What is Life? A magazine!

And in the 11 February 1952 issue of that magazine (it cost 20¢, in answer to that question), my grandmother’s brother appeared!  Uncle Heinie was in Life!

The man, just to the right of the only woman in the photo is Uncle Heinie (aka Henry Koontz, County Commissioner, Franklin County, Ohio).  The photo appeared in an article entitled “Life Goes to a Party Workers Convention – Ohio Republicans Write Their Own Ticket”

Now we all knew he was in politics and that he was the County Commissioner in Franklin County (Columbus is the County Seat), but this was the first I discovered his appearance in Life!
