New quote, to replace Adams, #22:
"Nothing is more important to America than citizenship; there is more assurance of our future in the individual character of our citizens than in any proposal I, and all the wise advisers I can gather, can ever put into effect in Washington." Warren G. Harding
possible LOC image:
BIO: Warren G. Harding was President from 1921-23, after serving one term as the U.S. Senator from Ohio. A conservative Republican, Harding campaigned on a "Return to Normalcy" and "America First." In his inaugural address, he said: "Our most dangerous tendency is to expect too much from the government and at the same time do too little for it."

32 MASON: Here is a better resolution version of the image we had in here initially of Senate chamber. Need to drop current one since we’ve already used it. See how this looks:
Old Senate Chamber, 1848
33 Artwork in Capitol Rotunda
34 West front, U.S. Capitol building
35 Benjamin Latrobe drawing of U.S. Capitol, 1806
36 U.S. Capitol and nearby buildings, 1839
37 Senator Henry Clay proposing Compromise of 1850 to save Union

39 U.S. Capitol building seen from Pennsylvania Avenue

41 George Washington’s handwritten copy of first inaugural address, 1789
42 U.S. Capitol, c1920 (?) (ELAINE- Can you track down better date somehow?)
The only information on the Library site is that the photo is from [between 1918 and 1920]. I think the Library would have the best information available.

tweaks to Civic Quotes images from Ken (11/23):
-Is a higher res version of #7 available? Is OK, but nice if sharper.
This was the highest res I could find unfortunately
-I'd move #18 toward the back. Have another Barbara Jordan quote coming up in #20, and better image there.
-wrong quote for #20
-Should separate images 20 and 22 more. Both B&W at bus station.
-Is higher res version of #23 available?
I believe this is the highest resolution we have. Elaine? Yes.
-possible image to replace #32 (which repeats image used in #7)
Have a new image here, let's push this one through to the final round of review.
-wrong quote for #33.
-I'd separate 34, 35, 36 a little more. All three images of Capitol.
-I'd move back #43 a bit. Similar to other Dirksen quote a few images earlier.
-I'd separate 51 and 53 images a bit. Somewhat similar look.
-wrong quote for #54
-Move #55 to somewhere in the first 10 images. Great Brandeis quote.
-I'd separate 60 and 61 a bit. Similar shaped images.
-I'd switch #63 to be #64- JFK quote nice way to end, and move up the RFK image (now #64) to some earlier spot so not so close to JFK.
Images didn't come up for 48, 62
