This booklet was issued by the Ohio State Archaeological and Historical Society in response to a demand for a brief ouline of the main features of Prehistoric archaeology in Ohio. The various cultures collectively termed "Mound Builders" were prehistoric, indigenous inhabitants of North America who, during a 5,000-year period, constructed various styles of earthen mounds for religious, ceremonial, burial, and elite residential purposes. These included the pre-Columbian cultures of the Archaic period, Woodland period (Calusa culture, Adena and Hopewell cultures), and Mississippian period; dating from roughly 3500 BCE (the construction of Watson Brake) to the 16th century CE, and living in regions of the Great Lakes, the Ohio River Valley, and the Mississippi River valley and its tributary waters.

American Friends Service Committee, 1951. Presumed First Edition, First printing. Wraps. 64 pages. Cover has some wear and soiling. Includes Preface, Introduction, and Conclusion. Chapters cover What Are the Ultimate Objectives of the American People in International Affairs? Is Our Present Foreign Policy Leading Us to These Objectives?; Why Has Our Policy Failed? An Alternative Program, New Initiative for Peaceful Settlements, The Essential Role of the United Nations; Disarmament and the International Control of Arms; and Development of Large-Scale Programs of Mutual Aid. The authors of the report felt compelled to speak out of a deep sense of moral concern: Even if we had no knowledge of other nations, and no experience in struggling against evil, we should still feel compelled to speak out. For with increasing disturbance of soul we have watched the hardening of public opinion, and the easy acceptance of the doctrine of force. In the clamor and clash of a hating world, people are forgetting moral values, which are as relevant today as they were in Jesus' time. But even on pragmatic grounds, we reject the concept that peace can emerge from an arms race, or that problems can be solved by dropping A-bombs. Is there no answer to coercive communism other than coercive militarism? God forbid.

Illustrations. Table of Contents mis-bound with second page first. Cover has some wear and soiling. Marked For Official Use Only but given the passage of time and introduction of related information into the public domain, this limitation is understood to no longer apply. From the Introduction: Forty years after the introduction of nuclear weapons, information is still incomplete concerning the effects on man from ionizing radiation produced by those weapons. the information is important because radiation adversely affect both the combat performance effectiveness and the survivability of personnel. It is hoped that further knowledge will be gained from research such as that conducted by the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI). Research to define and manage the effects of ionizing radiation on military personnel is the primary responsibility of AFRRI. AFRRI, a unit of the Defense Nuclear Agency (DNA), is the principal radiobiology research laboratory for the Department of Defense.

Thomas Louis Berger (July 20, 1924 – July 13, 2014) was an American novelist. Probably best known for his picaresque novel Little Big Man and the subsequent film by Arthur Penn, Berger explored and manipulated many genres of fiction throughout his career, including the crime novel, the hard-boiled detective story, science fiction, the utopian novel, plus re-workings of classical mythology, Arthurian legend, and the survival adventure. Berger's biting wit led many reviewers to refer to him as a satirist or "comic" novelist, descriptions he preferred to reject. His admirers often bemoaned that his talent and achievement were under-appreciated, in view of his versatility across many forms of fiction, his precise use of language, and his probing intelligence. Berger enlist in the United States Army in 1943. Berger served in Europe, and was stationed with a medical unit in the first U.S. Occupation Forces in Berlin, experiences which later provided him with background for his first novel, Crazy in Berlin, published in 1958. Berger devoted himself to writing full-time, particularly after the notoriety gained by his third book, Little Big Man, in 1964.

