Alfred Duryee Guion’s Christmas Card – 1964

"Greatest Generation" Life Lessons

I believe this 1964 Christmas Card was the most ambitious card that Grandpa ever designed, and unfortunately, he passed away in September, two days after his 80th birthday, before it was finished. The family worked to complete it and included a message that Grandpa had composed, probably years before, to be appended to his final Christmas card. When completed, it was a 21-page booklet, covering  many personal touches of Grandpa’s children, their spouses and 20 of his 21 grandchildren. (His 21st grandchild was born two years later) Consider this Grandpa’s Christmas Legacy.
