6 (A.M. Byers Company) ICE SKATING RINKS - THEIR CONSTRUCTION AND MAINTENANCE. Report of a Study Made by Engineering Service Department, A.M. Byers Company, Ambridge, Pennsylvania
Ambridge, Pennsylvania: A.M. Byers Company, [circa 1965]. [circa 1965]. Very good Signed
Ambridge, Pennsylvania: A.M. Byers Company, [circa 1965].. [circa 1965].. Very good. - Quarto, 11 inches high by 8-1/2 inches wide. Softcover, bound in stapled wraps titled with a black & white illustration of the Yale University Hockey Rink with exposed piping on the front cover. The corners of the covers are slightly creased. 32 pages, profusely illustrated throughout. Very good.

From the Skating Library of Arthur N. Foxe, with his stamp on the front endpaper. A psychiatrist and criminologist, Dr. Foxe was an avid collector of skating books and even published a skating bibliography.

A typed letter signed by R.D. James, manager of Engineering at A.M. Byers is laid in as well as a four-fold flyer listing the company's eastern distributors.

The report includes summaries of the company's studies of the Rockefeller Center Plaza Rink in NYC, the Chicago Stadium, the St. Paul Municipal Auditorium in St. Paul, Minnesota, The Chandler Park Rink in Detroit, the Sam Houston Coliseum in Houston, Texas, Madison Square Garden, and so on.

Producers of Wrought Iron, the A.M Byers Company opened its plant in Ambridge, Pennsylvania in 1930, shortly after the start of the Great Depression. The company was known for its Byers Process of manufacturing wrought iron to assure production of the metal in quantity while maintaining quality control and uniformity. A multi-ethnic employer, the company drew on a work-force of unemployed coal workers and others affected by the depression, hiring many first and second-generation immigrants. The fire, smoke and sparks from its furnaces and stacks were an early attraction along Route 88. Though the company's business dwindled briefly in the mid-thirties, it boomed again during the war thanks to defense contracts. Post-war production slumped and the company eventually closed in 1969.

Kennedy Space Center: NASA, 1970. 1970. Very good Signed
Kennedy Space Center: NASA, 1970.. 1970.. Very good. "HOUSTON, WE'VE HAD A PROBLEM...." - A genuine original 2-5/8 inch high by 4 inch wide launch ticket for NASA's Apollo 13 mission. Housed in a clear badge holder with a metal clip on the verso, the badge, printed on white card stock is illustrated in color with the Apollo 13 mission insignia depicting 3 flying horses orbiting the moon with the sun in the background. The words "Apollo XIII: Ex Luna, Scientia" are printed along the circumference. "Kennedy Space Center, NASA" is centered at the top of the badge and the letter "B" is boldly stamped at bottom right. The verso, with a light blue NASA seal at the center welcomes dignitaries with the words: "The National Aeronautics and Space Administration cordially welcomes you to the launch of Apollo 13. ... This credential is issued to the bearer for his sole, exclusive, personal use and is not transferable. After launch, it may be kept as a souvenir of the mission." Signed in print by Kennedy Space Center Director Kurt H. Debus, this ticket is numbered "3110" in blue at bottom right of the verso. There is some minor soiling with staple holes through the bottom left. Very good.

Provenance: From the estate of Vice President Spiro Agnew's Chief of Staff Art Sohmer.

Vice President Spiro Agnew, together with German Chancellor Willy Brandt watched the Apollo 13 launch. Agnew brought congratulations to the firing room crew from President Nixon: "As we go into the future considering the awe-inspiring task of sorting out our national priorities, one thing is certain: A program which has been as successful, as efficient, and as economical as this one has been must be carried forward".

Intended as the third moon landing, Apollo 13 was supposed to land in the Fra Mauro area of the moon. With James A. Lovell Jr., Fred W. Haise Jr. and John L Swigert Jr., the mission launched on April 11, 1970. Despite feeling a little vibration and one of the engines shutting down a little early, all appeared fine until April 13th when, within nine minutes of signing off from a TV broadcast which the crew had been filming, one of the oxygen tanks blew up causing the other to also fail. Swiggert, seeing a warning light, first reported it followed seconds later by Lovell's now famous phrase "Houston, we've had a problem". The phrase was later misquoted as "Houston, we have a problem" and popularized in the film starring Tom Hanks.

"Henry M. Sayre...defines [American art since 1970] in terms of its shared, distinctly postmodern concerns, showing for the first time how the entire range of contemporary art--including dance, photography, oral poetry, performance art, and earth sculpture--is associated in a collective avant-garde project. What artists like Cindy Sherman, Andy Warhol, Laurie Anderson, David Antin, and Robert Smithson have in common, Sayre convincingly argues, is a view of art as primarily performative.'

Karale Andreassen [1890-1934] was a native of Eastern Greenland. His father was a great necromancer and had many strange experiences with spirits from the ancient Eskimo tradition--the Mother of the Sea, the Queen of the Winds, the Stone Trolls. Andreassen's father described these and other spirits to his son so vividly, that Andreassen was able to conjure them up in his art many years later. These drawings depict a necromancer and his dealings with the spirits.
