ALJBS Archive's First Submission

New Feature of is started by William Queale, Jr.

June 1953. The first Corvette was about to roll off the line, Egypt declared itself a Republic, and Tony Blair is but a month old. It was the beginning of the Cold War, just after the Korean War. I Love Lucy was the hit show on television that year and Ben Hogan won three Golf majors. 1953 was also the Eighth Session of American Legion Jersey Boys State. John H Lewis, Jr. of Lafayette (Sussex), New Jersey (Post # 258) was elected Governor of ALJBS, and William Queale, Jr. was a delegate. William, from Gloucester County, would later go on to a career as a Planning Consultant, in which he was retained in 150 different towns and cities across NJ. Below is a photo submission from Mr. Queale. Our sincerest thanks go out to Mr. Queale for helping get this archive project started.
