About this Item

Yearbook for the Class of 1945, USNR Midshipmen's School, Notre Dame, Indiana. A few autographs scattered about, the cadet-owner's name inked on 2nd page, else text clean & bright; binding tight; minor wear to decorative cloth covers. 30-odd pages of advertisements including Coca-Cola, Studebaker, Bendix. The real prize, though, is a two-page spread featuring cartoonist Milton Caniff; one of the pages features a photograph of Caniff in the studio, sketching a young lady standing before him, as well as a formal portrait photo of Caniff, a short article describing the yearbook staff's quest to get Caniff to judge a beauty contest among the cadets' girlfriends, and a reproduction of the letter he sent in response; the facing page is entirely devoted to the drawing Caniff included with his response, an alluring, scantily-clad siren, tagged 'A Bit of "Lace" for "The Capstan" with My Very Best Wishes - Milton Caniff N.Y. 1945'. Scarce. Bookseller Inventory # S47-030462
