Another gem!

Found another gem in our local history files: proof copy of volume 1, number 1 of a literary magazine, "6 x 9". The name was taken from the nine writers of the 6th district (Morristown) of the Federal Writers Project, WPA, who put it together. The editor, Albert Truman Boyd, and associate Carl John Bostelmann were Denville residents. Associate Benjamin Goldenberg and illustrator/printer Lewis W. Biebigheiser lived in Morristown. Biebigheiser (1914-1992(, who cut 12 original linoleum blocks for the issue, would later own a printing business in Chester. We've let his family know what we've found.
