......Mathew Brady became interested in writing while working as a radio
operator abord an aircraft carrier during World War II. He and a mate
began to add notes on shipboard life to the Armed Forces News that was
distributed daily throughout the ship.
     Shipyard workers at Swan Island,who built the carrier,had donated
the complete Modern Library,and this served as inspiration.......

Three questions?
1. Were these books perhaps buckrum bindings?
2. Had this been done more then once by the shipyard workers?
3. Did Random House help supply a ships library?
