The Banfield Family Newsletters

By:  Walter Banfield

 

Thanks Walt for the pic!

(L. - R.) Jim Banfield, Walter Banfield, & Charles Banfield

 

     The Following Letters were written with the wit and satire of Walter Banfield to his older brother Charles Banfield.  Many of the letters contain stories of the Banfield family and their colorful legacy.  The line between what is true and what is exaggerated is sometimes stretched.  Uncle Walter never let a little thing like the truth get in the way of telling a good story and when it came to telling a story, Uncle Walter was the best.  Abraham Lincoln once said:  "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time."  Well Walter.....you gave it a try anyway.  Hope you enjoy!
