(34)  Easter Sunday in Wabash, Indiana, 1963.  There is a
companion photo that I cannot find at the moment that
shows a very pregnant Bev looking not very comfortable in
her Sunday best.  That would be Bruce coming along.

(35)  Photo of the family boat on Lake Wawasee.  The name of the boat was "BBJ"
for "Bea, Bev and Jane".  In the back are family friends Jack Bibler and his son, Mark.  
In front is Jerry Wilkinson driving and his son Jim.  Picture taken in 1967.
(36)  1968 at Lake Wawasee.  The fish being displayed is called a "Dogfish".  We
always had a baited hook in the water with a bobber and waited for the sound of a
"hit".  "zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz".
(37)  Newspaper clipping From Jamestown in 1967 showing Jerry Wilkinson with a
group from the Toastmasters Club.  Jerry was also involved with the Jaycees in
Jamestown.
(38)  Herman Wilkinson's retirement party.  He worked his entire adult life at Chrysler
in New Castle in the Tool and Die Shop.  In 1940 his served a term as UAW local
President.  This would be in 1971.
(39)  Grandchildren of Herman Wilkinson taken the day of his funeral in November,
1975.  Back row from left:  Greg Wilkinson, Jim Wilkinson, John Peden.  Front row
from Left, Paul King, Karens Husband; Karen Peden King and Bruce Wilkinson.
(40)  Family portrait taken
using Greg's new camera at
Christmas time, 1981.  Jim
has just come back from his
first trip to India and was in
his Thesis year at the CAP,
Ball State University and
Greg and Bruce were both
at Perdue University.  I just
noticed all the boys are
sporting facial hair that
year.  Hmmm.
(41)  Jim Wilkinson on Chowringhee Street in central Calcutta, July 1981.  The
orange sign on the upper floor of the building behind him is the advertisement for the
Gospel Meetigns Jim was helping to hold at a nearby University auditorium.  Later
this day He helped volunteers check dumpsters for abandoned babies.  Pretty
intense stuff for a kid from the midwest.
(42)  Jim Wilkinson in the Kremlin,
Moscow, Soviet Union in 1989.  An
interesting trip.  The Soviet Union
was in rapid collapse at this point
and Jim saw the April 19th
Massacre at Tblisi, Georgia and had
several chances to interact with local
independence organizers in Georgia
and Estonia.  
(43)  Scans of the obituaries for Jerry Wilkinson in 2002.
