Britt Kennerly: Rosies, we owe tons of thanks - Florida Today

Wed, Feb 22, 2012
Moran was born in 1924 in Madrid, Ala. The mother of Bruce Moran of Mims, she was an airplane riveter during the war years, something her obituary says she “was most proud of.” Myrtle Meade Fitzgerald, of Titusville, who died at the “grand age of 100” on Aug. 29, 2011. A native Kentuckian, she moved to Brevard in the 1990s. Fitzgerald worked in factories as a Rosie, said her son, Paul Salisbury of Titusville. “Rosies and Volunteer Rosies performed jobs that were absolutely essential. They donated scraps. They bought war bonds. They really changed the face of the war effort,” said Donnaleen Lanktree of Rochester Hills, Mich., ARRA president and the daughter of a Rosie. “I can’t imagine my 5-foot-1-inch mother working as a riveter. ... She always said the best thing about the war was that women got to wear slacks.” Whatever their contributions, Rosies showed the world what a woman could and would do given the opportunity to pitch in — many while raising families, working other jobs or going to school. It’s estimated that Rosies and the men they worked alongside built 80,000 landing craft, 100,000 tanks, 300,000 aircraft, 15 million guns, 44 billion rounds of small-arms ammunition. In the process, these women assembled a legacy of incredible strength, grace, spirit and ingenuity. What better way to build on the past than to share Rosies’ stories while we still can? ...

Monument brings back memories - Akron Beacon Journal

Wed, Jan 11, 2012
The new monument “looks great,” he said. “Everyone is tickled with it.” The hotel, known as a “business with a soul,” was where entertainers like Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington and others stayed when they played at the nightclubs on the street. Because of racial prejudice, the entertainers were unable to stay at other Akron hotels, Horns said. Alberta Banton Williams, 73, lived the first eight years of her life in the hotel. Her father ran a hat business at the rear of the barbershop and beauty salon, she said. Along with cleaning and blocking hats, her father, Elmore Banton, who died in 1955, answered phones at the hotel and would clean up at night, she said. George Mathews and his wife were her godparents, she said, and she was named after George’s wife, Alberta. “The black barbershop is part of the black culture, where men would get together and talk,” said Williams, who taught school in Akron, lived in New York for four decades and now lives in Copley Township. “I remember buses coming with orchestras and singers … It was an exciting place.” The monument brings back memories for Deborah Williams, 62, of Akron. Her mother, Naomi Blake, was the last one to leave the beauty shop before the hotel closed, she said. Blake worked as a hair stylist for about a half century in Akron, mostly at the hotel. Jeffrey Bray, 67, of Akron, also has a connection to the hotel. His mother, the late Janice Bray, was responsible for booking the entertainers at the High Hat Lounge until she bought the club in 1971. It closed in the late 1970s. His father, the late Leon Bray, was a drummer who played at the High Hat a few times. Bray also is a drummer who sat in with musician Lou Donaldson at the age of 15 for one song and watched many jazz greats who played at the High Hat, including Jimmy Smith, Wes Montgomery, Dizzy Gillespie and Max Roach. Playing with Donaldson, he said, “was unbelievable, a good feeling.” News of the monument also brought back memories for Martyn Flunoy, 59, of Akron, who has a booklet for a black rubber industry employers group called the Alpha Omego club. The booklet marked the Sepia Rubber Carnival, held on March 27, 1941. His late mother, Blanche Flunoy, a factory worker at B.F. Goodrich, had collected the booklet. Inside the booklet, he found an advertisement for Banton’s hat shop that included a picture of the hotel. Flunoy, who works at Kent State University and plays drums with the Bizarros, remembers buying albums and singles at record stores on North Howard Street when he was a teenager. “It looks great,” he said of the monument. There’s some discrepancy as to the spelling of the hotel name over the years. While the inscription on the monument is spelled Hotel Matthews with two t’s and the owner George Mathews spelled his name with one, in his 1982 obituary, the name of the hotel was spelled Mathews. A photograph of the hotel in the 1941 booklet owned by Flunoy also spelled the name of the hotel as Mathews. But a 1930 photograph of the hotel on the Akron website shows the inscription on the hotel as Hotel Matthews. In her Akron home, Louise Jackson has an entire wall of family photos. Some are some pictures from the hotel, including one showing her at a dinner at the hotel. Jackson said Mathews treated everyone who worked at the hotel as family. “He loved people,” she said. “...

Josef Skvorecky, Czech-Born Writer, Dies at 87

Thu, Jan 5, 2012
He also wrote for film and television and translated American classics into Czech, having been drawn to American literature from an early age, particularly to Hemingway, Fitzgerald and Twain. After leaving Czechoslovakia during the Soviet suppression of the “Prague Spring” in 1968, Mr. Skvorecky taught American literature at the University of Toronto, where he also wrote of the émigré life and of Western students with no sense of history. Over the next two decades he and his wife, Zdena Salivarova, a writer and actress, published several hundred books that had been banned in their home country, sustaining Czech literature while introducing it to an international readership. With Mr. Kundera, Mr. Skvorecky shared a fascination with the private lives of people shadowed by the heavyhanded police state, seeking pleasures — whether those of friendship, music or sex — in an otherwise joyless political climate. Mr. Skvorecky spoke of his own experience in the introduction to his novella “The Bass Saxophone”: “In the days when everything in life was fresh — because we were 16, 17 — I used to blow tenor sax. Very poorly. Our band was called Red Music, which in fact was a misnomer, since the name had no political connotations: there was a band in Prague that called itself Blue Music and we, living in the Nazi Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia, had no idea that in jazz blue is not a color, so we called ours Red. But if the name itself had no political connotations, our sweet, wild music did; for jazz was a sharp thorn in the sides of the power-hungry men, from Hitler to Brezhnev, who successfully ruled in my native land.” Josef Vaclav Skvorecky, who had the look of a stolid burgher with eyes that seemed always preparing to smile, was born in Nachod, Bohemia, in what was then Czechoslovakia, on Sept. 27, 1924. His father was a bank clerk. A playmate was Milos Forman, who went on to fame as the director of films like “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and “Amadeus.” Michael T. Kaufman, a former correspondent for The Times, died in 2010. Daniel E. Slotnik contributed reporting. (New York Times)
