Excerpt from The McGill News, Vol. 1: December, 1919 In spite of the exacting nature of his duties as a teacher and administrator, Dr. Adams´ interest in research has never ¿agged. His investigation of the ¿ow of rocks under pressure and heat, which brought him in 1907 the coveted honour of Fellowship in the Royal Society of London, is probably his most notable single achievement in research. Various other studies have been successfully carried out, and the experience thus gained has been freely placed at the service of the Dominion in connection with the work of the Commission of Conservation and the Honorary Advisory Council for Scientific and Industrial Research, on both of which bodies he has held seats from the time of their creation.

Suicide Squad Vol. 01. Kicked in the Teeth:Suicide Squad The News Adam Glass
On July 11, 1767, in the North Parish of Braintree, since set off as the town of Quincy, in Massachusetts, was born John Quincy Adams. Two streams of as good blood as flowed in the colony mingled in the veins of the infant. If heredity counts for anything he began life with an excellent chance of becoming famous- non sine dîs animosus infans . He was called after his great-grandfather on the mothers side, John Quincy, a man of local note who had borne in his day a distinguished part in provincial affairs. Such a naming was a simple and natural occurrence enough, but Mr. Adams afterward moralized upon it in his characteristic way:- The incident which gave rise to this circumstance is not without its moral to my heart. He was dying when I was baptized; and his daughter, my grandmother, present at my birth, requested that I might receive his name. The fact, recorded by my father at the time, has connected with that portion of my name a charm of mingled sensibility and devotion. It was filial tenderness that gave the name. It was the name of one passing from earth to immortality. These have been among the strongest links of my attachment to the name of Quincy, and have been to me through life a perpetual admonition to do nothing unworthy of it. Fate, which had made such good preparation for him before his birth, was not less kind in arranging the circumstances of his early training and development. His father was deeply engaged in the patriot cause, and the first matters borne in upon his opening intelligence concerned the public discontent and resistance to tyranny. He was but seven years old when he clambered with his mother to the top of one of the high hills in the neighborhood of his home to listen to the sounds of conflict upon Bunkers Hill, and to watch the flaming ruin of Charlestown. Profound was the impression made upon him by the spectacle, and it was intensified by many an hour spent afterward upon the same spot during the siege and bombardment of Boston. Then John Adams went as a delegate to the Continental Congress at Philadelphia, and his wife and children were left for twelve months, as John Quincy Adams says,-it is to be hoped with a little exaggeration of the barbarity of British troops toward women and babes,-liable every hour of the day and of the night to be butchered in cold blood, or taken and carried into Boston as hostages, by any foraging or marauding detachment. Later, when the British had evacuated Boston, the boy, barely nine years old, became post-rider between the city and the farm, a distance of eleven miles each way, in order to bring all the latest news to his mother.
The advent of the twenty-first century was marked by a succession of conflicts and catastrophes that demanded unrestrained journalism. Hoskins and OLoughlin demonstrate that television, tarnished by its economy of liveness and its impositions of immediacy, and brevity, fails to deliver critical and consistent expositions of our conflicting times. Author Andrew Hoskins: Andrew Hoskins is Director of the Adam Smith Research Foundation. His research focuses on the theoretical and empirical investigation of today s new media ecology and the nature of/challenges for security, and individual, social and cultural memory in this environment. He has an established record of leading externally funded empirical research into the shifting relations between media, war and terrorism, media and radicalisation, and media and memory. His current work explores the relationship between connectivity, risk, and memory.
A TWO-BOOK SET NEW! The latest on the Adam Walsh story, longform journalism on UPROXX: ´´WHAT REALLY HAPPENED TO ADAM WALSH?´´ On July 27, 1981, six-year-old Adam Walsh vanished from a Hollywood, Florida shopping mall. His mother, Reve Walsh, left him unattended for several minutes, and when she returned, he was gone. Two weeks later,Adam´s severed head was found in a canal, and to this day, the rest of his body has never been recovered. John Walsh, Adam´s father, went on to champion unsolved crimes in his America´s Most Wanted television program, using his son´s loss as the impetus for his campaign. In 2008, Ottis Toole, a serial killer who died in 1996, was recognized as the man behind the grisly murder. This is the story we know well, but, everything may not be what it seems. True-crime author Arthur Jay Harris has been following the Adam Walsh case almost since its inception, and he first challenged police´s official statements when he posited that Jeffrey Dahmer, and not Toole, was the likely culprit for the crime. Harris´ evidence included seven witnesses that saw Dahmer at the mall around the time of the disappearance, along with a police report that stated that the infamous killer was living and working a mere 20 minutes away from the Hollywood mall where Adam was abducted from. Indeed, if you follow Harris´ work with ABC and The Miami Herald, you too may come to the conclusion that police fingered the wrong man. But, that´s not where Harris´ story and investigation ends. As Harris posits in The Unsolved Murder of Adam Walsh, which has turned into a two-book series, Adam Walsh may not have been murdered after all. What was your conclusion after years of research into the Adam Walsh murder? After shaking out what police and the medical examiners, and yes, the Walsh family, and the news media have put out about this case, there is only one takeaway that remains true: Adam Walsh disappeared. Everything else you think you know about this case is either absolutely untrue or is so unlikely that it´s essentially untrue. In short, the evidence against Ottis Toole, who police blamed for Adam´s murder, is between poor and none. Another police suspect, who they dismissed with little inquiry -- no less than Jeffrey Dahmer, who at the time was documented living no more than 20 minutes by vehicle from the mall, is a far more likely suspect. Dahmer: 11 severed heads. Adam: severed head. That and seven police witnesses who said they saw Dahmer at the mall at the time with or near Adam, plus Dahmer´s access to the same type and color of van reported by mall witnesses as the getaway vehicle, and a comparison including Dahmer´s mugshot to a police composite drawing from a stunningly similar attempted kidnapping of a child at a nearby location of the same chain store exactly two weeks earlier. But I made most of that case years ago, and my evidence was widely reported. What´s new in the case, and no less outrageous, is this: The dead child they said was Adam is overwhelmingly likely not him. And the only reason we could possibly know this is because when police closed the case investigation in 2008, 27 years after the murder, all the official agency case files finally became available, for the asking. Conclusive certainties in homicide cases are startlingly few and I don´t leap to them. But this is certain: In the now nearly 35 years since the homicide, there never could have been a trial, and never will be a trial, against any defendant for the murder of Adam Walsh. That´s not for lack of suspects; it´s because the identification of the found child as Adam can never be proven in court... ALSO READ: BOOK TWO: FINDING THE VICTIM
