#74) Information about lost Libravet sought by Niece

Occasionally we are contacted by people searching for information about a Libravet they have lost contact with. Recently, we received an e-mail request from a lady who was searching for detailed information about her deceased Uncle, Verle McClure. She knew he worked at Librascope over 50 years ago, but little else for certain. A quick search of the 300 plus Librazettes on our Librascope Search website, produced a dozen issues that his name appeared in. A closer study of those newspapers indicated that he had started with Librascope on July 6, 1948 and retired sometime in the early 1980's. During this time, he was a popular union representative in the shop. This information, including a photo of Verle taken for his 25th service anniversary in the July 1973 Librazette, was greatly appreciated, and provided enough information to pursue additional searches. Verle passed away in 1992 at the age of 77.
