A Contemporary Response to Pearl Harbor

Screen Shot 2014-12-07 at 11.12.25 AMThose of you who subscribe to The Americanist Independent will surely recall the wonderful collection of WWII letters written by Navy Aviator Bill Evans – published in issue three earlier this year.

On this national day of remembrance, December 7, 2014, I suggest we all revisit – or have a first look at his reflections on the attack, written only hours after the event. Subscriptions to the journal are free – and you can access the particular issue HERE.

With compliments,


The Artwork of Ben A. Barnes

Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 10.06.29 AMI am so very thrilled to be able to include – on The Americanist Independent website – the exquisite  artwork of California painter and potter Ben A. Barnes.

Mr. Barnes  has been a teacher as well as  a commercial and freelance  artist since the 1950s. His work captures the essence of mid-century style with a particular California touch.

You can view his work by going HERE and clicking the Art and Literature tab. Subscriptions to the AI site are now and will forever be entirely gratis. So please enjoy with my compliments,
