[Press photo depicting boys sentenced to read patriotic literature as punishment for producing anarchist leaflets on a toy printing press]
Cleveland, OH: Acme Photo, 1939. 8x6.25 inch press photo, very good, depicting two somewhat sheepish-looking boys, with mimeographed caption pasted on verso, reading: "Sentenced to read 'Americana' after prank. New Philadelphia, O. -- You'll find 15-year-old Eddie Mizer, left, and Bobby Stewart, 13, right, burning some midnight oil over such heavy tomes as a biography of Leon Czologos, assassin of President McKinley; a biography of Thomas Jefferson, 'The Citadel,' 'Magnificent Obsession' and others for the next year. The boys were sentenced to read such literature by Juvenile Judge J.H. Lamneck when it was found they had printed and distributed such leaflets as 'Join the Anarchists now or be sorry,' 'Hurray for Anarchy,' and others, on a toy printing press given them for Christmas.".
