October 13, 1972

From the earliest times, readers have been fasci-
nated with books about scandals of illicit relation-
ships between the sexes. In many cases the scandals
have provided colorful drama in courtrooms on both
sides of the Atlantic. Materials from several famous
trials have been placed on display in the exhibition,
"Scandals-English and American," now on view in
the foyer of the Law Library, through December 31.
The display of books from the Law Library's
American-British Division collection focuses on trials
of human, as well as legal, interest. Included are
materials from the 1820 trial of Caroline of Bruns-
wick for adultery, instigated to prevent her from shar-
ing the throne with her husband, King George V of
Great Britain; the 1875 adultery trial of Henry Ward
Beecher, brother of Harriet Beecher Stowe and pastor
of the Plymouth Congregational Church of Brooklyn,
N.Y.; and the 1907-08 trials of Harry Thaw for the
murder of Stanford White, a famous American archi-
tect who allegedly had been involved with Thaw's
wife, Evelyn Nesbit, a musical comedy actress. The
Thaw case resulted in a best-selling book and the
1955 Hollywood film, "The Girl in the Red Velvet
In addition, rare books on English adultery and
divorce trials are on exhibit, including Trials for
Adultery: or, the History of Divorces... (London,
Printed for S. Bladon, 1781, Vol. 1), and Annals of

Gallantry; or, the Conjugal Monitor... by A. Moore
...(London, 1814, Vol. 1).
Two publications concerning more recent scandals
are also shown. They are The Trial of Stephen Ward
by Ludovic Kennedy (London, Gollancz, 1964), and
The Candy Murder Case by Paul Holmes (New York,
Bantam Books, 1966). Ward's trial in England in
1963 resulted in the resignation of John Profumo,
England's Minister of War. The other title concerns
Candy Mossier, a beautiful grandmother who was
tried in Florida in 1966 for the murder of her hus-

On Thursday afternoon, September 21, Jacques
Kayaloff of New York presented to the Library of
Congress the original manuscript of an orchestral
composition by the Russian-American composer,
Alexei Haieff. Entitled "Divertimento," this work
was written in 1944 and first performed in New York
on April 5, 1946, by the New York Little Symphony,
Joseph Barone conducting. The following year, on
January 13, 1947, it was successfully performed in
New York as a ballet, with choreography by George

Central European Division and now the Library's
Honorary Consultant in Slavic Studies.
Alexei Haieff was born in 1914 in Siberia and came
to the United States in 1931. He studied in this coun-
try and in Europe, and has won many awards and
citations. Among his achievements are two commis-
sions from the foundations established by Serge
Koussevitsky, and the resulting manuscripts are also
in the collections of the Library of Congress.


"The Horse in Motion," a showcase exhibit on dis-
play in the west foyer on the Ground Floor of the
Main Building, commemorates the 100th anniversary
of Eadweard Muybridge's "action" photography. The
single-case exhibit includes photographs and other
items representative of Muybridge's lifelong study of
human and animal movement.
Known for his photographs of Yosemite, Muy-
bridge served as an official photographer of the U.S.
Government in Alaska. In 1872 he was commissioned
by Leland Stanford, former Governor of California,
to settle a bet Stanford had made that a running
horse had all four feet off the ground at one point in

his stride. Eventually Muybridge proved conclusvely
that this was a fact and, his interest stirred, he went
on to photograph systematically the movements of
human beings and of all types of domestic and wild
animals and birds. In addition, he invented the
Zoopraxiscope, an instrument which simulated
motion by a revolving disc on which different phases
of movement were depicted.
Among the items in the exhibit are photographs of
the multiple camera apparatus Muybridge used at
Stanford's Palo Alto farm in 1877-78, where he made
the first successful lateral photographs of horses in
motion. Several examples from a series of 781 photo-
gravure plates Muybridge published in 1887 depict
the movement sequences made by a child climbing
stairs, an ostrich running, a vulture flying, and a
woman chasing another with a broom. Paper discs
which Muybridge sold with instructions for con-
verting them into a "home made" Zoopraxiscope are
also shown.
Muybridge's work dispelled misconceptions about
the positions of animal and human bodies as they
move and was of enormous value to both the artist
and the scientist. His innovations in photographic
technique and projection were major contributions
toward the development of the motion picture.
The exhibit will remain on view until January 5,


In a letter dated September 28, the Librarian of
Congress, L. Qtuncy Mumford, informed Joseph L.
Rauh, Jr., and Elliott C. Lichtman, attorneys for
Barbara Ringer, that he stands by his decision to
appoint George D. Cary as Register of Copyrights.
Mr. Mumford said that the Hearing Officer in Miss
Ringer's appeal, Ernest Waller, had declined to recoq-
sider his findings, in spite of the errors of law and fact
on which the Librarian pointed out his decision was
based. The Librarian, therefore, reviewed the findings
and recommendations a second time and, in addition,
reread the transcript of the hearing. He did not find
evidence in the testimony to support the charge that
he discriminated against Miss Ringer because of sex or
her support of blacks. Furthermore, he stated in the
letter that he had not.
The Librarian of Congress has statutory authority
to appoint the Register of Copyrights (17 US.C. 202)
and has exercised this authority.
