Navajo Textiles: By Laurie D. Webster, Louise I. Stiver, D.Y. Begay and Lynda Teller Pete. Denver Museum of Nature and Science/University Press of Colorado. Wealthy New Englanders Francis and Mary Crane began collecting Indian weavings and other Native American objects in 1948 with the idea of starting their own Indian museum. Previously, they were known for introducing Great Pyrenees dogs into the U.S., but their interest changed after Francis had a life-threatening illness.
“Hell hath no fury like the vengeance of mothers,” writes Jim Fergus in the sequel to his best-selling “One Thousand White Women.” Both books are based on a fictitious 1870s Brides-for-Indians program in which the government agrees to send 1,000 white women to the Cheyenne as brides, in exchange for an equal number of horses. The first book ended tragically, as government troops attacked the Cheyenne village where the brides lived, killing virtually all of them, along with their babies.
By Sandra Dallas, Special to The Denver PostThe 1960 murder of Adolph Coors III was one of Colorado’s greatest tragedies. The 44-year-old chairman of Adolph Coors Co., Ad Coors, was killed in a botched kidnapping attempt by Joseph Corbett Jr., who had escaped a California prison where he was serving time for another murder. The tragedy brought scores of lawmen to Denver, and J. Edgar Hoover personally assured the family the FBI would get their man.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
