What's new in the past? You're about to find out with Prologue magazine, the quarterly publication of the National Archives. In this issue:

-Magellans of the Sky

In 1924, eight Army airmen set out to be the first humans to circle the globe by air. Rob Crotty recalls when flight was young and a race to circumnavigate the globe got the attention of a worldwide audience, even when communication was slow and cumbersome.

-Polar Women of the Archives

Miranda Booker Perry recalls how the federal government actively, and successfully, sought to suppress the movement to gain federal pensions for former slaves in the late 1800s.

-No Pension for Ex-Slaves

Miranda Booker Perry recalls how the federal government actively, and successfully, sought to suppress the movement to gain federal pensions for former slaves in the late 1800s.

-Authors on the Record

In this Authors on the Record, Hilary Parkinson interviews Robert Rope on his book: "Now the Drum of War: Walt Whitman and his Brothers in the Civil War."

-When Ponzi's Bubble Burst

The original Ponzi scheme was the brainchild of a convicted felon turned financial wizard named Charles Ponzi. This is his story.

-Institutional History

Frances McMillen and James S. Kane relate the history of what was, until 1987, a federal institution--St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, DC, where the ill and "not quite right" were sent.

The grounds of St. Elizabeths are currently being renovated as the new home of the Department of Homeland Security.


-Frame by Frame

Phillip W. Stewart chronicles the movie-making done by the federal government from World War I through the space race as he documents the motion picture holdings of the Archives.

-Children at Topic No. 1

Marilyn Irvin Holt documents the evolution of White house conferences on children and how they reflected the changing behavior, attitudes, and tastes of the nation's younger generation.

-68,937 and Counting

Tim Rives and Steve Spence discuss how to search the Inmate Case files from the US Penitentiary at Leavenworth, Kansas, from prison mug shots, to rap sheets of some of America's most notorious criminals.
