Grand Marshall

An ebullient Mayor Richard Daley, Grand Marshall for the Bud Billiken parade, rides down Martin Luther King Drive in Chicago, greeting parade watchers. The parade, a community favorite, was created by Chicago Defender founder Robert S. Abbott in 1929 as a treat for his newspaper delivery boys.Tribune archive photo
