LOOK at the cool articles Larry found today in the Brainerd Dispatch from March and May, 1950. Yes, we've featured him before, in 2010, but not with these two episodes.
(This Paul Hesch was dad's cousin, the son of Joseph L Hesch and Anna Heurung. He was one of two of Joe's kids who stayed in Minnesota. He was 2 years younger than dad).
I think we met him at some point when we were kids, but I wouldn't put money on it ☺
So Paul went to St Louis to promote tourism--in 1950! Seems pretty forward-thinking for lil' ol' Brainerd, doesn't it? Of course, they were promoting the whole lakes and resorts area, the cool nights and excellent fishing, not so much the towns.
This second clip speaks for itself, we think. Larry and I decided we liked him better with the beard...and sideburns ☺.
