The attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, left a deep impression on the American public, and both Congressman Bob Poage and Congressman Marvin Leath focused on the importance of the event in their oral histories. Poage had been concerned about the possibility of war. He began hearing basic details of the attack on the radio that night, but while “there was a great deal of talk,… nobody had much information” until the following morning. Leath was ten years old at the time; when his mother—looking “like somebody had just shot her”—told him the news, he “absolutely thought the world was coming to an end.” #PearlHarbor #PearlHarborDay #December7 #WRPoage #MarvinLeath #PoageLibrary #OralHistory #BCPM at Baylor Collections of Political Materials

Remember when traveling over the holidays to always follow the house rules. Congressman Poage was a master of this philosophy, and it shows in this photo. Before entering a Tibetan temple he removed his hat and shoes and placed them carefully outside. #BCPM #PoageLibrary #WorldTraveler #Respect at Baylor Collections of Political Materials

Did you know we have the #TravelDiaries of Congressman Poage? They tell us that #OTD in 1965, 52 years ago, Poage was in Egypt after traveling to Czechoslovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, and Turkey. After several days in Egypt, he went on to a Food and Agriculture Conference in Rome. Like this page, much of his diary discusses the people, agriculture, and landscape. #MondayMemories #WRPoage #Agriculture #PoageLibrary at Baylor Collections of Political Materials
