I thought you would be interested in these photos of Major Bragg
of rural Atwood, Illinois. One photo was taken last fall on his
1917 Heider tractor, the other on February 1, 1992 at a surprise
party for him at the local cafe celebrating his 96th birthday! A
remarkable man who lives alone, still drives a car or tractor, has
lived in the same house 76 years, and is considered a necessity at
the Douglas County Historical Steam Festival and Rockome Gardens at
Arcola, Ill., he’s a walking history book and doesn’t
forget anything!

He gave up ice skating after a fall when he was 70, but still
does anything else he wants to. He has been a subscriber to GEM and
other publications similar to it for many years and really enjoys
the For Sale ads.
