W.H. “Wib” Coakleys daughter, Edna, 92 will receive WVTA Honorary Membership in appreciation for sharing her Fathers photos and information with us. Mr. Coakleys fur was chosen as the best handled fur in the US for the 1936-37 trapping season which won him a 1937 Plymouth sedan car. More updates on the Convention in the next issue.
