Fatally Hurt


This photobooth image and the newspaper clipping below were found together on eBay.  According to the unsourced article, “Albert Meadows, 28, of 78 Lagrave-av., S.E., was fatally injured near Mancelona when the car on whose bumper he was standing was struck by another automobile.  Meadows died in Petoskey hospital.”


Albert Dean Meadows was born November 9, 1909, in Powell County, Kentucky, the son of Charles Walker and Malinda (Tipton) Meadows.  Tragically, he died on Christmas day 1937 and left a widow, Ruby (nee Losey), and a six-year-old son, Charles Selby, to mourn the loss.  He is buried near his parents in Mancelona.
