Hi. I'm publishing a book with Cambridge University Press, and I'd like to obtain images from the 1950 publication, "How Red is Your Little Red Schoolhouse," to use in the book Post-WWII chapter. This pamphlet was published by the National Council on American Education (Allen Zoll). I cannot find it. Does anyone know where these booklets might be located? I've checked all of my university databases without luck. I've also checked with the University of Arkansas' library where Zoll's papers are located.

The U.S. Civil War from 1861 to 1865 resulted in a forging of a second constitution that in time transformed the structures of American governance. With the passage of the Fourteenth Amendment, the nation recast the relationship between the state and subordinated people. This revolutionary amendment created a national citizenship, set terms for southern states to reenter the union, codified new powers for the federal government, and spurred an enduring struggle for due process and equality under law that continues until today. The Fourteenth Amendment has no single legacy.
