Youngstown Jaycees Mile of Dimes

Youngstown Jaycees Mile of Dimes

The Youngstown Jaycees broadcasting live on the radio station WKBN during their "Mile of Dimes" project. They are seen in downtown Youngstown, OH near the movie theater (Warner Brothers' Theater?). The Jaycees solicited funds for the local TB Association.

The Home Savings and Loan Company Building is seen in the background (building with a point at the top of the building).

Youngstown Jaycee Irving Loewit is getting ready to speak on the radio. He is the shorter man seen between two tall Jaycee members.

The man to the right of Irving may be Russell Fish. The man to the left of Irving is unknown. The man with the hat that has his back to the camera is Walter Grey McKenrick Jr. (1917-2000).

Photo taken abt 1951.

Recognize anyone? Please let me know.

Theater

The theater in the photo is the Paramount which was on the same side (North side) of West Federal as the Warner. The Warner was/is much closer to the Home Savings building.
