|G. Oliver Riggs, born Nov. 26, 1870|
I also like this photo below. It’s blurry, but you can tell that he’s smiling, which is not a typical expression for G. Oliver in his photos. He must really have liked that car.
G. Oliver was born in 1870 near Wapello in Louisa County, Iowa. Here are some notable people who also were born on Nov. 26, according to brainyhistory.com:
• Eugene Ionesco, playwright, born 1909
• Eric Sevareid, born in 1912 in Velva N.D., newscaster, CBS Weekend News
• Charles M Schulz, born in 1922 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, cartoonist

• Tina Turner, born in 1938 in Brownsville, Texas, singer
• Rich Little, born in 1938 in Ottawa, Canada, impressionist/actor
Can you imagine what a birthday party it would be, to have all of them celebrating together?!
Happy 141st Birthday, G. Oliver!
