Henry Bauman’s ancestor traveled from Germany and settled beyond the Blue mountains, in what is now Lower Towamensing township in Carbon County.
Farmer was an active member of both the Farmer’s Union and Corn & Soybean Growers organizations as well as being an enthusiastic Democrat – often hosting large picnics on his farm each summer for elected officials and other Democrats in his region.
Early Life and Education
Bauman initially desired a career as a wildlife biologist; however, after working alongside Michael Meyer PhD’89 to examine PCB and dioxin loads in nests of osprey and bald eagles for PCB pollution testing purposes and climbing into their nests with him for testing, his perception changed completely. “This job seemed more fun!” Bauman recalls thinking. “You get to work with people while helping wildlife. ”
Bauman’s most ambitious undertaking was creating a map depicting the siege of Philadelphia. To generate interest for his ambitious undertaking, he printed advertisements soliciting subscriptions in several newspapers; describing his map as an artistic creation meant to give an accurate depiction of this landmark attack on this city.
Bauman is not only an accomplished model; she has written for national and international publications such as Time, People, US Weekly, Vogue Cosmopolitan Town & Country Allure Gotham Elle and Nylon among many others. Additionally, she has appeared on television programs like CBS Day & Date The Home & Family Show Caryl & Marilyn as well as ABC Caryl & Marilyn.
This collection is organized into six series. Awards/Commendations (1987-2005, undated) includes files with materials for Bauman’s awards as well as his curriculum vitae. Publications (1958-2002, undated) provides files pertaining to his various writing projects (although this series is missing some items such as his book “Towards New Perspectives in Folklore”). Finally, Conference Presentations alphabetically by name complete this arrangement.
