75 Years Ago This Week - April 26, 1938




75 Years Ago This Week - April 26, 1938



75 Years Ago This Week began March 1, 1938 - my mother and father were preparing to get married later in the month.

Over in The KINNICK Project blog, we had another week of daily entries from Mom's - that is Eileen Kinnick's - diary.
