In part three of “Walking with Horatio Alger,” I take a train ride to Philadelphia’s Chinatown, spend an afternoon in a lonely academic library, drive to a Massachusetts cemetery while listening to Fats Waller, and relax at a party with a bunch of fun-loving kids. How can video help bring a 1909 edition of Ragged Dick back into some of its original spatial and temporal relationships?

  1. Many thanks for walking us on this path of space & time in the context of Ragged Dick! My ten year old son recently read this book and wrote an essay on it for school. This has added such depth to his reading. (By the way, I will be reading your posts and books, which I look forward to. Your themes and research are so aligned with my socioeconomic focus of culture, justice, and equity.)
