1959 – The Night I Found My Son

Mid-century at midnight

Mid-century magazines would accept articles written by both professional and non professional authors. On occasion, they would publish articles written by parents who wrote about their experiences. This article by By Harold Y Roderick tells about the night he got a phone call telling him that his teenage son was in a serious car accident.

“There’s been an accident, Mr Roderick. Jim is hurt, but I think the other kids are all right. your car turned over.”
