"Mission des Pères Blancs / SOUDAN FRANÇAIS -- Leçon de Catéchisme" for a large group, circa-1920 carte postal with divided green back, fairly fresh, just a hint of a bend at one corner, otherwise good edges. Rare: when we searched the Internet no one else offered or exhibited this postcard, and there were only 3 other postcards total for these missionaries. The White Fathers got their name from the white cassock or gandoura that they wore (see the man teaching at the left) at the time, not from the color of their skin. The location is probably Ségou which is in present-day Mali. Sold but front side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan (publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. frc

Sepia-tone real-photo postcard showing 2 college-age men with their musical instruments, mailed Feb 4 1914 at Lexington Nebraska. Exceptionally interesting message: "Am going uptown to-night to hear a speech against the Catholics. Are having quite a time here over religion now." According to the Clipper-Citizen weekly of Feb 6 1914, the speaker was William Lloyd Clark. He spoke to a standing-room-only crowd on February 2 & 3 (the card was mailed next day) at Smith's opera house. His pre-announced topic was an innocuous sounding 'Public Schools, Free Speech and Press'. But the local Catholics knew of the career anti-Catholic pamphleteer & speaker by reputation & promptly circulated a petition for signatures asking their city council to suppress the meeting. Some signed it, some did not & were threatened with a boycott of their businesses. The meeting was peaceful, and so too was the aftermath. William Lloyd Clark continued travelling extensively well into the mid-1920's. He later identified himself with the Independent Klan of America, which some label a splinter group of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK). In any event, when the KKK began its resurgence -- some say 1914, some 1915 -- they found his many anti-Catholic pamphlets useful & circulated them widely at their meetings. Clark also published ads in the KKK Dawn asking for subscriptions. An interesting piece of social history. $30.00 n(k)src
