Humphrey for Mayor!


I love finding this stuff.

This scrap was underneath some vinyl flooring that I have been scraping from the front porch.

Old newspaper is often found in attics and walls of old homes where someone once used it as insulation, but I'm not really sure what it was doing under the vinyl.

Anyway, this page is from 1945.

Wow, that's pretty cool. Didn't he fly in WWII? Did he run so soon after coming home or do I have my facts wrong?

Check out the WLOL radio note- Hah! I used to listen to that station when I was young.
I liked finding that stuff in my old house too.

Thephoe: I don't think he flew in WWII, but I'm not 100% sure on that. I do know that the 1945 mayoral race (which he won) was his second bid for the office and his first time being elected to a public position.

HNsprout: yeah, those call letters rang a bell for me too!

BC: It is indeed weird, but not as weird as the skivvies I found plastered into the wall of the study! (no lie)
