SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Emperor Sushun

Emperor Sushun was the 32nd Emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. Sushun's reign spanned the years from 587 through 592. Before his ascension to the Chrysanthemum Throne, his personal name was Hatsusebe-shinnō known as Hatsusebe no Waka-sazaki, his name at birth was Hatsusebe. He was the twelfth son of Emperor Kinmei, his mother was Soga no Oane, a daughter of Soga no Iname, the chief, or Ōomi, of the Soga clan. He succeeded his half-brother, Emperor Yōmei in 587, lived in the Kurahashi Palace in Yamato. 587: In the 2nd year of Yōmei-tennō's reign, the Emperor died, despite a dispute over who should follow him as sovereign, the succession was received by another son of Emperor Kinmei, one of Yōmei's younger brothers. Shortly thereafter, Emperor Sushun is said to have acceded to the throne. Sushun's contemporary title would not have been tennō, as most historians believe this title was not introduced until the reigns of Emperor Tenmu and Empress Jitō. Rather, it was Sumeramikoto or Amenoshita Shiroshimesu Ōkimi, meaning "the great king who rules all under heaven".

Alternatively, Sushun might have been referred to as ヤマト大王/大君 or the "Great King of Yamato". He came to the throne with the support of the Soga clan and Empress Suiko, his half sister and the widow of Emperor Bidatsu; the Mononobe clan, a rival clan of the Sogas, allied with Prince Anahobe, another son of Kimmei, attempted to have him installed as Emperor. At the Battle of Shigisan, Soga no Umako, who succeeded his father as Ōomi of the Soga clan killed Mononobe no Moriya, the head of the Mononobe clan, which led to its decline. Umako installed Emperor Sushun on the throne; as time went on, Sushun became resentful of Umako's power, wanted him deposed. It is said that one day, he saw a wild boar and proclaimed, "I want to kill Soga Umako like this wild boar"; this angered Soga no Umako and out of fear of being struck first, Umako had Sushun assassinated by Yamato no Aya no Koma in 592. Emperor Sushun's reign lasted for five years before his death at the age of 72; the actual site of Sushun's grave is known.

The Emperor is traditionally venerated at a memorial Shinto shrine at Nara. The Imperial Household Agency designates this location as Yōmei's mausoleum, it is formally named Kurahashi no oka no e no misasagi. Sushun had two Imperial children.

Rockwell Light

The Rockwell Light is located on the northern harbor area of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, in Winnebago County, Wisconsin. The lighthouse was thought up by William Bray as a way to mark his harbor as well as the entrance to the Fox River. In 1909 Bray found an architect who drew up the plans but he died in that year before he could carry through with the work. Bray had the lighthouse completed in 1910. William Bray had paid for the lighthouse using his own funds. After commercial traffic picked up in the port the government realized the importance of the light so they paid some of its expenses; the lighthouse was sold in 1917 and changed hands several times before a restoration job was done the following year. In the 1920s the lighthouse was operated by the Cook & Brown Lime Company which shipped goods along the Fox River; the company owned the lighthouse until at least 1965, further future information is unavailable. At some point the lighthouse was deactivated as the structure no longer appears on the Coast Guard's official Light List.

Thomas Mills High School

Thomas Mills High School is a secondary school with academy status in Framlingham, England. The current Headteacher is Philip Hurst; the history of the school dates back to the beginning of the 18th century, when local merchant and Baptist philanthropist Thomas Mills stipulated within his will that money from his estate be used to "further the education of the children in Framlingham", as such the Trustees of Mills' estate established the first Mills School in 1751 on Brook Lane, Framlingham. The School was able to survive for one hundred and fifty years, during that time moving from Brook Lane to Double Street within the town; the School was combined for several years, starting in 1878, with the Hitcham School in Framlingham, before becoming separate once again in the form of the Mills Grammar School at the turn of the century. The Hitcham School continuing eventually becoming the modern Sir Robert Hitcham Primary School in the town. Opening in 1902 as an independent Grammar school for girls aged 8–16 with a starting total of only twenty five pupils, Mills Grammar School grew over the course of the 20th century submitting to local authority control in 1921, changing its age provision to 11-18 in 1945 and admitting boys to attend the school in the mid-Seventies.

By this time the traditional model of Grammar and Technical schools had fallen out of favour and local councils were encouraged to form all-admitting comprehensive schools for the purpose of secondary education. As a result of this Mills Grammar School was merged with Framlingham Modern School, established in 1937, beginning in 1976 under the supervision of latter's Headmaster, Michael Brown. Brown became the first Headmaster of the newly formed Thomas Mills High School opening in 1979, which exists on the site of the old Modern School utilising the pre-existing buildings and facilities, much of which continues to be used today along with many more modern additions; the original charitable trust established by Mills in his will continues to this day in the form of the Mills Charity, which has maintained a relationship with the school and has been involved and contributed financially to projects within it.
