Basil Wolverton's instructional design
Comic artist Basil Wolverton's series, Whiz Comics, ran from 1945 to 1952 and featured a large number of "how to" topics. Clearly humorous, but also great fun from an instructional design perspective. The Dinosaur Gardens website has a fine collection to peruse.
