For his discoveries which originated the concept and developed the field of angiogenesis research, Folkman was awarded the Wolf Prize in Medicine in 1992.

Oxford: Basil Blackwell, 1956. Presumed First Edition, First printing Thus. Hardcover. Text is in German and English. xix/xixe, 196/196e, 197-204 (index) pages.

Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein (26 April 1889 – 29 April 1951) was an Austrian-British philosopher who worked primarily in logic, the philosophy of mathematics, the philosophy of mind, and the philosophy of language. From 1929 to 1947, Wittgenstein taught at the University of Cambridge. In spite of his position, during his entire life only one book of his philosophy was published, the relatively slim 75-page Logisch-Philosophische Abhandlung (Logical-Philosophical Treatise) (1921) which appeared, together with an English translation, in 1922 under the Latin title Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus. His only other published works were an article, "Some Remarks on Logical Form" (1929), a book review, and a children's dictionary. His voluminous manuscripts were edited and published posthumously. The remarks on the philosophy of mathematics and logic, which are published in this book, were written in the years 1937-1944. After that time, Wittgenstein did not again return to this topic. He had written a great deal on the subject in the period 1929 to roughly 1932. The tables of contents and the index are intended to help the reader to survey the whole, and also to make it easier to look up passages. The editors had the sole responsibility for the division of the material.

Includes Acknowledgments, List of Illustrations (21 black and white illustrations), Introduction, Index, and Bibliography. Nicholas Guy Pocock, was born on 1934 June 15 near London, England. When he was thirteen years old, Nicholas experienced his first airplane flight as a passenger, and decided to go into the aviation field. In 1952, at a mere seventeen years old, he had obtained his pilot’s license. After attending a technical college, Pocock joined the Royal Air Force as an instrument fitter. In the early 1960s, he began competing in various air shows around Europe. At one particular world aerobatics show in Czechoslovakia, Pocock met Waco pilot Frank Price. The two competitors quickly became good friends. In 1962, Pocock was named Great Britain’s Top Aerobatic Pilot. The following year, Pocock agreed to visit Waco to help Price with an air show the latter had organized. Pocock decided to stay after meeting his future wife, Alvena Prause Trull of China Spring. Upon settling in central Texas, Pocock continued to follow his passion for aviation. He flew for a crop-dusting division for Delta Airlines until a crash in 1964 temporarily placed him out of action. In addition to his experiences as a pilot, Pocock wrote two books, one concerning the Grumman/Schweizer AG-CAT aircraft and another pertaining to W.D. Custead, a man who claimed to have flown a “flying machine” near Elm Mott before the Wright Brothers’ flight in Kittyhawk, North Carolina. Pocock also served as a professor at T.S.T.C. for twenty years, retiring in 2005.

This article covers acute radiation syndrome in man. Includes information on the origin of data used for evaluation; dependency of the acute radiation syndrome on air dose; Dose range 51-100 r; Dose range 101-150 r; Dose range 151-200 r; Dose range 201-400 r; Dose range 401-600 r. Also includes information on the atomic bomb detonated over Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well as tables on acute radiation syndrome. Also discusses the role of penetrating ionizing radiation as a casualty-causing agent of acute radiation syndrome. From a comparative analysis of human data derived from nuclear accidents, Japanese bomb casualties, and radiotherapy patients, emerges the clinical picture of the acute radiation syndrome with its three subdivisions--hematopoietic, gastrointestinal, and cerebral forms. Since penetrating ionizing radiation represents a potential casualty-causing agent, problems facing the practical physician under catastrophic conditions are evaluated.

In the early years of the 20th century, Harvard Yard boasted probably as distinguished a group of great teachers and renowned thinkers as have ever been seen at any university before or since. In a series of sharp, incisive portraits which recapture the nostalgic flavor of that golden era at Harvard, Rollo Walter Brown tells the story of these famous educators. This work includes portraits of President Eliot, William James, "Copey", George Santayana, George P. Baker, George Lyman Kittredge, Dean Briggs, Josiah Royce, Hugo Munsterberg, Charles Eliot Norton, George Herbert Palmer, and Professor Nathaniel Shaler--all outstanding figures who come to life in the pages of this book. Rollo Walter Brown was a noted American author, novelist, lecturer, and faculty member. The author knew these men personally and has written a mellow and rewarding series of profiles on them.

Sources. Index. During World War II, eighty-eight of the almost three thousand Liberty ships built in the U.S. were launched in Savannah, Georgia. Few remember the Liberty ships today; fewer remember the shipyard or that the Southeastern Shipbuilding corporation was the largest industry ever located there. This social history tells the story of the men and women who built these merchant ships in Savannah. The demand for labor found women being recruited for construction jobs in a man's world, and performing as well as their fellow male workers. The war also brought African Americans into the shipbuilding industry, but in the segregated South they were not allowed to rise above the roles of custodians and "helpers." Tony Cope is a native of Savannah, Georgia, who retired after thirty years in public education, serving as a teacher, administrator, and creator and long-time Director of the award-winning education facility. He was featured in the book, "Movers and Shakers of Georgia". Cope has authored four books, "On the Swing Shift: Building Liberty Ships in Savannah",published by the Naval Institute Press in 2009, "The House on Gaston: A Savannah Childhood", published in 2013 " Stealing Stones", published in 2015 and "It's Not THAT Lincoln: The Curious Stories Behind Savannah's Historic Street Names" published in 2016; the latter three published by The Abercorn Press.
