Last month we showed you this picture of Charlie McCarthy from Literary Digest magazine (if you missed the blog, click here).

Dave Miller was so intrigued with the blog that he found the actual Literary Digest magazine with the article about Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy.

He was kind enough to send us the article.
