No’th Ca’lina With Berton Braley

As I was shelving broadsides the other day, I noticed the item above. Something about it sounded very familiar. After running it by a coworker, we both realized that another coworker had blogged about it in the past: Flivvering.

Just who was Berton Braley? Well, I have to admit that I didn’t know. The only entry in our biographical clippings was the postcard above. The only entries in the NC Collection’s catalog were for different editions of the same poem. What to do next? Well, I hate to admit it, but I turned to Wikipedia…and it didn’t fail me.
