Dick Eastman blogged the other day about
how you could search Life Magazine images via google, so I had to check out
whether they had the photos from the 1951 article I snagged while researching
who would be king of America if George Washington had been king instead of
president (see this link for the article: http://www.ancestrymagazine.com/2008/09/cover-story/the-man-or-woman-who-would-be-king.).
At any rate, sure enough! Here's one of the potential monarchs -- although he
had passed away by the time I started climbing the Washington family tree.

asking me to find Bob Hope in the Ellis Island database (search on Leslie
Hape), so I'm delighted both that he's getting a stamp and that the Ellis
Island library is being named after him!
