Claas's collection humbles me, but I did find a few odds-and-ends in the garage. Here they are.
This is a John Bull postcard that is a view of the the bottom of the U-Deutschland showing two of the six Kingston valves and the bilge rests to prevent rolling when resting on the bottom.
These are postcards published in the USA by the Reichsbund magazine, Vaterland. The membership Reichsbund pin is shown also.
I think everyone has this postcard , published in Germany in 1916.
This is truly impressive in that it represents the media coverage of the U-Deutschland's first visit to the US. I wish I could see this book "in the flesh," but sadly it was a victim of WWII. It was donated to the Royal Library in Berlin by the American chapters of the Deutschebund and Reichsbund. I ran across an interesting statistic yesterday, which was that in 1895, Chicago was "the third largest German city in the world." Obviously the Bund organizations were rather large then.
When König died in 1933 there was a memorial service for him in Baltimore. This is the program.
