It’s pretty amazing the interest in this History Mystery post on the York Daily Record’s Facebook page. Perhaps it’s such a small part integral to the rest of the bulky product made in the thousands in York, Pa. Here’s the quiz: Thousands of these durable, indispensable parts were made in the 40 years before its ‪York, Pa.,‬ manufacturer closed about 1940. And many are in use and in fine working order today all over the world. What are we seeing here, and what company built this part for its signature product?

It’s primary time, so we’ll put up a pioneering elected ‪York County, Pa.,‬ official here. He was a respected attorney before he gained office and that reputation only grew in his short time as a judge.York County voters will seek to fill two county Common Plea Court judgeships this year starting with the May 19 primary. Can you ID this man of achievement?
