    I have the camera used by Knox. A note from Hazel says that he got the camera in college and used it to take photos in WW1 and throughout the rest of his life. You are welcome to have it as I haven’t an heir. I haven’t had time to follow your blog but will try to catch up when I have time. I also have his old call letters (sign) for his Ham Radio
    Activities. You probably have a collection going on. Let me know if you would like them.

    Wow Michael,

    Thank you so much! What a generous offer. I’d love to post pictures of the photo and his call letters, too. I’ll send you an email.
