Happy Father's Day
John L. Day - On the campaign trail, circa 1954, with sons Jack and "Dick" (a name I abandoned in junior high school).
My father, a rather independent Democrat, served in the Kentucky House of Representatives for two terms in the mid-1950s - contemporaneously with Foster Ockerman Sr., Edward T "Ned" Brethitt, Harry King Lowman, & John B Breckinridge.
Speedy Kentuckians can thank him for the “points” on your driver’s license.
My mother’s folks were all Goldwater Republicans.
