Spanish Speaking Americans in the War
Office of the Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs, [Washington, D.C. 1943 - Olson's first book, a tribute to the Spanish-speaking Americans involved in the war effort, both overseas and on the home front. The 24 page pamphlet was written in collaboration with Ben Shahn, roughly a year after Olson began working for him at the Foreign Language Division of the Office of War Information (OWI). The text borders on being inspirational, coupled with powerful images of soldiers, farmers, families, machinists, and doctors whose lives had been caught up in the war. While none of the images are credited, several would likely have been taken and contributed by Shahn, who had worked as a staff photographer for the Farm Security Administration before taking over as Creative Director for OWI in 1940. A stopper for collectors of Olson's work, and quite rare; this is the only copy we have handled, and we are aware of only one other example in the trade in the past decade. Quarto (28cm); illustrated stapled wrappers; [24pp]; chiefly illus. Some marginalia (in pencil) on front wrapper, some of which is partially erased; light edgewear, a few tiny nicks, and a shallow 3" chip to left edge of rear wrapper; a Very Good, sound copy. [Attributes: First Edition]
