History of the Thrift Movement in America
S. W. Straus, Rollin KirbyISBN: 0766160475;
1920. Lippincott's Thrift Text Series. This is an inspirational volume on thrift and the many ways in which it can be applied in its broadest senses to the use of money, health, living, time and energy; thrift in the home, in business and society and in national and individual development. So clearly did the author bring before the members of the National Education Association and other associations, his enlarged point of view, and so thoroughly did he persuade members of the Committee on Thrift Education of the necessity for introduction into the schools of proper instruction in thrift, that the efforts of the previous few years resulted in an awakening such as was created by no similar movement in a century. Illustrated.
