44 Years Ago This Week.

My Grandfather was a producer and director for CBS news. He passed away in 1965 just a few weeks before I was born. While sorting out some boxes in the garage tonight, I found this interoffice memo from the day he died which ironically was 44 years ago this week.

  1. That's a great tribute! I love that it is written by "Fred Friendly"!! :)

    Also...wanted to tell you that you have inspired my daughter Erin for Halloween. She is going to make her costume! She is going to be Rogue from the Xmen. (I am apparently doing something right as a father.) :) She loves looking at your projects! (So do I).

  2. Thanks Dave,
    So nice to see Dad honored again. So sad you and your siblings never knew him. Sad for him too. Can't believe it''s been so long.

  3. What a wonderful thing to have on such a sad anniversary for you. I and glad you found it--and thank you for sharing it!

  4. And just over 20 years later, Ted would walk into my garage and see photos of your grandfather, with my grandfather, taken by my dad during the filming of Harvest of Shame...file under "small world."
