image: Class Notes headline Erving E. Beauregard, AB'42, Notables of Harrison County, Ohio (Edwin Mellen Press). This book narrates the stories of noteworthy people from a sparsely populated region of Ohio, including an early advocate of women's rights, a female explorer, statesmen, diplomats, writers, soldiers, and inventors. Beauregard depicts how the locale produced talented people and argues for confidence in an educated rural citizenry.

Jack C. Ellis, AM'48, Life, Contributions, Influence (Southern Illinois University Press). Ellis examines the Scottish filmmaker's accomplishments in detail, probing Grierson's motivations and personality and concluding that he, more than any other person, was responsible for the documentary film as it developed in English-speaking countries.

Berida Ndambuki and Claire C. Robertson, AM'68, We Only Come Here to Struggle: Stories from Berida's Life (Indiana University Press). In this autobiography, Ndambuki-with Robertson's help-relates her experiences as a Kenyan woman supporting 16 children as a trader and retailer. Her life story encompasses British colonial rule, national independence, and political and economic struggle.
