Teaching Cards

n.p. Sup. Educ. Assn. (1930). Illustrated by M. E. Webb. Stiff cards 6½ by 9½ inches, printed in color on the obverse and in black on the reverse.


The cards date from about 1930 and were distributed by the New York Schools system as a teaching aid for various subjects. The obverse tells a story, and the reverse gives explanations for the teacher and suggestions on activates for the classroom related to the story.
This collection contains 127 cards on various subjects, as well as two stamped mimeograph supplements. They cover a variety of subjects from children's stories, geography, civics, textiles, transportation and more. 115 cards are in very good to fine condition. 13 cards and one mimeographed supplement are damaged in that they have a old deteriorated rubber band stuck to one side.


Undated,but we have seen a card in the series relating to the 1929 voyage of the Graf Zeppelin, which was retired in the 1930's.


Most of the illustration are signed by Margaret Ely Webb, a painter, illustrator, art teacher and writer. Aside from her textbooks, she provided illustrations for this teaching card series as well as several children's books published in the early part of the 20th century.
