Throwback Thursday: My Dapper Great Uncle Myron Fister

Myron Benjamin Fister (1905-1986), one of my grandmother Margaret Fister Hartley's brothers.  Inscription to brother Russell.  Courtesy of Tom Cairns.
I knew my grandmother Margaret had family back in Illinois, but for some reason never thought it strange until recently that I had never met any of her brothers.  My understanding is that Myron was a saxophone player (what little info I have on him indicates that he was made assistant band leader of Valley of Chicago Shrine Band in 1971), although I don't think that was his profession.
