  1. This is great! Is there a way to get a hold of Bob? I’ve actually been going through issues of the Italian News at the BPL from the 1930s-40s to learn more about Italian-Americans in Boston during WWII, and I’ve found the paper’s editor, P.A. Santosuosso, to be a fascinating character. I’d love to ask Mr. Skole some questions. My email address is BostonHistoryBlog(at)gmail(dot)com
