Clara Barton's Missing Soldiers Office, Part 1

Vignette

Clara Barton - known as the "Angel of the Battlefield'' and founder of the American Red Cross - converted rooms in a Washington, DC boarding house into what she called the Missing Soldiers Office. She employed 12 clerks who worked with families searching for lost sons, brothers, husbands and fathers who did not return from the Civil War. The office closed in 1868, but was rediscovered in 1996 by carpenter Richard Lyons as he readied the building for demolition. Now, as preparations are underway to restore Clara Barton’s rooms to their 19th century appearance, we hear Lyons' story and tour the third-floor office that historians call a time capsule.

Q&A with Neil Sheehan

Q&A

Neil Sheehan talked about his book, A Fiery Peace in a Cold War: Bernard Schriever and the Ultimate Weapon (Random House; September 22, 2009). The book tells the story of the nuclear arms race and the Intercontinental Ballistic Missile through the eyes of Air Force General Bernard Schriever. In 1954, General Schriever was the head of a research team that led to putting satellites in space and the development of missiles like the ICBM.
21 years ago this month, Neil Sheehan sat for five 30-minute interviews about his previous book, A Bright Shining Lie: John Paul Vann and America in Vietnam. Those interviews subsequently were the inspiration for C-SPAN’s 16 year series “Booknotes.” Video clips from the 1988 program were shown to compare and contrast the two books and Mr. Sheehan’s experiences in writing each of them.
Neil Sheehan spent three years in Vietnam as a war correspondent for United Press International and The New York Times and won numerous awards for his reporting. In 1971, he obtained the Pentagon Papers, which brought the Times the Pulitzer Prize Gold Medal for meritorious public service. In 1989, Mr. Sheehan won the Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction and the National Book Award for A Bright Shining Lie.
