IN MEMORIAM


| August/September 1990



CHARLES WILL HIDE, age 83, of Greenfield, Indiana passed away May 21,1990.

Charlie was a retired farmer and an advanced collector and restorer of antiques. He was an excellent machinist, mechanic, gunsmith, and electrician, always ready to help anyone including the younger collectors just starting in. His antique collections included engines, autos, guns, radios, clocks, coins, toys, railroad items, and about anything else you could name.

He attended all the local engine shows as long as his health permitted. He was a charter member of the Pioneer Engineers Club, Mid-America Threshing Club, Tri-State Gas Engine and Tractor Club, and National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association.

He will be greatly missed by his friends, and at the shows, auctions, and swap meets. He always wanted Bidder No. 13 at the auctions. He said it brought him luck.
