Constructing Privileged Landscapes In 19th Century Southern New England (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Christopher Douyard.

Alix W. Stanley spent the early 20th century purchasing old family properties in the ‘Stanley Quarter’ section of New Britain, Connecticut. The properties, owned by Stanley family members from 1644 through the mid-18th century, provided his ancestors the ability to generate considerable wealth, some of which Alix’s father used to create the Stanley Tool and Die Company.

The Monumentality of Clam Gardens in the Southern Gulf Islands, British Columbia (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Eric McLay.

As large-scale community works, clam gardens must be...
