Mister Smith (Maybe?) Goes To Washington

Classic Photo – April 18, 2018

This week’s Classic Photo features a man at center, sitting, who is almost surely Southern Illinois Senator Paul Simon, though, estimating the age of the photo, he was likely serving as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives when it was taken. There does happen to be some information with this photo though, because on the back, written in pen is, “Farm Bureau Leaders in Washington DC”. Which means that even if the men featured in the photo have since passed away, there’s a very good chance there are still people out there who recognize them or are related to them. Is one of them a Mr. Smith? We hope so, but you tell us.
