Editor's Notes
Looking back to a school at war - Four Septembers ago, browsing in O'Gara & Wilson's, I found a well-used children's alphabet book. Its cover was missing but at the bottom of the first page were the publisher's name (Samuel Lowe Company) and copyright date (1943). I knew I was going to buy it. How could I not buy an abecedary that matched brightly colored letters with now arcane professions-…G for Glass blower, H for Hackman, I for Iceman, J for Junkman…?
