mystery solved re: Roger Calkins - again, thx! (FB from Paul Schlapper) I left for CA in 1968 and visited him in 69 or 70 - in fact my 1st ex and I had dinner with he and your mom on that trip. He told me all about this ad and it cracked him up how people would come in the store, the dots would connect and they would tell him his mom was looking for him. He had an amazing sense of humor and was so much fun to be around.
Roger Calkins is my dad, found him in 2000. In 1969 he would have been married to my mom & in San Francisco, owner of music stores. Missing since 1956? At 12 he was in KC, jamming at the sock hop. He met/married my mom/moved to San Francisco in 1962. Div. in 1972 & she moved back to KC. lost touch until 2000. I moved him near me because of his poor health. I've never seen this pic. Thank you muchfor it. I bet he placed the ad himself. He was very good at PR! I will ask him. FBme Shelly Willey :)
That’s great! I wondered if it was PR but I’m glad you found a bit of history.
