        Illustrated Cold War Current Event Calendar, 1981-1989

      Leavenworth, Kansas: Robert Wilderson, 1981-1989. Calendars lightly worn in hand-bound cardboard wrappers, newsletters overall near fine.. Unique illustrated desk calendars. Folios. Collection of eight unique, illustrated desk calendars, US Government issued, folded and bound into cardboard wrappers. The calendars document 1981 though 1987, and 1989. Additionally, the collection contains eleven pieces of Pagan/Wiccan ephemera, mostly newsletters, apparently from the early 1990s. Wilderson was a midlevel (GS-11/12) civilian planner and operations officer/analyst who worked for the Department of Defense at the US Army's Combined Arms Combat Development Activities (CACDA). During the years 1981 though 1984, nearly every day of the calendar is brightly illustrated with marker and colored pencil drawings and text, recording in a single square either current event news, pagan and other holidays, the weather, or events of personal significance. With a particular interest in conflict in Lebanon and the Middle East, relations with the USSR, the development of NASA's Space Shuttle program, Wilderson's calendar appears to track an eminent global apocalypse, presided over by a dangerously impulsive Ronald Reagan. Notations of pagan holidays and the lunar calendar add further color to this bizarre geopolitical document. An able draftsman and cartoonist, Wilderson's private desk calendars are a wildly unique perspective from an individual who was both an insider in the government and an outsider to mainstream American society. Apparently Wilderson retired after 1989, just before CACDA was downsized following the end of the Cold War. The collection of Wiccian newsletters give a glimpse into a separate life in Oregon's "Southern Williamette Pagan Network" and the "Lane County Pagan Network". The newsletters, designed on what appears to be an early Apple Macintosh, themselves document the flowering of micro-community desktop publishing enabled by the graphic interface computers that presaged the coming of the World Wide Web.
