Black Star Line Stock Certificates; Mickey Mouse's Origin; Pro-Nazi Newspaper in Texas
Questions concern black leader Marcus Garvey, Mickey Mouse and a WWII POW camp in Texas. A North Carolina woman found two stock certificates for Garvey's Black Star Line steamship company that her great-grandfather purchased in 1919. A San Francisco antiques dealer owns a toy mouse named "Micky" with a patent date of 1926 on it (two years before Walt Disney invented Mickey). And a Texas woman has heard stories that the government expropriated her family's land in 1942 for a camp for German POWs.
