November 7, 2017 – Denver The Rocky Mountain Map Society will meet at Denver Public Library, 10 W Fourteenth Ave Parkway, at 5:30 PM in the Gates Room. This is our annual scholar lecture. Imre Demhardt from the Texas Map Society will present The Rio Colorado of the West: 19th Century exploration and cartography. This presentation introduces the explorers from the Spanish Entradas to Anglo pioneers like John Wesley Powell and their influence on nineteenth century (carto)graphic imaginations of the Rio Colorado of the West. Milestone representations of the river and its region do range from Alexander von Humboldt first ‘cleansed’ depiction of the area in 1811 to Friedrich Wilhelm von Egloffstein’s pioneering relief shaded map of the Grand Canyon in 1861 and Clarence Dutton’s geological atlas in 1882. They all contributed to shape our mental map of the Rio Colorado as one of America’s iconic riverscapes. Contact Lorraine Sherry (lorraine.sherry(at)comcast.net) for additional information.



November 7, 2017 - Williamsburg The Williamsburg Map Circle will meet at 5:00 PM at Williamsburg Landing. Donald L. McGuirk will discuss The Journey of the 'Yazoo Mingo' Moncacht-Apé and its Possible Influence on the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Moncacht-Apé was a Yazoo Indian interviewed by an early citizen of the Louisiana Colony (Antoine-Simon Le Page du Pratz) sometime between 1718 and 1734. Moncacht-Apé told him of completing travel to the Pacific Ocean and back, likely in the late 17th or early 18th century, 100 years before Lewis and Clark. On his return to Paris, Le Page du Pratz published a book that included the story of this Yazoo Indian. How this account affected the maps of North America prior to the Lewis and Clark Expedition, Jefferson's concept of the newly acquired lands, and perhaps even the very route of Lewis and Clark will be the subject of this Power Point presentation. Additional information from Ted Edwards <williamsburgmapcircle(at)gmail.com>.



November 9, 2017 - Damariscotta, Maine Matthew Edney from the Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic Education at the University of Southern Maine will be Skidompha Library's “Chats with Champions” guest speaker at 10 a.m. Edney has a spectacular background in the field cartography, the study of maps and especially the history of maps, and will be addressing some of the fascinating links found in maps that show many relationships across cultures over time. Some aspects of the intellectual revolution can be traced thru maps from the prehistoric times to now.



November 9, 2017 - Washington The John W. Kluge Center at the Library of Congress will host a lecture and public dialog on the topic of mapping in ancient Chinese and Persian cultures. Dr. Xin Conan-Wu, an associate professor of art and art history at the College of William and Mary will deliver a lecture entitled Mapping the Landscape: Vision, Memory and Place-Making at 4 pm in room 119 of the Thomas Jefferson Building at the Library of Congress located at 10 First St. S.E. This richly illustrated public lecture will explore the story of mapping the landscape in 12th-century China, when the center of politics and economy was shifting from the north to the south and military defeats spurred a new search for identity. Wu examines visual, physical and textual materials in poetry, paintings, prints, architecture, gardens, landscape and philosophy and explores the impact of pedagogy and ritual upon vision and place-making, as well as the relationship between education and natural environment.



November 9, 2017 – Washington The Washington Map Society meets at 5 PM in the Geography and Map Division, B level, Library of Congress, Madison Building, 101 Independence Avenue. Dr. Donald L. McGuirk, a retired physician with a keen interest in early world maps and cartographic myths, will discuss A Survey of the Stars and Stripes on Early Maps, 1777-1795. The first official definition of the United States flag reads: "Resolved, that the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation." The purpose of this survey is to identify, illustrate, and discuss maps that depict, in part or in whole, a flag meeting that definition. For additional information contact Eliane Dotson at eliane(at)oldworldauctions.com.



November 10, 2017 - Stanford, California The David Rumsey Map Center, 557 Escondido Mall, Green Library, 4th Floor, Stanford University; will have a one-day symposium: Time in Space: Representing Time in Maps. Senior scholars and curators will come together to explore a major challenge for mapmaking: how to convey time through the representation of geographical features. The visual techniques that we take for granted today, such as the stratigraphic map, required deep shifts in how people understood physical space, the passage of time, and aesthetics. Presenters represent the fields of geography, history, and art history, and will treat a variety of contexts, from East Asia to Europe to the Americas. Following a welcome by Karen Wigen and Caroline Winterer, there will be 3 very interesting presentations: Veronica Della Dora from the University of London will speak on “Lifting the Veil: Maps, Metaphor and Antiquarianism (17-18th century)”; Caroline Winterer of Stanford University will explore “The Art and Science of Deep Time”; and Bill Rankin of Yale University with share his insights on “Mapping Time in the 20th (and 21st) Century”. There is no cost for attendance, but preregistration is required.



