Photo of McCullough Partee and I (1988)

I just found this fuzzy photo of McCullough Partee "Mac" and I. (1900-1989) He was a wonderful artist and illustrator. I was able to meet him in "88 and he and his wife invited me and a friend over a few times to their home. He was happy that we loved the old illustrators and showed us his art, talked about the old days, old illustrators he met and gave us some sound advice. Also we both were volleyball players. He in the 20's and me in the 80 & 90's. I have a Hume Fogg High School 1918 yearbook. He is in it and did the drawings for it. He really liked Leyendecker when he was in school. Everytime I pass Hume Fogg I think of old Mac. This photo was taken in 1988. I am old and grey now!

He could certainly have liked worse than Leyendecker. I have one of Partee's paintings, johnedray@hotmail.com
