Dawson or Dillon Unidentified Photos

I've scanned in more photos.  I think they are from either my Dillon or Dawson lines.  One photo previously identified as Dudley Dawson was included in the envelope.  There was also a post card of The Robinson Art Shop, Clovis, New Mexico where the Dillons lived.

I lean towards Dillon in this photo.  My brother Kenneth in written on the reverse.  In the 1930 Federal  Census, the two sons of Jennie D. (Dillon) Scott were living in Wyoming (Clarence) and Illinois (Kenneth).  Car aficionados:  are those vehicles close to 1930 cars?

Sharon Anne Hogan, 1945-2002

While researching my Dawson line, I came across these on-line memorials to my Second Cousin Once Removed, Sharon Anne Hogan, the daughter of Elta (Dawson) and Everett C. Hogan.  Sharon was a university librarian at the University of Illinois at Chicago, as well as vice provost for information management.  She was in the forefront with bringing libraries into the electronic-age.

Unidentifed Family in a 1916 or 1917 Maxwell

Trying to identify this family.  Possibly taken in the Scottland, Edgar Co, Illinois area.  Notation on the reverse side of the photo says 1916 or 1917 Maxwell.


This is a 1970s photocopy.  Probably of the couple in the car above.
