Other holdings: 1860 to Present

The Hess contains a small collection of comic books, including a number of series dating from the collector's "golden age" (1938-1955). The collection also includes more than 500 Big Little Books which were acquired in the 1960s and a complete set of American Boy (1900-1941) donated by Charles Messecar. We are expanding our holdings in pulps, comics, and science fiction.
