Who Is Brace Beemer?
Brace Beemer would be unknown to you unless you were a kid growing up in Brooklyn in the 1940s. Three evenings each week at 7:30, The Lone Ranger was broadcast on the Blue Network station, WJZ .
For some reason, it was broadcast a day earlier from WXYZ in Detroit and I was able to receive that station,with a good deal of static ,in my bedroom. How proud I was to know what was going to happen to The Lone Ranger and Tonto a day before any of the other kids at my public school in Brooklyn.
It's funny but I can't remember if I attended P.S.152 or P.S.153 but I clearly remember the man in the mask with his silver bullet. It was Brace Beemer.
For over twenty five years I been collecting bookplates and this is my first blog entry. Stay tuned and I will try to add more bookplate trivia each day.
