Historical Note

The Treasure Chest of Fun & Fact was an American Catholic comic book that began publication by George Pflaum of Dayton, Ohio, with a cover date of March 12, 1946. It was a response to the undesirable comic books of that time with the intent to use the comics format to teach tenets of both Catholic faith and American patriotism. It was generally not available for sale at newsstands but rather via distribution through the Catholic parochial school system.

Publisher George Pflaum was a well known Catholic publisher. As head of the company founded by his father in 1885, he was in charge of such titles as The Young Catholic Messenger, The Junior Catholic Messenger, and Our Little Messenger, each addressed to different age groups in the Catholic school system. Pflaum, who died in 1963, was active in the Catholic Press Association and was a founder of the Catholic Civics Clubs of America, a joint project with the Commission on American Citizenship of The Catholic University of America (CUA) in Washington, DC.

The Treasure Chest had a run of 508 issues between 1946 and 1972, and made great use of non-fiction subjects. Most of the stories promoted themes of faith, family, and patriotism and related to sports, school, and Saints. Contributors included Frank Borth, Bob Powell, and Reed Crandall. In the 1960s the comic began to fade and by the time it ceased publication with Volume 27, No. 8, July (Fall) 1972, it was being published by T.S. Denison and Company in Minnesota. Later Pflaum changed its name to Pflaum Standard and T.S. Denison became part of Instructional Fair to form Instructional Fair/T.S. Denison.

Scope and Content Note

Series one, the printed collection, has the majority of the 508 issues of the Treasure Chest comics which were published in 27 volumes from 1946 until 1972. As this comic was only circulated through Catholic school subscriptions, the issues ran twice a month through the school year and once a month at most in the summer months. While the bulk of the volumes include 20 issues with between 32 and 36 pages each, the waning years of Treasure Chest’s publication only included fewer and fewer issues with larger numbers of pages. Moreover, from 1959-1965, a supplementary teacher’s edition that included lesson plans and context for the entire volume were included with the subscriptions.

Because of the connection to the Commission on American Citizenship, a main topic discussed throughout the run of comics is the balance of being good Catholics and good citizens. These comics helped fight the increasingly ghettoized Catholic communities that were stereotyped as being un-American because of their faith. Other prominent subjects included the history of Catholicism, the Sacraments and liturgical elements, sports histories, dating and etiquette advice, and just plain entertainment. The audience for each strip in an issue would vary so that the comics could often be used from the elementary grades through the secondary levels.

Series two consists of a May 10, 2006 interview with Treasure Chest of Fun & Fact illustrator and writer Frank Borth. The audio and transcript are both included in this series. The interview documents Mr. Borth’s association with Pflaum Publishing, his career in the US Army, and how he got his start in comic writing and illustration.

Custodial History

Eight bound volumes (5-12) of the comic book, Treasure Chest of Fun & Fact, 1949-1957, were deposited in the Archives by W. Wingate Snell upon his retirement in November of 1970 after sixteen years working for Catholic University's Commission on American Citizenship. Seventeen bound volumes (1-3, 5-12, 15-20), some of them duplicates, were transferred to the Archives by Chiyono Sata of the Cataloging Department, CUA's Mullen Library, in June of 2003. Scores of additional loose copies for the years 1950 to 1972 received in May 2006 from contributor Frank Borth. The Commission was a contributor to the Treasure Chest which was published by George Pflaum of Ohio from inception in 1946 until T.S. Dennison took over and published the last year, 1971-1972. The following years are public domain: 1946-1963, inclusive, and 1972. Since it was never published by nor part of CUA's Commission on American Citizenship, the decision was taken to separate it as a manuscript collection and to make it available as a digital collection.
