Ole Larson's Folks

No close family anniversaries. Born this day in 1900: Adlai E Stevenson II. Stevenson served as Governor of Illinois, before running for President against Dwight D Eisenhower in 1952. The photo above shows him as US Ambassador to the United Nations, addressing the General Assembly during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962.


Also, on this day in 1945, the battle of Colmar Pocket ended in Alsace, France, in a victory for Allied forces, eight days after the death of George H Litch, as noted here.
