Keeping up with past and present happenings in a remarkable small town.
A bunch of old, white men. Oh well, it was 1947, after all, but still if I could, I'd ask these community stalwarts what exactly they put in place to ensure the town that made them all rich would endure and thrive? Not much evidence of that simple foresight....or even concern.
People can make or break their community...not rules, politicians, etc. If people want their community to thrive, it is up to them.
These are attorneys, not legislators or councilmen. They wrote wills, tried cases, etc.
It was different back then,the gap between rich and poor was much narrower. My Dad worked at Armco and in his best year at that time probably made 5-6 grand a year. These guys and Doctors hauled in a bit more than double that. Maybe a bit more but not a lot. Now days they would rake in 8-10 times what the average worker makes.
Milo Williams was my uncle and he was wealthy, but, from his jewelry store. anyone can make snide remarks when they don't have the nerve to leave their name.
You sure these are attorneys and not just businessmen? Didn't realize that T.W. Phillips and V. Wise were attorneys.