Missing small corner of first page. Stamp and notation on front page. Stamp of Donald J. Kimeldorf, renowned radiation scientist, on front pate. Dr. Patt was with the Medical Field Research Laboratory at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina when he authored this work. He subsequently joined the Argonne National Laboratory. Dr. Patt became a leading figure in radiation research. In this study, an attempt was made to evaluate certain possible tests of fitness by correlating the scores obtained on these tests with performance in a fatigue run. It was hoped in this way to obtain some idea of the prognostic value of the various tests. A number of physical fitness tests--step-up, oxyhemoglobin reduction time, tilt table, Army Air Forces dynamometer and body sway, were administered. It was believed that participation in the types of exercises involved to the point where the subject signified his inability to continue would present a fairly reliable estimate of fitness if the group were sufficiently motivated. FIfty-one of the 105 men participating in the fatigue test were unable to complete the 18 1/4 hour run (Fail Group). Over 70 per cent of the pass group believed that they could have continued beyond the termination point of the test. The step-up test, body sway, and the medical officers' average rating were the only measures which yielded a significant biserial correlation with performance. The volunteer test subjects were hospital corpsmen and marines.

Includes 11 illustrations between pages 142 and 143, as well as two Black and White maps (Attack on the Tirpitz, and Tirpitz Berth). An account of a secret World War II mission unparalleled in the annals of the sea. Thomas Gallagher's account of the gallant and almost unbelievable expedition of British midget submarines to attack and disable the German battleship Tirpitz is one of the great stories to come out of World War II. The Tirpitz was the mightiest naval vessel in all of Europe. When the Germans slipped her into the fjords of occupied Norway in January 1942, she became an overwhelming menace to Allied shipping. Her presence made it impossible for British battleships and aircraft carriers needed in the Pacific to get there. All attempts to destroy her had failed. Churchill and many others felt that she was one of the two or three most crucial problems of the war. Churchill demanded a new weapon. The result was the British X-craft, or midget submarine, and a secret mission against the battleship that was a thousand times the X-craft's size. Gallagher gives the story an unremitting tension, and his material remains fascinating down to the postscripts. This book is at once a mystery and a social document. Readers will be impressed with this coldly surgical dissection of human frailty and the breakdown of human values when leadership fails in a crisis.

Psychological Reports, 1968. Xerox type reprint from Psychological Reports 1973, 33. Stapled at upper left corner. Pages, iii-iv, 24 pages. Figures. Tables. References. The name T. L. Pitchford was written on the front page, perhaps indicating authorship. Psychological Reports is a bimonthly peer-reviewed academic journal covering research in psychology and psychiatry. It was established by Robert and Carol H. Ammons in 1955. This study provides extensive data on a wide range of radiation dose levels applied to a statistically significant number of beagle dogs. From a military standpoint the results of this research are an important contribution to the data on the time and duration of incapacitation resulting from exposures to ionizing radiation. The fact that none of the beagle dogs used in these experiments sowed any early transient incapacitation (ETI) at any dose level illustrates the differences in response that must be considered in evaluating the data obtained from animal experiments. Animals exposed to 40 krads or more generally suffered complete incapacitation within minutes of irradiation and remained in that state until succumbed. The dose response data for man are expected to assume greater validity if they are based on experiments using a variety of experimental animals.

Kimeldorf stamped at top right corner. Both authors were associated with the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission. Science, also widely referred to as Science Magazine, is the peer-reviewed academic journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and one of the world's top academic journals. It was first published in 1880. William Curry Moloney, MD, who studied and treated blood diseases before hematology became a medical specialty, was a professor emeritus of medicine at Harvard Medical School and former director of hematology at Brigham and Women's Hospital. He was one of the first hematologists to use chemotherapy to treat leukemia and lymphoma. Dr. Moloney was also an early contributor to the development of specific diagnostic tests, some of which are still in use today. Dr. Moloney was a recognized authority on safe procedures for blood transfusions, and his expertise in blood banks stood him in good stead in World War II, when he oversaw transfusions to wounded soldiers. After the war, in the early 1950s, Dr. Moloney directed research for the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission in Hiroshima, Japan. Later, in the Marshall Islands, he studied the effects of errant radiation and the mechanisms that produce leukemia. Kastenbaum worked for 17 months as a statistician with the ABCC. This work established the statistical evidence that the incidence of leukemia is 'high' at distances close to the hypocenter,and normal at distances of 2500 m or more.
