HUNTERS WITH DOGS 1940S: MIDWEST

 

My wife's dad on right enjoyed outdoor life. He and family spent much time together fishing; his hunting trips were with his associates at ATT and often involved trips into Canadian wilderness of the 20s through the 50s. He passed away in the 70s after many years with ATT, beginning as a linesmen in central Missouri. During the 50s and 60s his work involved coordinating television broadcasts via communication lines. The dogs belonged to my wife's dad. He was a gentleman from another era; he never raised his voice in anger.

 

He believed that the less the government got involved in the lives of the individual the happier both the government and the individual would be. I will always remember that statement when I first heard him mention his political affiliations. It is a classic philosophy and one that is only shared by just a little over half of the nation at the present time, however as time goes by it is probably a certainty that more and more citizens will adopt his philosophy as they see more and more of big brother.
