From the 1942 Lucky Bag:

RICHARD G. STERN, JR.

Dick, Sterno

"Hey, Mister, where are you from? Philadelphia? Do you know——?" Philly is his home town, and if you talk to him a while you will want to make it yours. He likes variety in everything except hops, and Saturday night will always find him there. He never puts down a good book, and there are few people more interested in current events.
