Walter Power was one of Jack’s drivers during his 1946 campaign for Congress.
During the last days before the June Democratic primary, he was sent down to New Haven to retrieve reprints of the Readers Digest article that had been printed about the PT109 incident. The campaign had sweet-talked the publiishers into printing 100,000 copies and they were shipped by train from Philadelphia and had gotten side-tracked somehow in the train station.
Powel drove to the train station and in the middle of the night went through locked train cars and returned with a portion of them to allow volunteers to start addressing and mailing them.
