On the 25 July 1939 episode of the Information Please radio show, the guest panelist was Maury Maverick. He was the Mayor of San Antonio and a former Congressman from Texas. He was very entertaining as a panelist. One of the more interesting moments in the program was when a question was read from NY Mayor La Guardia about several obscure issues about which probably only a legislator would know.
Maverick was the grandson of Samuel Maverick, from whom we got the common cattle term. However, his grandson was quite a colorful and distinguished individual in his own right. He was known for not following the party line on matters and for coining the word gobbledygook.
