"Wrong target?"[edit]

I'm concerned about extensive deletions of supplementary content which I added to this article. Victor Green's life included his becoming an entrepreneur: seeing opportunities with his guide book and creating a travel bureau business, in addition to hiring agents to research his guide, marketing and selling it. The article is about him, not just the take which the NY Times article took on The Green Book; the full scale of his creativity and building relationships with national associations and businesses deserves to be covered here.Parkwells (talk) 19:49, 25 August 2010 (UTC)

PDF version of Green Book[edit]

1949 edition has been scanned and posted as a 91 Mb PDF on this website of the University of Michigan, PDF here. Fascinating document, though the quote from the introduction "There will be a day sometime in the near future when this guide will not have to be published. That is when we as a race will have equal rights and privileges in the United States." seems to be removed by this edition. (which is interesting in itself).
