Special Picture # 101 – Grandpa’s 1963 Christmas Card

In 1963, Grandpa returned to the home and family theme and incorporated the holiday tradition of giving cash as a gift by using an envelope from the City Trust Company. He designed bills from the Guion Development Bank and Trust with pictures of his grandchildren, the Guion Place on Huguenot Street in New Rochelle, New York and the Family Crest. The back stated the the specifics – name, date of birth and the names of their parents.

One more grandchild was added to the family after Grandpa passed away. Ced and Fannie produced a daughter after three sons, Andrea Pike Guion.

Tomorrow, I’ll be posting the final Christmas Card from Grandpa to his family and friends. It takes the form of a Yearbook, Class of 1964, Guion University of Trumbull, Connecticut. It also includes a message prepared and waiting for his final Christmas Card.

On Monday, I’ll begin posting letters written in 1940, a time when Lad was still working in Venezuela and Dan and Ced had been in Alaska for only a few short months.

      Mrs. P -His family is still prolific. Dan’s branch of the family is twice as large as Lad’s. They already number about 50 and two more are expected within the month.
