Great Northern Bookmark

This bookmark is undated, but the blue-and-red color scheme looks contemporaneous with the 1940 Glacier Park brochure I posted a few days ago. The back of the bookmark lists several “splendid books on the historic Northwest,” and the newest was first published in 1933, so it can’t date before that year.

The back also lists major national organizations, such as the American Library Association and American Bar Association, that were planning to hold national conventions in San Francisco, Long Beach, or Seattle in the coming year. According to the American Library Association, that group held one of its annual conferences in San Francisco in June of 1939, so this bookmark must be from 1939.
