A Perfect Storm: The Collision of Hurricanes, Climate Change and Coastal Population Growth

Hurricanes pose a significant threat to coastal populations, but the causes of changes in the frequency of hurricanes are poorly understood. Long-term historical and geological records provide potential analogs for future climate scenarios and indicate that hurricane frequency has varied significantly. Most modeling studies suggest that we may experience more frequent intense hurricanes in the future as the Earth warms, but the historical and geological record indicates a complex relationship between ocean warming and hurricane activity. Jeff Donnelly, a climatologist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, will discuss the historical links between hurricanes, climate change, and the population growth along the coast.   Please register for this event by calling 401-846-0813 x110 or email hrockwood@newporthistory.org [post_title] => A Perfect Storm: An Evening with Climatologist Jeff Donnelly [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => a-perfect-storm-an-evening-with-climatologist-jeff-donnelly [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2018-07-03 15:51:15 [post_modified_gmt] => 2018-07-03 15:51:15 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => https://www.newportrestoration.org/?post_type=tribe_events&p=1890 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => tribe_events [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw [EventStartDate] => 2018-08-01 17:00:00 [EventEndDate] => 2018-08-01 19:00:00 )

The book documents Smith’s underground New York City "jazz loft," which was an afterhours haunt for jazz musicians in the late 1950s and early ‘60s. Frequent visitors to the loft included Thelonious Monk, Zoot Sims, and yes... even Doris Duke. Located in Manhattan’s Flower District, Eugene Smith’s loft became a late night meeting place for some of the most creative musicians of the mid 20th century, all documented in captivating photographs and audiotapes. Smith recorded the electrifying jam sessions that took place, along with a background collage of cultural snippets off of radio and television – President John F. Kennedy, James Baldwin, the 1960 World Series, Cassius Clay, Dorothy Parker, Norman Mailer – that perfectly capture a culture in transition. Fifty years later, Stephenson has dissected and elaborated on Smith’s unique archive, interviewing more than five hundred people he discovered in Smith’s materials.

Since its inception 11 years ago, the Doris Duke Preservation Awards have raised over $700,000 to support historic preservation. Doris Duke’s radical vision, on the founding of NRF in 1968, was to rescue and restore Newport’s oldest houses. The awards, which provide crucial support to NRF’s continued efforts in advancing historic preservation activities, is named in her honor.

Some saw decay; others saw a sleeping beauty. Urban renewal celebrated modernity, and historic preservation revered the past. These two forces were engaged in an epic battle for the future of the city. Through period photographs and compelling news reports, journey back to the old colonial districts of the Historic Hill and Point and witness the explosive firmament of the 1960s when an important chapter in Newport's history was being written. Doors will open at 5:00; the lecture begins at 5:30. We invite you to visit the special exhibition galleries before the program.
