‘Stache Judging: Herbert Putnam

Calling Whitworth out on his ‘stache judging skills.

Badass librarian, badass moustache
Herbert Putnam, Librarian of Congress from 1899 to 1939, definitely knew where all the best moustache books were at

Whitworth’s been bragging about how he’s the ultimate judge of what makes an great moustache.

Well, just like he was wrong when he said the new Stephen King cover was nothing special, I’m going to say he’s wrong here.

I’m defying Whitworth to show me a man who rocks a moustache better than Herbert Putnam, the eighth Librarian of Congress and the man behind the Library of Congress system of classification.

Not only did this fellow rock his ‘stache well, but he embodied everything that makes this facial hair choice so wonderful: he was decisive, and he got shit done.
