Slide art

This being a “visual world and I am a visual kid” I twist and turn every night thinking of the graphics to include in my slides, be that for the professional seminar or for the teaching lecture. In times of hurry I have always looked at the New School for Social Research who’s who of the history of economics it has a few pics and links which sometimes work. The website is updated in content but it looks as it did in 2000, if not before, which in web years is like 8 times 15, over a century… The HOPE group at Duke hosts the Warren J. Samuels Portrait Collection which has a lot of useful mugs. But if one wants a more broadly themed illustration, one must scavenge personal digital archive, go to Corbis at a price, or, check this site: Picture History; a decent database for social, political, business, and all other histories. The shame is that the pics are watermarked.
