(Note the date of his election: March 1955. He had just turned 29. Brown v. Board of Education had been handed down the previous May. He and my mother had been married the previous November. The two of them had moved back to our hometown just months before. My sister would be born on this very day, October 20, later the same year, first of five children between 1955 and 1965. Still ahead: the events described in this post.)
