    James spent almost his entire academic career at Harvard. He was appointed instructor in physiology for the spring 1873 term, instructor in anatomy and physiology in 1873, assistant professor of psychology in 1876, assistant professor of philosophy in 1881, full professor in 1885, endowed chair in psychology in 1889, return to philosophy in 1897, and emeritus professor of philosophy in 1907. James studied medicine, physiology, and biology, and began to teach in those subjects, but was drawn to the scientific study of the human mind at a time when psychology was constituting itself as a science. James's acquaintance with the work of figures like Hermann Helmholtz in Germany and Pierre Janet in France facilitated his introduction of courses in scientific psychology at Harvard University. He taught his first experimental psychology course at Harvard in the 1875-1876 academic year. During his Harvard years, James joined in philosophical discussions with Charles Peirce, Oliver Wendell Holmes, and Chauncey Wright that evolved into a lively group informally known as The Metaphysical Club in 1872. Louis Menand speculates that the Club provided a foundation for American intellectual thought for decades to come. It was during this time he also had the pleasure of teaching a young Theodore Roosevelt. James is one of the two namesakes of the James-Lange theory of emotion, which he formulated independently of Carl Lange in the 1880s. The theory holds that emotion is the mind's perception of physiological conditions that result from some stimulus. In James's oft-cited example; it is not that we see a bear, fear it, and run. We see a bear and run, consequently we fear the bear. Our mind's perception of the higher adrenaline level, heartbeat, etc., is the emotion.

    In 1883, at the age of 24, Teddy Roosevelt stepped off a train in Little Missouri (later called Medora) in the heart of Dakota territory. He'd come to join the hunt for the last buffalo. He went back East soon after his hunting trip was over. After his wife died in childbirth in 1884, Roosevelt returned to the West to take a personal hand in running the Maltese Cross Ranch which he'd invested in the previous year. The ranch was doing so well, he established a second ranch, the Elkhorn, just a little further on down the Little Missouri River.

    In 1882, Calkins entered into Smith College as a sophomore. She studied for the year, but in 1883 with the death of her sister she took the year off from college and studied on her own. She then returned to Smith College in 1884 to graduate with a concentration in classics and philosophy. Upon graduation, Calkins and her family took a sixteen month trip to Europe. When she returned to Massachusetts, her father set up an interview with the President of Wellesley College, an all women's college, for a tutoring job. She worked as a teacher in the Greek department for three years until a professor in the Psychology department took notice of Calkins' excellent teaching and offered her a teaching position, as long as she studied psychology for a year prior to teaching. Mary accepted the position and began to look for places to expand her knowledge of psychology. There were not many options for women at the time looking for a place to study and graduate with a degree in psychology. Calkins decided to take classes at Harvard Annex, taught by Josiah Royce. Royce influenced Calkins to take regular classes through Harvard, taught by William James, w/ males as her peers. The president of Harvard, Charles William Eliot, was opposed to this idea; a woman learning in the same room as a man. With pressure from James and Royce, along with a petition from Mary's father, Eliot finally gave in and allowed Calkins to study in the regular classes, w/ the stipulation that she was not to be a registered student. The next few years, Calkins continued to excel in the field of psychology, working on more graduate work. On her work with James: I began the serious study of psychology with William James. Most unhappily for them and most fortunately for me the other members of his seminary in psychology dropped away in the early weeks of the fall; and James and I were left not, as in Garfield's vision of Mark Hopkins and himself, at either end of a log but quite literally at either side of a library fire. The Principles of Psychology was warm from the press; and my absorbed study of those brilliant, erudite, and provocative volumes, as interpreted by their writer, was my introduction to psychology. What I gained from the written page, and even more from tete-a-tete discussion was, it seems to me as I look back upon it, beyond all else, a vivid sense of the concreteness of psychology and of the immediate reality of "finite individual minds" with their "thoughts and feelings. James's vituperation of the "psychologist's fallacy" -- the "confusion of his own standpoint with that of the mental fact about which he is making his report" -- results directly from this view of introspection as immediate experience and not mere inference from experience. From introspection he derives the materials for psychology. "Introspective observation," he expressly asserts, "is what we have to rely on first and foremost and always...."

    Red Cloud is war leader and a chief of the Oglala Lakota (Sioux) since 1868. One of the most capable Native American opponents the United States Army faced, he led a successful campaign in 1866Ð1868 known as Red Cloud's War over control of the Powder River Country in northeastern Wyoming and southern Montana. Red Cloud's War was the name the US Army gave to a series of conflicts fought with American Indian Plains tribes in the Wyoming and Montana territories. The battles were waged between the Northern Cheyenne, allied w/ Lakota and Arapaho bands, against the United States Army between 1866 and 1868. In December 1866, the Native American allies attacked and defeated a United States unit in what the whites would call the Fetterman Massacre (or the Battle of the Hundred Slain); it was the event on the Plains to that point with the highest US fatalities. Captain William J. Fetterman was sent from Fort Phil Kearny with two civilians and 79 cavalry and infantrymen to chase away a small Indian war party that had attacked a wood party days before. Captain Frederick Brown accompanied Fetterman; the two were confident in their troops and anxious to go to battle with the Indians. They disobeyed orders to stay behind the Lodge Trail Ridge and pursued a small decoy band of warriors, led by an Indian on an apparently injured horse. The decoy was the prominent warrior Crazy Horse. Fetterman and his troops followed the decoy into an ambush by more than 2,000 Sioux, Cheyenne, and Arapaho. Combined Indian forces suffered only 14 casualties, while they killed the entire 81-man US detachment. Following this battle, a US peace commission toured the Plains in 1867 to gather information to help bring about peace among the tribes and w/ the US. Finding that the American Indians had been provoked by white encroachment and competition for resources, the commission recommended assigning definite territories to the Plains tribes. The Lakota, Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho bands, and others settled for peace with the US under the Treaty of Fort Laramie. The US agreed to abandon its forts and w/draw completely from Lakota territory.

    Bullock came to Deadwood, South Dakota, on August 1, 1876, whereupon he opened a hardware store. Soon after his arrival, Bullock was asked to become the town's first sheriff. He accepted the job and continued to operate the hardware store on the side. Bullock was as brave a man as one could ask for, and a crack shot besides, but even so he used his gun rarely. He preferred strong words to hot lead. Later in his life, Bullock owned and operated a ranch which bordered on Teddy Roosevelt's Elkhorn ranch. Bullock is credited w/ introducing alfalfa as a crop to the Black Hills on his very ranch.
