My father, Frank Claycomb (3rd from left), with golfing friends (or work associates?) at the Grand Hotel, Mackinac Island, Michigan. Probably late 1930s.
Mom and Dad registered to vote in Detroit, MI, 1937. The municipal elections there had the biggest turnout in their history that year. My guess is that, as usual, Mom and Dad’s votes cancelled each other. The following year, FDR was elected President for a second term. Can you tell I’ve been sorting more family ephemera lately? Hope to continue and someday finish.
These are two of my father’s i.d. cards. One is his student activity card for Wayne (Nebraska) State Teachers College. It surprises me that it would cost $3.25 for one semester in 1933. Seems pricey.
The other is his Michigan driver’s license for 1936. It’s printed on shiny paper – like photo paper. He was 21 and would be getting married that April.
