GenealogyBank carries the Springfield Republican, in which paper there are a few ads for Richard H. Pugh, Realtor, 345 State Street, New London, CT (these ads date from 1946-1948). There is also an article regarding Pugh’s marriage to Elizabeth Wilson in 1935, which article again states he is in “the real estate and insurance business in New London, CT”.
My guess is they schlepped out the uniforms from the WWI era while doing a drive for WWII?
The 22 on the council patch is a puzzlement, though.]]>
New York Times article 17 Sept. 1935, pg 23, Social News Books Section: “RICHARD H. PUGH.; Philadelphia Real Estate Man Built More Than 1,000 Homes.”
University of Maryland GRADUATION EXERCISES Baltimore and College Park Divisions RITCHIE COLISEUM SATURDAY AFTERNOON, JUNE FOURTH AT FOUR O’CLOCK 1932 lists a graduate of the School of Dentistry: Joseph D. Gitlin of Connecticut. A search on Ancestry.com revealed a family tree with a Joseph Donald Gitlin; I’ve inquired if he was a dentist.
Sadly, the city directories have lots of Joseph Beckers; without further clarification of whether we’re looking at Philadelphia, New York City, Newark NJ or other…hard to pin down. Adding to the problem for Googling is the presence of a prominent, modern-day Joseph Becker MD here in California.
Not sure why they’d have more than one, but I found a few Troop 22′s
1. Boy Scout Troop 22 of Park Slope, Brooklyn, New York.
Early Troop history is a bit hard to come by, buyt a 1929 Brooklyn Council Annual Report shows that Troop 22 originally chartered in Flatbush District in May of 1920 with 16 scouts….There is not much information available after that, but we do know that hte Troop was active in the Park Slope community in the 1940s; with a meeting place on Prospect Place between 5th and 6th Avenues. The Troop’s charter lapsed some time in 1954 or 1955.
2. There appears to be a Troop 22 in Allentown PA as well. (A boy did a report on going to Jamboree in Japan in 1971, and one boy listed was from said Troop.
3. Al Frioni Jr.
