Donald L. Boyd (1923 - 2008)
Dad at age 3 months with his mother. Leona Ardys (Munsinger) Boyd was 1/64 Native American, by descent from the Indian mother of John Preisz/Price. The characteristic black hair and eyes were expressed in both Ardys and my father. I wish I had a photo of Ardys' mother, Mary E. Smith, in her youth, who was 1/32 Native American, but I don't -- I suspect she was black-haired also.
Same day, with his father.
About 1932, in the uniform of the day.
Probably summer of 1925 (age 2+).
About 1938 - 39
High school senior photo, 1941
Dad was a photography enthusiast, including adapting a darkroom in the basement of the family home. This was either an early version of a "selfie", or else he had his father take it, about 1941.
Donald Sr. and Donald Jr., circa 1940
