We learned last week of the death of our classmate, Jim Burke. At this time, we have no other current information to share with you, however, we did come up with some “news” that may be of interest.
Several weeks ago our St. Louis Post Dispatch newspaper announced the availability of their newspaper archives covering more than 140 years. Since I do a lot of research on our St. Louis Browns and Cardinals baseball teams, I signed up for their free 7 days offer. I searched on key dates and events. The quality of the newspaper articles were excellent for the most part.
After I finished researching the sports events, I thought why not search CBC 1955. One of the key articles in the Post was about Jim Burke.
