A clarification-- I should have mentioned that the Lawrence Eagle 
Tribune and WLAW were both operated by Alexander Rogers; it was 
Alexander (the father) who put WLAW on the air in 1937, with the help of 
other members of the Rogers family, including his son Irving. (The 
Hildreth & Rogers company name was more historical than actual-- Frank 
Hildreth had died way back in 1909.)   But when Alexander died in 1942, 
his son Irving took over, and it was he who made the decision to sell 
WLAW in 1953.
