W.O.LEWIS, engine collector and retired electrical engineer, passed away July 22, 1994 while preparing for an upcoming engine show. He will be remembered as a man who knew the world around him, from the birds in the trees and the animals in the pasture to the crops in the fields and the machinery to bring them in.

A drive through the country was a never-ending education about such things as the kudzu on the side of the road, or the path and capacity of the electrical lines overhead. Engine collecting with the associated tinkering and talking became a pleasant way to spend time with good people.

W.O.'s sons and grandchildren will run his rig at the upcoming Lincolnland engine show in Hodgenville, Kentucky, in his honor.

Submitted by Michael Lewis, Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York 72504.
