From the Farmer's Advocate on this day in 1937:
RETURNS FROM ABROAD
Thornton Perry, salesman for the Jefferson Motor Company and a World War veteran, has returned from a trip of three months abroad, arriving in New York aboard "The Queen Mary" on Saturday. Although visiting ten countries including the British Isles, Mr. Perry took special interest in France and Belgium where he served as an aviator with the A.E.F. during the World War.
