LEFT - Uncle Carl Corbett, my grandfather's only brother (1959). Uncle Carl died in a Veterans rest home in Sandusky, Ohio on February 12, 1964. I met him in 1959 just before my mother and I left for Arkansas. During WWI Uncle Carl suffered from the effects of gas attacks by the Germans against Allied soldiers. In WWII he enlisted in the Army Air Corp in November, 1942 but was discharged as a Corporal a few months later on July12, 1973, probably because of his poor health.

Brother Loy Michael White and his great grandfather Arthur Corbett Sr. I only have a few pictures of great grand father Arthur, but this one makes up for the lack.

Uncle Gerry and Norma (Evans) Corbett probably about 1956. Uncle Gerry was an Air Force photographer at Laughlin AFB, Del Rio, Texas where he photographed the U-2 spy plane during take-off and landings for the USAF 4080th Strategic Reconnaisance Wing. We visited Gerry and Norma in 1959 and Gerry took us down to the flight line to watch the engine start-up and take off of the then recently declassified U-2 spy plane.

Karen Stockton, ca.1962

Me, Oklahoma City, 1960. I was just starting my classes in the City and my friend and room mate Chuck Vetter owned this car (Fleetwod Cadillac).  He was a pre-med student and after he finished medical school he wanted to enter politics. He and his family were friends of then Democratic Lt. Govenor of Oklahoma George Nigh. We went to the capital building in Oklahoma City once and I sat at the Lt. Governor's desk. My entry into politics! My souvenier of the visit was a certificate naming me honorary Lt. Governor of the State of Oklahoma signed by Lt. Governor Nigh. Sadly, in my many moves since then it was lost.

My grandfather, Arthur E. Corbett (1899-1969), ca.1963 trying out his new fishing rod.

Arthur E. Corbett, ca.1965.  Grandpa was very ill from his Type I diabetes.  He died from complications related to his long time illness.
