Harry T. Graham

Collection of Margaret Perry Graham, 6-12-04

via email from Margaret Yearwood Hutchinson, June 12, 2004
My name is Margaret Yearwood Hutchinson. For the past three years I have had the honor of caring for Margaret Perry Graham in a guardianship role. She has recently passed away (April 21, 2004,) after a lengthy illness. She has left her personal effects to me to do with whatever I see fit. After browsing through her family photographs and personal papers, I have concluded that her family was an important one. Her father was Lt. Col. Harry Graham, an early Bird aviator, and her grandfather was Barton W. Perry, another important military man. Margaret was an only child, and she never married. Her mother, Grace Perry, was also an only child. I would love to honor Margaret by having her distinguished family memorialized in a museum, or other such place. Since Big Bear was the city that Margaret called home, I feel that it would be a good place to have a museum display about her family.
I am writing to you because I found your email associated with Harry T Graham on the Early Bird Site. He apparently already has a plaque and memorial in a park in Big Bear.
As I stated earlier, I am trying to figure out a way to memorialize Margaret Perry Grahams' family, and share her rich history with those that might be interested. Margaret would not have liked anyone to profit from these pictures, except maybe a museum.
