As part of our continuing celebration of the East Aurora Advertiser’s 150th anniversary, this week we’re speaking with John P. Spooner, grandson of publisher John Raymond Spooner, who left Larkin Soap in 1914 to buy the paper. Three generations of the Spooner family were involved in 67 of the paper’s 150 years. During his career, John was an Advertiser pressman and typesetter, advertising salesman, photographer and film developer, reporter and general factotum.
