Today, DeMoulin Bros. & Co. is one of the largest suppliers of costumes for marching bands in the US. But in 1930, the company produced an amazing array of props and devices created specifically to be used in minor 'hazing' of candidates by various fraternal organisations. The great 1930 DeMoulin Bros. catalog of 1930, reprinted here, is truly a holy grail for the prankster, the armchair sadist and anyone interested in some of the zanier historic arcana lurking behind America's neighbourhood odd-fellows lodges.
