Letter from Frank to Bob

July 18, 1978

Not sure of the exact year that this letter was written…but I am guessing that it was written to my father (Bob Wilkinson) after we moved from Columbia, SC to Tulsa, OK). I believe this move happened in 1978. We only ended up staying in Tulsa for one year. We moved there so my father could take a job at Acme Brick. Apparently the job wasn’t exactly what my parents expected.

The drawing is by Joanna (my grandmother) of what I am guessing is the house my parents bought in Tulsa, OK.

My parents won First place in the Emerald Valley Community Club Christmas Decoration Contest and it was covered by the local paper (slow news day).

Letter and doodle

May 31, 1974

This is a letter and a doodle my grandfather or grandmother did on the back. No idea when this was done. It would have been some time before my grandmother died in 1982. They had several pear trees in their front yard, which must have been the inspiration for the drawing on the left.

Prince Phillip – Beating Retreat

June 10, 1970

Someone must have sent my grandparents this from England. This is Prince Philip Beating Retreat in June of 1970. I believe this is a special booklet produced for Prince Philip’s 49th Birthday.
