In Her Hands: The Story of Sculptor Augusta Savage
In Her Hands: The Story of Sculptor Augusta Savage

Augusta Savage, née Fells
b. 2-29-1892; Green Cove Springs, FL
d. 3-26-1962; NY

While Augusta Savage is mostly known as a sculptor, she was also a wonderful art teacher and a tireless supporter of the rights of all artists, expecially black artists. But she was lucky that she was able to pursue her art at all. She grew up in Florida with thirteen brothers and sisters. Her father was a strict Methodist minister who believed that the Bible forbade creating “graven images.” He punished Augusta whevever he found any of the small clay figurines she made as a child. But she did not let that get in her way. As she got older, she won awards for her work – and she also won her father's approval. She headed north to Harlem in 1921.

Savage's talent won her scholarships and friends among Harlem's elite. She was hired to sculpt the likenesses of some of the major black political figures of the time, including W.E.B. Du Bois and Marcus Garvey. Then, in 1923, she applied for a special summer arts program in France. When the selection committee found out Savage was black, however, her application was rejected. The controversy became front-page news in New York, as many scholars and community leaders rallied to her cause. But it wasn't until six years later that she was finally able to study in France.

In her later years, Savage spent more of her time teaching than sculpting. She founded a school that became the Harlem Community Art Center, the largest art center in the United States. One of her students, Jacob Lawrence, went on to become perhaps the most successful African American painter of all time. The art world lost a major figure when Augusta Savage died in 1962.

John T. Scopes
b. 8-3-1900; Paducah, KY
d. 10-21-1970

John T. Scopes was a high school football coach who occasionally substituted in the classroom. He allowed himself to become the test case for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of the State of Tennessee's Butler Act, a ban against teaching human evolution. The trial came to be known as the “Scopes Monkey Trial” (H. L. Mencken) and attracted nationwide attention to the small Tennessee town of Dayton in the summer of 1925. The prosecution was lead by noted fundamentalist orator William Jennings Bryan, the defense was lead by Clarence Darrow.

Glenn T. Seaborg
b. 4-19-1912; Ishpeming, MI (raised in California)
d. 2-25-1999; Stanford, CA

Glenn T. Seaborg shared the 1951 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for “discoveries in the chemistry of the transuranium elements”. He also contributed to the discovery and isolation of ten elements (plutonium, americium, curium, berkelium, californium, einsteinium, fermium, mendelevium, nobelium and element 106, which was named seaborgium in his honor while he was still living), and developed the actinide concept, which led to the current arrangement of the actinide series in the periodic table of the elements.

Seaborg was also a noted author and educator as well as the second chancellor of the University of California, Berkeley.

Glenn T. Seaborg quotes ~
• “There is a beauty in discovery. There is mathematics in music, a kinship of science and poetry in the description of nature, and exquisite form in a molecule. Attempts to place different disciplines in different camps are revealed as artificial in the face of the unity of knowledge. All literate men are sustained by the philosopher, the historian, the political analyst, the economist, the scientist, the poet, the artisan and the musician.
• “One of the first laws against air pollution came in 1300 when King Edward I decreed the death penalty for burning of coal. At least one execution for that offense is recorded. But economics triumphed over health considerations, and air pollution became an appalling problem in England.

Edouard Séguin
b. 1-12-1812; France
d. 10-28-1880; NYC

Physician and educator Edouard Séguin is best remembered for working with children having cognitive impairments. Séguin's work with the mentally handicapped was encouraged by his teacher, Jean Marc Garpard Itard; and Séguin was a major inspiration to Maria Montessori.

Edouard Séguin quote ~
“Not one idiot in a thousand has been entirely refractory to treatment, not one in a hundred has not been made more happy and healthy; more than thirty per cent have been taught to conform to social and moral law, and rendered capable of order, of good feeling, and of working like the third of a man; more than forty per cent have become capable of the ordinary transactions of life under friendly control, of understanding moral and social abstractions, of working like two-thirds of a man.”

Saint Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton
b. 8-28-1774; New York City, NY
b. 1-4-1821; Arizona

Mother Seton, the first native-born citizen of the United States to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church (1975), converted to catholicism in 1805 while in Italy.

She establish the Sisters of Charity of St. Joseph in Emmitsburg, Maryland dedicated to the care of the children of the poor in 1810. It was the first religious community of apostolic women founded in the United States, and its school was the first free school in America.

Mother Seton quotes ~
• “We must pray without ceasing, in every occurrence and employment of our lives - that prayer which is rather a habit of lifting up the heart to God as in a constant communication with Him.”
• “The first end I propose in our daily work is to do the will of God; secondly, to do it in the manner he wills it; and thirdly to do it because it is his will.”
