Former President Harry Truman settled in the back of the Presidential Limousine with his successor, President Elect, Dwight Eisenhower. They were leaving the White House heading for the Capitol for Eisenhower's inauguration ceremony on January 20, 1953.
When the United States entered the war in 1917, Walt Disney wanted to enlist just as his brothers had but at only 16, he was too young. Disney found out the Red Cross Ambulance Corps was accepting volunteers as young as 17. So Disney utilized his artistic skills to change his birth date on his passport application from “1901” to “1900.” This photo is Disney in uniform by his vehicle before leaving Paris to return home. As can be seen in the photo, he decorated vehicles with cartoons while overseas. Later stating, “I found out that the inside and outside of an ambulance is as good a place to draw as any.”
The guys responsible for crafting the Star Trek Enterprise studio model in 1964. It was originally built in 1964 by Richard C. Datin, Jr., Mel Keys, Vernon Sion (pictured), and Volmer Jensen (not pictured) and has been restored 4 times.
Dad loved Schwan's Ice Cream. We always had at least three of these big tins of Schwan's in the freezer at all times! I'm sure the Schwan's man had a big gold star on the map for our house.
Correction : Be Advised, the man on the right with the pocket glasses case
is indeed Volmer Jensen , he was a friend of mine , told me lots of interesting
facts about the Enterprise. 12 Feet long , it was filmed upside down (weight issues)
then the film was rotated in post production. Volmer Jensen designed , built and flew
over 2 dozen of his own small aircraft, including several ultra-light weight hang gliders .
Thank you! This is one great thing about the HAMB, if you post some erroneous information soon someone will come along and give the right information.
I've always loved Star Trek from the first series on.
Is it worth all the cranking?
The cool guys hang around and eat ice cream
Just like yung'ins, always getting in the way.
Now, they hop on Air Force 1 with their last couple of bags and take off, leaving the new guy to fend for himself.

Did you happen to also know Russ Simpson, who also worked on Star Trek models, including ones for the first movie? Gary

We had an enormous 12x12 "cottage" that we camped in for years that my grandparents bought. That thing was heavy but we got a ton of use out of it.
Grandpa and my aunt.
Love this Jag he had.
