Last Saturday we had a great presentation by Bob Beck and Peter Zegler, dedicated detectorists. They shared their enthusiasm, Bob Beck’s fascinating collection of found objects and Peter Zegler’s stories of helping reunite people with lost things.
Metal detecting definitely seems like a great activity for a broad range of interests. We love the historical aspect, look at the antique coins, buttons and toys!

Picking Up Potatoes in Amagansett

This image shows three men picking up potatoes in a field in Amagansett. The potatoes are gathered in sacks, and the men appear to be putting a sack of potatoes into another empty sack. According to a note on the back of the image, this photo was taken facing north toward Main Street in Amagansett.

This photograph is part of the collection of the Carleton Kelsey Collection of the Amagansett Historical Association.

MOVIE TONIGHT:
POLLOCK (rated R)

Saturday ‪night 9/26‬, 6:30-8:30pm, at the farm museum, corner of Cedar and N. Main St. Bring lawn chairs, blankets, snacks and dress warmly!

Donations greatly appreciated!

Starring Ed Harris (nominated for best actor in a leading role) and Marcia Gay Harden (won best actor in a leading role), Jennifer Connolly and Val Kilmer.

Set during the 15 or so years from Pollock's (Harris) rise in the art world to his death. During his rise, his alcoholism and his wife, Lee Krasner (Harden) battle over him for control. Eventually, he settles into the Action Painting he's best-known for, becoming unbelievably famous overnight. His success continues until he loses control again.

“In August of 1949, Life Magazine ran a banner headline that begged the question: "Jackson Pollock: Is he the greatest living painter in the United States?" The film is a look back into the life of an extraordinary man, a man who has fittingly been called "an artist dedicated to concealment, a celebrity who nobody knew." As he struggled with self-doubt, engaging in a lonely tug-of-war between needing to express himself and wanting to shut the world out, Pollock began a downward spiral.”

The Farm Museum is so grateful for many wonderful pieces of history from the Fithian-Reutershan families, and the I.Y. Halsey family. Ellen Fithian Reutershan Halsey carefully preserved many significant items some of which we will be sharing at the Museum in the future. This photograph is a portrait of I.Y.Halsey and his team in the garage early in the 20th century. We are searching for names of men in this picture and a reasonable date for the shot. Please Help!!!

This Sunday, September 20th at 5pm the East Hampton Historical Farm Museum will host an outdoor chat with author Helen A. Harrison, director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center, and Gary Adamek, Ruth Appelhof's husband and long-time "partner in crime," about Ruth's new book, Lee and Me: An Intimate Portrait of Lee Krasner.

On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment was formally adopted into the Constitution by proclamation of Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby.

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and women’s constitutional right to vote, buildings and landmarks across the country will light up in purple and gold on August 26, 2020 as part of the Commission’s nationwide Forward Into Light Campaign, named in honor of the historic suffrage slogan, “Forward through the Darkness, Forward into Light.”

"The Suffragist, Vol. 1 No. 4, published on December 6, 1913, describes the symbolism of the colors. 'Purple is the color of loyalty, constancy to purpose, unswerving steadfastness to a cause. White, the emblem of purity, symbolizes the quality of our purpose; and gold, the color of light and life, is as the torch that guides our purpose, pure and unswerving.' Simplified, the tri-colors signified loyalty, purity, and life."

August 26, 1920- Ratification of the 19th Amendment. This was a momentous step forward in American voting rights, granting many (but not all) women the right to cast their own votes. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 was another important step. As we celebrate this historic victory, let’s continue to strive for equality for all.
