Recently, we donated our family photos to Western Illinois University.
There are 9 folders in the collection spanning Pre-WWI through the 70s. The Wade family currently owns WSCo.The family has always been involved with WSCo as Gene Wade (later an owner) began working there on a GI grant. Ursel usually worked in the office. Our parents first met at WSCo. Folder 9 which contains Holocaust documents will be up soon.
