French operatic soprano Emma Calvé is famed for her performances in the title role of Georges Bizet's Carmen.Calvé spent her early years in Spain. She studied principally under Mathilde Marchesi,one of the most influential voice teachers of the era. A fine actress, she trained herself by long observation of the performances of Eleanora Duse. After her debut at Brussels (1882) as Marguerite in Charles Gounod'sFaust, she won fame for her portrayals of Santuzza in Pietro Mascagni'sCavalleria rusticanaand as Ophelia in Ambroise Thomas’Hamlet. Her interpretation of Carmen, noted for its dramatic realism, was long considered the model. In 1925, she retired from the stage to teach. She wrote an autobiography,Sous tous les ciels j’ai chanté(1940; “I’ve Sung Under Every Sky”).

In 2011, Herman Darvick appeared on the “1775 Almanac”

episode of PBS'sHistory Detectivesas the “handwriting expert”

If you go can see the entire "1775 Almanac" episode

I was the handwriting expert contacted in the "1775 Almanac" episode on the PBS series "HistoryDetectives" which was televised on Tuesday, September 6, 2011. I was asked to identify the writer of the notes handwritten on the pages of the almanac, notes that recorded, among other events, the Battles of Lexington, Concord, and Bunker Hill.

The unknown owner of the almanac had used it as a diary. Filmed in the Library of Congress, I compared the writing in the almanac with a signed letter handwritten in 1779. --- Herman Darvick
