Mustachio May

Frank Hatch--"handsomest 'stache in Scipio"
To his wife's chagrin, my brother-in-law grows a mustache every May and competes (as The Despot) in a contest found here.  In honor of that competition, I present our own best ancestral mustache photos:

William Hunter

Frank Hatch, electrical engineer

Joseph Cramer--who was remembered to have "strained" his coffee through his mustache
Which one is your favorite?


  1. I don't know, William Hunter and William Ira Hatch are kind of tied for me. Jed fits in well doesn't he? Handsome even with that crazy moustache!

  2. anita, this is the nicest thing anyone has ever done for me. or at least for my moustache.

  3. absolutely none of the moustache genes made their way to me

  4. Very cute, Anita. I'm rooting for William Hatch, mostly because he has such a smooth look to match his stach.

  5. Love the Moustaches! My husband shaved his off last year - he had it for about 33 yrs - I had never seen him without it. It was quite a shock, but he has not grown it back.
