In What Subject Did The Evolutionist Charles Darwin (Origin Of Species) Get His University Degree?From History Forum:
In what subject did the evolutionist Charles Darwin (Origin of Species) get his university degree? Sources, please.
Answer: Perhaps surprisingly, Darwin's degree from Cambridge in 1831 was a BA in Theology. His university career is a bit confusing because he attended various side courses reflecting his interest in natural history. PS muinghan: he did pass, and with a good grade: "In the final BA examination in January 1831 Darwin ranked tenth in the pass-list of 178, surprising even himself." - Oxford Dictionary of National Biography
Does Anyone Have Any Sources On The Suffragette Mary Richardson?From History Forum:
Does anyone have any sources on the Suffragette Mary Richardson? I have searched many Internet pages of the Internet for any newspaper clippings or public reaction of when Mary Richardson slashed 'Venus' in the National Gallery for the suffrage cause. Does anyone know of any links, would help me and my essay so much! Thanks in advance
Answer: Certainly an enigmatic feminist who was born to and raised by a single mother in Belle ville, Ontario Canada before moving to the United Kingdom and working alongside the Pankhurst's in the Suffragette movement. She is seen as among the most prominent to have slashed a piece of art as political protest - but not the first to have so done. Thus public reaction may have been 'dulled' by both - this type of act and passed off as just another attempt to gain attention by a member of a fringe political element. Not to help the feminist cause any, she later became the leader of the women's wing of the British Union of Fascists. She ran for parliament in England several times over under the banner of several political parties and never received a swelling of public political support. Most of this response comes from the bog of Hilda Kean but I add a list of sources for you to look for: Articles by Hilda Kean in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography and in the Women's History Review. Kean also authored a book, Deeds not Words. Mary Raleigh Richardson published her own autobiography in 1953 - Laugh a Defiance.

Who Did William Blake Propose To And Refuse His Offer?From Books & Authors Forum:
Who did William Blake propose to and refuse his offer? I have to find out for an English project - Thanks
Answer: The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography and Peter Ackroyd's acclaimed biography of Blake both fail to mention the name of the person to whom he was romantically attached before his marriage to Catherine Botcher. It is therefore unlikely that it is known.

Has Any UK Prime Minister Ever Come Out As An Atheist?From Current Events Forum:
Has any UK Prime Minister ever come out as an atheist? I just read that Australia's Prime minister is an atheist
Answer: The deputy Nick Cl egg, when David is on holiday is the closest I can think of. To my knowledge no other UK Prime Ministers have stated that they are atheist. Edit: Apparently Callaghan was... "One of the more enduring marks on British life left by the atheist, Prime Minister Callaghan, was to remove exclusive responsibility for the appointment of bishops from his own office and share it largely with a commission of churchmen. Since 1976, the Prime Minister has been limited to choosing one from two nominees of the commission or, in exceptional cases, sending the list back for the commission to produce a new one." Hugo Young, 'A relic of history best left undisturbed', The Guardian (London), March 27, 1990." Edit 2: Attlee as well... "then in 1896 at the age of thirteen went on, like all the boys in the family, to Hailey bury College. Here he confirmed an unobtrusive atheism—he became disenchanted with church attendance and religious observance—and played rugby and cricket with the handicap of his small stature and lack of any real skill, but enjoyed the rifle corps." R. C. Whiting, 'Attlee, Clement Richard, first Earl Attlee (1883–1967)', Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, Sept 2004; on line edition, January 2008 (accessed May 2, 2008)."

