On This Date November 17th

On this date in 1973:

President Nixon told AP "...people have got to know whether or not their President is a crook. Well, I'm not a crook"

Also on this date in 1913 the Panama Canal  opens.

One of the workers* of the Panama Canal Zone was my father's uncle Oscar Ray Hunter* (1884-1963), son of William A. Hunter/Trammell.  Oscar married a Panama Canal project nurse Charlotte Georgia McCabe (1881-1958).  They had one son  William Ray Hunter, who was an engineer for NASA..  He and his wife Dorothy Grace Edmonson used to come to Hunter Reunions in Marietta and Blairsville.  

*Oscar was a bookkeeper for the Panama Canal project.
