Knowledge About Modern Furniture
1. Career of modern furniture
Meekin started his professional baseball career in 1887, with Scranton of the Pennsylvania State Association. He then played three years with the Western Association's St. Paul Apostles. In 1891, he jumped to the Colonels. A hard thrower, Meekin led the American Association in strikeouts per nine innings. He was reportedly one of the three hardest-throwing pitchers of the 1890s, along with Hall of Famers Cy Young and Amos Rusie. That trio was probably the main reason why baseball decided to move the pitching mound back from 50 feet to 60 feet, 6 inches. Meekin was also a "head-hunter." He once stated that when facing a good hitter, the first two pitches should come "within an inch of his head or body."
Meekin posted several below-average pitching seasons early in his major league career; in 1893, he went just 10-15. However, in 1894, he was traded to the New York Giants. He immediately had the best season of his career, teaming up with Rusie to provide the ultimate 1-2 pitching staff of the era. Together, they led New York to a second place regular season finish. Meekin pitched 418 innings and compiled a record of 33-9 to lead the National League in winning percentage. He was second only to Rusie in wins and earned run average. His statistics also reflected both his speed and wildness; he ranked third in the league with 137 strikeouts but also finished third with 176 walks. In addition, he led all NL hurlers with 22 wild pitches. Meekin also hit three triples in a game that season, on July 4; this set a record for pitchers that has never been equaled.
After the 1894 regular season, New York faced the first place Baltimore Orioles in the Temple Cup series. Baltimore is considered by some to be the greatest baseball team of the 19th century, but Meekin and Rusie won two games each to sweep the Orioles in four straight.
Meekin fell off somewhat in 1895. Battling a sore arm, he gave up 30 hits in one game that year, losing 23-2 to St. Louis. For some reason, he was not removed from the game, even though several times, he "staggered when about to pitch." Meekin won just 16 games, and his earned run average rose 1.60 from the previous season. However, he rebounded for two more 20-win seasons in 1896 and 1897. In one game in 1896, Meekin threw the first intentional walk in baseball history, to slugger Jimmy Ryan. The strategy worked when the next hitter struck out to end the game.
In 1899, Meekin was sold to the Beaneaters, which caused an uproar with the Giants fans. Collusion was suspected between the two teams, but the trade went through. Meekin had short stints with Boston and Pittsburgh before finishing his career in the minor leagues. He pitched in semi-pro games in New York as late as 1905.
Meekin died in 1944, at the age of 77, in his hometown of New Albany, Indiana.
2. Life and career of modern furniture
From Peerson's will and the March marriage registers, it appears that he was the son of Thomas and Margaret Peerson of March, Cambridgeshire, in England. It is believed that Martin Peerson was born in the town of March between 1571 and 1573, as records show that his parents married in 1570, but a "Margaret Peersonn" was married in 1573. It therefore seems that Thomas Peerson died a few years after 1570 and that Martin's mother remarried.
In the 1580s, Peerson was a choirboy of St. Paul's Cathedral in London under organist Thomas Mulliner. Subsequently, he came under the patronage of the poet Fulke Greville. On May Day in 1604 Peerson's setting of the madrigal See, O See, Who is Heere Come a Maying was performed as part of Ben Jonson's Private Entertainment of the King and Queene at the house of Sir William Cornwallis at Highgate (now in London). A letter dated 7 December 1609 states that at the time Peerson was living at Newington (now Stoke Newington, London) and had composed several lessons for the virginals, which was his principal instrument. It appears that he had Roman Catholic sympathies, for that year, on the same occasion as Jonson, he was convicted of recusancy the statutory offence of not complying with the established Church of England.
Peerson then took up musical studies at the University of Oxford. In order to do so, he would have had to subscribe to Protestantism. In 1613, he was conferred a Bachelor of Music (B.Mus.) and was appointed Master of the Boys of Canterbury Cathedral. It is possible that he was the "Martin Pearson" who was sacrist at Westminster Abbey from 1623 to 1630. Between June 1624 and June 1625 he returned to St. Paul's Cathedral as almoner and Master of the Choristers; there is also some evidence suggesting he was later made a petty canon. Although all cathedral services ceased at the end of 1642 following the outbreak of the English Civil War, he retained the title of almoner and, along with the other petty canons and the vicars choral, had special financial provision made for him. Peerson is known to have been buried on 16 January 1651 in St. Faith's Chapel under St. Paul's. He therefore died in either December 1650 or, more likely, January 1651.
In spite of his Roman Catholic leanings, evidenced by the use of pre-Reformation Latin texts for his motets and his 1606 conviction for recusancy, Peerson's position at the heart of the Anglican establishment confirms the overall esteem in which he was held.
