To the Editor:

As a member of Wisconsin Women Library Workers, I was delighted to discover the postcard featuring Minnie Earl Sears reproduced in Billy R, Wilkinson’s article, “Academic Library Postcards” (C&RL News, November 1988, p. 649, fig. 4).

Please alert readers of C&RL News that the “Muriel Fuller Memorial Postcard Series,” unlike some of the other postcards pictured, is still available for purchase from the source. The packet of five postcards honoring women librarians may be ordered from Wisconsin Women Library Workers, PO Box 1425, Madison, WI53701. The cost per set is $1.75 plus .25 for postage.—Susan E. Searing, Wisconsin Women Library Workers, Madison, Wisconsin.

To the Editor:

I enjoyed “Academic Library Postcards” by Billy R. Wilkinson in the November 1988 C&RL News. In partial answer to Wilkinson’s question about “hold-to-light” cards; I have never seen such an item for an academic library, but I do have a nice copy of the Library of Congress, die-cut, ca. 1905 (with undivided back). It was published by Samuel Cupples Envelope Co., St. Louis, Mo., “Sole World’s Fair Stationers,” but was probably produced in Germany. I’d be glad to hear from others who share this interest.—Siegfried Feller, Chief Bibliographer and Associate Director for Collection Development, University of Massachusetts, Amherst. ■ ■
