Enhancing pupil learning on museum visits Enhancing pupil learning on museum visits

Description

Museums give children experiences above and beyond the everyday experiences that enrich and build upon classroom teaching and learning. Taking pupils to a museum, or bringing museum artefacts into school, instantly changes the dynamics of the usual learning environment. It gives you as a teacher the opportunity to start afresh with each child, to reach and engage with pupils in new and different ways. This free course, Enhancing pupil learning on museum visits, explores practical ways in which you can make the most of the UK's extraordinarily dynamic and diverse museums and galleries; it gives you pathways into museum resources, and shares examples of teachers and museum educators making the most of museum artefacts.

John W. Hoole alias Thomas McNeish, arrested for stealing money

Description

Name: John W. Hoole alias Thomas McNeish Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 6 July 1915 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-260-John W Hoole AKA Thomas McNeish The Shields Daily News for 15 July 1915 reports: ?PLATER?S THEFT FROM A WOMAN?S PURSE IN A NORTH SHIELDS FISH SHOP. John Wm. Hoole (23), plater, was charged on remand at North Shields yesterday with having stolen, on the 5th inst. the sum of 10s 6d, belonging to Mrs Jennie Young. Prosecutrix, the wife of Joseph Young, residing in Roseberry Avenue, Preston, said about 9pm on the 5th inst. she went into the fish shop at the corner of Borough Road and Gardner Street and sat down on a seat. She had her purse in her hand and it contained at that time 10s 6d in silver, including a half-crown and three two shilling pieces. Shortly afterwards the accused and two soldiers came in and sat down on the same form. Witness got up and left but as soon as she got to the door she remembered she had left her purse lying on the seat. She went back and saw the accused pick her purse up and hand it to a solider to give to her. When she received the purse she found it was open and the money was missing. The soldier sent for a policeman and the accused was taken into custody. Pte. Gilbert of the 2nd Dragoon Guards, at present attached to the Duke of Wellington?s Regiment. Said he had known accused for about a week prior to the 5th inst. On that night accused joined witness and another soldier in a public house. He said he had no money and he had to borrow 1s from a woman before he could stand the ?drinks?. Afterwards he asked them to go to the fish and chip shop. The woman who lost her purse was sitting nearest to the accused. After the woman went out and came back accused picked up the purse and asked witness to give it to the woman. Witness did so and as the woman was moving away accused handed witness a 2s piece, saying ?Here?s 2s for you and your mate to get a drink?. Witness asked him where he got the money and accused replied ?You never know what money you?ve got?. When the woman complained that the money had been stolen from her purse witness sent for the police so that the matter might be cleared up. Det. Graham deposed to taking the accused into custody. As he went towards accused he heard a jingle of money and afterwards found two 2s pieces on the floor near where he was sitting. He recovered 5s from the accused in addition and also the 2s from the witness Gilbert. Accused pleaded not guilty. Asked to account for the 5s which was found upon him, when he told the soldiers that he had no money at all earlier in the night, accused said he had kept quiet about that money because he needed it to get to Southampton. He had, he said, been working at Palmer?s where he earned 4 per week. The Bench found the case clearly established and a previous conviction being proved against him at the Moot Hall, Newcastle, where he was sent to gaol for six months for the theft of a watch and jewellery, they committed him to prison for one month?. These images are taken from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 (TWAM ref. DX1388/1). This set is our selection of the best mugshots taken during the First World War. They have been chosen because of the sharpness and general quality of the images. The album doesn?t record the details of each prisoner?s crimes, just their names and dates of arrest. In order to discover the stories behind the mugshots, staff from Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums visited North Shields Local Studies Library where they carefully searched through microfilm copies of the ?Shields Daily News? looking for newspaper reports of the court cases. The newspaper reports have been transcribed and added below each mugshot. Combining these two separate records gives us a fascinating insight into life on the Home Front during the First World War. These images document the lives of people of different ages and backgrounds, both civilians and soldiers. Our purpose here is not to judge them but simply to reflect the realities of their time.

