While looking for a door for the room, Jenny and I stumbled across some more oddities.
First is a collection of pocket books published between 1922 and 1943 by Emanuel Haldeman-Julius, a Jewish-American socialist writer, atheist thinker, and social reformer. Apparently there are still fans and collectors of these things. There were a lot more books than the 12 we picked up, but we snagged the ones that sounded the most interesting:
- Is War Inevitable?
- Are Americans Standardized?
- The Fraud of Spiritualism
- Science Versus Religion as a Guide to Life
- Freethought and Agnosticism
- How to Become a United States Citizen
- The Conflict Between Science and Religion
- The Origin and Development of the Atomic Theory
- Rules for Success in Business
- A History of Evolution
- Racial Intermarriage in the United States
- The Millennium: A Comedy of the Year 2000 Volume II
- Two Masterly Ghost Stories
I also picked up a Nebraska Eighth Grade Examination Question Book which was published in 1933 and belonged to a Charlotte Stephan, who wrote answers to the questions all over the inside of the book.
Finally, I found another Travelers calendar that’s in very good condition. This one is from 1943.
