Character-Culture-Citizenship Guides Number 11

Character-Culture-Citizenship Guides 11 - "Peace on earth, good will to men."
The stepping stones from boyhood to manhood read: play, respect of parents, ambition, thoroughness, determination, friendship, reverence and self respect.

I'm guessing here, but the man does bear a resemblance to FDR, who was President when the Character-Culture-Citizenship Guides were printed, so perhaps this is also the road to the presidency.


  1. I don't think I remember ever seeing "thoroughness" listed as a trait needed for a successful life, but now that I think about it, it probably is.

    I'm also not sure I see the connection between the title and the stepping stones, but that's one of the things I find interesting about this series.

  2. I was trying to figure out that connection as well, but I don't think there is one - at least not an obvious one. Since these were a classroom series, I'm assuming there was a lesson plan that went with them, and maybe the connection is made there. But finding that lesson plan now would be all but impossible.
