“50 Years ago – Chief Curtis Brostron”

It is just  too hard to believe…  some of the old news items – – that one will find – – when they take the time to look through old boxes of memories.

This “NEWS” of  the day – – January of 1967 – –  my husband,  Lee passed away  – – and in this  clipping   – – we see the “Chief of Police  Curtis Brostron”  crown  Miss Carol-Lynn Howard … the Lily Day Queen.

This ceremony took place  at City Hall – – to mark the opening  of the 1967  Easter Seal campaign  of the St. Louis Society …  for  Crippled Children.

The above news story  was just above the story in the ‘newspaper clip’… that is posted above this one.

“WHY did I clip this story?”

Before  “Chief Brostron”  becoming ‘Chief” – – he and my husband,  Lee  Aldrich were riding partners on the St.Louis Police Department – – and very good partners – – if I say so myself. – – So with me knowing  “Mrs. Susan L. Cost” – – and her story right below the “Chief’s” story – – just had to clip and save – – and with all kinds of  memories  – – to remember …”Lee” – – this was the week to find  this old news – – and with the computer  and “fourgrandmas.com” – – just had to let the whole wide world know… and remember if they remember either one of these fine people?

    I’m trying to find out more about the St Louis Society for Crippled Children. When, in fact, was it formed? The unofficial beginning, the official beginning, who started it etc.

      The above clip of a 1967 news article of “Chief Brostron” was in reference of his having worked with my husband Lee — and that my husband died in 1967. I was remembering the St.Louis Police Dept – –

      But in order to help you – – Phone (314)567-7705 and address; 9201 Watson Road – St. Louis, MI 63126

      Kindly remember that the newspaper clip above is 50 years old.

      Thanks for reading “fourgrandmas.com”
