We hope everyone is having a great holiday season and getting ready for Christmas. A mere 50 years ago we were all getting ready for the Christmas of our senior year. There was the Christmas dance, the Christmas assembly with the choir and a local minister speaking, concerts from the band, and ongoing basketball and wrestling tournaments.
People enjoyed our Thanksgiving scan of the Plain Dealer, so we've scanned even more of the Christmas 1961 Plain Dealer. Here are two cartoons - followed by links to some full page scans. (The front page article "Death Stalked Pioneers' First Christmas in Western Reserve" is quite a story!)
