My grandfather, Edward Pickering Parker, president of Parker Brothers.
And here's his desk! And much of what you'll see here has been sitting in this desk for at least 35 years.
This is not a history of Parker Brothers per se. (If you want a history, read "The Game Makers" by Philip E. Orbanes; it could hardly be improved upon.) This will be more of an eccentric family scrapbook.
EPP kept childhood photographs and a few newspaper clippings in this box. It includes:
Pictures of pigs, horses, and goats, presumably from his father's farm.
Some identifiable people. More unidentifiable people. That's my grandfather in the middle of the mystery mob, gnawing on something.
His 1939 Chevy. &c.
