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 go... View more info

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 s... View more info

I've had this for a long time and never knew it. I sold a Collier's yesterday so I looked for another. There are lots of good ones, but this one is -- WOW! There's an article by President Taft talking about the personality and career of Teddy Roosevelt and Taft's 19 years of friendship. There's also many photographs throughout plus Taft the Statesman from the bench to the presidency; the new president, Bill Taft at Yale; changes at the White House,the animals of Africa, and more. The magazine is not perfect, but I did repair it. The cover had pulled away from the staples and had a couple spl... View more info
