Just after I saw a photo of Fitzgerald’s resting place, I turned up this photo of Melville’s.

The web and Twitter are full of notes about F. Scott Fitzgerald, on his birthday, today. I’ve meant to visit him in Rockville for quite some time, but haven’t made it yet.

I've known for some time that Hart Crane was born in Garrettsville, Ohio, not far from Kent State University and not far from the road I travelled from Washington DC to Cleveland. I've never visitedand I'm surprised that I never heard about the site from the professors at Kent. Today I found out that there are at least two memorials to Crane right in Cleveland. There's a pretty nice-looking park in the flats. I need to find out more about the sculpture here, the park is site near a bridge, and a lot of the pieces in the park look as if they contain fragments from The Bridge.

There's also a more modest memorial on the Case Reserve campus, just across the street from the bookstore I used to work in. It's amazing that I never discovered this site.

Earlier this year I posted an image of one of Bradsteet’s books. Now, an image of Bradstreet herself.

But I don't think I'd turn up my nose at this offering.

PRESIDENT TRUMP, who as a candidate in 2016 derided as “pure political correctness” the plan to honor Harriet Tubman by featuring the Underground Railroad’s most celebrated conductor’s image on the front of the $20 bill, can rest easy: Thanks to the intervention of his treasury secretary, Steven Mnuchin, only likenesses of white men will appear on U.S. paper money for the duration of his presidency.... 

The Trump administration’s stock in trade is divisiveness, particularly where it concerns race and ethnicity. As usual, though, Mr. Trump underestimates the American people: Many Americans of every race despaired that the plan to honor Tubman was derailed, and that includes some Republicans. Among them is Gov. Larry Hogan of Maryland (where Tubman was born), who wrote to Mr. Mnuchin expressing his disappointment. The famed abolitionist, Mr. Hogan wrote, “more than earned her rightful place among our nation’s most pivotal leaders....”

Harriet Tubman is an American hero, not a wedge issue. As Mr. Hogan said, she deserves to be recognized by having her image enshrined on U.S. currency, much as her name adorns parks and monuments in Maryland.

Alan Turing, a founding father of computer science, revealed as new face of British 50-pound note 

The Washington Post tells the story of Alan Turing, just slated. to appear on 50 pound bank notes beginning in 2021. Amazing that Britain can get the new bill into circulation (along with the Jane Austen bill and the Stephen Hawking coin) but we have to wait until 2030 for a Harriet Tubman bill.

Gizmodo's coverage includes an image of the note.
