The National Geographic Magazine Vol. 09 - February 1898.

All previous issues that have been catalogued! :: http://librivox.org/group/438

I've turned the second article "Gardiner Greene Hubbard, Memorial Meeting" into a dramatic reading. Please claim a speaker from sections 7-18. Current open sections: 1 more voice needed! Thank you!
The National Geographic Magazine, an illustrated monthly, Vol IX, the February Number.
It includes the following articles:
  • Gardiner Greene Hubbard, by Rev. Teunis S. Hamlin, D. D.
  • Gardiner Greene Hubbard, Memorial Meeting
  • Geographic Literature
  • Miscellanea
  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/nationalgeograph91898nati (also linked pages in the MW)
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

    Previous projects show that 10 pages give a recording of about 25-35 minutes.

    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

    (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
    For this project, you may leave ID3 tags blank as they will be filled in automatically at cataloguing.

Thank you, Betty and Larry!

I am going to turn the Memorial Meeting into a reading with multiple voices (like a dramatic reading), so feel free to change any claims, if this changes your mind for some reason.

I hope having multiple readers turns out well!

Absolutely! And she seems as talkative as the guys! Fearless! I think it suits you well :D

Actually, I just noticed, Bell introduces her as Dr Caroline A. Yale, so let's use that! Please include a "Dr Caroline A. Yale read by [your name]", for the credits. :wink:

Oh, I'm glad you picked! I am sure it was hard among all these esteemed speakers :D

So for you, it's "General A. W. Greely, read by [your name]" for the credits.

Thank you, Kevin!

Section 18. I hope this is at least close to correct.

Well, she must be - she's got a whole university named after her... :wink:

Here comes Dr. Yale with a bit over 9 minutes, no levelling or anything else done with respect to volume, so you can do this during editing.

I wonder what Dr. she actually was... Given the contents of the speech, probably an MD?
Cheers,
Ava.

Thank you, Ava! PL OK!

I just read her wiki page, and it says that the crater Yale on the planet Venus is named in her honor. :D
