Birthday Wishes to Lucian Adolphus Whipple Sr., 1878-1979

Today Lucian Adolphus Whipple Sr. would have been 132 years old, as I was reminded when I received a note this morning from his descendant, Bennett Whipple. Lucian lived to be nearly 101 years of age. He is in the Whipple Genweb at http://whipple.org/21479, where you can see a photo at age 100. This photo is of Lucian in his younger days.

Whipple Avenue

On a recent trip to California, I passed the Whipple Avenue exit several times when traveling between San Francisco and Silicon Valley on the U.S. 101 freeway. (Whipples are everywhere ...)
