Military Monday - WWII War Effort Donation

My 2nd great grandfather, William R. Roesch established the Eau Gallie Record newspaper in 1916.  He was its writer, publisher, and editor. When this pioneer became Mayor of this quaint town of Eau Gallie, Florida his son, my grandfather, William P. Roesch, assumed most of the responsibility for the production of the paper.

It was in September  of 1925 after the death of the Mayor's wife, Ada, and a week later, his son's wife, Nellie, that father and son decided to sell the newspaper. 

When WWII was fully engaged, my grandfather donated the old printing press.
