Happy Birthday Mr. President

In honor of George Washington’s 286th birthday, we thought we’d share some of the many front page renderings of the nation’s Founding Father drawn by men of the Civilian Conservation Corps. Nearly 100 CCC newspaper titles have been digitized and are available on Virginia Chronicle. The rest of the collection will be added soon: wASHIGNTONdWashington (8)Geaorge Washington (1) Washington (7) Washington(3) Washington(6) Washington .Washington (9)

    Love the CCC newspapers. What a great collection of tributes to George Washington, especially the surveying comparison!

    Love your title, too. Now imagining Marilyn Monroe singing to a man in a powdered wig, with wooden teeth.
