Need help Wash Dc Aug 22 1945 photo: PAW farewell dance photo.
My dad was working in Washington DC for ( I was told) the Navy Dept in 1945. We were living in Arlington VA, and came from West Quincy Ma. He was a civil Engineer. My parents names were Arvo Alfred"Al"and Margaret(Bradley)Nelson.
I have just com upon an old photo taken on Aug 22, 1945 at the Wordman(Wardman)Park Hotel. It is at a farewell dance for PAW(what was PAW?)
In this photo are: Mildred Lynch, Mr and Mrs Frank Wilson, Evelyn and Gerry Reese, Bob Brickman, my mom (Margaret Nelson) and some Colonel, whose name looks like Warnick but can't quite make it out. I don't know where my dad was-he may have been taking the photo.
I would like to locate the families of these folks and learn more about them, especially their connections to my parents. I am sure even though I was only 4 and to young to remember, that I probably met some of them back then.
I would like to know where they live/d. Who their children, grandchildren etc may be etc.I am not trying to be nosey, its just my inquiry mind-and my interest in people that knew my (now deceased )parents. Dad died in 1952, and mom in 1976.
Thank you for any help-feedback etc.Maybe someone can remember them???? E-mail me if you wish at [email protected]
