He was dubbed "The Boston Strangler" by Boston, Massachusetts sportswriters during the 76ers' and Boston Celtics' rivalry in the early 1980s because of his ability to single-handedly dominate games against the Celtics, including Game 7 of the 1982 Eastern Conference Finals when he scored 34 points in the game.

(Image:Birmingham District copy.jpg) In 1919, Manning’s talents took him to Birmingham, Alabama, where he worked on a new design for the city. He recommended a radical resource-based plan which included “multiple neighborhood-based centers determined by available resources” (Karson, 2001). He also makes note of the importance of parks throughout the city stating that “the cities that are best designed have about one-eight of their area in parks and about one acre to 75 people” (Manning, 1919). This approach was in direct contrast to the then popular City Beautiful movement which emphasized monumental civic centers and Beaux Arts architecture style public buildings (Karson, 2001). The architectural design of the Chicago Columbian Exposition was based in the City Beautiful movement, but now, on his own, Manning decided on a different course following his own landscape theories which were based on the natural available resources. This idea was the basis for his creation of the “wild garden” which he applied to many of his landscape designs.


Association NBA 's Philadelphia 76ers from 1980 to 1988. He was dubbed "The Boston Strangler" by Boston, Massachusetts sportswriters during the 76ers' and Boston Celtics' rivalry in the early 1980s because of his ability to single-handedly dominate games against the Celtics, including Game 7 of the 1982 Eastern Conference Finals when he scored 34 points in the game. He also scored 30 points in Game 2, 39 points in Game 4 and averaged 26.4 points per game in that series. In late 1774, the First Continental Congress sent letters (Letters to the inhabitants of Canada) to Montreal denouncing the Quebec Act for being undemocratic and for promoting Catholicism by allowing Catholics to hold civil service positions and reinstating the tithe. John Brown (John Brown of Pittsfield), an agent for the Boston Committee of Correspondence, arrived in Montreal in early 1775 as part of an effort to persuade citizens to send delegates to the Second Continental Congress, scheduled to meet in May 1775. Carleton, while aware of this activity, did nothing to prevent it, beyond discouraging publication of the Congressional letter in the province's only newspaper. '''Fort Western''' was a colonial (Colonial history of the United States) outpost at the head of navigation on the Kennebec River at modern Augusta, Maine, United States. It was built in 1754 by a Boston land company ''(the Kennebec Proprietors)'' to promote settlement in the area. The fort was a log palisade with blockhouses which protected a store and warehouse. It was never directly attacked. From a high elevation a large rectangular enclosure commanded the river for more than a mile. Blockhouses 24 feet square and watch-boxes 12 feet square guarded opposite corners, and within stood a two-story main house 100 feet by 32 feet. In 1932, a Boston-based group won a new NFL franchise and was awarded the remains of the failed Newark organization. The new team would be named the Boston Braves, now the Washington Redskins. However, the NFL does not consider the Redskins to be a continuation of the Tornadoes, just as it does not consider the Tornadoes to be a continuation of the Duluth Eskimoes. Due to various transactions, it can be argued that the Kelleys Eskimos still exist today, at least indirectly. Edwin Simandl, a promoter in Orange, New Jersey; bought the defunct franchise for the 1929 season (1929 NFL season) and used it to promote his decades-old Orange Tornadoes to the major leagues. The Tornadoes moved to Newark (Newark, New Jersey) for the 1930 season (1930 NFL season) before going back to the minors. When Simandl handed the franchise rights back to the league, it was understood that the first new expansion team of the 1931 season would receive the Tornadoes' old franchise. Because of the Great Depression, no teams were admitted to the league in 1931. In 1932, a Boston group received the next expansion franchise and was awarded the remains of the Tornadoes organization. This group used it to start the Boston Braves. In 1933, the team was renamed the Redskins, and in 1937 it moved to Washington, D.C. where it still plays today as the Washington Redskins. However, due to the two-year period of dormancy, the Redskins and the NFL consider the Boston Washington franchise as a separate organization dating to 1932, and not as a continuation of the Kelleys Eskimos line. '''Boston College''' ('''BC''') is a private (private university) Jesuit research university located in the village of Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, USA. It has 9,200 full-time undergraduates and almost 5,000 graduate students. Its name reflects its early history as a liberal arts college and preparatory school (University-preparatory school) in Boston's South End (South End, Boston, Massachusetts). It is a member of the 568 Group and the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities. Its main campus is a historic district (Historic district (United States)) and features (Boston College Main Campus Historic District) some of the earliest examples of collegiate gothic architecture in North America. Beginnings Temple University was founded in 1884 by Dr. Russell Conwell, a Yale-educated Boston lawyer, orator, and ordained Baptist minister (Minister (Christianity)), who had served in the Union Army during the American Civil War. Conwell came to Pennsylvania in 1882 to lead the Grace Baptist Church while he began tutoring working class citizens late at night to accommodate their work schedules. These students, later dubbed "night owls," were taught in the basement of Conwell's Baptist Temple, hence where the university receives its name. The Grace Baptist Church quickly grew popular within the North Philadelphia area. A temporary board of trustees was created to handle the rapidly growing formalities associated with the church's programs. When the board conducted its first meeting they named Russell H. Conwell president of “The Temple College.” Within the coming months, Grace Baptist Church appointed a new board of trustees, printed official The league allowed the Maroons to suspend operations for the 1938–39 season (1938–39 NHL season). The Maroons' owners tried to sell to interests in St. Louis, Missouri. Earlier in the decade, St. Louis proved that it could support NHL hockey when the Ottawa Senators (Ottawa Senators (original)) moved there to become the Eagles (St. Louis Eagles). However, while the Eagles had drawn very well, they survived only one season, due to the high costs of traveling to Boston, Montreal, and Toronto (the Eagles had assumed the Senators' place in the Canadian Division in defiance of all geographic reality). The league was not about to give St. Louis another chance given the economic situation of the time. When fighting in the American Revolutionary War began, he organized and led a local militia troop of 60 men to Boston where he fought at the Battle of Bunker Hill as a captain in Colonel John Stark’s First New Hampshire Regiment (1st New Hampshire Regiment). He then volunteered to serve under Benedict Arnold during the difficult American expedition to Quebec (Arnold's expedition to Quebec). His journal is an important record for that campaign. He was captured on December 31, 1775, during the Battle of Quebec (Battle of Quebec (1775)) and detained for a year. He was released on parole in May 1776, but he was not exchanged until March 1777. commons:Boston
