        The Shining Life: An Appreciation of Julius Rosenwald Delivered at a Memorial Service in Fisk Memorial Chapel, Nashville, Tennessee, February 14, 1932

      Fisk University Bulletin. Vol. 8, Number 1. (Nashville: Fisk University) 1932 - 8vo., printed wrappers, sewn; lightly soiled. First edition; not identified in standard bibliographical references. A presentation copy, inscribed: "For Doris Ulmann, with sincere regards. James Weldon Johnson," on the title page ----- New York photographer Doris Ulmann (1884-1934), acclaimed for her photographic study of South Carolina black families in Julia Peterkin's "Roll, Jordan, Roll" (1933), supplied a striking portrait for "Along This Way; The Autobiography of James Weldon Johnson" (1933). Chief Justice William Howard Taft called Julius Rosenwald, patriarch of the Sears, Roebuck empire, "a great national asset." On February 14, 1932, five weeks after Rosenwald's death, James Weldon Johnson, recently appointed to the Adam K. Spence Chair of Creative Literature and Writing at Fisk University, paid tribute to the Chicago philanthropist, whose Fund (officially incorporated in October 1917) had provided nearly $5,000,000, or around fifteen percent of the amount necessary to establish some 5,000 rural schoolhouses (for 650,000 black students) across fifteen Southern states. "[I]n this age of tottering social standards, of crumbling religious sanctions, of bankrupt statesmanship and economics, of discredited politicians and financiers, it seems to me that one of the supreme needs of humanity is men in whom it can believe," asserted Johnson. "[T]he life of Julius Rosenwald, is a shining life." Johnson, in particular, had well benefited from Rosenwald's generosity - with the completion of "Black Manhattan" made possible by a 1929 Rosenwald fellowship.

      Dallas: Book Club of Texas, 1932. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine-. First Edition, only printing (never reprinted in the United States until it appeared in Uncollected Short Stories of William Faulkner, in 1979). Preface by Henry Nash Smith. 8vo: xii,29,[2]pp, no. 189 of 300 numbered copies. Original reddish-brown gilt-ruled and -lettered cloth, fore- and bottom edges untrimmed. Very light wear to spine tips, else clean, tight, bright and unmarked; about Fine (and apparently unread), wanting the original glassine dust jacket. Petersen A12.1& & ¶ Probably written in 1929, three years before publication by the Book Club of Texas in this special edition of three hundred copies. The short story centers on development of the title character whose mother raises her as a virtual prisoner. "Though it is crude in its handling of sexual imagery and suffers from a number of other technical problems that betray it as an early story, it does create two vivid characters. And of more importance, it reveals the author grappling with a theme that will be developed fully in some of his greatest stories and novels: the warping, destructive impact upon the psyche of the repression of those drives that connect the human being to the world of nature. . . . The narrative techniques of 'Miss Zilphia Gant' also show Faulkner surely, if falteringly, moving toward this techniques that will make his Jefferson stories and novels masterpieces." (Volpe, A Reader's Guide to William Faulkner: The Short Stories) N. B.

        Die Ästhetische Chirurgie und ihre soziale Bedeutung.

      - Deutsche, von der Verfasserin erweiterte und neubearbeitete Ausgabe "La Chirurgie Esthétique" übersetzt von Dr. A. Hardt (Paris). Mit einem Geleitwort von Prof. E.Meirowsky. - Leipzig, J.A. Barth, 1932, 8°, 71 pp., 112 Abb., OKartBd. Noël's "famous book" (Wallace) marked the end of the 'pioneering period' of cosmetic surgery and that since then, surgeons have only been concerned with 'technical variations and improvements in the operations of their predecessors'. - Suzanne Noël, known to her colleagues as Madame Noël, was the first and most famous woman to practice cosmetic surgery, working in France at the beginning of last century. She was also a feminist: a suffragette, an advocate of women's right to work, and one of the founders of soroptimism, an international women's organization. - She wrote one of the first medical handbooks about cosmetic surgery in 1926, thereby laying the groundwork for the profession as we know it today (Rogers, 1971). - Suzanne Blanche Marguerite Gros was born in 1878 in Laon, France of well-to-do parents. As the only surviving daughter of four children, she was doted on by her parents and received the usual education reserved for middle-class girls: classics, embroidery, and painting. At 19, she made a 'good marriage' to a doctor 9 years older than she, Henri Pertat. In 1905, she embarked on her medical studies; studies which she probably could not have undertaken without the consent and active support of her husband (Jacquemin, 1988:13). (Noël later claimed that she became a doctor in order to work with her husband in his dermatology practice.) She excelled in her studies and, following an illness and the birth of her daughter, passed the highly competitive 'Internat des Hospitaux de Paris' in 1912 as the 4th of 67 students. This was an exceptional performance for a woman - one which, as her official biographer notes, 'could only have been achieved by extremely hard work and a brilliant intelligence' (Jacquemin, 1988:16). In 1919, her husband died and she remarried a fellow student in dermatology, André Noël who had just returned from the front. He quickly finished his 'Internat' (graduating at the bottom of his class) and handed in a thesis which was probably based on work which his wife had been doing on the 'douche filiforme' (an installation for bathing patients with skin problems). Their marriage was short-lived. Following the death of Suzanne's daughter, André became severely depressed and in 1924, he threw himself into the Seine in front of his wife. Devastated, Suzanne Noël turned to her work for solace and it was to remain her passion until her death in 1954. - Noël first became interested in cosmetic surgery in 1912 when she noticed that the famous actress, Sarah Bernhardt returned from her American tour miraculously rejuvenated. (Bernhardt was, at that time, well over sixty.) Curious, Noël began experimenting by pinching the skin of her own face in different places to see if she could get the same effect. Surprised at what she was able to accomplish, she began to experiment more seriously, operating on anesthetized rabbits whose skin is similar in 'delicacy and elasticity to human skin'. - The advent of World War I allowed Noël to gain expertise in treating wounded soldiers for facial injuries and in 1916 she undertook further surgical training for operating on disfiguring scars as well as her old 'hobby', the rejuvenation of wrinkled faces. Noël situates the beginning of her devotion to cosmetic surgery in one of her first face-lift operations on a woman who 'due to her age was not able to earn her own living' - an operation which was apparently so successful that the patient was immediately able to find a job. Noël claims to have been so impressed by this fortuitous result that she decided to make cosmetic surgery her vocation and from that point on, did not look back. - Noël's medical career spanned the period from 1916 to 1950 and can be separated into two distinct .
