This is a cool thing, whether you are an alum yourself or are looking for an ancestor who was a member. Looks like this was quite a bash, as brothers descended on the Hotel Hollendan for a five day gala -- December 27th to the 31st. It's interesting to note that Zeta Beta Tau was the first Jewish fraternity in the U.S.. It's not sectarian anymore, but it still was at the time of this event. The brochure measures 5-1/2"x8" and pulls out to reveal five printed page on the front and five on the back. Members came from City College of New York, Columbia, Pennsylvania.

Beautiful graphic on this little souvenir that must have been treasured by its young owner. Even though it covers the 1920-21 school year, this was still a very rural area, thus only 16 pupils of which a full EIGHT had the last name Weaver -- Pearl, Cora, Hazel, Opal, Sidney, Donald, John and Mearl. The others were Rhea Swaisgood, Viola Bartell, Gretchen Bartell, Helen Hershey, Vernie Ramsier, George Coffman, Ora Clason, and Ervin Williams. The teacher was James A. Weiler. View more info

It's amazing how scarce this is! The chart is enormous at 27" tall by 43" wide and offers primary grade children instant events and time-frames of the American Revolution based on the books by author, Jean Fritz, winner of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Prize. The material comes from these Fritz titles: And Then What Happened, Paul Revere?; Can't You Make Them Behave, King George?; What's the Big Idea, Ben Franklin?; Where Was Patrick Henry on the 29th of May?; Why Don;t You Get A Horse, Sam Adams?; and Will You Sign Here, John Hancock?

Beautiful condition and a fun collectible no matter which side's your favorite (well, maybe!) The game was held at Notre Dame Stadium November 13, 1948. The program measures 8"x11-1/2" and has 84 pages. It's interesting that the leading advertiser is Chesterfield cigarettes. Not only do they command the back cover, but also paid for a two-page color spread inside. Studebaker and Coca-Cola likewise sprang for color advertising. Pictures of the campus, staff, and Notre Dame players abound, as do photos of the Northwestern team. I did a little research and it seems that the Fighting Irish ended ... View more info

Booklet has pristine pages and is very tightly bound with no names or writing. The white cover was gently cleaned, but some of the soil of the years lightly remained and I am reluctant to use anything stronger. Overall it is really quite nice. It measures 6-1.4"x9-1/2" and has 52 pages. Booklet was published to celebrate the Centennial of the Founding of Western Reserve Academy and College April 26, 1826 at Hudson, Ohio. The school remains in operation to this day. Booklet tells its history and provides black and white photographs. Not commonly found. View more info

Very nice book, designed in a pleasing style and tied with cording. Measures 8"x11" and has 68 pages of text and historic photographs. Oddly, there is no date, but it precedes 1923 because a timeline for progress on the current university construction shows that the library, the hospital and Wells Hall were all scheduled for completion by 1923-24. A nice look at the university, the town and the people -- even the ads are interesting. View more info

How nice to find programs for both the 1942 Baccalaureate AND Commencement for the Class of 1942 at Ohio's Oberlin College. What's even nicer is the fact that this offering also includes the Commencement arrangements, plus a flyer for the Commencement Concert by the A Capella Choir and the Conservatory Orchestra. Oberlin was, and is, lauded for its fine conservatory. Everything is clean and nice aside from a little toning to the right edge of the choir leaflet and two small spots on the cover of the Baccalaureate program. 1942 marked the 109th anniversary of the college.

A very handsome catalog sent to would-be students. Of course it has all the information needed to determine what courses and majors are offered, classes to be taken etc., as well as the glitzy parade of color photos of student work which is most impressive. The really good part though is the full page black and white photographs of students plying their various arts. Each is full page and and most inviting.

Oddly enough, this is a rather hard to find magazine even though it encompassed alumni from all the federation's colleges in the United States and Canada. The magazine was published just twice a year. There are two ads at front, a color one for Gorham Silver and a rather plain one for Tiffany's. All others ads are at the back. This issue devotes a great many pages to "our saint", Saint Magdalena Sophia. Articles cover her sainthood, her life, her visit to Reidenberg, her life as an educator, and her supplementary works. Other articles include memoirs, a trip to Arcadie, the lost art of lette... View more info
