Archiving Angeles (AA): Little Olympians


The Olympic Games were still a few years away. But, that did not deter them.

The Great Depression had just begun. But, that did not deter them.

They were younger and less experienced. But, that did not deter them.

Johnny, Jerry, Rex, and Mike were Junior Olympic athletes. When the torch was to be lit, they would be ready.

The year was 1929.

  1. Jason this is my most favorite post and I look forward to each one.

    I’d like to know what happened to those 4 guys.

  2. Thanks, Fraz. I wish I would have had more time to dig today. Unfortunately, there are no records of any of these young men going on to participate in those Games of ’32.

    It does make you reflect about your own plans and dreams of the past. Where did we think we’d be in 2008 when it was still 2005?
