Ski (Illustrated) Magazine, 1936-40s

Many of these articles were photocopied from the Mel Borgersen collection, courtesy of his son Rolf Borgersen. I also obtained four complete issues (Dec-Jan 1936-37, Feb-Mar 1937, Dec-Jan 1937-38, Feb-Mar 1938) from the O.P. Dickert family. A few articles were obtained from other sources, particularly the New England Ski Museum.

Every issue of Ski Illustrated that I've reviewed is listed here. If nothing noteworthy is listed for a given issue, I probably don't have any photocopies from it. If the Notes column says "reference," then the contents may be useful for future reference, but I haven't made detailed notes on them for now. The ID column below has links to review notes.

Review priority: yellow, high; white, neutral; green, see pre-pub notes; blue, complete.
