1907 related - The People Against Tuberculosis, by Leigh Mitchell Hodges, 1942, special edition of 499 autographed by the author as well as Emily Bissell. This book is the original and most detailed version of the origin of US Christmas Seals. In 1907 the first US Christmas Seal was failing to get off the ground. Emily Bissell sought the help of a big city newspaper, the Philadelphia North American. Hodges worked for the paper and wrote a column called "The Optimist", which Bissell read. After Bissell's idea was initially shot down by the paper, she stopped to meet Hodges because she wanted to see what an optimist looked like. Hodges asked his secretary, if she was pretty. With the newspapers help, Bissell raised ten times what she was hoping for, ten times what was needed to save a small TB Sanatorium in the state of Delaware. $200.00