November 11, 2017 - Canberra The map by Joan Blaeu, Archipelagus Orientalis, sive Asiaticus (Eastern or Asian Archipelago) is a historical goldmine; it records the first sighting of Tasmania and the first mapping of the New Zealand coast by Europeans. It became the template for all subsequent maps of 'New Holland', or Australia. After being acquired by the National Library of Australia in 2013 and displayed in the exhibition "Mapping Our World: Terra Incognita to Australia," the map underwent intense restoration. Now, after four years of conservation work, see for yourself the amazing results. Martin Woods, Curator of Maps, and Libby Melzer, conservator at the Grimwade Centre, will explain the restoration journey as it returns to display in our Treasures Gallery for a limited time only. Lecture will be 2pm-3pm in Theatre, Lower Ground 1, National Library of Australia, Parkes Place.



November 13, 2017 - Fort Lauderdale, Florida Discovering the World: Why I became a Map Collector, a lecture by Neal Asbury in conjunction with the exhibit: 100 Maps That Changed the World. Lecture will be held at 7-9 pm in Cotilla Gallery, second floor of the Alvin Sherman Library, Research, and Information Technology Center, Nova Southeastern University, 3100 Ray Ferrero, Jr. Blvd. Local collector Neal Asbury has built an important antiquarian map collection featuring maps from the 15th century onward depicting historical subjects and far flung areas of the world. Asbury will talk on why he became a collector and the importance of the collection in his work and life. Join us for a reception from 6 to 7 pm before the lecture during which wine and other beverages will be served along with a selection of cheeses. Free and open to the public, but you must register in advance.

November 13-14, 2017 - New York The New York Public Library, 476 Fifth Avenue (42nd St and Fifth Ave), has recently acquired access to Geocoded Sanborn Maps. Sanborn fire insurance maps provide access to large-scale maps for towns and cities across New York state covering the period from 1867 to 1970. The information contained within these maps includes outlines of buildings (size, construction materials, location of windows, etc.), street names, sidewalk widths, property boundaries and more. One can even find information regarding pipelines, railroads, wells, and dumps. The Geocoded version of Sanborn Maps contains GIS information that allows users to locate data by address or geographic coordinates. Users can also layer maps from different years on top of one another. Geocoded Sanborn Maps Database Training will be offered by the Library Monday, November 13 at 3 pm and Tuesday, November 14 at 11 am. At the completion of this class you will know how to use the browsing and search features, how to navigate the collection, how to understand the key and indexes, how to layer historical maps over modern maps and more. This resource is ideal for anyone interested in the history and growth of neighborhoods, towns and cities in New York state.



November 15, 2017 - Dyersburg, Tennessee Murray Hudson will give a presentation entitled The World of Historic Maps: Tennessee, Tennessee Valley, & the Southeastern U.S. inside the Dyersburg State Community College’s Learning Resource Center, 1510 Lake Rd., from 6:30-7:30 p.m. From the original state of Franklin to the settlement of the land along the Mississippi River, Hudson will talk about how the history of Tennessee’s boundaries are best told through maps. Hudson is the owner of Murray Hudson’s Antiquarian Maps, Globes, Books & Prints in Halls, Tennessee.



November 15, 2017 - New York Chet Van Duzer, noted map historian and author will speak about With Savage Pictures Fill their Gaps’: On Cartographers’ Fears of Blank Spaces. This free and open-to-the-public New York Map Society event will be held at 6 pm at Avenues: The World School, 17th Floor, 11 East 26th St. (between Madison and Fifth Avenues). Historians of cartography occasionally refer to cartographers’ horror vacui -- their fear or hesitancy to leave spaces blank on maps that might be filled with decorations. Some scholars have denied that this impulse was a factor in the design of maps, but the question has never been examined carefully. Van Duzer will undertake such an examination, showing that horror vacui was indeed an important factor in the design of maps, at least for some cartographers, from the sixteenth to the early eighteenth century. Please email Andrew Kapochunas <kapochunas(at)gmail.com> if you will attend.



November 16, 2017 – Chicago The Chicago Map Society will meet at 5:30 PM in Ruggles Hall in the Newberry Library, 60 W. Walton Street. Charlie Lunn and Brock Alekna will speak about The Rockford Map Company: County Plat Books for the Twentieth and Twenty-First Century.Most of us have had some experience with county plat books, a genre of atlas that had its beginnings in the 1850s and became ubiquitous in the last quarter of the nineteenth century. Plat books, which show the boundaries and ownership of rural property, are an essential tool for realtors and developers, and have proven their value as historical records for genealogists and local historians. Anyone who grew up on a farm in the twentieth century knows that the plat book persisted, not as a large leather-bound folio, but as a more modest booklet of maps, stapled or spiral-bound, and for many of us, the name on the cover was “Rockford Map Publishers.” Founded in 1944 by J. Q. Cummings in the basement of his home, Rockford Map Publishers began as a farm plat book company with all of the maps painstakingly researched, hand drawn and published by the founder himself. Rockford Map owns the largest and most comprehensive plat information record of its kind in the country and is recognized as a pioneer and industry leader. What started as rural farm mapping has now grown to include digital map products, custom mapping services and spatial parcel data throughout the United States. Senior Vice President Charlie Lunn and Marketing Manager Brock Alekna will give us a guided tour of the history and work of this venerable Illinois map publisher.

