Smithsonian and Mario Pei's important contribution to Esperanto.
If I understand well, a division of the Smithsonian National Museum, Folkways, offers the important book by Mario Pei, Wanted One World Language, as an audio-book. I rarely buy material on-line, but this may be an exception. Between the years 1950-1970, Mario Pei's positive view on Esperanto, was the first source of information, for most American Esperanto speakers. http://www.folkways.si.edu/TrackDetails.aspx?itemid=23529 Se mi bone komprenis la plej grava muzeo de usono enretigis la plej gravan libron pri Esperanto eble de la jaroj 1950-1970.
