and beautiful gowns and glittering jewels. She learned contemporary English dances, how to gamble, and how to play cards. She employed the best musicians and cooks, and her table was renowned. She lived primarily as a private noblewoman, though she did appear at court for holidays and coronations. Since, as a single lady, she had no children of her own, Anne “adopted” Henry’s younger daughter, Elizabeth, bereft of a mother since Anne Boleyn’s execution four years earlier. Anne emerged from the trial that could very well have ended her life unscathed, not by the intervention of any savior, but by using her wits and agreeable personality to save her skin. Yet, her joie de vivreand optimism make her so relatable and worthy of emulation. She was a proponent of feminism long before feminism was a concept. And as one of a string of women who experienced unhappy marriages to the same man, Anne was one of only two survivors, and the only one who, by all accounts, lived a happy and fulfilling life. We often hear the poem “divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived.” I would argue that, of the six, Anne of Cleves is the only one who truly lived." From mameshiba.tumblr.com

King Henry the Eighth to Cardinal Wolsey. [ 1518 ] My lord cardinal, I recommend unto you as heartily as I can, and I am right glad to hear of your good health, which I pray God may long continue. So it is that I have received your letters, to the which (by cause they ask long writing) I have made answer by my secretary. Two things there be which be so secret that they cause me at this time to write to you myself; the one is that I trust the queen my wife be with child........
As part of the peace treaty, a husband was found for 2-year old Princess Mary. This was the Dauphin of France, François, born on 28th February, 1518, making him 2 years younger than Princess Mary (born 18th February, 1516).Then the betrothal, which was part of the treaty with France, was arranged as part of the ceremonies arranged by Cardinal Wolsey.Queen Katherine was pregnant again, and a letter that Henry VIII wrote to Wolsey in June 1518, shows his concern for her health.

No doubt, too, that the Kelch eggs cost them considerably more than those made for the Imperial family, given the parsimony of the Romanovs and the generosity of the nouveaux riches. The seven Kelch eggs are as fine, if not even more sumptuous, than those in the Imperial series.”

First seismograph - The first equipment to predict earthquaques was invented by an outstanding chinese scientist named Zhang Heng on AD 132.

Not the original. However this design is the first earthquake detector. Invented about AD 130 by Chinese scholar Chang Heng. The balls held in the dragons mouths were aligned with a pendulum inside the vase and when an earthquake occurred the pendulum swung and pushed the balls into the mouths of the frogs. If the frogs facing north or south contained balls then they could say that the earthquake epicenter was north or south of the instrument. ☂VA

In 132 CE( common era , same as AD) after several serious earthquakes in China, astronomer Zhang Heng invented this instrument to warn people of the next one. When the ground shook, it moved a pendulum inside the jug. The pendulum pushed a lever that opened one dragon's mouth. A ball rolled out and into the toad's mouth below, sounding an alarm. The open dragon mouth pointed in the direction of the earthquake, notifying the Emperor.
