1959 Resources: Baseball, Science and the ever popular Personal Finance!

Posted by on April 19, 2009


It’s easy to write a blog post about a certain year when we only look at political and big name events.  However, history is about all things, not just the ones easily remembered…

With this in mind, I’ve been researching the Mercury astronauts as well as a ton of other great topics….so many in fact, that it’s hard to decide.

One of my primary resources for this has been Google Books.  With their digitization of many resources, it is challenging to find news and views from the whole year! 

So, I thought to myself…why not share them with you?  So here are some primary resources from our profile year of 1959 for you to read and enjoy!

Baseball Digest!




Popular Science



Billboard Magazine






There are more resources on Google Books for your to enjoy as well!  It’s worth taking a trip there for more information.  Just remember to hit the advanced search and then limit your years of publication! 

Have fun, while I sort my stack of information!

Have a great day!