What Does The Saying, "Paint The Map Red" Mean?From Words & Wordplay Forum:
what does the saying, "Paint the map red" mean? I am doing a research project on Cecil Rhodes in Global History class. I keep hearing the saying, "paint the map red" and I go ogled it and looked for the meaning of it, but can't find it. what does it mean?
Answer: I believe it is a variation of the phrase 'paint the town red'. The following is a long document (sorry), but it is better than giving you the site, because nobody likes to click on a site anymore? Painting the map red would include this definition, only on a much grander scale! Paint the town red Meaning Engage in a riotous spree. Origin The allusion is to the kind of unruly behaviour that results in much blood being spilt. There are several suggestions as to the origin of the phrase. The one most often repeated, especially within the walls of the Melton Mow bray Tourist Office, is a tale dating from 1837. It is said that year is when the Marquis of Waterford and a group of friends ran riot in the Leicester shire town of Melton Mow bray, painting the town's toll-bar and several buildings red. That event is well documented, and is certainly in the style of the Marquis, who was a notorious hooligan. To his friends he was Henry DE la Pier Beresford; to the public he was known as 'the Mad Marquis'. In the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography he is described as 'reprobate and landowner'. His misdeeds include fighting, stealing, being 'invited to leave' Oxford University, breaking windows, upsetting (literally) apple-carts, fighting duels and, last but not least, painting the heels of a parson's horse with aniseed and hunting him with bloodhounds. He was notorious enough to have been suspected by some of being 'Spring Heeled Jack', the strange, semi-mythical figure of English folklore. Melton Mow bray is the origin of the well-known Melton Mow bray pork pie - which could hardly have originated anywhere else. The town's claim to be the source of 'painting the town red' is more doubtful. It is at least plausible that it came from there of course, but no more plausible than Stony Stratified, Buckingham shire being the source of 'cock and bull story' or Osbourne, Derby shire being the source of 'local derby' (which they aren't). Unfortunately, plausibility is as far as it goes. The phrase isn't recorded in print until fifty years after the nefarious Earl's night out. If that event really were the source of the phrase, why would anyone, or in this case everyone, wait fifty years before mentioning it? Further evidence for the event, but against it being the phrase's origin, comes from a text below a picture of the revellers, dated 1837. The picture is labelled A Spree at Melton Mow bray and subtitled Or doing the Thing in a Sporting-like manner. The date of the painting is certainly contemporary with the alleged incident and was reported on in the the New Sporting Magazine, in July 1837: Mr. R. Ermanno, 191, Regent Street, has just published two more of the series of Sporting Anecdotes, illustrative of certain disgraceful proceedings termed "sprees," which took place at Melton Mow bray last season. In that in titled "Quick work without a Contract, by tip-top Sawyers," three gentlemen (?) in scarlet coats, small-clothes, and silk stockings, - com me IL fat, - are seen engaged in painting the sign of the White Swan red; and two others of the same class are perceived painting the window of the Post Office in the same manner. Another of those "bloods" is making a stroke with his brush at the back of a flying watchman ; two others, like regular gutter-bullies, are engaged in personal contest with two watchmen, and three MEN in scarlet have a single watchman down and are daubing his face with paint. The rhyme itself is headed Quick work without a contract. By tip-top sawyers: Coming it strong with a Spree and a spread, Milling the day-lights, or cracking the head; Go it ye cripples! come tip us your maulers, Up with the lanterns, and down with the Charleys: If lagg'd we should get, we can gammon the Beak, Tip the slaves a Billy to stifle their squeak. Come the bounce with the snobs, and a [blank] for their betters, And prove all the Statutes so many dead letters. That takes some deciphering but it is clearly a hymn of praise for going out and causing mayhem. It is heavy with the slang of the day and is in part translated into modern-day English like this: To do was 'to rob or cheat'; sport was 'good fun or mayhem', so doing the thing in a sporting like manner would be to carry out the illegal revelry in high spirits. Coming it strong with a Spree and a spread - spread here suggests the widespread mayhem, Milling was fighting, so Milling the day-lights is the same as beating the living day-lights out of someone. Go it ye cripples! - go it means, 'Keep at it! Fight hard'. Cripples may have its usual meaning, i.e. disabled. A cripple was also a misshapen sixpence. Neither meaning seems to make much sense here though. Come tip us your maulers - shake hands. Down with the Charley's - a Charley was a night watchman. If lagg'd we should get, we can gammon the Beak - lagged is caught or arrested; gammon was patter or humbug; a beak was (and still is) a magistr
People Who Know Alto About Kate Greenaway?From History Forum:
People who know alto about Kate greenaway? Please could you tell me about her work as I know her work isn't as nice and fairytale as it may seem it has a dark side to it do you know what influenced her. And please no links to wiki
Answer: Kate Green away lived from 1846-1901. She was born in Houston which was the heart of London's East End and she was surrounded by poverty. Her father was a wood engraver but his income was irregular. Kate was happier visiting relatives in rural Nottingham and made early drawings of the countryside there. She disliked school and was educated at home. Being very isolated she wove fantasies around her dolls and enjoyed reading. Her shyness continued throughout her life. Kate began attending art schools at the age of 12 until well into her adult life. Her fellow students and tutors influenced her work. Ruskin was a great friend and encouraged her to draw from nature, hence her flower pictures. He also had a liking for girls and encouraged her to draw pictures of girls as well. Kate lived a relatively long life for the time and came under many influences.
