Wordless Wednesday: Grandpa with Bob Hope

My grandfather, Elmer Gorry, at work with comedian Bob Hope


  1. Too bad this is WORDLESS -- I want to know the story here. Yeah, I'm nosey.

  2. Hi Wendy! My grandfather used to be a producer for NBC and worked with Bob Hope a few times - I think my dad mentioned they worked together on a USO show. But they're both wearing tuxedos in this photo, so it must have been some kind of party. My dad wasn't sure what the exact occasion was in this photo and his side of the family has a ton of wonderful photos but never labeled any of them - a genealogist's dream/nightmare! :)
