Two articles that stoood out was one by George Creel, who was an investigative journalist and politiican who served on the U.S. Committee of Public Information, which was actually a propaganda organization started by Woodrow Wilson. In his article he addresses the problems of the railroad industry in the 30's. The other article focuses on Babe Herman, the eccentric Chicago Cubs player. Magazine is oversized at 10-1/2"x13-1/3" and is quite nice with just a few tiny edge tears. Original mailing label at bottom front cover. The recipient was from Barberton, Ohio.

3 Creel, George, Davenport, Walter Collier's: The National Weekly Magazine June 17, 1933 (Huey Long)
Springfield, Ohio Collier's The National Weekly June 17, 1933 (Senator Huey Long) June 17, 1933 Vol. 91, No. 24 vo.91, no. 34 soft cover Very good condition 
This issue of Collier's is not about weddings, in spite of the never-ending train the bride drags down the aisle. It's just a little fun during the most important wedding month of the year. As for contents, the article on the bottom is IT -- How Huey Long Gets Away With It by Walter Davenport. The box under the author's name says this: "Investigate him! Impeach him! Expel him from the Senate! These are the cries that break in a crashing surf about the ears of Gentlemen from Louisiana. They come from the enraged and harassed people of his own state --and you would --say bode a politician no good. But Huey, surrounded by bodyguards, is unperturbed. He has a stronger hold on his folks back home than their love. Collier's sent Walter Davenport, to Louisiana to find out how Huey had slipped the state in his pocket. Here is the sensational story." There's lots of short stories and other articles, one about the presidential cabinet by George Creel. But this one is ALL about Huey Long! Great full page color ads too even in the Depression.

Collier's Magazine June 29, 1946 (Russia, Cost of TV, Native American Dance), La Cossitt, Henry (editor)
6 La Cossitt, Henry (editor) Collier's Magazine June 29, 1946 (Russia, Cost of TV, Native American Dance)
Springfield, Ohio Crowell Collier Publishing 1946 Volume 117, No. 26 soft cover Very Good condition 
Usually there's a name or two that jumps out of Collier's, but this time no luck. It's still interesting though with a hard look at what Russia was up to in 1949, penned by Frank Gevasi; an article about how much money it was going to cost to make TV mainstream; and Native American dancing by various tribes (beautiful pictures). There's also a really cool ad by Wurlitzer advertising a jukebox that looks like a work of art! As always, this magazine has fiction too. Magazine measures 10-1/4" x 13-3/4" and sports 82 pages. The whole thing is beautiful inside and out with a spine that feels like satin.

The main articles discuss the reason for meat shortage, the possibility of the U.S. and China working quid pro quo, and the collapse of the myth of Nazi Supermen. Literary buffs, especially fans of the Irish writer, Sean O'Faolain who has a short story here titled "The Trout."

Collier's Magazine Inauguration Number, March 6, 1909 -- Taft and Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft
8 William Taft Collier's Magazine Inauguration Number, March 6, 1909 -- Taft and Theodore Roosevelt
New York P.F. Collier and Sons 1909 Vol. XLII No. 24; News Stands Edition Soft cover Good condition 
I've had this for a long time and never knew it. I sold a Collier's yesterday so I looked for another. There are lots of good ones, but this one is -- WOW! There's an article by President Taft talking about the personality and career of Teddy Roosevelt and Taft's 19 years of friendship. There's also many photographs throughout plus Taft the Statesman from the bench to the presidency; the new president, Bill Taft at Yale; changes at the White House,the animals of Africa, and more. The magazine is not perfect, but I did repair it. The cover had pulled away from the staples and had a couple splits which I used archival tape to keep it together. I also added some new staples, so it's mch improved. The only other problem is some toning to the font. the magazine measures 10-1/4" x 15" and has 51 pages.