Description

Name: James Waters alias Joseph Turnbull Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 25 September 1906 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-95-James Waters AKA Joseph Turnbull The Shields Daily News for 25 September 1906 reports: ?HOUSEBREAKING AT NORTH SHIELDS. ACCUSED COMMITTED FOR TRIAL. At North Shields Police Court today, James Turnbull, alias Waters, a young man, was charged with breaking and entering the dwelling-house, no. 2 Camp Terrace, and stealing a silver serviette ring, a lady?s silver watch, a silver spoon, a ring, bracelet, and locket, the property of Eliz. Jackson. Richard Appleby-Jackson, an articled clerk and estate agent residing at no. 2 Camp Terrace, said that on the 29th Aug. last he and the other members of the family left home and returned on the 12th Sept, finding that it had been broken into, and that a number of articles valued at 4 8s had been stolen. On the 20th inst., from what he was told, he went to the police station and there identified a serviette ring, a watch, a spoon, and other articles as the property of his mother. Anna Ramsey, residing in Howard Street, said that while the prosecutrix was from home she kept the keys of the house. On the 4th Sept she went there for the purpose of watering the plants and found everything in order. She locked the house up before she left, everything then being secure. She returned three days later and found the house in a state of disorder. Mary Isabel Davies, a cook in the employ of the prosecutrix, said that while her mistress was away she went to live in Bedford Street. On the 6th Sept she obtained the keys from the last witness in order to do some cleaning. She went next day, and was unable to open the front door because the chain on the inside had been put on, and she was obliged to get assistance in order to force an entrance. When she went into the house everything was in a state of disorder and she immediately informed the police. Michael D. Hart, dealer in second-hand goods, 120 Pilgrim Street, Newcastle, stated that on the 7th inst. the prisoner came to his shop and offered to sell the locket, bracelet and ring produced, which he said belonged to his wife, and upon which he wished to raise some money, that he was out of employment. Witness gave 5s for them. Accused also offered to sell a silver serviette ring, a spoon, and a brooch, which witness declined to buy. A watchmaker and jeweller, belonging to West Hartlepool, said that on Sept 8th the prisoner came to his shop and offered the serviette ring, photo frame and spoon for sale, saying he was ?hard up?. Witness bought the articles for 4s. Later in the day he returned with a lady?s silver watch and offered to dispose of it for 10s. It was, however, defective and he accordingly declined to buy it. Detective Radcliffe deposed to visiting the house in Camp Terrace on the 7th inst and finding the house in a state of disorder. The door leading from the front to the back of the house was fastened and he had to climb through the serving aperture in order to get to the kitchen. Detective Inspector Thornton said that on the 14th inst. he went to West Hartlepool Police Station, where the serviette ring, spoon, photo frame, and watch were handed to him in the presence of the accused, who said they were the things he got from a house in North Shields. Witness told him there was a ring, a locket and bracelet missing from the same house. Prisoner replied that he sold them to a second-hand dealer in Pilgrim Street, Newcastle. On being charged this morning the prisoner made no reply. Formally charged by the Clerk (Col. R. F. Kidd), prisoner had still nothing to say. He was committed for trial at the Quarter Sessions.? At the Northumberland Quarter Sessions The Shields Daily News for 19th October 1906 reports: ?PENAL SERVITUDE FOR HOUSEBREAKING AT TYNEMOUTH James Turnbull, 26, pleaded guilty to having broken into the dwelling-house of Elizabeth Jackson at Tynemouth and stolen several articles to the value of 4 8s. He was sentenced to five years penal servitude, the sentence to run concurrently with a term he is at present serving at Durham.?

4.609 The Art Museum: History, Theory, Controversy (MIT) 4.609 The Art Museum: History, Theory, Controversy (MIT)

Description

Art museums are powerful and contested institutions. They are also innovative sites of architectural and artistic practice. From the exhibitionary complex of the nineteenth century to the experiential complex of today, this course investigates the art museum from historical and contemporary perspectives, striking a balance between theoretical investigation and case studies of recent exhibitions and museum buildings. Where and why did the concept of the public art museum emerge, and how have its functions changed over time? How do art museums continue to shape our definitions of what art is? How have they responded to recent critiques of the self-described 'universal' museum and to claims for the ethical display of ill-gotten artifacts or the restitution of such objects as Greek vases and Art museums are powerful and contested institutions.

