April 24, 1954 – From the Milwaukee Journal:
What are SORDID comic books doing to our children?
“The Senate judiciary subcommittee on juvenile delinquency is currently holding hearings in New York on the effect of comic books upon child behavior. Among those who have testified before the subcommittee is Dr. Frederic Wertham, senior psychiatrist of hospitals and author of a new book, “The Seduction of the Innocent” published this week by Rinehart.”
Click on the newspaper clipping image to read “a chat with Dr. Wertham” from the very week his infamous book was released. Google is scanning tons of old newspapers, so you can read it right from the pages of the old newspaper scans. Fun to search thru the archives too!
