Donor stated that the record belonged to his mother ”Frances Capps who resided in Olive Hill, Ky., from March 1951 to June of 1963 was Happy Chandler’s county chairwoman when he ran for Governor in the fifties. I believe this is why she had the record and was also commissioned a Kentucky Colonel for her work in Carter County in helping Happy get elected."
