Chet Shafer

Chet Shafer was a nationally-syndicated writer in the 1920's through the 1950's. His family is starting to release some of his writings and photographs.

Taken from the Bumpkins' Biographer in Time "Corn in the Cage. In the fact-&-figure heavy Journal of Commerce, Shafer's column sticks out like a shock of corn in a bank teller's cage. Most of Chet's columns are as casual as any street-corner conversation: they concern a funeral, a backyard spat, an old gaffer's boyhood reminiscence, or plain cigar-store gossip."
