    Family Circle Magazine, February, 1949 issue, featuring an article on comic books and how they affect children. This article appeared five years before Seduction of the Innocent and unlike the Wertham book, it is pro-comic book reading. The article was written by Dr. Harvey Zorbaugh, professor of education and director of the Clinic for the Social Adjustment of the Gifted, New York University, and by Mildred Gilman, author and mother. The article discusses Dr. Fredrick J. Wertham's views and includes photos of children reading Rusty Comics, Superman, Iron Vic and Cookie. Cover price $0.05.
