This newspaper photo came from the November 11, 1953, SEATTLE TIMES. Harold Wave Whicker is shown holding two of his wood carvings. A resident of Guemes Island, Whicker had been at various times a professor, cartoonist, miner, cowpuncher, newspaper man, sailor, collector of Indian myths, and a wrestler. By 1953 his heart limited him to one quarter mile a day of walking, so he painted Northwest scenes or, when in bed, carved wood. He enjoyed having his paintings shown at exhibitions and having people come to his house to view them; he hated selling them, but sometimes would give newlyweds one so they could have something beautiful in their first home.
