Finding Aid

Prepared by Rhonda Rinehart, April 5, 2004; Last Updated: January 2020


Inclusive Dates: 1943-1947
Extent: 5 cubic feet (11 archival shoeboxes)
Physical Location: 11th floor


Historical Note: In 1943, the Council on Books in Wartime, comprised of publishers, librarians, and booksellers, established the Armed Services Editions, Incorporated. The council, which believed the ideas that come from reading were perhaps the best way to fight the war, joined in cooperation with the United States Army and Navy, several printing firms and large publishing houses including Penguin Books; Doubleday; Crowell-Collier; Harcourt, Brace & Co.; MacMillan; Farrar and Rinehart; and Charles Scribner's Sons to get books to American soldiers during World War II. This joint effort allowed for the distribution of nearly 123 million copies of the trademark pocket-sized paperback books in 1,322 titles throughout this five-year period. In most cases, these distributed books were copies of the complete original works, but some were condensed through editing to conform to both weight constraints and content acceptability. Both fiction and non-fiction were represented, and the genres included adventure, mystery, humor, poetry, biographies, historical novels, science/mathematics, farm and rural life, and pioneer and western stories. Distribution decisions were largely based on selections made by an appointed advisory committee, and tended to be current and forthcoming titles submitted by publishers.* However, many noted authors from earlier time periods were included as well, such as Ernest Hemingway, O. Henry, Walt Whitman, Mary Shelley, and Rudyard Kipling.

*Books in Action: The Armed Services Editions, edited by John Y. Cole.


Scope and Content: The collection comprises 349 separate books including six hard copy editions. Some noted authors appearing here include William Wordsworth, Jack London, Herman Melville, Carl Sandburg, Thomas Mann, Zane Grey, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Ellery Queen, James Thurber, and Mary and Percy Shelley. Also contained in the collection is E. B. White's One Man's Meat, which was temporarily banned by the selection committee in 1944. Compilations from The New Yorker and Yank, a popular Army weekly magazine during World War II, are incorporated as well. All editions in this collection were published by Editions for the Armed Services, Inc. unless otherwise noted. Arrangement is alphabetical by author, or by title if no author is given.


Acquisition Information: This collection was acquired by the department of Special Collections and Archives around the year 1967.

Related Materials: In addition to this collection, Special Collections and Archives also holds separately acquired Armed Services Editions that have been cataloged in our book collection. You may view records for these publications in the KentLINK catalog.

Arrangement: This collection is organized alphabetically by author name, or title, if no author is identified.
