The Observer (and most likely hundreds of small papers) published this “People, Spots In The News” feature back in the 1950s. This one, featuring the new F-105B, Billy Graham, Natalie Wood and a dog was in the June 6, 1957 edition.
A couple of week earlier, Detroit Tiger Harvey Kuenn was featured, along with a Hughes Aircraft Co. inspector looking over a bar of pure germanium. The mineral is used to make match-head size semiconductors to replace vacuum tubes in electronic circuits. What a great idea.
