Gianfranco, I can help you out a bit since my wife's
one of their archivists.  BTW, Louis Glanzman did a
lot of illustrations for them, ala:

Aikman, Lonnelle. 1975. Patriots in Petticoats
[illustrated by Louis Glanzman]. National Geographic
Magazine (October)

and there was an Asterix bit in the 1960s that I don't
have a citation for at the moment.

One from their children's magazine:

can go to the Comics Research Bibliography at but everything
else is mostly a list of Louis Glanzman illustrated
