Since Nov. 1 is a Sunday, I’m just going to say it now: Happy 65th Stribberversary, Sid Hartman.
According to the paper’s intranet, Sid started at the Minneapolis Tribune on Nov. 1 1944. Nineteen-friggin-44! He was actually an intern then, and wrote his first column a year later, according to this MPR piece.
For perspective, Nov. 1, 1944 was six days before FDR beat Thomas Dewey to win an unprecedented fourth presidential term.