Joseph Tombling, arrested for obtaining money by false pretences

Description

Name: Joseph Tombling Arrested for: Larceny Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 4 February 1905 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-63-Joseph Tombling The Shields Daily News for 10 February 1905 reports: ?SERIOUS CHARGES AGAINST A NORTH SHIELDS YOUTH. COLLECTING FOR A BOGUS CRICKET CLUB. THREE MONTHS? IMPRISONMENT. At North Shields Police Court today Joseph Tomblin (17) was charged with having obtained by means of false pretences 2s 6d from Henry Dillon Irvin on the 1st inst. with intent to cheat and defraud. Prosecutor who resides at 9 Prudhoe Terrace, Tynemouth, said that on the 1st inst. the prisoner came to his house and at his request was turned away. Subsequently the accused met him in the street and asked him for a subscription towards the Tynemouth Boys Cricket Club. He asked him to accompany him to his rooms. Accused did so and there he put certain questions to him. Prisoner produced a subscription list and said the club had made arrangements with the North Shields Athletic Association Football Club for the rental of their field. On this representation he gave him 2s 6d and finding afterwards from inquiries that his statements were incorrect he applied for a warrant for his arrest. He produced the list, which bore his and several other names. Septimus Crowell, 39 Jackson Street, who is secretary of the North Shields Athletic Club said he had never heard of such as club as the Tynemouth Boys Cricket Club. Detective Sergt. Scougal said he arrested the accused in Front Street, Tynemouth, on the night of the 3rd inst. and charged him. He made no reply. He took him to the Tynemouth Divisional Police Station and upon searching him he found in his possession several lists (produced). In conversation the accused said he had collected the money shewn on the lists upon his own account. There was no such club as the Tynemouth Boys Cricket Club. An organization bearing this name did exist about five years ago but he was not a member of it. On one of the lists appeared the name of A.B. Brown, who was supposed to be the captain of the club. Witness asked him who this person was and he replied that he did not know. Some of the lists were dated three or four years back. During that period the accused had been collecting money for a football club at one part of the year and for a cricket club at another. Accused was formally charged. He pleaded guilty and had nothing to say. Prisoner was then charged with having obtained by means of false pretences 9d from Henry Jarvis Ward in the latter part of January. Prosecutor who lives at No. Albury Park Road said the accused came to his house in the latter part of January and told him that arrangements had been made for the renting of a field for the club and that all the money had been subscribed with the exception of 2s 6d. Accused had been coming to him twice a year for at least for years collecting subscriptions for a football and a cricket club. Detective Sergt. Scougal proved the arrest and prisoner pleaded guilty. A third charge was preferred against the accused of having obtained by similar means 5s from Coun. Geo. Stephenson, steam trawler owner, No. 1 Park Crescent. Accused said he only got 2s 6d. The father of the accused was asked by the magistrates if he could account for his son?s misconduct. He blamed a certain religious body in Tynemouth, the officials of which sent boys to collect subscriptions. They did not give them officially signed papers or collecting books and this created a great temptation. The Chairman (Capt J. Bolt) said it was a very bad case. The Bench, however, had decided to deal leniently with the accused. He would have to go to prison in the second division for one month on each charge ? three months in all?. The Shields Daily News for 1 September 1905 reports: ?ASSAULTS AT NORTH SHIELDS. YOUNG MAN FINED. At the North Shields Police Court today, Joseph Tombling, a young man residing at 25 Edith Street, Spital Dene, was summoned for having assaulted Mrs Jane Mitchell, who resides in the same thoroughfare, and her daughter, Jane Mitchell, on the 25th ult. Mr A. Whitehorn, who appeared on behalf of the complainants, said they were mother and daughter. They resided at 47 Edith Street, Spital Dene, whilst the defendant lived at No. 25 in the same street. On Thursday afternoon last Mrs Mitchell was wheeling a pram past the defendant?s mother?s door when a brother of the defendant jeered at her. She took no notice of him but next day seeing him in the back lane she remonstrated with him about jeering at her. At this time the defendant came upon the scene and rolling up his sleeves offered to fight anyone in Mitchell?s house. Mrs Mitchell advised him to go away and to frighten him said she would throw some water over him. She put the pail underneath the tap and let the water run but before it was half full the defendant ran into the yard, took hold of her by the throat and knocked her head against the wall. Mr Whitehorn described the attack as a most outrageous one and asked the Bench to deal severely with the defendant. The daughter of Mrs Mitchell called the defendant a coward for striking a woman, whereupon the defendant struck her a violent blow on the side of the face. Complainants bore out this testimony. Defendant alleged that Mrs and Miss Mitchell made a practice of reminding him of the time he was in gaol and telling him he would be there again. He denied assaulting either of the complainants and called his brother who gave evidence on his behalf. A fine of 5s and costs was imposed in each case, with the alternative of 14 days imprisonment?. These images are a selection from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 in the collection of Tyne & Wear Archives (TWA ref DX1388/1). This set contains mugshots of boys and girls under the age of 21. This reflects the fact that until 1970 that was the legal age of majority in the UK.

