Hampton, a noted historian of the Huntsville scene, will take us on a journey into the Huntsville of the 1950s and 1960s – decades when the Civil Rights movement came to the forefront in southern communities and the entire nation. There we will review the role that Huntsville and its citizens played during those tumultuous decades. We will meet through William Hampton’s personal recollections the characters that populated this era as the movement played out locally. We will pay tribute to Dr. Sonny Hereford, a leading player in the struggle for equal rights in education. We will learn of black and white leaders during this period; black businessmen, professionals and the working class, as well as white individuals who were supportive of the goals of the movement. Mr. Hampton’s interviews of local participants have given him profound insights into the changes that happened locally. We will also meet in person some individuals who witnessed these changes firsthand.

lqspring2017. 1-2:30 he French set a high water mark for exhibitions with their French Industrial Exposition in Paris during 1844. The British, not to be outdone, in 1851 held a “Great Exhibition of the works of Industry of All Nations” in Hyde Park, London. The jewel in the crown of that Fair being The Crystal Palace, the largest cast iron and plate glass structure ever built, up to then. The French responded in 1889 with a World's Fair which was entered by walking underneath the Eiffel Tower, then world's tallest man-made construction which had been erected for the Fair. The wonders of these Fairs and Exhibitions all heavily reported in American newspapers and magazines, fueled a growing desire that America show the world what she was capable of. And so, as many American cities began planning celebrations marking the 400th anniversary of Columbus discovering America, a national consensus coalesced that to honor the occasion America should also host a World's Fair better than any held before. But where? Several cities wanted it badly. And how could something so impressive be brought together quickly? The clock was ticking. Were they successful? What happened during the Fair, and then after?

This class is also open to anyone who is working on an individual project and wants to share time and tips with other crafters.

An overview of the designated historic districts will be presented as well as a look at some significant commercial buildings and other structures outside the designated districts. Photographs and other graphics will provide a visual journey through Huntsville’s past as well as a look into the future of what Huntsville may become. Even though Huntsville is fortunate to have several designated historic areas, one must understand that historic preservation is never a static event. Our community must remain vigilant if we want to preserve the history of Huntsville that is told through architecture. Participants of this course should be equipped to help neighbors, friends and colleagues understand the importance of our built environment.

The typical Photo SIG meetings will about two hours or a bit less. Meetings would be 1 per month on the 2nd week.
• Welcome of members and guests
• Club business (15 minutes for the "welcome and business")
• Photo/Tech Tip segment (brief technical tips on camera use or photographic technique)
• Main Presentation (30 to 60 minutes) done by a member or an outside speaker (might be a travel log, a technical presentation or a combination.
• Photo Essay (normally 15 minutes) highlights a member’s photography
• Photo Sharing by club members (30 minutes for sharing, and that totals up to about a 2- hour program)

Throughout the year we’ll have several photo field trips. Late in the year I hope members can hang a small exhibit in the Library. This promotes pride in our photography hobby. We’ll finish the year with a Potluck Lunch at an outside venue that a member provides. This SIG is a non-competitive environment that promotes the learning and enjoyment of photography as a wonderful pastime.

lqspring2017. 1-2:30 he French set a high water mark for exhibitions with their French Industrial Exposition in Paris during 1844. The British, not to be outdone, in 1851 held a “Great Exhibition of the works of Industry of All Nations” in Hyde Park, London. The jewel in the crown of that Fair being The Crystal Palace, the largest cast iron and plate glass structure ever built, up to then. The French responded in 1889 with a World's Fair which was entered by walking underneath the Eiffel Tower, then world's tallest man-made construction which had been erected for the Fair. The wonders of these Fairs and Exhibitions all heavily reported in American newspapers and magazines, fueled a growing desire that America show the world what she was capable of. And so, as many American cities began planning celebrations marking the 400th anniversary of Columbus discovering America, a national consensus coalesced that to honor the occasion America should also host a World's Fair better than any held before. But where? Several cities wanted it badly. And how could something so impressive be brought together quickly? The clock was ticking. Were they successful?

An overview of the designated historic districts will be presented as well as a look at some significant commercial buildings and other structures outside the designated districts. Photographs and other graphics will provide a visual journey through Huntsville’s past as well as a look into the future of what Huntsville may become. Even though Huntsville is fortunate to have several designated historic areas, one must understand that historic preservation is never a static event. Our community must remain vigilant if we want to preserve the history of Huntsville that is told through architecture. Participants of this course should be equipped to help neighbors, friends and colleagues understand the importance of our built environment.

lqspring2017. 1-2:30 he French set a high water mark for exhibitions with their French Industrial Exposition in Paris during 1844. The British, not to be outdone, in 1851 held a “Great Exhibition of the works of Industry of All Nations” in Hyde Park, London. The jewel in the crown of that Fair being The Crystal Palace, the largest cast iron and plate glass structure ever built, up to then. The French responded in 1889 with a World's Fair which was entered by walking underneath the Eiffel Tower, then world's tallest man-made construction which had been erected for the Fair. The wonders of these Fairs and Exhibitions all heavily reported in American newspapers and magazines, fueled a growing desire that America show the world what she was capable of. And so, as many American cities began planning celebrations marking the 400th anniversary of Columbus discovering America, a national consensus coalesced that to honor the occasion America should also host a World's Fair better than any held before. But where? Several cities wanted it badly. And how could something so impressive be brought together quickly? The clock was ticking. Were they successful? What happened during the Fair, and then after?

Description
lqspring2017. 1:30-2:30. This course will cover a variety of topics related to the development of various historical neighborhoods in Huntsville, their architectural styles and materials used. An overview of the designated historic districts will be presented as well as a look at some significant commercial buildings and other structures outside the designated districts. Photographs and other graphics will provide a visual journey through Huntsville’s past as well as a look into the future of what Huntsville may become. Even though Huntsville is fortunate to have several designated historic areas, one must understand that historic preservation is never a static event. Our community must remain vigilant if we want to preserve the history of Huntsville that is told through architecture. Participants of this course should be equipped to help neighbors, friends and colleagues understand the importance of our built environment.
