The Addams Household: an Evilution by Kevin Miserocchi
Product Description
The ‘evilution’ of Charles Addams's singularly eccentric family began long before the television and film interpretations made them icons of American popular culture. Addams first created Morticia, Lurch, and The Thing in a cartoon published in a 1938 issue of the New Yorker—though he hadn't named them at the time, or even conceived of a family unit. (When he did name the deadly matriarch, he was inspired by the Yellow Pages listing for ‘Morticians.’) Other characters were born and developed in a multitude of Addams's cartoons over the next twenty-six years, before the cheerfully creepy clan debuted on ABC television in 1964 and later on the big screen, twice, in 1991 and 1993.

The Addams Family: An Evilution is the first book to trace The Addams Family history, presenting more than 200 cartoons created by Charles Addams (American, 1912-1988) throughout his prolific career; many have never been published before. Text by H. Kevin Miserocchi, director of the Tee and Charles Addams Foundation, offers a revealing chronology of each character's evolution (for instance, did you know that Addams originally named Pugsley ‘Pubert’?), while Addams's own incisive character descriptions, originally penned for the benefit of the television show producers, introduce each chapter. As the presence of the Family continues to permeate generation after generation, and in celebration of the Broadway musical debuting in 2010, this book reminds us where these oddly lovable characters came from and, in doing so, offers a lasting tribute to one of America's greatest humorists. A phenomenon of rare proportion, The Addams Family is the manifestation of one artist's dark but irresistible wit, expressed with an uncommonly deft hand.

224 pages with more than 200 cartoons (approximately 50 are published here for the first time), many in color. Ten chapters explore each Addams Family character, as well as their mansion (a “House To Die For”). Size: 8 x 10 inches. Smyth-sewn casebound book with jacket.

Product Description

This lively biography of Adams details the life of a revolutionary, mother, activist and wife who engaged in the building of the America nation.

Abigail Adams campaigned for the education of women and pioneered the role women were to play in the American Revolution and the new Republic.  The life of this one woman forms a large window on society during the 75 years that saw the birth and cultural maturation of the United States.

Paperback, brief, and inexpensive, each interpretative biography in this series focuses on a figure whose actions and ideas significantly influenced the course of American history and national life. At the same time, each biography relates the life of its subject to the broader themes and developments of the times.

Hobbton's Sumner, Holly Springs' Meyers win Charlie Adams Scholarships - HighSchoolOT

Apr 30, 2015. Elvie Sumner of Hobbton High School and Joseph Meyers of Holly Springs High School have been named winners of the sixth annual Charles Adams Endowed Scholarships awarded by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association. The two outstanding student-athletes will be recognized at the NCHSAA’s Annual Meeting on May 7 at the Dean E. Smith Center on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The scholarships are made possible through the generosity of donors to the fund in honor of the long-time NCHSAA executive director, who retired in 2010 after 42 years with the organization. He was inducted into the NCHSAA Hall of Fame in 2009, is a member of the National High School Sports Hall of Fame, and is also the only North Carolinian ever to serve as president of the National Federation of State High School Associations. Sumner has participated in cross country, indoor track and field, and outdoor track and field during her career at Hobbton, but her story actually starts in Latvia. She served as captain of the cross country team and made all-conference in that sport. The Hobbton student has been a Junior Marshal and is a member of the Beta Club, taking a variety of Advanced Placement and honors classes. Meyers is an outstanding wrestler who has lettered three years in the sport at Holly Springs and was captain of this year’s squad. The Holly Springs student-athlete qualified for the “A” Honor Roll for four years, is a member of the National Honor Society and was a junior marshal. He is the founder and president of the “History of Gaming” club at his school and served as a student ambassador for a trip to China in 2012. Joseph is also a member of the Tri-M Music Honor Society and a member of Colla Voce, the school’s... One scholarship award annually recognizes a male wrestler in memory of Charlie and Sue’s son Scott, who was the first individual wrestler from Chapel Hill High School to compete in the state wrestling championships. One goes to a female cross-country runner in honor of Charlie’s daughter Michelle Adams Szwajkun, who participated in cross country at Chapel Hill and ran on the 1984 state championship team. "We are pleased to honor Charlie and his family with these scholarship awards and are proud of the accomplishments that these recipients have achieved," said Davis Whitfield, commissioner of the NCHSAA.
