When a quote is not (exactly) a quote: The Business of America is Business Edition
Many people have likely heard a quote attributed to President Calvin Coolidge, “The business of America is business,” but this is a misquote. The real quote is a little bit different and the context in which it was said is not likely what most would expect. The actual quote wasn’t necessarily a simple, catchy line. […] [ + ]

Researching Old Companies: a Business Class on January 19
The Library offers Saturday orientations/classes and sometimes Business takes their turn. When We took our turn last June, instead of doing our general Business Research Orientation, I taught a class titled So…you want to research old companies at the Library of Congress. It was the first time I gave this class and because there was […] [ + ]

Tearooms, “A Very Profitable Undertaking”
While looking for advertisements in back issues of Good Housekeeping from the early 20th century, I ran across two fun articles about businesses for women in the June 1911 issue. They caught my eye because we have done several posts touching on women in the workforce. Nancy Lovas wrote one looking at WWI and my […] [ + ]

“Every Eatable Necessary to Complete New Year’s Dinner”
I hope everyone has done their food shopping for their New Year’s Day feasts. In 1918, the Perth Amboy Evening News was doing its part to help shoppers by running this advertisement on December 27th for the Perth Amboy City Market (owned and operated by Morris M. Shumsky and William P. Shumsky). It was designed […] [ + ]

Final Bits of New Orleans-related Lagniappe
The celebration for the New Orleans tricentennial is drawing to a close. While I think we covered a number of New Orleans business history topics, there were so many stories that I didn’t get around to telling! While doing some research, I found a great quote that felt appropriate to include in a final tricentennial […] [ + ]

New Orleans Then and Now: the Skyline
Like skylines in all cities, New Orleans’ skyline has changed quite a bit over its history. In the 300 years since the city’s founding, buildings have gotten taller and the city has spread beyond its original boundaries. In this post I thought I would feature photos that have more of a birds-eye view of the […] [ + ]

Supplying the Great War
This post was written by Kelsey Diemand Librarian in Residence in the Science, Technology and Business Division. This month, we have commemorated the centennial of the end to the Great War. The Armistice of 11 November 1918 effectively stopped the fighting between Germany and the Allied forces after four years of violence, destruction, and chaos. […] [ + ]

St. Charles Avenue’s Streetcar
It seems that no book, movie, TV show, or play about New Orleans passes up the opportunity to feature the New Orleans streetcar in some way. I wanted to make sure Inside Adams published something on it during our tricentennial celebration and my post about Charles Zimpel only touched on the New Orleans and Carrollton […] [ + ]

One of NASA’s most exciting missions, the Parker Solar Probe (PSP) launched from Cape Canaveral on August 12, 2018. The mission’s findings will help researchers improve forecasts of space weather events, which have the potential to damage satellites, […] [ + ]

A Few “New” Acquisitions from 1661, 1792, 1725
The collections of the Library of Congress are always growing. Besides what we receive through Copyright and other means, we reference specialists also recommend material to add to the permanent collection—often rare, older items we don’t own, but would like to have, and additional databases for on-site researchers to use. This past year there were […] [ + ] USA
