Youngstown Jaycees Santa 1951

Youngstown Jaycees Santa 1951

Santa helping the Youngstown Jaycees with their project titled, "Mile of Dimes". Photo taken abt 1951.

The Youngstown, OH Jaycees were soliciting funds for the local T.B. Association. Santa and the Jaycees appeared on the sidewalk next to the movie theater (Warner Brothers' Theater?) in downtown Youngstown. They also were broadcasting live on the radio station, WKBN. Santa is seen giving something to children (candy or possibly a rabbit foot?).

Next to Santa on the right side of the photo is H. Richard Conner, who was President of the Youngstown Jaycees from 1950-1951. Mr. Conner was a salesman for Republic Steel Corporation.

The man next to Santa on the left hand side of the photo may be Russell Fish.

The rest of the people are unknown. The lady inside the bus may be the wife of a Jaycee.
