"The inestimable impact of an early mentor"


My brother (left) and I confer with Grandpop Hallahan on age-appropriate
issues of importance during one of our many visits to his home
at 351 Owen Avenue, Lansdowne, Pennsylvania (July 1945).

1941:  here's JP, at 58, fly fishing on Lake Kennegabo, near Rangeley, Maine.
I was to follow in his footsteps within a decade, and continued to visit Grant's Camps
well into adulthood, even taking Jennifer and Susan in the late 1970s.
I think another visit is on order. The trout and salmon await!
