Employment Letters from the Old Days

I want to thank the Edwards & Laird families for providing me with scans of these notes. The first shows the note Bob Armstrong wrote to Ken Laird when Imperial hired Ken in 1947. I like his comment about dictating letters in a small town.

Bruce Edwards, Sr. received this letter when Mr. Weth hired him in 1947.

I asked my mother about my father's starting salary in June of 1950 after graduating from A&M with a BA in Business. She said his probationary salary was $175 per month with a raise of $25 per month after 3 months.
