Research Resource

Dear fellow scholars:

I recently found out that the first three volumes of Encyclopedie Biographique d'Haiti  by Ernst Trouillot and Ertha Pascal Trouillot are available for sale, and I was able to buy those three important volumes. Each of the three volumes has about 500 pages.  Original dates of publication are as follows: Vol. 1: 2001, vol. 2: 2009, and vol. 3: 2016. The publication of Volume 4 has been delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Interested  researchers may secure more information or order by calling (917) 945-1392 or (917) 207-9898.


Re: The American and the Snob?

Ralph, I am not sure what you mean by "cheerleader." If you mean what we now call navalists, the UK had them in abundance. And not just the unthinking kind (although there were not a few of those, Kaiser Wilhelm comes to mind).
Here are some: Sir John Jacky Fisher, Pollard, Prince Louis of Battenburg (later Mountbatten), Sir John Jellicoe, Admiral Ernle Chatfield, and on and on, one might even include Winston Churchill, although he was more a chauvinist on that score at the beginning but his understanding that sea power underwrote British greatness was very firm.

Re: The American and the Snob?

While I neither know nor care much about the relations between Messrs. Mahan and Corbett I can comment on the social aspects. The English gentry was a relatively flexible institution by the C19 and C20. In essence, if you had the manner and speech of the gentry (allowing for fairly wide regional variation) and could afford to keep the style of the gentleman then you could win wide acceptance of your claim to gentle status.
