Rose Marie Reid: Glamour By Design

Harold B. Lee Library News - Tue, 08/18/2015 - 1:36pm

Sports Illustrated Sporting Look Award, 1958, and Los Angeles Times Woman of the Year, 1955, are just two of the honors bestowed on successful business woman Rose Marie Reid. Today her work sought out by fans of mid century fashion and she continues to inspire new generations of designers.

In the middle of the Great Depression, Rose Marie Yancey married Jack Reid, a swimming instructor and athletic manager in Vancouver, Canada. Jack asked Rose Marie to design him a more functional swimsuit. He was so happy with the lace-up suit that he took a duplicate suit to the Hudson Bay Department Store. Impressed, Hudson Bay requested a lady’s suit design and ended up ordering nearly two hundred. With that 1936 order, Rose Marie Reid’s first business, Reid’s Holiday Togs, Ltd. was born. From that day until the mid-1960s the name Rose Marie Reid was synonymous with beautiful, functional, and innovative women’s swimwear. Her swimsuits were advertised widely in fashion magazines and were sold in department stores in Canada, the United States, and Europe.

The L. Tom Perry Special Collections just opened a new exhibition on the life and work of Rose Marie Reid just in time for Education Week 2015. Rose Marie Reid: Glamour By Design will feature Reid’s letters, photographs, promotional materials, and of course significant examples of her swimwear.

Reid’s suits were more than fashionable. Her long-term success came from using patented fabrics and designs to improve the fit and function of her suits. She found loyal customers in some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Rita Hayworth, Jane Mansfield, and Marilyn Monroe were known to wear Rose Marie Reid suits. In 1959, Sandra Dee and the other female co-stars of the film Gidget all wore Reid’s suits.

Rose Marie Reid: Glamour By Design is located on level 1 of The Harold B. Lee Library on the campus of Brigham Young University. The exhibition is open to the public and admission is free. Special Collections’ hours are 8:00 am to 9:00 pm Monday through Thursday, 8:00 am to 6:00 pm Friday, and 10:00 am until 6:00 pm Saturday. You can call the reception desk of the L. Tom Perry Special Collections at 801-422-3514 to check on holiday hours. Parking is free in BYU visitor parking areas near the Museum of Art and on the East side of campus. The exhibition will be in place from August 17, 2015 through late spring of 2016.

“Jesus the Christ”

Harold B. Lee Library News - Fri, 08/14/2015 - 5:12pm

There is a new exhibit on display in the lobby of the L. Tom Perry Special Collections commemorating the 100th anniversary of the publication of Jesus the Christ. The exhibit is co-curated by Ryan K. Lee, manuscript curator, and Gerrit van Dyk, Mormon Studies.

In September 1915 the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints published Jesus the Christ, a monumental work on the life of Jesus Christ by Elder James E. Talmage of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles that was over a decade in the making. Elder Talmage had already made a name for himself as a brilliant scientist, lecturer, and educator prior to this book. But this work became an instant classic and solidified Talmage’s legendary status among other Church intellectuals and witnesses to the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Mostly known for being a large book full of an advanced vocabulary, this book has been used for decades as one of the foundational works for Church missionaries and members to study when wanting to know more about the life of Jesus Christ.

This exhibit showcases items from L. Tom Perry Special Collections and the Harold B. Lee Library related to the history and production of this seminal work. Included in the exhibit are entries from Elder Talmage’s personal journals and a video and audio recording of Talmage. Also included are works that influenced Talmage in his writing and research for this book, a first edition copy signed by the First Presidency in 1915, and selected foreign language editions. You are welcome to thumb through a first edition copy from the Lee Library’s open stacks, as well as record any experiences you have had with reading Jesus the Christ. May this exhibit help the visitor better understand the history behind this classic work that influenced so many in their journey to come to know the Savior of Mankind.

Seven SpoonsTara O'Brady back to book
My expectations for this book were very high and Tara O'Brady did not disappoint in the least! Her recipes are outstanding and easy to follow and her writing is simply fantastic. I've been reading her blog for a few years and the whole reason I got hooked was the writing. It's elegant while still being wonderfully real and approachable. You feel like she's standing across the counter telling you a story as she cooks. Worth every penny and well worth reading cover to cover.

Food 52 Genius Recipes

WordSalad: Brigham City Library Blog - Wed, 07/22/2015 - 4:06pm
Food52 Genius RecipesKristen Miglore, Foreword by Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs back to book
Genius Recipes, presented by the website Food52, is a book I have been anticipating for a long time. The “genius recipes” section of their website is a collection of breakthroughs in everyday cooking. In this cookbook they have collected the hundred best of those already carefully curated selections. I have been a huge fan of them for years because they have a talent for finding the most surprising takes on old favorites, and the most innovative techniques that simplify, rather than make recipes more complex.

The recipes in this book are written with clarity, successfully getting across the details of the steps without ever getting overwhelming. Sprinkled throughout are ingenious tips and ideas of how recipes can be altered to be more your own. There are stunning full color photographs of every finished recipe and many also have beautifully staged pictures of the process of making the dish. They could have framed prints of the set of photos showing making the chickpea stew with saffron, yogurt and garlic and I would happily have bought them.

As a result of being twice curated, every recipe in this book is a jewel. The English porridge and ginger fried rice have been habit-forming comfort food for me and my family. The exotic sounding sweet corn and black raspberry ice cream and the pasta with yogurt and caramelized onions are revelations with how finely balanced and lush the unlikely combinations mesh. The subtitle of Food52 Genius Recipes is “100 recipes to change the way you cook” and I can testify, they have certainly changed the way I approach each meal.

Superhero Training Camp

WordSalad: Brigham City Library Blog - Tue, 07/21/2015 - 3:51pm
We had an amazing time at our Superhero training camp! This was held in conjunction with our summer storytime classes and followed the theme, "Every hero has a story".  Many thanks to our local heroes and visitors! The children enjoyed learning how police officers and fire fighters and EMT's help people and are everyday heroes. You may notice that many of the kids chose to wear their super hero T-shirts and costumes today.

Indy got to try on the fire fighter boots and try and walk!
Owen tried on the fire helmet. It was heavy!
Noah tried on the coat, boots and helmet.After our visitors, we began our training. We had the following stations: Lazer maze, brick wall smash, villain capture ring toss, lava pit rescue, villain catapult, weapon training pool noodle throw, agility test ping pong ball bounce. At the end of training we sat down to rest and watch an old Superman cartoon from the 1950's. Finally we took everyone outside and ate popsicles. What a great, fun way to end our Storytime session!
Crawl, roll or step over the red laser beams to get outside.
Rescue the bear, but don't fall in the hot lava!
Shake the ping pong balls out of your basket with out using your hands.
A shout out to Mr. Lorenzo Schumann for building our catapults! They work great!

Everyone got a chance to use their super punch or super kick to knock down the wall.
Mrs. Edwards rebuilds the brick wall for the next person.
Pool noodle throw. We used hula hoops for our targets.
Officer Weeks told us that we should learn our address, phone number and parent's names just in case we ever get lost. 
Officer Weeks showed us his gun, taser, and baton. He uses these tools to protect us and protect himself.
One more thanks to all the Mom's, Grandma's and Grandpa's who attended and helped with their children. Many hands make light work! Thanks to those to stayed to help clean up too.
