ATG Quirkies: Haldeman-Julius’ Blue Books: Education for the Masses

by | Jul 23, 2018 | 0 comments

In spring 2019,  Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas will be hosting a symposium honoring native Kansan and socialist publisher, Emanuel Haldeman-Julius . With help from his wife Marcet, Haldeman-Julius “revolutionized, if not created, mass-market publishing, making his products affordable to all.” Entitled Little Blue Books at 100: Haldeman-Julius’s Revolutionary Publishing Venture, the symposium will put the spotlight on a “career, which spanned over thirty years, and saw the printing and selling of “an estimated 500,000,000+ Little Blue Books, with over 2000 different titles…”

(Thanks, as always, to John Riley of Gabriel Books for providing ATG Quirkies)
