S.M.U. Press (cont)

The first book published in November by the S.M.U. Press following its establishment was Naturalists of the Frontier by Samuel Wood Geiser (1937).

Although it was a part-time effort for the first five years, the Press turned out some exceptionally fine books and in 1942 reached a cooperative publishing and distributing agreement with the Texas Folklore Society, which now had the Book Club of Texas assets at its disposal. Though the Society was unable to sell Book Club titles at the inventoried prices, it did earn enough money to begin its high-spirited Range Life Series, of which three of the five volumes were designed by Carl Hertzog.
