Huber the tuber

I have just come across a book called _Huber the Tuber: A Story
of Tuberculosis_, by Harry A. Wilmer (NY: National Tuberculosis
Association, 1942). It is an illustrated book (for adults or
children) on the dangers of TB, especially during wartime. The
main villains are Huber the Tuber, his sweetheart Bovy, and Nasty
von Sputum. I am not making this up.
