About This Item

Chicago: Laird & Lee Inc., 1918. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR, Chicago lawyer, and educator Harry F. Atwood on the half-title page- "To Hon. Wm. H. Hays with the compliments of the author Harry F. Atwood". Will Hays managed Warren G. Hardings successful campaign for the Presidency of the U.S. and was subsequently appointed Postmaster General. After a year in that position, he resigned to become most famously known as the first President of Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America (MPPDA), which under his guidance published a blacklist of actors and workers studios should not hire, inserted moral clauses into actors' contracts, and published an informal list of suggested guidelines for film producers. When the Catholic Church formed its Legion of Decency and threatened nationwide boycotts of movies, Hays installed a more formal production code, called the Hays Code( later simply "The Code"), which became the virtual law of Hollywood until the 1960s. Atwood in his writings was opposed to "democracy" in its most pure form and he spoke out against all of the following: initiatives, referendums, recall elections, direct primaries, direct election of U.S. Senators, and the 17th Amendment to the Constitution. His writings were later held in high regard by the John Birch Society. Very Good, corners of boards rubbed, gilt titles at spine faded. A fascinating Association Copy of a classic Conservative text.. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. Association Copy.
