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.
