In Muscatine on Monday, October 6, 1952, I started working after school and weekends at Cohn’s news agency for 50¢ per hour. I stocked paperback books and drove early morning truck delivery of Sunday paper bundles around town. Cohn’s ad in our 1952 yearbook:
Hello - I am Stanley Gardner, the only grandson of Jettie Short (above, feeding her farm chickens in 1946) and Williams Gardner. They also had six grand-daughters. This blog is a series of date-related excerpts from Dad's diaries, with selected photos or other visual aids.
