Here’s another bit of history from my mother’s collection.
It’s the advertising sales staff of the Honolulu Star-Bulletin in the 1930s, with my mom’s handwritten caption. As usual, click on the photo to see a larger version with more detail.
I wish the sign were legible.
And I don’t know her connection with Willard Wax, who was quite a bit older than she was.
Wax’s obituary ran in the Star-Bulletin on May 20, 1998.
Bullet A. Willard Wax, 94, a former retail advertising manager for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, died April 14. He was also a retired manager of D.C. Wax Office Equipment. He was born in Baltimore. He is survived by wife Maryjane; sons Philip F. and David W., five grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Services on the mainland.
