He quietly continued to work hard at the preschool and camp, and later in a small retail shop that my parents would open in the 1970s. That’s my dad. Jack is now eight-five years old. He lives in Florida with my mother. They have been married for fifty-nine years. He continues to draw and paint. These days he is experimenting with expressionism and abstract art. He also likes to paint Native Americans, particularly proud and dignified old warriors.
As there were no computers, he had a local printer reproduce them. Jack then painstakingly applied the Letraset lettering—which consisted of transferable letters on dry sheets of paper—to each image by hand-rubbing one letter at a time onto the images.

It was as if my father’s vast historical knowledge and extensive art and design work, learned and experienced over several decades, had come together in his book. Jack gave his book a simple title: Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address Illustrated.
