July 10, 1944
Adm. Chester Nimitz is the cover story this week.
A photo feature shows the work of jigsaw puzzle makers John N. Henriques and Francis Q. Ware, who make fiendishly difficult puzzles under the name Par.
Life also goes to the Republican National Convention (I have an upcoming post about the convention, in which California Gov. Earl Warren turned down the vice presidential nomination).
The movie of the week is “Double Indemnity.”
These photos of Par puzzles made me wonder if they were used for “Citizen Kane,” but it looks like the ones used in the movie came from a different manufacturer.
