Previously Unpublished Picture #4, The "Cigar" Poem
I should have mentioned that this picture (the "cigar" poem) comes from the collection of Roland Held, who was called "little Rollie" as a child, and of course was named after Roland "Rollie" Free. Roland Held's father, Mel, was a close friend of Rollie Free from their days working at Hill Field in World War II, and until Rollie's passing in 1980. Mel assisted in the 1948 "bathing suit" record. Roland Held was willed Rollie Free's main scrapbook collection of original photos, correspondence, and clippings.