William Glendinning, labourer, arrested for theft

Description

Name: William Glendinning Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 22 February 1915 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-258-William Glendinning The Shields Daily News for 1 March 1915 reports: ?THEFT FROM A LODGING HOUSE Today at North Shields, before Mr J. W. Munby and Mr A. B. Plummer, Wm. Glendinning (41), labourer, no fixed abode, was charged with stealing a suit of clothes and a quantity of provisions, value 1 19s 6d, the property of William Thompson, 37 Duke Street. The prosecutor said the accused and he were staying in the same lodging house. Witness missed the articles mentioned from a locker in the kitchen. He afterwards saw the accused in South Shields and gave him into custody. Evidence was given that the accused sold the suit at his second-hand shop in High Street, Gateshead, on the 13th inst. for 3s 6d. Detective Sergt. Hall stated that on the 15th inst., from a complaint made by the prosecutor, he made inquiries and found the accused had absconded from the lodging house. He afterwards received the accused into custody from the South Shields police and charged him. He replied, ?I took the suit and sold it to a second-hand dealer near the Half Moon public house in Gateshead?. Witness had not recovered the suit as it had been re-sold. Defendant pleaded that he was under the influence of drink. The Chief Constable (Mr J. H. Huish) put in 12 previous appearances against the accused before the Sunderland magistrates. The charges included gaming, brawling, stealing and false pretences. Accused was committed for a month.? These images are taken from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 (TWAM ref. DX1388/1). This set is our selection of the best mugshots taken during the First World War. They have been chosen because of the sharpness and general quality of the images. The album doesn?t record the details of each prisoner?s crimes, just their names and dates of arrest. In order to discover the stories behind the mugshots, staff from Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums visited North Shields Local Studies Library where they carefully searched through microfilm copies of the ?Shields Daily News? looking for newspaper reports of the court cases. The newspaper reports have been transcribed and added below each mugshot. Combining these two separate records gives us a fascinating insight into life on the Home Front during the First World War. These images document the lives of people of different ages and backgrounds, both civilians and soldiers. Our purpose here is not to judge them but simply to reflect the realities of their time.

17.42 Causes and Prevention of War (MIT) 17.42 Causes and Prevention of War (MIT)

Description

The causes and prevention of interstate war are the central topics of this course. The course goal is to discover and assess the means to prevent or control war. Hence we focus on manipulable or controllable war-causes. The topics covered include the dilemmas, misperceptions, crimes and blunders that caused wars of the past; the origins of these and other war-causes; the possible causes of wars of the future; and possible means to prevent such wars, including short-term policy steps and more utopian schemes. The historical cases covered include the Peloponnesian and Seven Years wars, World War I, World War II, Korea, the Arab-Israel conflict, and the U.S.-Iraq and U.S. al-Queda wars. This is an undergraduate course, but it is open to graduate students. The causes and prevention of interstate war are the central topics of this course.

