Re: QUERY: "How Red is Your Little Red Schoolhouse?" (Cross-posted from H-US1918-45)

Dear Brian: I'm not sure where you can find the Zoll book, but E. Merrill Root published a pamphlet in 1953 with an equally incendiary title: "Just How Red is the little red schoolhouse?" I reproduced its cover page (showing a simian-like Soviet soldier injecting red venom into a one-room school) in my book "Small Wonder." Root's papers are archived at the University of Oregon, so that might be the easiest place to find the image. Please let me know if I can help in any other way! Fondly, JZ

Re: QUERY: "How Red is Your Little Red Schoolhouse?" (Cross-posted from H-US1918-45)

Dear Brian,
The booklet is indeed located in Fayetteville. It is in the Hargis papers, (Billy James Hargis Papers, University of Arkansas Mullins Library Special Collections, MC 1412); box 45, folder 54 "Communists and other subversives in education." It might not have shown up to the archivists because this looks like a previous edition, not published by Zoll in 1950 but by one "MA Pennington," 1949. I have scratch page images I will be happy to share with you before you make the trip.
