Description:
Washinington, DC, 1937. Unbound. Very good. One-page handbill (approximately 9" x 11.5") formatted to appear like a page from the Congressional Record. Storage folds, some beginning to split at the margin. Clean with some light toning. This handbill provides the text of Jenckes's speech in the House of Representatives on 6 December 1937 advocating for a Union Shop to be imposed upon the Woodward & Lothrop Department Store in Washington, DC in lieu of the long-established Company Union that represented its workers. In the speech, she additionally complained that Painter's Union No. 368, who wished to represent the workers, was unable to get newspaper coverage because Woodies was one of the largest advertising buyers in the District. Jenckes was the first female from Indiana to serve in the U.S. House of Representative. She was elected to the position in 1933 and held the position until she was defeated for re-election in 1938. The National Women's History Museum… Read more

Description:
Stalag IIB (Hammerstein, Germany), 1944. Unbound. Very good. This German Kriegsfangenenpost Postkarte (prisoner of war mail postcard) is addressed to Jodice's girlfriend in Watertown, Massachusetts. It bears an indistinct German town postmark and purple handstamp from Stalag IIB. A U.S. censor's handstamp that was applied before delivery is in the lower left corner. The card is in very nice shape. In his short message, Jodice inquired about his friends health, sent his love, and reported, "feeling fine & in the best of health . . . . I'm doing O.K., working on a farm as horseman."Stalag IIB was located near Hammerstein about 10 miles northwest of Koblenz. Jodice's message could well be untrue as the War Department identified Stalag IIB as the worst of the POW camps for Americans, noting in its final report that "Treatment was worse at Stalag IIB than any other camp in Germany. . . . Harshness at the base Stalag degenerated into brutality and outright murder. . . . Beatings of Americans . . . by… Read more
