The first Oxford (APA-189) was laid down 17 April 1944 as M.C. Hull 657 by Kaiser Shipbuilding Co., Vaneouver, Wash.; launched 12 July; underwent trials prior to aceeptanee by the Navy; and commissioned 11 September at the Naval Station, Astoria, Oregon, Comdr. Paul S. Crandall in command.
After a brief fitting out period and shakedown in the Seattle and San Diego areas, O~ford embarked 1,478 troops at San Francisco and steamed for the Southwest Pacific 26 October 1944. She arrived Finsehhafen, New Guinea 12 November, and then operated between Hollandia and Noumea New Caledonia, as well as between Florida and Mamls Isiands.
O~ford participated in landing operations in Lingayen Gulf, Luzon, P.I. 11-13 January 1945 as a unit of TG 77.9. She then continued to transport troops between Leyte, Manus, and Wakde Islands. She also provided troop transport services during the initial landings at Okinawa 1-5 April, after which she steamed to Guam, to Pearl Harbor, and finally to San Francisco, arriving 11 May to embark replacement troops.
One week later she again steamed for the Southwest Pacific, this time to the Carolines, the Philippines, New Guinea, and Eniwetok, which she reached 22 July. On the 24th, she departed in company with three other ships for San Francisco, but two days out she had to put in at Midway to repack her stern tube. She then steamed independently for San Francisco 29 July but enroute was diverted to San Pedro, where she tied up the second week of August.
After voyage repairs at Todd Shipyard, San Pedro, and assumption of command by Captain J. C. Goodnough, Oxford called at both San Diego and San Francisco. She departed 23 August for Eniwetok with Army replacement troops. After calls at Ulithi, Manila, Subic Bay, and Japanese ports, O~ford returned to San Francisco in late November.
In January 1946 Oneford was released from the naval service for postwar disposal. Assigned to Commander, 5th Naval District, she arrived Norfolk, Va. 26 February, decommissioned 17 April, was redelivered to WSA the next day, and was struck from the Navy List 1 May.
Oxford received one battle star for World War II service.

Student who led Oxford vote to ‘cancel’ the Queen as symbol of ‘colonial history’ turns out to be AMERICAN
Matthew Katzman, 25, graduated from Stanford University and is now a doctoral student in &ldquocomplexity theory,&rdquo British newspapers reported on Wednesday.
As president of the Magdalen College&rsquos Middle Common Room, Katzman had tabled the motion to remove the portrait of the queen from the area, arguing that it is &ldquomeant to be a space for all to feel welcome&rdquo while the monarch &ldquorepresents recent colonial history.&rdquo
He is the son of commercial lawyer Scott Katzman, whose Washington, DC mansion is worth more than $5.5 million, according to the Daily Mail. Prior to Stanford, Katzman studied at Sidwell Friends School, a prestigious Quaker academy in the US capital that is the school of choice for presidential offspring.
Obama&rsquos elder daughter Malia was a student at Sidwell around the same time as Katzman. Her younger sister Sasha is also an alum, as are Chelsea Clinton, Nancy Reagan, and the children of Richard Nixon and Theodore Roosevelt. Grandchildren of current US President Joe Biden attended the school as well.
The revelation of Katzman&rsquos identity comes on the very day Biden is visiting the UK for the G-7 summit, his first foreign trip since taking office in January. The British government has already condemned the removal of the portrait, through Education Secretary Gavin Williamson.
&ldquoOxford University students removing a picture of the Queen is simply absurd,&rdquo Williamson had tweeted on Tuesday. &ldquoShe is the Head of State and a symbol of what is best about the UK. During her long reign she has worked tirelessly to promote British values of tolerance, inclusivity and respect around the world.&rdquo
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson endorsed Williamson&rsquos statement on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Magdalen College&rsquos president Dinah Rose disavowed the removal of the portrait and said the students involved &ldquodon&rsquot represent the College,&rdquo but said the institution &ldquostrongly supports free speech and political debate&rdquo and that it will be &ldquosafely stored&rdquo elsewhere.
The reign of Elizabeth II has seen Britain dismantle its globe-spanning empire &ndash a process that began just a few years before she ascended to the throne in 1952. The handover of Hong Kong to China in 1997 left London with only fourteen overseas possessions, mainly islands and enclaves such as Gibraltar.

Evidence for maintenance treatment
Although scientific evidence is scarce, clinical experience suggests that treatment interventions shown to date to have value in the acute management of the EDs do not guarantee long-term recovery. As discussed above, the utility of maintenance treatment with the SSRI fluoxetine in AN after weight restoration is still uncertain. For persons with BN, the Cochrane review of antidepressants vs. placebo (Bacaltchuk & Hay, 2003) demonstrated that the mean clinical improvement significantly favoured medication in the pooled shorter clinical trials (6–8 wk: RR 0.63, 95% CI 0.51–0.77) but not in the longer trials (>8 wk: RR 0.53, 95% CI 0.23–1.20). As shown in Tables 4–7, only a few of the acute medication trials for BN or BED have followed participants past treatment end. In a 4-month maintenance study (Pyle et al. 1990), 47% of bulimic patients who had responded to imipramine were randomized to imipramine alone, intensive group psychotherapy plus placebo, or combined treatment. Relapse rate was high (30%), but those patients receiving group psychotherapy alone or combined with imipramine, were the least likely to relapse. Romano et al. ( 2002) conducted a single-blind placebo-controlled study comparing fluoxetine (60 mg/d) and placebo in preventing relapse of BN during a 52-wk period following successful fluoxetine therapy. In acute treatment responders, continued treatment with fluoxetine improved outcome and decreased the likelihood of relapse. However, attrition rate was high. No data exist on long-term effects of pharmacotherapy for BED. Carter et al. ( 2003) recommend that once a successful response is achieved, medication should be continued for at least 6–12 months.
Welcome to Oxford Research Encyclopedias
"This article analyzes the particular affordances of comics as a medium of communication that make it especially potent for telling queer stories and challenging the status quo. I use the term affordance to describe that which the form of comics, specifically, makes possible. This study speaks to studies of community archives, zines and DIY media cultures, visual rhetoric, queer autoethnography, and queer feminist pedagogy. . " – By C Councilor
Free Speech, Civility, and Censorship in Education
"For Mill, freedom of expression and the collision of diverse ideas and perspectives drive the pursuit of knowledge. Both lead to new insights, guard against complacent attachment to conventional wisdom, and help to uncover the rational grounds for and meaning of doctrines that are already well established, but in danger of losing their vitality. .
