Years ago I posted about this bottle, maybe you remember? It the time I had thought of a different Sailor White but I found some new info. I'll be darned if I can find the old post though.
Sailor Jim White (http://boxrec.com/media/index.php?title=Human:214114).
If any of you cyber space cadets can help find the original post, I'd appreciate it.[8|][8|]

Never mind, I found it. Of coarse anything else is most appreciated.

If this was so famous, what was it and why can't I find more? [:D][8|][:D][8|]

Hubert's Museam (http://www.showhistory.com/huberts.html) The legendary dime museum, freak show and arcade.
And why was he holding down there?

After pouring through all the information, new and old I'm thinking he MAY be the famous "strong man of the Navy" of the 30's, 40's and 50's. Problem is there were many references online to that. Some were an Ignatius Neubauer, possibly his real name prior to being the "side show" act. Maybe he was a Jack LaLanne inspiration?
I sent an entry to History Detectives.

This was an interesting read (I thought)
