Family Scrapbook Series

For as long as I can remember I have been surrounded by my grandfather's legacy. Edgar Rice Burroughs was a man with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and adventure, and his interests seemed to be split equally among the realms of past, present and future. He seemed to want to embrace and horde memories of his own unique world for posterity, and as a result he left behind an amazingly eclectic and gargantuan horde of books, photos, art, letters, magazines, and memorabilia. 

This family trait has been passed down through the generations -- to my dad, John Coleman Burroughs, to my uncle Hulbert, to aunt Joan Pierce. . . and to myself.I like nothing better than to immerse myself in the wonderful family archive I've inherited and to experience vicariously the wonderful life's roller coaster they rode through decades past. Over the years I have taken great joy in sharing these family "treasures" on our various Websites. Here is another assortment of items ranging from the 1920s to present day.

Dr. W. R. Carr
    c/o Carr & White,
        #816 South San Pedro St.,
            Los Angeles, Calif.

Dear Dr. Carr:

Our stallion, Rex, has acquired a habit of occasionally abusing himself.

I purchased some rings, but am not certain of the wisdom of using them.

What is your idea about this, and if you think the ring should be used, about how tight should it be put on?

Yours very truly,
E R Burroughs (sig)

Edgar Rice Burroughs
Rings are commonly used. Just put on loose just so they will stay on and when erection takes place it pinches them so they will not abuse themselves.

Wear it for a week or so then remove for a week & repeat again a week. If he continues to do so when off keep it on continually. If they are not to tight will do no harm.

Yours Carr


Ed and Brigadier Rex
