1957 report on banana production

I am a son of a UFCo employee. I have been going through some papers and found a couple of things that may interest someone. I have a report that was published in 1957 titled "Something about Bananas". Or "The Banana and its Production, Transporation and Sale". It is about 30 pages long and done in the form of a scientific paper. The primry souce quoted is a person by the name of Von Loesecke. Does this interest anyone?
Also, I am in possession of an early 1950's Great White Fleet company flag. Red, Blue and with the White diamond in it, just like on the stack of the fleet's ships. I would like to find a way to know how much such an item would be worth. Any Ideas??
