The Seattle Chamber of Commerce ran a celebratory advertisement in the November 19, 1953, issue of The Seattle Times saluting the nominees. (It was a large advertisment at 24" tall and almost 30" wide.) There were a hundred "young men" selected as potential newsmakers. The only two I personally interacted with turned out OK.

If you "click" the newspaper, it should open outside this page and have a magnifying glas icon that will allow you to view it almost full-sized.

a salute to John F "Jack" Gordon, Mr. Seattle
