By Broadway

My Dad, Julius Broadway was born in the Midwest in the magnificent year of 1926 and was the second eldest of 10 siblings. Dad was born a few years after World War 1, also called the "Great War" during a time in history when the spirit of hope and optimism was in full swing. The United States and their Allies had won the war and private industry was booming. The automobile and airline industries were beginning to soar and the American dream was well on it's way to becoming a reality. There were many notable births in 1926 and Dad was in illustrious company that year. A few notable births includes Queen Elizabeth II, Chuck Berry, Andy Griffith, Mel Brooks, Miles Davis and Tony Bennett. Dad was born amongst the stars and was certainly a star in his own right.
