June 18, 1960, Appleton Post-Crescent
I missed Father's Day on the blog due to taking some time off the week before and didn't give it a second thought. But then I came across this neat picture presentation the other day from 1960 and it reminded me that I had forgotten the day entirely. So many portrayals of dads, especially on television and in movies nowadays portray them as bumbling idiots and the butt of many jokes (Homer Simpson, anyone?). It was refreshing to find this poignant tribute to fatherhood that I can share with you. To all the dads out there, my hat's off to you.
