As we say goodbye today as a nation to President George H.W. Bush, here are images and pages from our archives dealing with his appearances in Scranton -

Image 2 - Republican vice presidential nominee George H.W. Bush uses his fingers as imaginary "antennae" to describe the reaction of a "little green man" from flying saucer on a visit to the White House. Bush, speaking at the University of Scranton on Sunday, Nov. 2, 1980, drew a roar of laughter from his audience by speculating how embarrassing it might be to explain to a visitor from outer space why President Jimmy Carter was occupying the Oval Office.
