Nv.19,1951 ,Mw/,RING 2,574,899 11 MEMORANDUM CALENDAR Filed June 19, 1945 i l ,Q

Patented Nov. 13, v 1951 *oFFicE v MEMoRANDUM CALENDAR Y Lillian H. Waring, Brooklyn, N. Y. Application June 19, iaifsrial No.'s0o,2s1 e' (o1. fio-11o) 1 Claim.

This invention relates to improvements in memorandum calendars designed particularly for the notation of birthdays or the like, but it obviously may be used wherever a particular item is to be remembered on a specific date.

One of the objects of the invention is to provide a calendar of this character in which each calendar sheet may be associated with a cover sheet apertured to expose the dates of the month, and constructed to permit the insertion of a small photograph or the like to cover or block 01T any date in a month.

Another object is to provide a calendar of this character in which a single cover sheet may be associated with a series of ordinary calendar sheets so that the cover sheet will cooperate with any month sheet of the calendar to permit any date on a month to be obstructed by an inserted photograph or the like.

A still further object is to supply a memorandum calendar specifically designed for the reception of small photographs so that if a persons birthday falls on a particular date, his or her photograph may be inserted into the calendar so as to obstruct that date and remind the owner of the calendar of the birthday of that person.

With the foregoing objects outlined and with other objects in View which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention consists in the novel features hereinafter described in detail, illustrated in the accompanying drawing and more particularly pointed out in the appended claim.

In the drawing:

Fig. 1 is a front elevation of a calendar in accordance with the invention with one of the combined month and cover sheets in raised position.

Fig. 2 is a side elevation of the same.

Fig. 3 is an enlarged vertical sectional view of a detail taken on the line 3-3 of Fig. 1 through a single one of the combined sheets.

Fig. 4 is a front elevation partly broken away and illustrating a modification in which a single cover sheet cooperates with the twelve ordinary sheets of the calendar.

Fig. 5 is a vertical sectional View on the line 5--5 of Fig. 4.

Fig. 6 is an enlarged vertical sectional view of a detail taken on the line 6-6 of Fig. 4.

Referring rst to the calendar shown in Fig. 1, it will be noted that it consists of twelve composite sheets 6 corresponding to the twelve months in a year, and connected together by any suitable means, such as rings 1 which extend sheets. Each composite sheet comprises a back calendar sheet 9 provided on its face with indicia I0, indicating the year; I I, indicating the month; I 2, indicating days of the week and I3, indicating the days of the month. Obviously, such indicia may be arranged in various ways in accordance with conventional calendars, but in accordance with the present invention, the calendar sheet is combined with a cover sheet I4 having holes I5, I6, I'I and I8 therein to expose respectively, the year, month, week and day indications on the calendar sheet. The two sheets are connected together by any suitable means marked I9 and such means is preferably arranged in parallel lines extending horizontally between the horizontal rows of apertures I8 so that unconnected parts are provided between the lines of connecting means to provide guideways 20 for the insertion of photographs 2l from an edge of one of the composite sheets.

With such a device, it will be understood that photographs may be introduced into the calendar to obstruct dates corresponding with birthdays of the individuals depicted in the phtographs so as to remind the possessor of the calendar of the birthday of those persons.

In the modication shown in Figs. 4 to 6, inclusive, the calendar is made up of a series of ordinary date or calendar sheets 22 combined with a cover sheet 23 that may be employed with any of the calendar sheets. As shown, the calendar sheet has the usual year, month, week and day indicia, marked respectively 24, 25, 26 and 21, and the cover sheet in this example consists of a pair of apertured sheets 28 and 29 connected together along horizontal lines 30 so as to leave slideways 3I between the sheets for the insertion of photographs 32.

From the foregoing, it is believed the construction of the calendar'and the use of the same may be readily understood, and it is apparent that changes may be made in the details without departing from the spirit of the invention, as expressed in the following claim.

What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

A memorandum calendar, comprising a first sheet bearing parallel rows of indicia indicating the consecutive days of a month, a cover sheet of substantially the same size as the iirst sheet arranged in front thereof and having rows of apertures registering with and exposing the indicia on the rst sheet, means connecting the sheets together to prevent either one from slidthrough holes 8 near the upper edges of the 55 ing relatively to the other, and guideways between the sheets, extending along the rows of apertures and to adjacent edge portions of the two sheets to sldably receive a photograph which may be introduced into any of the guideways from said edge portions of the sheets and shifted along the guideway to block any of the apertures in the cover sheet and thus obstruct a date on the rst sheet.
