4 Boys Grown Tall; A Story of American Initiative (50 Cleveland Leaders, 1944)
Cleveland, Ohio The Plain Dealer 1944 Hard Cover Very good 
This book is not seen as often as you would think. I had one ten years ago and just now got this one. It was rather inexpensively put together, but it's a genealogical gold mine with fifty biographies of Clevelanders of the day. It's comprised of a group of articles reprinted in book form. They were originally written for the Sunday Cleveland Plain Dealer and appeared throughout March, April and May, 1944. Surnames included are: Black Cary, Case, Champion, Chapin, Codrington, Coe, Collens, Cox, Crawford, Dunn, Eaton, Eide, Emerson, Frackleton, Gerhauser, Girdler, Gund, Harshaw, Holliday, Hood, Hoyt, Humphrey, Johnson, Joyce, Klumph, Kulas, Ladds, Leece, Lewman, Lincoln, Martin, Mather, McCrea, McIntyre, Ogelbay, Otis, Reedall, Rivitz, Rogers, Rossiter, Sears, Smith, Stilwell, Weatherhead, Weaver, White, Woodruff and Wysor. Book measures 7"x10" and has 119 pages bound with a plastic comb. There's a drawing for each subject and lots of anecdotes.

Der Reggeboge The Rainbow; Journal of the Pennsylvania German Society July, 1979 (Fraktur Artist Christian Strenge)
5 Der Reggeboge The Rainbow; Journal of the Pennsylvania German Society July, 1979 (Fraktur Artist Christian Strenge)
Breinigsville, Pennyslvania The Pennyslvania Herman Society 1979 Vol. 13, No. 3 Soft cover Very Good 
I very much like these older issues of this magazine because they have just one in-depth article. In this issue it's about Christian Strenge who was a fraktur artist and German immigrant who settled in Pennsylvania. It's interesting to read, but especially interesting if you are doing genealogical research on the Strenge name. Magazine measures 6"x9" and has 24 pages. Only fault is a tiny round stain to lower margin of front cover. I have many of these from the 70's and early 80s, so if you are looking for a specific issue let me know and I'll see if I have it.

If you are interested in Pennsylvania German genealogy this magazine is a goldmine.

Washington D.C. Knights of Columbus Council No. 224 1947 soft cover Good 
Lots of names in this one, so excellent for genealogy. Pages and page edges are clean, as are dark blue covers, though the latter does show some dark spots to cover as you can see in the photo.

Also includes a full membership directory. Laid-in is a small slip of paper penned by former owner mentioning the presence of his father and grandfather by name.

Hebron Academy Hebron, Maine 1928 Catalog
9 Hebron Academy Hebron, Maine 1928 Catalog
Hebron, Maine Hebron Academy 1928 soft cover Good 
As you can see, the cover shows dampstain, but fortunately it appears much less on the blue endpapers inside the catalog. I might have passed it by if I didn't know how hard it can be to find these old school catalogs which are interesting and also helpful with family genealogy. There is also some foxing on the photo fold-out at the front and at the back of the book -- anywhere that the paper is coated. The bulk of the catalog is NOT on coated paper though, so it is showing no foxing. This school is still in operation and traces its beginnings to the 19th century. The catalog provides the names of the Board of trustees, the calendar of school events, school history, the courses offered and what is expected of students, and a summation of available scholarships and how to get one. There's also a roster of boys from freshman through seniors. The catalog measures 6-1/2"x9-1/2" and is tightly bound with 62 pages. Also of interest is a letter inside to a Roland Leighton of Cleveland from a competing school, Bridgeton Academy, of Bridgton, Maine hoping to get him to enroll there.

Memorial Record Nancy Bakewell  Munroe 1941 (Bakewell Genealogy)
10 Memorial Record Nancy Bakewell Munroe 1941 (Bakewell Genealogy)
Chicago. Illinois Unknown 1941 soft cover Very good 
This may have a connection to another item we have -- a booklet about the life of a Catholic priest of the 19th century, a Father Bakewell. This booklet is a memorial to the life and death of Nancy Bakewell Munroe, born in St. Louis, Missouri and died at the age of 85 in Chicago. The booklet is very clean and nice with cording and a tassel. It includes family genealogy, a list of her grandsons who were casket bearers, lists of people who attended and who brought food etc.. For some reason all names are checked. Loose inside there are several extras including an early holy card commemorating the 1927 death of a Nancy De Laureal Bakewell who died in St. Louis. The other items include a card for this Nancy (all were Catholic) and two newspaper articles about her. She was married to Otto M. Munroe and was as a child healed from a hip disease via a miracle associated with Madeleine Sophie Barat, founder of the Sacred Heart Order.

Cleveland, Ohio Western Reserve Chapter N.S. D.A.R. 1927 card cover Very good 
This is a fairly scarce booklet in above average condition.Pages are pristine with no names or writing. Uthe only fault is light toinign at spine area and a few small spot to back near spine.

The American University of Beirut Directory of Alumni 1870-1957
15 The American University of Beirut Directory of Alumni 1870-1957
Beirut, Lebanon Alumni Association soft cover Very good 
This is not something that would turn up too often, but I bought it from the estate of an American professor who taught there for some time in the 50's. It's very clean with just some light toning around the edges of the cover, front and back, with complete toning to spine from sun. It's tightly bound and measures 7"x9-3/4" and has 161 pages. What's excellent about it is the wide range of dates -- 1870 to 1957-- which means its helpful to a lot of people, especially those who are looking for someone without knowing exactly what years they were there. Nice genealogical item.

16 The Cody Family Association Directory 1952 (Letters, Family Tree, Anniversary Program Buffalo Bill Cody Laid-in)
London, Ontario, Canada The Cody Family Association 1952 1952 directory soft cover Good condition, good condition of ephemera 
If there is a Cody on your family tree this is an interesting genealogical reference which traces the descendants of Philip and Martha Cody of Beverly, Massachusetts 1698. The book measures 6" x 8-3/4" and is clean and tightly bound with some helpful penciled information here and there. Only fault is a rectangular brown area on first page due to an old crumbling newspaper clipping which I removed. The rest of the items are good and I have ironed them flat and sequestered them in a plastic bag. These include a Sunday bulletin from Trinity Methodist Church in Lakeland, Florida where the Cody family reunion celebrated the anniversary of Buffalo Bill Cody's birth. There is a also seven generation family treea letter from the buffalo Bill Museum in cody, Wyoming and a couple letters. All of these are dated in the 1950's.

The Crimson and Gray Medina High School 1916 (Ohio)
17 The Crimson and Gray Medina High School 1916 (Ohio)
Medina,Ohio Median High School 1916 Card cover Very Good Condition 
Very clean and handsome yearbook for the Class of 1916 at Medina High School, Medina, Ohio. The previous owner kept track of name changes for the girls as they married, so this is especially helpful for anyone working on Medina genealogy. of course the lower classes are given a nod too, but most of the focus is on the seniors as expected. There are club and sport pictures and info, plus alumni lists (going back to 1876) and great local ads. Really nice graphics and a sense of humor also makes it a fun keepsake. The yearbook measures 7" x 9" and has 111 pages. Very clean and tightly bound. If you are looking for a specific person I am happy to verify that "your person" is in there. Other early Medina yearbooks available. ADDENDUM: I just got a second copy of this yearbook. Very nice condition, but no name changes on this one. Buyer may choose either the name updates or no writing, whichever you like best.
