This is Cleveland (circa 1946)
10 This is Cleveland (circa 1946)
Cleveland, Ohio The League For Human Rights circa 1946 soft cover Very Good condition 
This booklet is not seen too often. I got it from a private collection, but it's stamped on the front #13 Collinwood High School Library 1946. This one is not about Cleveland history only insofar as it discusses its residents and their origins. The thrust of the 66 page text is to showcase and provide information on the various ethnic groups, their religions, and the problem of prejudice. What's odd is it left out the Irish who came in droves and settled on the west side. All told though it's a topic not covered too often. Measures 6" x 8-3/4". Only fault is the stamp mentioned above.

The story was not random -- the Japanese had a reason for it. The booklet examines that, as well as life for the African American in wartime America, both in and out of the military.

Atlanta, Georgia Institute of the Black World 1970 August, 1970, Black Paper No. 2 Card cover Fine condition

Ken Magazine July 14, 1938 (Hemingway. Dr. Robert Ley Hero Incubator for The Reich), Hemingway, Ernest
20 Hemingway, Ernest Ken Magazine July 14, 1938 (Hemingway. Dr. Robert Ley Hero Incubator for The Reich)
Chicago, Illinois Ken Inc. 1938 Vol. I, No. 2 soft cover Near fine codition 
Amazingly nice magazine with very little wear and pristine pages. Oversized at 10" x 13 -1/4" and no mailind label. The magazine launched on April 7, 1938 by the founders of Esquire, but it lasted a scant two years with two issues a month. It was political and controversial, so much so that Ernest Hemingway stopped writing for it after 14 issues. Here he has a short article titled Call For Greatness. The main story goes with the cover art, a piece about Dr. Robert Ley, head of the German Labor Front, who hatched a plan to create a "hero-incubator" which would seclude 4000 uber-blond children for 20 years after which 1000 would be the future leaders of the Reich. There are also articles about "bums" in the big cities and "The Negro You Never Know." This is a rather scarce issue and especially so in this condition. Only fault is a tiny loss of paper to tip of top right corner.
