Puff Piece

An article written about Goldman in Boston Globe in 1962. The piece supposedly presages a new direction for plywood in the field of agricultural irrigation, though Plycraft never ended up manufacturing anything other than boats and furniture. I was interested to see how a media outlet portrayed Goldman, and the author’s fixation on Goldman’s physical fitness struck me not only as odd from a journalistic standpoint, but also contradicts the many descriptions I’ve found of Goldman as he got older.
