I. Wanted by the Berton Braley Museum
1) Quaker Fortress, 1939
2) I ought to know that, by Berton Braley, compiled with George B. Hill , 1927
3) Shoestring, 1931, story by Berton Braley
We also are interested in purchasing other Berton Braley titles if they have a dust jacket and are at least in Very Good condition and we are looking for various magazines and newspapers containing Braley's works.
I. Wanted by other aficionados
1) I'm looking for a complete copy of:
The Berton Braley poem called "The Ugly Duckling" published, as I recall, in Liberty magazine about 1943.
The poem starts----
"Butt of quips from the fighter ships, and target of snorts & chucklings
Are the hard shelled guys of the PBY's; the crews of the Ugly Ducklings;
Who ride patrol where the wide seas roll; who scout over tropic islets
And who do not fret at the laughs they get from the hot and fancy pilots."
