Remember that little back-story I gave about me being a BLT at birth? It turns out that that photo was actually published by the local news paper!
A new goal was set: obtain a copy (or a scan, at least) of that page of the newspaper. It took some sleuthing, and some shuffling around to get to the right people, but I got it.
Obviously, my first stop was to contact that newspaper, The Hour. With all the news of the demise of the print media, I didn’t even know if they were still in business. Fortunately, I found a website and some contact information. The Hour is still alive and printing news for the residents of Norwalk, CT. A few emails back and forth and I managed to convince them that a photo of a (ridiculously cute) baby with lettuce on his head was published at some point in their history. Probably a bit skeptical, but extremely helpful, they told me that they didn’t keep records that old on site, but they gave the the contact information of the library that did.
Once in contact with the library, I gave the reference librarian the information I had and the reference librarian got to work. A little later, I had an email with scans of the microfilm attached. Now I get to share the glory of me in newsprint form with all of you fine readers.
