History is constantly in the making; the task of the chronicler, confronted with the ever increasing bulk of material, becomes one of abbreviation and elimination. How few names, how few periods, how few events, go to make up what the world ultimately sees fit to keep at the finger-tips of memory. (MI Pioneer and Historical Collections, 1907). An effort to catch bits & pieces of history slipping from the "finger-tips of memory."
