An Update From 1947

I have been immersing myself in 1947 and for those readers who don’t follow my Twitter feed (@LATDailyMirror) or Facebook page, here’s what I have been up to.

From January 1947:

The American Mercury muses on Arthur Vandenberg’s chances in the 1948 presidential race.

Newspaper headline writing as it was in 1947 (“probe” was a necessary evil even then) from the American Mercury.

What’s an “angledog?” Scholars studying American dialects were on the trail in 1947.

Housing and birth control, 1947: Many veterans’ wives are seeking to delay children until they have their own home.
