"1038 - Before color television" You mean there was life on earth before color TV?Well, there was - I can evendimly remeember B/W TV....
When did REI print their first catalog? I can remember grabbing mine when it came and searching for goodies. I think in the 60s the catalogs came out at six month intervals, more or less.
1938 was about to initiate some interesting times. For how long wasREI able to order direct from Austria and how did the Co-op survive the war years?
I joined in 1963-64 or thereabouts and the fee had doubled to two bucks!!!
one or more gifts or other benefits from the co-op.
