The "Tree of Knowledge" was a conversation a few days ago on the JCHS Facebook page. I ran across a photo that one of our volunteers said "I remember that guy sitting on the bench by the tree talking to others." The name on the back of the photo is Bob Parker. His photo was in the Naomi Johnson photo collection. Does anyone know anything about this guy? This photo, I think, has become one of my favorites. Character and personality can't help but be felt when looking at this photo. I would have liked to have a conversation with him. ~Deb