William Morrissey alias Smith, arrested for sleeping rough

Description

Name: William Morrissey alias Smith Arrested for: Sleeping Out Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 11 July 1904 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-53-William Morrisey AKA Smith The Shields Daily Gazette for 11 July 1904 reported: "At North Shields, Charles Winlow (53), tramp, no fixed abode, was charge with lodging in a hay stack in Mariners' Lane without having visible means of subsistence, and was sent to prison for seven days. William Wadham, Tyne Dock, William Smith or Morrison, shoeblack, and William Patton, no fixed abode, were charged with lodging in a hay pike at Kenners Dene Farm. Wadham and Smith were each committed for seven days and Patton was committed for 14 days". For a mugshot of William Wadham see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/15870103783/in/set-7215762.... The Shields Daily Gazette for 7 June 1904 reports: "Two youths named Joseph Leach, 52 Wilson Street, and William Morrisey, no fixed abode, were found by PC Twiddy were found sleeping in a railway carriage on the N.E.R. siding in Garden Lane, at 3.15 this morning. Relating the facts to the South Shields magistrates the officer said that when he roused Leach that defendant set himself in a fighting attitude, while the other sat up on the seat, lit a cigarette and refused to leave ... The magistrates fined them 5s and costs each". Contemporary attitudes to rough sleeping can be seen in a report in the Shields Daily Gazette on 5 October 1903. "At Jarrow today John Smith, Wm Cooper, James Bell, young men who said they came to the town in search of work, were charged with sleeping in Palmers Works last night. PC Lowery gave evidence and Supt Fleming said that the county was 'swarming' with fellows like defendants, who should be made to seek shelter in the Workhouses. Defendants were sent to prison for 7 days". The Shields Daily Gazette of 8 October 1903 contains an article entitled 'Lazy Loafers': "There are some people who will neither work nor want. They are the typical loafers we can see in the streets any day. Apparently we have a fairly good stock of them at North Shields. It is not because of depression of trade either. The other morning no fewer than half a dozen of such individuals were place in the dock on a charge of sleeping out. The officer had found them all huddled together in an empty room during the night and they could not give a satisfactory account of themselves. When questioned by the magistrates, the police officers stated that all the defendants were lazy loafers, who had never worked for a considerable time. They did nothing but lounge about the streets during the day and then obtained shelter in some empty room or outhouse at night. The magistrates marked their sense of the offence by sending them all to prison for a month each - each with hard labour. A month of hard work will probably do them a vast of good and will enable them to shake off that habitual tired feeling". Morrisey was convicted on numerous other occasions. The Shields Daily Gazette of 5 November 1902 reported: "At South Shields today a youth named William Morrisey was charged with stealing on the 4th inst. a jacket of the value of 2s 3d, the property of James Davison". He was fined 10s and costs. The Shields Daily Gazette for 2 January 1903 reported: "Before the Mayor (Counc. James Grant) and other magistrates at So. Shields, on Wednesday, William Morrisey, 16, and Arthur Cairns, 18, were charged with stealing on Dec. 29th, a barometer, valued at 25s ... on the way to the Police Station Morrisey remarked "A couple of months would just about put me right" ... The Bench fined Morrisey, who had previously convicted for larceny, 10s and costs, and Cairns 5s and costs". The Shields Daily News for 10 July 1905 reported: "At South Shields Police Court today William Morrisey (20). no fixed abode and David McNess (19), Anderson's Lane, were charged with breaking and entering the dwelling house of Mary McCalvery on the 8th inst. and stealing therein two desks value 10s. Prosecutrix said she kept a green grocer's shop in Tyne Street and resided upon the premises. At half-past twelve on the afternoon of the 8th inst she locked up her house and shop, leaving two desks, which contained some valuables, on a desk bed in the kitchen. When she returned to her house at twenty past ten at night she found that someone had been in the house and that the desks had been removed from the desk bed on to the floor near the door. A witness deposed to seeing the prisoners loitering near the prosecutrix's shop. She afterwards saw Morrisey open the house door with a key and go in. She then informed the police. PC Ogg said from what he was told he visited the prosecutrix's house and on going inside he found Morrisey in the kitchen. He took him into custody. He afterwards apprehended McNess. The prisoner had nothing to say. This was Morrisey's 18th offence and he was committed to prison for 3 months; this being McNess's 1st offence, he was bound over for three months". These images are a selection from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 in the collection of Tyne & Wear Archives (TWA ref DX1388/1). This set contains mugshots of boys and girls under the age of 21. This reflects the fact that until 1970 that was the legal age of majority in the UK.

