BJ Rudman asked what might've brought his gg'father to that city. Must have been
because the 1904 Olympics and Judy Garland's Fair were scheduled together.
Understandable the building and recruiting started as early as 1895, the year
of Sol Rudman's aliyah. St.Louis had to be aware of Chicago's story; their 1892 Fair
wasn't ready to open till 1893.
