There are only a few Hartts in the world, so the number of famous Hartts is not
extensive. But several Hartts have left us an interesting legacy throughout the years of
time. Here are some of them.
Perhaps the most famous Hartt of all is Edmund Hartt of Boston. The Hartt Shipyards
constructed the U.S.S Constitution, the famous fighting ship known as "Old
Ironsides". Built in 1797, this 44-gun frigate was 175 feet long, 43 feet wide, with
a displacement of 2000 tons.
On July 17, 1812, it escaped a squadron of seven British ships. On August 18, it
captuerd the British frigate Guerriere. On December 29, it captured the British
frigate Java and five smaller vessels. It continued to enjoy success throughout the
War of 1812, but after the war was condemned by the naval commissioners. A poem by Oliver
Wendell Holmes did what its former captains also did: saved the ship from enemy forces,
and soon it captured the hearts of its countrymen.
It now rests in Boston Harbor.

More than seventy years ago, a small child sat on his front porch listening to
the fiddle music coming out of his neighbor's hen house. In the cool darkness
of the Vermont evening, the sweet sound of strings, merriment and dancing
were like a beacon to the boy. His name was Harold Luce, and he grew up to
become one of the premier traditional fiddlers of his generation. Along with the
other members of Hartt Hollow -- fellow fiddler Wayne Doyle, guitarist
Mervin Comes and bassist John Doyle -- Harold's still weaving the magic of
that long ago summer night when music brought communities together. At
once fresh and familiar, the songs of Hartt Hollow transport you to a rapidly
vanishing time and place, and like old friends, are guaranteed to make you

Frederick Hartt, Author
For over twenty years, Frederick Hartt's History of Italian Renaissance Art has been

and entertaining, it is also a model of clarity and scholarly precision. Now, the fourth
edition of this
unrivaled classic is provided for another generation of readers. This newly designed
an extended presentation of the Quattrocento and Cinquecento in Florence, Rome, and
well as additional pictured works by north Italian artists and by Florentine artists of
The revising author, David Wilkins, has remained sympathetic and sensitive to Hartt's
approach while drawing upon the latest research to bring the text up to date. There are
colorplates, including fourteen details of Michelangelo's freshly cleaned, resplendent
frescoes. A portfolio of full-page color room views has been added as well, showing major
of art in situ. Many paintings and sculptures have been rephotographed specially for this
since they were cleaned and restored, and many more are now illustrated in larger size.
context is so important to the understanding of Renaissance art, information has been
added to the
captions indicating when a work is still in its original location. And, when known, the
name of the
patron who commissioned a work has been added. Frederick Hartt writes with authority and
eloquence on the sculpture, architecture, and painting of more than four centuries, and
Wilkins has respected and maintained his high standards. The Renaissance was an
fertile era, when, in a burst of staggering creativity, humanist painters rediscovered and
meaning to portraiture and landscape painting; sculptors fashioned life-sized freestanding
with remarkable virtuosity and revived the classical ideal of the nude; and architects
built edifices of rare grace and invention. Beautiful illustrations, fine writing, and
scholarship bring into focus all the elements of this multifaceted period. Fully indexed,
an extensive glossary and an updated bibliography, the fourth edition of History of
Renaissance Art offers a fresh and inviting design, displaying the extraordinary visual
material to full advantage.

God knows my name very well: he keeps yelling it often enough: "Jack Hartt, you bozo,
what are you doing now?!!" Isn't it good that he has already forgiven everyone who
gave their life to him? Just because his son gave his life for us. Who is in control of
