The Ultimate Crosley Reference List!

When I have time, I'll put together a post about some of the specialized techniques I used to research the Crosley book. I've already written about some of them for The Writer and Online Magazine. In the course of all that research I generated a huge bibliography of sources. If you are a Crosley fan, you may want to get a copy of this list, which I call The Crosley Bibliography. This reference lists the books, magazines, and newspapers I turned up during my research. Each publication cited contains an article, chapter, photo, or other info having to do with Powel Crosley, Jr. The listings are weighted toward Crosley automobiles, but include many articles about Crosley's life as well as some special-interest pieces.

Sources include all sorts of books, and everything from car magazines to The Saturday Evening Post, Time, Business Week, Radio Broadcaster, and more. The Bibliography also lists stories from scores of newspapers around the world. Covering 1911 through 2007, The Crosley Reference contains:

  • 379 books with Crosley information
  • 683 Crosley newspaper stories
  • 496 magazine articles that reference or feature Crosley

That's a total of 1,558 Crosley references. This can help you find those great old articles with photos of Crosley cars and other items you won't see elsewhere. And when you see some article clipped out of a magazine for sale on eBay for too much money, this will identify it and let you find a copy of the whole magazine, for less! This list will help you find original articles and photos available through Web archives, too. Along with the listings, you get a brief, specially written biography of Powel Crosley's automobiles. It contains info not found elsewhere. To get a copy of The Crosley Reference (30+ pages, 4th Edition), send $12.50 to: Michael A. Banks P.O. Box 175 Oxford OH 45056
Or pay with PayPal, sent to the address
