No Updates Monday

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

I spent all of Sunday packing up the office, so no Monday updates. I’m behind on comment responses, so bear with me.

Before packing up the jeep ‘toys’ yesterday, I took this photo. It’s not all the toys, but it is most of them. I never set out to collect toys, as I didn’t have the room. Still, somehow, I ended up with these. It’s probably good that I restrained myself; less toys to pack!

Judy the Jeep Girl

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Comics, Features

In an effort to promote Bond drives during World War II, around 1944 Sgt. Jack Kreismer created “Judy the Jeep Girl”. The character, sometimes described as a paper doll, while other times described as a cartoon, has proved a difficult image to track down. To help raise bonds, July ‘traveled’ from California to Salt Lake City, then on to the Washington, D.C.

A photo of Jack and Judy appeared in the June 1, 1945, issue of Minute Man. It’s the best example of Judy the Jeep Girl that I could find:

1945-06-01-minute-man-judy-jeep-girl-kreismer-lores

You can see that Jack (on the left) and Allen Overby (on the right) are holding a booklet. Apparently it is a souvenir booklet that features Judy.

The only newspaper representation I could find for Judy is a less-than-perfect sketch that appeared in the Salt Lake Telegram on June 19, 1944. Judy is left to the man in the box (sauna?).

Later, on January 15, 1945, Elenor Roosevelt commented on Judy’s activities:

Jeopardy and a Jeep Book by Dorothy Rogers

• CATEGORIES: Books, Features, Women & Jeeps

UPDATE: According to the November 24, 1957, issue of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, this book was published in November of 1957 (previously, the date hadn’t been clear).

The December 08, 1957, issue of the Birmingham News included an article on Dr. Rogers’ new book. Apparently, Rogers was a former teacher in Alabama.

Clipping from The Birmingham News - Newspapers.com

=============

Originally Published September 25, 2012:

I am a bit behind on writing about my impressions of various jeep-related books I have read.  So, I’m going to try to catch up with that.  First on the docket is “Jeopardy and a Jeep: Africa Conquered by Two Women Professors”, written by a College Professor named Dorothy Rogers.

I’ll forgo a complete summarization of the book, as I’ve included a summarization published on inside of the dust cover.  However, I will say that Dorothy and Louise Ostberg travelled in a Willys Wagon from France all the way down to the southern tip of Africa, before turning around and heading north again.  For that they deserve plenty of kudos!  For most of the trip their wagon, which they named “Jeepie”, was dependable.  One exception to that was the time their brakes went out going down a hill.  At the bottom of the hill was a one lane bridge upon which some road workers had parked their vehicle.  Having no options and no brakes, they were forced to jump Jeepie off a river bank.  They survived, as did Jeepie.  But, they said they hoped they’d never do that again!

While their book was interesting, I never found it as compelling as, for example, Schreiber’s journey in their Seep from Southern California to the Terra del Fuego in South America (which I’ll describe tomorrow).  That said, if you like a good jeep adventure, or Wagons, or Africa, you’ll likely enjoy this book.

Here is the dust jacket summary:
