Collier's Magazine: The    Nation's Weekly August 19, 1933 (George Creel, Railroad Troubles, Kathleen Norris, Babe Herman)
1 Collier's Magazine: The Nation's Weekly August 19, 1933 (George Creel, Railroad Troubles, Kathleen Norris, Babe Herman)
New York P.F. Collier & Son 1933 soft cover Robert O. Reid 
Striking cover art by Robert O. Reid sets the scene for August, 1933. Reid's work was frequently on the cover -- and it's no wonder why. This magazine is handsomely illustrated throughout with a nice mix of articles and fiction. The fiction writers include George Agnew Chamberlain, Stephen Morehouse Avery, Ruth Chandler Moore, Roark Bradford, and Kathleen Norris. 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.

Collier's: The National Weekly Magazine June 17, 1933 (Huey Long), Creel, George, Davenport, Walter
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)
7 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.

Springfield, Ohio Crowell-Collier Publishing 1945 soft cover Near fine condition 
WWII Collier's magazines never disappoint. This issue sports a portrait on the cover of Secretary of State, Edward R. Stettinius Jr. who also served as Chief of the U.S. Delegation to the United Nations Conference. 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."
