Story Calendar Series

The Franklin Story-Calendars were first published by the Franklin Printing Company in Philadelphia in 1910. There were eight published that year.

As can be seen four were done by Whipple. The Lincoln Story-Calendars were similar to the 1909 edition which was published by The Biddle Press. They cost $1.00. The 1909, 1910 and 1911  Lincoln Calendars had weekly pages. The Washington Story-Calendar also has weekly pages.
