Washington DC: United States Coast Artillery Association, 1949. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Wraps. 64 pages, plus covers. Illus. Cover wear and erasure. This Journal was founded in 1892 as The Journal of the United States Artillery and was published as such until 1922. From 1922 until 1948 it was published as the Coast Artillery Journal. The U.S. Army Coast Artillery Corps (CAC) was an administrative corps responsible for coastal, harbor, and anti-aircraft defense of the United States between 1901 and 1950. The CAC also operated heavy and railway artillery during World War I. In 1907, Congress split the Field Artillery and Coast Artillery into separate branches, creating a separate Coast Artillery Corps (CAC), and authorizing an increase in the Coast Artillery Corps to 170 companies. National Guard coast artillery units were also formed by the states to attempt to bring the CAC up to strength in wartime. When WWII ended it was decided that few gun defenses were needed, and by 1948 almost all of the seacoast defenses had been scrapped. The Coast Artillery was disestablished in 1950.

This is one of the America in Space: The First Decade series. William Roger Corliss (August 28, 1926 – July 8, 2011) was an American physicist and writer who was known for his interest in collecting data regarding anomalous phenomena. Arthur C. Clarke described him as "Fort's latter-day - and much more scientific - successor." Starting in 1974, Corliss published a number of works in the "Sourcebook Project". Each volume was devoted to a scientific field (archeology, astronomy, geology, et cetera) and featured articles culled almost exclusively from scientific journals. Corliss was inspired by Charles Fort, who earlier also collected reports of unusual phenomena. Many of the articles in Corliss's works were mentioned in Charles Fort's works. Unlike Fort, known for his idiosyncratic writing style, Corliss initially offered little in the way of his own opinions or editorial comments, preferring to let the articles speak for themselves. Corliss wrote many other books and articles, notably including 13 educational books about astronomy, outer space and space travel for NASA and a similar number for the Atomic Energy Commission and the National Science Foundation.
