I think I posted this years ago. At some point in my research, this appeared to be the first time a Thompson made headlines. February 10, 1926. Chicago Daily Tribune. I bought a copy of it. Interesting read.

Love to read about this kind of history, which without people like you, would disappear into the fog of history!

 

Thanks
