Harvey and Taffy in 1942

In World War II, Harvey (pictured left) was in the Air Force as a navigator. He was terrible at math, and Taffy pretty much did his homework for him. Taffy (pictured middle) worked on base as an accountant.  I have no idea who the guy on the right is.  I’m not sure if this is pre-or-post the Taffy Tucker incident. I’ve always had this idea of two different Taffy’s.  There’s Harriett, whom I don’t know at all, and then Taffy, who is this amazingly inventive, creative, passionate and driven person.  Somehow, I think that the haircut didn’t so much create Taffy as set her free.
