"Hello Boys! Become an Erector Master Engineer!"

Smithsonian Magazine

Christmas of 1918 was just months away, and the United States — immersed in the war effort — was considering calling off Santa. Perhaps parents should invest in Liberty bonds rather than in toys, the powers-that-be reasoned. Why should toys be saved when so many other items were being sacrificed during wartime?

Addressing the Council of National Defense in a special meeting, an energetic businessman from New Haven, Connecticut, explained why. America, argued A. C. Gilbert, was the home of educational toys, toys that prepared our boys for adulthood. He also brought examples. Soon, the Secretaries of War, the Navy, Commerce and the Interior were playing with tiny submarines and engines, reading children's books and tinkering with A. C. Gilbert's own popular creation: the Erector set.

He was touted in the press that year as "The Man Who Saved Christmas," but as author Bruce Watson points out, A. C. Gilbert and his trusty Erector sets also saved "rainy afternoons from boredom" and "inquiring minds...from the tedium of science textbooks." From 1913, when he released his first boxes of steel girders, nuts and bolts, till his death in 1961, A. C. Gilbert was inseparable from the popular toy, and the toy was inseparable from American boyhood.

Whether as a champion pole-vaulter, a professional magician or a purveyor of constructive fun, A. C. Gilbert set out to be the very best — and encouraged the same drive in his young customers. Times and toys have changed, and Gilbert's Erector sets and science kits now sell only among collectors. But the fond memories of millions of grown-up "Erector Engineers" — including our author — live on.

"Help!" ZIP Code Video

National Postal Museum
"Help!" ZIP Code Campaign Public Service Announcement Video produced by the Post Office Department, mid-1960s. Transcript: ZIP Code Television Public Service Announcement “Help!” Transcript provided by Smithsonian National Postal Museum Narrator: Here is a message from the United States Post Office. Post Office employee: Help! Narrator: The Post Office is flooded with mail. The mail load keeps getting bigger. It now pours in at the rate of over two hundred million new letters and packages a day. Just sorting this avalanche of mail takes longer and longer and can slow up mail delivery. Your mail. That’s why ZIP Code was created. When you add ZIP Code to the address, postal workers can sort the mail far more quickly and efficiently. And the post office can use its new electronic machines that read ZIP numbers and sort mail with space age speed. So add ZIP Code to every mailing address. If you don’t know the right ZIP, call your post office or look it up in their ZIP directory. Include your own ZIP Code in your return address. That makes it easy for others to ZIP mail to you. [Text]: Always use ZIP Code on both mail addresses and return addresses. Mail moves the country – ZIP Code moves the mail! Narrator: Remember, mail moves the country, and ZIP Code moves the mail!

"Herbert" Cello

National Museum of American History
The importance of the Amati family of violin makers cannot be overstated. In the 17th century, Nicolo's grandfather, Andrea Amati, appears to have created the form of the violin, viola, and cello as they are known today. Andrea's two sons, known as the "Brothers Amati," continued the family business, as well as his innovative spirit. The larger tenor viola was commonly played in their time, and while they made many of them, the "Brothers" are generally credited with introducing the smaller contralto viola, the size regarded as more suitable today. As with Jacob Stainer, the influence of the Amatis spread across Europe, influencing contemporary makers as far away as England and the Netherlands.

Nicolo Amati (1596-1684) was the last of the highly esteemed Amati violin makers and is considered the most refined craftsman of the Amati family. He took over the business on his father's death in 1630, a time when Cremona was devastated by famine followed by the plague. His survival assured the craft of violin making in Cremona would not only endure, but also exceed the pioneering work of earlier generations. The only remaining maker of any consequence in Italy, Nicolo regained a productive shop by 1640. Over his ensuing career he trained the next generation of Cremonese masters including Andrea Guraneri, Francesco Rugeri, Giovanni Rogeri, Giacomo Gennaro, and Antonio Stradivari. Jacob Stainer may have been one of his pupils as well.

Like his forebearers, Nicolo's production led him to develop yet another Amati innovation. Known today as the "Grand Amati," this slightly larger model violin is the most desirable for modern musicians. In general, his instruments are highly regarded for their elegant quality of sound and easy response to a musician's touch. Nicolo's lifetime achievement is judged as much by the preservation and impetus he gave to violin making as it is by the fine instruments he crafted in his mind and with his hands.
