ALBION – It appears these were the Republican faithful in 1956. They were perhaps gathered at the Albion Town Club for a reception honoring Harold Strassen, center, a candidate for Senator at the time.

From left to right: Hamilton Doherty, Paul Miles, Barbara Moore, “Dick” Eddy, Strassen, Harold Hill, Thomas Heard Jr., and Robert Heath. They appear to be wearing badges that state: “Orleans County for Eisenhower.”