Description

Name: Jane A. V. Duffy Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 9 December 1914 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-250-Jane A V Duffy The Shields Daily News for 9 December 1914 reports: ?A YOUNG WOMAN IN TROUBLE. Today at North Shields, Jane Agnes Duffy (19), 61 Westcott Road, South Shields, was charged with stealing a gold brooch, a gold ring, and a silk blouse value 1 12s 6d, the property of Barbara Cunningham, Trevor Terrace, on the 27th inst. The prosecutrix said that at 18.15 pm on the 26th ult. she was in Bedford Street, when the accused was brought to her and she asked if witness could give her board and lodgings. She stated that she had just got work at a drapers and would pay her 15s a week for board and lodgings. Witness took her home. Next morning the defendant got up at 9 o?clock, and while witness was cleaning the step the defendant ran out by the back, and witness missed the articles mentioned. Detective Sweeney of Wallsend said he arrested the accused on another charge on the 28th ult. and found the items mentioned in her possession. Detective-Sergt. Hall deposed to recovering the property from the last witness and receiving the accused into custody after she had been dealt with by the magistrates at Wallsend. The mother of the girl told the magistrates that her daughter had no reason to steal, having a good home and having been well brought up, but she was rather weak in mind and had given her some trouble. The clerk enquired why the magistrates at Wallsend had bound her over for 12 months under probation. Detective Sweeney said that the mother and the solicitor representing her promised to put her into a home. Mrs Duffy said that Father Turner had promised to look after her and put her into a home for feeble-minded at Carlisle and an arrangement was made that she would go into the Harton Workhouse in the meanwhile. The girl, however, objected to going to the workhouse and wanted to go home. The case was remanded for a day.? The Shields Daily News for 17 December 1914 reports: ?SOUTH SHIELDS GIRL BOUND OVER. The remanded charge against Jane Agnes Duffy (19), Westcott Terrace, South Shields of stealing a gold brooch, a keeper ring and a blouse, valued in all at 1 12s 6d, the property of Barbara Cunningham, Trevor Terrace, North Shields, came up for hearing this morning. The case has several times been adjourned in order that a place should be found for the girl in a home. The Bench on one occasion expressed their opinion that they did not think she had been properly looked after at home. This morning, the Bench, after due consideration of the case and circumstances, decided to bind the girl over for twelve months in the mother?s surety of 40s, to be of good behaviour.?

Neptune Yard

Description

This photograph shows a storehouse at the shipbuilder Wigham Richardson's Neptune Yard. In 1881 the owner John Wigham Richardson made a large sundial, which can be seen here hanging on the storehouse wall. He also wrote a motto underneath: 'Watching these fleeting hours soon past, remember that which comes at last.' The storehouse was taken down when Wigham Richarson merged with Swan Hunter in 1902, but the sundial was preserved, and today it is in Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums' collections.

John Dowson, arrested for stealing from a gas meter

Description

Name: John Dowson Arrested for: Larceny Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 7 February 1905 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-65-John Dowson For an image of his accomplice Edward Roberts see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/19378323875/in/dateposted/. The Shields Daily News for 14 February 1905 reports: "THEFT FROM PENNY-IN-THE-SLOT METERS At North Shields Police Court to-day, before the Mayor and Mr J. Walton, Edward Roberts (19), messroom steward, Blyth and John Dowson (19), seaman, Wallsend, were charged with having stolen on the 30th ult. from an automatic gas meter at 33 Thrift Street the sum of 14s 8d, the moneys of the Tynemouth Gas Company. Mrs Cowey said that on the 30th ult. she was removing into the house when the accused came and asked to be allowed to look through. She told them the house was not to be let. In passing through one of the rooms Dowson put his hand on the gas meter and remarked it was very handy. They went away and next day witness found that the gas meter had been broken into and the box and money taken away. George Robson, a collector for the Gas Company said he had examined the meter and found that gas had been consumed to the value of 14s 8d. Sergt Hall said he arrested the accused in a lodging house on the 6th inst. He took them to the Bull Ring Police Station and charged them with the theft. They both replied: "Yes, that's right". There was a second charge against the prisoners of stealing from a gas meter at 37 Blyth Street, Percy Main, the sum of 2s 4d, the moneys of the Tynemouth Gas Company, between February 3 and 4. Similar evidence was given in this case. The accused, having obtained permission, were shown over the house and subsequently the money in the meter was missed. The prisoners admitted the charge and said that if the magistrates would allow them to go they would refund the money. Chief Constable Huish said he had only preferred two charges against the accused, but there were six or eight others. The prisoners were committed to gaol for 14 days in the second division for each offence - one month in all. The time spent in prison didn't deter Dowson and Roberts. Just over a month later The Shields Daily News for 18 March 1905 reported: "FOUND ON ENCLOSED PREMISES AT NORTH SHIELDS. SUSPICIOUS CHARACTERS SENT TO PRISON. At the North Shields Police Court this morning before Mr Isaac Black (in the chair) and Mr G.H. Stansfield - John Dowson (19), Gateshead and Edward Roberts (19), 53 Beaumont Street, Cowpen Quay, were charged on remand with being found on the enclosed premises of 9 Seymour Street, for an unlawful purpose, at 5 pm on the 16th inst. Both of the accused had been previously convicted of breaking into unoccupied houses and stealing money from gas meters, and they came out of prison as recently as Monday last. Mr Isaac Black (the chairman) said they had soon commenced again and as their recent imprisonment seemed to have been no caution to them, they would each be committed for six weeks with hard labour". These images are a selection from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 in the collection of Tyne & Wear Archives (TWA ref DX1388/1). This set contains mugshots of boys and girls under the age of 21. This reflects the fact that until 1970 that was the legal age of majority in the UK.

