Members of the Woman's Club of Huntington and guest speaker Jim Comstock. He was the owner/editor of The West Virginia Hillbilly paper in Richwood, W.Va., said Col. Robert Hanger. "He was a very close friend of mine and known as 'Mr. West Virginia,' " he said. "I still have quite a few editions, as I was a contributing writer from 1961-1974. The ladies are holding an edition of his paper. He looked like this when I featured him on my 'Neighbors' TV show on WHTN-TV in 1956-1958. We remained friends, and I booked him on many speaking engagements in Virginia in the mid- to late-1960s, out of Charlottesville." Comstock died in 1996 at the age of 85.
