    FDR was in office when I was born, and it was toward the end of his second administration (early January, 1938, to be exact).
    I remember the broadcast of his late-1941 "Day of Infamy" speech. It must've been something my parents felt to be very important, to have impressed me enough to have listened to it at my age then, and to remember the experience now.

    I was born toward the end of Truman's first term, but my earliest recollections are of Ike. I even have an "I Like Ike" button. My mother was crazy for JFK and we had to go out to see him when he came to our town (Norfolk, VA) during the campaign. When the open Lincoln Continental slowed to pull over the curb at the athletic field of the high school I would later go to, everyone rushed him. Folks were grabbing at him, it was pandemonium. I swear he looked at a buddy of mine who got up to the car (and was right in front of me) and asked him if he tore the button off his coat.

    When he and his brother fought de jure segregation in the south, we didn't think much of him, feeling very picked on. I heard he was killed on my way to 10th grade geometry class and wasn't exactly torn up. But as the weekend wore on, it was the saddest, most oppressive feeling I can remember. I still regret my initial reaction - but kids are stupid, at least I figured out the magnitude of what had happened pretty quick.

    Yep - I was not only the one born when Calvin Coolidge was president - I can prove it with this photo.

    I was born 8/12/1926 and in July, 1927, my parents were vacationing in Custer State Park in the Black Hills of South Dakota. As luck would have it, the president was at his "Summer White House" - the Game Lodge - for the purpose of dedicating Mt Rushmore before the sculpting began. Mrs Grace Coolidge was out on the front lawn visiting with any tourists that wanted to talk to her - imagine that today with how the Secret Service guards the president's family and prevents such socialization. My parents visited with her and asked if they could take a picture of her. She not only agreed but offered to hold their 11 month old son for the picture and said she had a son nemed "Jack" also.



    My mother never forgave me for being too interested in Mrs Coolidge's Chow Chow dog to look at the camera while the president's wife was holding me.

    Just to show I haven't changed much, here I am with friends sharing lunch.




    and still loving dogs -
