Character-Culture-Citizenship Guides

Kansas City: T.G. Nichols, 1937. Collection of 32 vintage "citizenship" cards, each featuring a different motivational and inspirational message. Cards numbered on the bottom left corner. Represented in the collection are numbers 1-7, 9-13, 16-17, and 19-36.

Character-Culture-Citizenship guide cards were published in the 1930s and 1940s by the T.G. Nichols Company, a book publisher specializing in textbooks. They were then distributed to elementary schools classrooms in sets of four per month over the course of the school year, with inspirational and educational messages relating to cleanliness, comportment, and manners. Illustrations for the cards are believed to have been contributed by schoolteachers across the country.

All cards 12.5 x 16.5 inches. Very Good plus, with pinholes to the corners, and several with short closed tears to the edges.
