The Power of Religion Frances Perkins Scholars Karen Johanns '03 and Nancy Hutton '03 were the only undergraduates to give presentations at the annual meeting of the Communal Studies Association September 26–28 in Oneida, New York. Johanns's presentation was titled "Be Ye Therefore Perfect: A Single Dream, Two Failures," and Hutton's paper was called "The Spiritual Theatre in Nineteenth-Century Shaker Communities." Also giving a paper at the event was Glendyne Beemer Wergland, who taught in MHC's history department last year.

Under Advisement The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners has appointed College librarian Gail G. Scanlon '95, director of MHC access services, to a three-year term on the State Advisory Council on Libraries. Scanlon will represent academic libraries. The council is a sixteen-member board of representatives from all types of libraries, as well as individuals who use them. It acts as an advisory board to the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners board. A trustee of the South Hadley Free Library, Scanlon is also a member of the American Library Association and its division of college and research libraries.

Music Meetings The New England chapter of the American Musicological Society met at MHC September 28. It was the second time MHC has hosted the group and the first meeting in the newly renovated Pratt Hall, which received very positive responses from participants. The New England chapter of the Music Library Association met in Pratt October 4. The group's first biannual meeting at the College was sponsored by Library, Information, and Technology Services and hosted by the music department. Robert Eisenstein, director of the Five College Early Music Collegium and visiting lecturer, and Margaret Switten, Class of 1926 Professor of Medieval and Eighteenth-Century French Language and Literature, presented their work on the medieval lyric. Linda Laderach, professor of music and chair of the department, and Larry Schipull, associate professor of music and College organist, gave a presentation on historically informed performance.

Banned in Texas, Discussed in Florence Mount Holyoke history professor Daniel Czitrom will give a presentation on the controversy over Out of Many: A History of the American People, the textbook he coauthored, at Florence's Lilly Library on Wednesday, October 23, at 7 pm. The Texas Board of Education objected to the book's unvarnished descriptions of life in nineteenth-century cattle towns, effectively barring it from use in Texas schools. For more information, call 587-1500.