November 27, 2017 - London Discover many previously unseen maps of East Africa produced in the War Office in the late 19th century. Combining fine art, scientific rigour and political controversy, 19th-century map making was a formidable and often contentious task. British military map makers were well-occupied, and not merely on the home front. For 60 years they produced maps to support the development of Britain’s overseas territories. Not always intended for publication, some of the maps lack supporting explanation. Correct identification can thus provide a stiff test for Library staff. In this talk, map cataloguer Nick Krebs will reveal the fascinating stories behind the mapping of 19th century East Africa. Have Theodolite, Will Travel: Mapping Africa’s Magnificent Landscape will be presented at Knowledge Centre, The British Library, 96 Euston Road; from 12:30 - 13:30. Booking is available online. Enquiries: +44 (0)1937 546546 or <boxoffice(at)bl.uk>.

2018

January 4, 2018 – Chicago The Chicago Map Society will meet at 5:30 PM in Towner Fellows Lounge in the Newberry Library, 60 W. Walton Street. The members of the Chicago Map Society and the Caxton Club are pleased to present a special evening with Peter Hiller, who will share with us The Life and Work of Jo Mora, along with a very interesting Mora connection to The Newberry Library. Peter has been enamored, if not obsessed, with Joseph Jacinto “Jo” Mora (1876-1947) since he came upon his cartes (maps) in the mid-1990s—to the extent of having recently written an extensive biography about Jo currently published by the Book Club of California. Hiller’s immediate intrigue arose from his amazement at Jo Mora’s creative versatility and the outstanding quality of Mora’s artistic efforts. From pictorial maps, book illustrations, paintings, sculptures, printmaking and writing, Mora’s artistic talents were boundless. After growing up on the east coast, Mora ventured west to explore what he considered to be the changing west of the cowboys and Indians he was so fascinated with as a child. It was at this time that he passed through Chicago and would later make connections, the evidence from which remain in Chicago, and will come to light during this presentation. Jo’s later life centered around the history of California, his family and his abounding creative abilities that enabled him to provide food, clothing and shelter for them.

February 15, 2018 – Chicago The Chicago Map Society will meet at 5:30 PM in Ruggles Hall in the Newberry Library, 60 W. Walton Street. Carl Kupfer will speak about Land Surveying and Mapmaking Transformed. The science and art of land surveying, which started with rudimentary instruments, techniques, and hand-drawn paper plats and maps, has evolved into a realm and creation of highly accurate and virtually automated data platforms that rely on satellites for three-dimensional spatial positioning, interact with geographical information systems (GIS), generate digital data and mapping products, and alas, can spit out paper maps and charts on demand. Mr Kupfer will review the fascinating history of surveying from earliest times to the present, presenting examples of unusual surveys, instruments, techniques, and methods used to produce the end-product documents. He will then discuss surveying and mapping in the twenty-first century, and explain how the science of geographical information management in the digital age has transformed the fields of land surveying and classic cartography.

May 17, 2018 – Chicago The Chicago Map Society will meet at 5:30 PM in Ruggles Hall in the Newberry Library, 60 W. Walton Street. There will be a Book Party celebrating the publication of “Neighborhoods” by Emily Talen. This book is written in support of those who believe that neighborhoods are, or should be, genuinely relevant in our lives not as casual descriptors of geographic location, but as places that, in contrast to the ambiguous complexity of cities and sprawl, provide an essential context for daily life. Such neighborhoods would be identifiable, serviced, diverse, and connected; their primary purpose would not be social separation. The book is motivated by an awareness that not everyone is content with the neighborhoods current status hovering between valentine and social separator. Might it be possible to constitute neighborhoods that are more than a label, that reject segregation, and that are not hopelessly anachronous? Can the neighborhood be thought of as being more than a shaded area on a map, more than a 1920s era neighborhood diagram, and more than a handful of people living on the same street? Is it possible to re-instate some version of the historical neighborhood as something real and meaningful in 21st century urban experience? Additional information from Robert A. Holland <contact(at)chicagomapsociety.org>.

September 13-15, 2018 – Oxford The 7th International Symposium on the History of Cartography, co-hosted by the ICA Commissions on the History of Cartography and Topographic Mapping and the Bodleian Library, will be held at the Weston Library. The title of the symposium is Mapping Empires: Colonial Cartographies of Land and Sea. The organizers encourage contributions investigating the cartography of Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas as influenced by cosmopolitan exploration and imperialistic activity during, but not limited to, the ‘long nineteenth century’ (mid-18th to mid-20th centuries). The rise of European hegemony coincided with a scientific turn that underpinned the evolution of topographic mapping and hydrographic charting, and led to the emergence of thematic mapping. These colonial cartographies brought forth a rich legacy of mapping that continues to influence the aesthetics and authority of mapmaking today. In addition to conference presentations, technical visits and social tours in Oxford are planned as well as a post-symposium excursion. Additional information from Dr. Imre Josef Demhardt (demhardt(at)uta.edu).
