Other Old Pictures from KRLD Radio

You may want to start at the KRLD Pictures Index Page, especially if you have stumbled across this page through the use of a search engine.

Must have been important.  I wonder what it was.

I don't know anything about this event.  Can't even guess.  However, it is certainly an interesting assortment of tired old faces from the early 20th century.

Well, perhaps "tired" isn't the right word.  I wouldn't have wanted to tangle with the fourth guy from the left.

Some of these people, especially Edwin Kiest (center), can be positively identified by comparing them to the photos in this booklet about KRLD history.

Click to enlarge Click to enlarge The man in the middle of this picture looks a lot like Woodrow Wilson.  A little research revealed that on October 28, 1911, future U.S. President Woodrow Wilson spoke at Fair Park Coliseum on "Woodrow Wilson Day."*

That would be long before KRLD (or any other station) went on the air.  So I don't know how this photo got into the file with all the others.

Updated 3/7/2006:

Today I received a very helpful email from Rachel Roberts of the Dallas Historical Society who sent me a clipping from the October 29, 1911, edition of the Dallas Morning News, that identifies the people in this photograph.

Note that Edwin J. Kiest was the publisher of the Dallas Times Herald until his death in 1941, a charter member of the Associated Press, and owner of KRLD Radio after 1927.

Quoting the newspaper caption:
In the front row, left to right, are E. J. Kiest, president of the State Fair; Gov. Wilson of New Jersey, Gov. Colquitt of Texas and United States Senator Culberson of Texas.  In the rear are Murrell Buckner, chairman of the local committee; John C. Robertson, president Dallas County Woodrow Wilson Club; Royal Watkins, secretary Dallas County Woodrow Wilson Club, and Walter Measday, private secretary to Gov. Wilson.
It also says, "Photo by Clogenson".  Apparently that would have been Henry Clogenson, who died in 1924.
