Rebecca Lemov, Database of Dreams

Just a few years before the dawn of the digital age, Harvard psychologist Bert Kaplan set out to build the largest database of sociological information ever assembled. It was the mid-1950s, and social scientists were entranced by the human insights promised by Rorschach tests and other innovative scientific protocols. Kaplan, along with anthropologist A. I. Hallowell and a team of researchers, sought out a varied range of non-European subjects among remote and largely non-literate peoples around the globe. Recording their dreams, stories, and innermost thoughts in a vast database, Kaplan envisioned future researchers accessing the data through the cutting-edge Readex machine. Almost immediately, however, technological developments and the obsolescence of the theoretical framework rendered the project irrelevant, and eventually it was forgotten.

Lisa McGirr, The War on Alcohol

Prohibition has long been portrayed as a noble experiment that failed, a newsreel story of glamorous gangsters, flappers, and speakeasies.

Lisa McGirr is professor of history at Harvard University and the author of the award-winning history of the new right, Suburban Warriors. She and her family live in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
