Old Photo Friday: School Trip to the Capitol

WHO: Brian and his elementary school (probably several classes)
WHAT: Field Trip
WHERE: Washington, D.C.
WHEN: 1969-1970 (I believe Brian mentioned he was in the 5th grade)

It's doubtful that you can locate Brian in this photo taken on the step of the capitol building (his head is turned away from the photographer...he is in the top row about half way from the right).

But you might notice the older gentleman in the lower left hand corner of the picture....this is the late Senator William V. Roth (July 22, 1921 – December 13, 2003) a lawyer and politician from Wilmington in New Castle County, Delaware. He was a veteran of World War II and a member of the Republican Party, who served as U.S. Representative and U.S. Senator from Delaware.

Ever heard of a Roth IRA? Established in 1997, the Roth IRA was named for its chief legislative sponsor, Senator William Roth.
