To Win or Lose All: William S. Sims and the U.S. Navy in the First World War @ Naval War College Museum
Jun 23 @ 10:00 am – 4:30 pm
To Win or Lose All: William S. Sims and the U.S. Navy in the First World War @ Naval War College Museum | Newport | Rhode Island | United States

The Naval War College Museum presents a new exhibit, “To Win or Lose All: Williams S. Sims and the U.S. Navy in the First World War.” The exhibit occupies the museum’s gallery on the second floor.
To Win or Lose All explores the Navy’s role in securing victory for the Allies during the First World War. Under Admiral Sims’s leadership, American warships escorted convoys to France, laid mines in the North Sea, and hunted German submarines. On land, naval aviators flew scouting and bombing missions while Marines fought in the trenches east of Paris. While the sweeping naval campaigns of 1942-1945 may attract more scholarly attention, the foundation for their success was established twenty-five years earlier when the Navy operated for the first time as part of a coalition. Indeed, many officers who rose to prominence in the Second World War – Ernest J. King, Chester W. Nimitz, and Harold R. Stark, to name a few – gained valuable experience with combined operations during the first global conflict of the twentieth century. Curator Rob Doane hopes, “that this exhibit will encourage visitors to understand Admiral Sims and the sailors who served under him as real people who worked under difficult circumstances to meet the enormous challenges of wartime service.”

PPL’s 2018 Exhibition and Program Series @ Providence Public Library
Jun 23 @ 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm
PPL's 2018 Exhibition and Program Series @ Providence Public Library | Providence | Rhode Island | United States

Providence Public Library’s fourth annual Exhibition and Program series called HairBrained is focused on hair. Specifically, the exhibition explores the ways in which hair defines and reflects culture, self-identity, agency and politics while the program series, which is inspired by images and texts in the exhibition, will offer cultural programs and educational activities for all ages that explore how and why we have grown, cut, shaved, shaped, woven, adorned and covered the hair on our heads, from centuries ago until today.

The HairBrained exhibition features a selection of items from Providence Public Library’s collections: postcards, photographs, pochoir prints, magazines, historic children’s books, advertising trade cards and more. Items will be on exhibit in the Providence Journal Rhode Island Room on level one from March to June.

Public Demo of Emergency Communications June 23-24 @ Glen Park
Jun 23 @ 2:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Public Demo of Emergency Communications June 23-24 @ Glen Park

On June 23-24, the public is invited to meet and talk with Rhode Island ham radio operators and see for themselves what the Amateur Radio Service is about as thousands of hams across the USA hold public demonstrations of emergency communications abilities.

This annual event, called “Field Day” is the climax of the week long “Amateur Radio Week” sponsored by the ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio. Using only emergency power supplies, ham operators will construct emergency stations in parks, shopping malls, schools and backyards around the country.

Amateur Radio operators, often called “hams” provide backup communications for everything from the American Red Cross and FEMA, large events such as the Boston Marathon and the American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure, and even for the International Space Station!

From the hurricanes in Puerto Rico and Texas to tornadoes in Missouri, ham radio provided the most reliable communication networks in the first critical hours of the events. Because ham radios are not dependent on the Internet, cell towers or other infrastructure, they work when nothing else is available.

The Newport County Radio Club will be demonstrating Amateur Radio at Glen Park in Portsmouth on Saturday June 22 beginning at 2 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. We invite the public to come and see ham radio’s new capabilities and get on the air themselves with the help of a coach.
