    That Damned Democrat: John Norton, an Australian Populist, 1858-1916 by Cannon, Michael (editor)

    Melbourne University Press, Carlton South Vic, Austria, 1980. First Edition. Hardcover. Good/Very Good. 500 g; VIII, 184 pages, last six pages blank, indexed, chapter notes, numerous articles reproduced along with line drawing illustrations. Coloured illustrated dust jacket. Slight grubby mark on the half title page, otherwise in very good order. This impartial biography of a passionate man and his works and manages to separate fact from the fantasies which Norton enjoyed weaving around his origins, motives and activities. The result is a succinct, compelling story of an extraordinary character he used radical journalism and politics to achieve personal goals, doing much good and some harm along the way. A "Norton anthology" gives entertaining examples of the type of journalism which made Norton idolized by large sections of the working class but hated and feared by most conventional people. This is not the whole voice of radicalism in Australia's earlier years. But it is an important, neglected and greatly misunderstood part of a history. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

    TYPED LETTER SIGNED BY THE PUBLISHER OF THE NEW YORK JOURNAL-AMERICAN SEYMOUR BERKSON. by Berkson, Seymour. (1905-1959). Publisher of the New York Journal-American

    New York: October 11, 1957.. 1957.. Very good. - 35 words typed on a cream-colored, 10-1/2 inch high by 7-1/4 inch wide sheet of New York Journal and American letterhead with "Office of the Publisher" printed below the address. Signed "Seymour Berkson". There is a light crease to the upper left margin of the letterhead with some very light creasing to the bottom edge. Folded twice for mailing. Very good. <p>Berkson accepts an invitation from Edward Hirtenstein of the Insurist Corporation of America to attend "the cocktail party in honor of my good friend, Seymour Halpern at the 21 Club on Tuesday, October 22."<p>Seymour Berkson [1905-1959] was born and educated in Chicago, From his schooldays, he was interested in newspaper work. He advanced through the ranks from reporter to vice president and general manager of the International News Service before being named publisher of the New York Journal-American. He was active in civic affairs and in 1958 served as chairman of the newspaper committee for Brotherhood week, the national observance sponsored by the National Conference of Christians and Jews.<p>The Queens, New York Republican Congressman Seymour Halpern (1913-1997) started his political career as a campaign aide to New York's powerful mayor Fiorella La Guardia and first served in New York's State Senate for 14 years before seeking a seat in the U.S. Congress. In Albany Halpern sponsored 279 bills that became law, including measures on schools, housing, civil rights, nutrition and mental health. A Liberal, he was something of an anomaly as the lone Republican representative from New York City, and generally garnered support from Labor Unions and endorsement from the Liberal Party. Yet he never even considered switching parties as he considered membership in the Republican Party a family tradition and commitment. While he found ample time for his private pursuits, including painting and collecting autographs, he took his legislative duties very seriously. Of these, he was proudest of his co-sponsorship of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and of the original 1965 Medicare legislation.
