Hi Howard.

If I can plug my site, check out my feature article of the week. It’s actually several articles, but the most poignant is AP story from 1938 written by Don Pryor. Louis was about three years from passing away at the time. His son had died and he had suffered a stroke. He was an all but forgotten hero.
