1909 Hunting Liscense

My Dad passed away this year and I've been going through a lot of his papers as a result.  I came across a bunch of old family photos and ephemera and will be posting some of the ones I thin you might be interested in.  One of the most interesting to me, just because it was kind of unique, was my Great-Grandpa's hunting license from 1909.


He was chief engineer of the Chicago and Eastern Illinois Railroad, a handsome guy who loved his wife, my grandmother was his youngest daughter.  Funny how genetics work - blue eyes are recessive, he had blue eyes, his daughter (my grandmother) had blue eyes and my other grandmother had blue eyes, so I got my blue eyes in part because of him!
