For kids serials somewhat like HP, I read the Chip Hilton sports series by Clair Bee (late 40s to 60s) and Tom Swift. My sister read Nancy Drew books. None were nearly as immensely popular as HP.

Interesting list. It seems that the overall literary sophistication of the American reader has taken a dive over the past 45 years.
