This is Joe Manning, of the Lewis Hine Project. I have completed stories on both of these boys.

Old Sam

Sam may look like a little old man, but his diminutive stature may be more due to the fact that he was apparently not quite 6! In the Dallas census records there is always just one Sam(uel) Stillman listed, born in 1907. And only one Samuel Stillman is in the SSDI, birthdate Dec. 7, 1907, died in Dallas in 1993 at age 85. Gotta be him.

Dallas Duo

God, this could have been my dad! Pretty amazing photos.

"Woman Tells How Car Cut Off Her Limb"

Sensationalist journalism at its best.

Odell looks like a legitimate little boy, but not Sam. He's welcoming you to Munchkin Land.
