Was "recycling" of paper being done in the 1940's, or earlier ?

I remember elementary school teachers in the mid 1970's noting how scarce paper was during WWII. There were a lot of other war materials recycled during the 1940's. People seem to forget that a lot a stuff that can normally be found today was tightly rationed during the war years. Food in general, gasoline, and rubber were really scarce during those years. The U.S. economy was converted into producing military supplies from early 1942 all the way into 1945. There was very little production available for civilian use.

I added a link to the 1966-67 catalog in the first post. Thanks to Earl Cagle (Earl) for sending the scan.

Citizens of the United States today would not tolerate the kind of rationing that went on during WWII. The politicians that involve us in wars would be expected to do so with little if any impact to non military citizens. Wars generally have an overall positive impact to the Ultra Wealthy and most citizens are very tired of that.
It just won't ever be tolerated again.

Cool

It would not have dawned on me in a million years that people would collect X-Acto catalogs.... but then I look at some of the informational resources I collect and I can understand why....

Primarily to better date the various Xacto tools and sets that come up for auction. With an 80+ year production history, I found it is not always easy to reasonably pinpoint the age of a given Xacto knife or knife set. And my collection focus is the very early 1970s, which appears to be the source of several changes in tool sets and such, but so far I have only one catalog from the 70s and that actually is in the late 70s, a 1978 catalog. Also, Xacto went through a few ownership changes during the 70s, being bought out by CBS around 1971 and then by Hunt Manufacturing sometime in the late 70s or early 80s.

Still have many holes in the catalog collection but we are making fair headway since starting on this particular trek sometime in the summer of 2020.
