  • Counting the Votes: South Carolina's Stolen Election of 1876

    • Governors -- South Carolina -- Election.
    • Contested elections -- South Carolina -- History.
    • Hampton, Wade, 1818-1902.
    • Chamberlain, Daniel Henry, 1835-1907.
    Abstract:
      South Carolina's election of 1876 was rife with allegations of electoral intimidation and fraud.The presidential outcome and the future of Reconstruction hung in the balance.Although Democrat Wade Hampton apparently won the popular vote in the gubernatorial contest, a partisan Board of Canvassers, ultimately to no avail,declared Republican Daniel Chamberlain the victor after negating thousands of the ballots cast.Rigorous quantitative analysis suggests that the Board's adjustment of the vote was correct and that Chamberlain most probably wouldhave won had the election not been so corrupt.

  • Monastic Poor Relief in Sixteenth-Century England

    • Monasteries -- Great Britain -- History -- Henry VIII, 1509-1547.
    • Great Britain. Record Commission. Valor ecclesiasticus.
    Abstract:
      The amount of poor relief providedby religious houses and hospitals in pre-Reformation England on the eve of the Dissolution, as well as its proportion to income, can be retrieved from the government's fiscal assessment of the Church--the Valor Ecclesiasticus(1535). An accurate calculation, however, requires the use of a statistical methodology to model, and correct for, the bias inherent in the members of the commission appointedby the state to perform the audit.This novel approach to the Valor Ecclesiasticus,the only source for the data in question, extracts valuable information about the effect of the Dissolution on English society.

  • Generational Conflict in the Late Reformation: The Basel Paroxysm
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Reformation -- Switzerland -- Basel -- History.
    • Clergy -- Switzerland -- Basel -- Attitudes.
    • Lord's Supper -- History.
    Abstract:
      In 1571,the Basel Council ended a controversy over the Lord's Supper by requiring all of its pastors to accept the Wittenberg Concord along with a Zwinglian "Explication" written thirty-five years earlier. The church's leaders, who favored using ambiguous language acceptable to both Lutherans and Reformed to describe the Eucharist, were largely sympathetic to ties linking South Germany and Switzerland that dated back to the early sixteenth century. The younger pastors, however, were more inclined to identify themselves exclusively as Swiss, and therefore Zwinglian.The generation gap between the small number of older pastors and the much larger number of younger ones points to a new mindset among those clergy who would assume leadership of the Protestant church in the 1570s.

  • "Who Is the Captain of All These Men of Death?": The Social Structure of a Tuberculosis Sanatorium in Postwar Germany
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Tuberculosis -- Hospitals -- Germany -- History -- 1945-
    • Tuberculosis -- Patients -- Germany -- History -- 1945-
    • Social structure -- Germany.
    Abstract:
      The dynamic interaction of patients and medical practitioners has emerged as one of the more important questions in the the study of the history of medical institutions.The diary of the "Capri Pirates," a group of patients in a German tuberculosis sanitorium during the late 1950s, offers a unique view of patients' experience in long-term medical treatment.The secondary adaptation of patients, the effects of gender segregation and male bonding in patients' communities, andthe coexistence of medical and social hierarchies within institutions all demonstrate the benefits of an interdisciplinary agenda in the study of modern medicine.

  • New Approaches to Old Shanghai
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Lu, Hanchao. Beyond the neon lights: everyday life in early twentieth century Shanghai.
    • Shanghai (China) -- Social life and customs -- 20th century.
    Abstract:
      The study of Shanghai has become an increasingly prominent, international, and topically diverse sub-field within Sinology. Though much of the most interesting work has focused on the period from 1843 through 1943, when Shanghai was a subdivided treaty port, scholarship since the 1950s has seen important changes in theme and methodology. The availability of new archival materials in the 1980s had a dramatic effect on the analysis of the city's past,and a more comparative approach of late has placed Old Shanghai into a broadly international perspective.
