Happy Hal Lives On

I recently acquired a large collection of postcards written by Happy Hal in the 1960s when he and his wife traveled all around the world. Many written to family, one from Cannes was addressed to a Mr. Burns at WHBQ TV. I laughed when I read this, on a postcard signed Happy Hal: "spent the day swimming here. all the girls wear bikini bathing suits - oo-la-la!" I love vintage ephemera, but in researching about Hal and coming across this article, I was even more pleased to discover more about the man behind the postcards. Thought I would share!
