January 12, 1952
Yep, that’s my paternal grandfather, Sig Levy. As I continue to go through his scrapbooks, I’m reminded that he was a busy guy. It seems like he was involved in just about everything – now I know where my dad got it!
Not just involved in everything, but he saved EVERYTHING! Sometimes I can figure out why but others, not so much.
Case in point is this article.
I can understand why he saved it since he was one of those who became ill, but WHY did the newspaper feel compelled to put that news in the newspaper?
Sig was the Publicity Chairman for this patriotic event.
And then the newspaper used a similar sketching for a different article showing he was the co-chairman of the Parade Committee.
An interesting article in the Los Angeles Herald Express. Nice to know Sig was helping to get our veterans back to work.
He seemed to have a real interest in nursing programs, although I’m not sure why, as there were several articles about that. I thought this photo was interesting.
I started looking for more information about the new wing so that I could compare it to today and had to stop – must. not. go. down. another. rabbit. hole.
