With the September of The Chronicle – the journal of the Early American Industries Association (EAIA) – arriving in mailboxes, I’m now at work on the December issue. (My fervent hope is that it actually delivers in December; getting delivery and cover dates to match up is among my goals.)
As a member of EAIA , you get the print journal (The Chronicle) four times a year, Shavings, the quarterly e-newsletter (with information about EAIA meetings and events, tool auctions and more), and a discount on direct purchases from Astragal Press.
The Chronicle offers a wide array of articles on the tools, trades and industries that helped to build America: woodworking; carpentry; textile production; cookery; blacksmithing; farming; clock making; millinery; ice production; luthiery; metal production; glass; coopering; milling; masonry; brick making; brick laying; water delivery; stone cutting; boatbuilding; slating; printing; cheesemaking…the list could go on and on. (I’ve learned a massive amount of fascinating information about our collective material culture history in the last couple of months as I’ve read through back issues!) And if you have scholarly research on any of these topics and more that you’d like to see in print, I’d love to hear from you (either at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.)
Here’s a look at what’s inside the September issue, and below that, download Peter Follansbee’s tribute to Jennie Alexander:
