I just received some books from a relative of mine, with no knowledge of who or where they were from. But as I have done a little research, I figured out they are from Dave Ballard's personal collection. I have a copy of "Is Patriotism Old Fashioned?" with his on-air notes in the book. He crossed out certain parts of the speech etc. Is there any value with regards to his personal copies of books? Or is it just fun Americana at this point? Hope you're well,
