Model-builder Herbie Rodgers, 1951

Posted on January 6, 2019 | in Uncategorized | by

In February 1951 Leader Woman’s Page Editor Laura Lyons included a write-up about Herbie Rodgers, a prolific model-builder, in her “The Social Whirl” column. Rodgers, 15, favorites to build were model boats and airplanes. His mustang airplane, on the table in the background, won a contest sponsored by a local hobby shop the previous summer. The Henry Clay High School sophomore also made the lamp, seen in the background, from a cedar post. Herald-Leader Archive Photo