Description

Name: Frederick Mudd Arrested for: Larceny Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 3 April 1905 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-69-Frederick Mudd The Shields Daily News for 11 February 1905 reports: ?ANOTHER FISH STEALER SENT TO PRISON At the North Shields Police Court this morning ? Frederick Mudd, 17 years of age, residing at 13 Reed Street, was charged with stealing a quantity of haddocks, valued at 3s, the property of the Tyne Steam Fishing Coy, on the 10th inst. PC Spindler said that on Friday afternoon he met the accused coming from the direction of the steam trawler Tyne Belle, carrying a quantity of haddocks. A soon as the accused saw him he dropped the haddocks and ran away. Afterwards he arrested the accused and charged him with stealing the fish, to which he replied, ?I have nothing to say?. A clerk representing the Tyne Steam Fishing Company estimated the value of the fish, which the accused dropped at 3s. The Bench committed prisoner to gaol for fourteen days with hard labour?. The Shields Daily News for 3 April 1905 reports: ?LARCENY FROM A NORTH SHIELDS TRAWLER. A BOY ROBS HIS BENEFACTORS. At North Shields Police Court today, Frederick Mudd (17), no fixed abode, was charged with stealing 4s, the moneys of Frederick Marriott, mate of the steam trawler Volunteer, on the 30th ult. The Prosecutor stated that before the boat cast off on March 27th the accused came on board, and in consequence of the statements he made, he was taken to sea. When the boat returned on the 30th ult. the prisoner went ashore and witness missed 4s from his coat pocket in the cabin. PC Spindler said he arrested the accused at noon on the same date. He said he was very sorry he had taken the money. Witness found 3s in his possession and got 3d at a cook shop where the prisoner had left it. In answer to the magistrates clerk (Mr R.F. Kidd) the prosecutor said that the reason the accused was taken to sea was that he stated he had no father and no mother, and accordingly they took pity on him. Prisoner pleaded guilty to this charge, and also to a further charge of stealing 2s 2d belonging to the third hand of the same steamer. Ald. Elliot said that it was very bad and very ungrateful behaviour on the part of the accused towards those who had shown him kindness by giving him food and shelter. He would be committed to prison for six weeks with hard labour?. The Shields Daily News for 12 September 1905 reports: ?THREE MONTHS FOR THEFT At North Shields Police Court today, Frederick Mudd (17), Myock?s lodging house, was charged with having stolen a pair of Wellington boots, valued at 3s the property of Edgar Beal, a youth employed on board the steam drifter Seymolicus, of Yarmouth. The prosecutor deposed on the 10th inst. he missed the boots from the fo?c?stle, where he had put them two days previously. PC Spindler said he saw the prisoner on the Fish Quay yesterday morning, wearing the boots. He charged him with having stolen them, and he replied that he bought them from a man for 6d, but on the way to the police station he said he might as well speak the truth, and admitted that he stole the boots on Friday. Chief Constable Huish said the accused, who made his 7th appearance, had been previously imprisoned for theft. He was committed for three months with hard labour?.

17.432 Causes of War: Theory and Method (MIT) 17.432 Causes of War: Theory and Method (MIT)

Description

This course explores the causes of modern war with a focus on preventable causes. Course readings cover theoretical, historical, and methodological topics. Major theories of war are explored and assessed in the first few weeks of the class, asking at each stage "are these good theories?" and "how could they be tested?" Basic social scientific inference -- what are theories? What are good theories? How should theories be framed and tested? -- and case study methodology are also discussed. The second half of the course explores the history of the outbreak of some major wars. We use these cases as raw material for case studies, asking "if these episodes were the subject of case studies, how should those studies be performed, and what could be learned from them?"
