Content Roundup – Third Week – August 2018

Leslie’s illustrated weekly newspaper, v. 126, no. 3275, June 15, 1918

Newly digitized this week are more issues from one hundred years ago (1918) from Leslie’s illustrated weekly newspaper covering the US war effort. The front covers of all periodicals was closely controlled and laden with propaganda as can be seen on the above “Hearts of the World” illustration from the June 15 issue with the heart of Germany is pejoratively depicted. Other items this week include several story paper issues and the first digitized issue of the young adult “Lone Scout: a real Boys’ magazine” – the house periodical of the Lone Scout movement – which later merges into the Boy Scouts; this issue – from January 1918 – depicts an adolescent boy knitting to support the war effort.
