Those of you who
know me already know this story ... bear with me ...
Back in 1998, at our first Great Mohican
Gathering, an unexpected treat
awaited us at the movie theater. Scottie & Barbara Willis, of
Marion, NC - both of whom worked extensively in the hair department on
the set of The Last of the Mohicans - appeared with volumes of photo
albums filled with their treasured memories. Many Gatherers had been
promised images, but for one reason or another, they were never
delivered. Stuff happens.
Then, during this past year, Barbara passed away suddenly. Just before
she died, she asked Scottie to attend this year's Fifth Annual Mohican
Gathering. He did. She also asked him to share the pictures. He did
that, too, handing out some prints to gleeful Gatherers, and delivering
the photo albums - which included these shots - to me at the Post Office
where I am "gainfully" employed.
The dilemma then became, which pictures to choose. There are so many. In
the end, I chose what I felt were most representative of the set. Other
factors were: attempting to avoid too much reproduction of image types we
already have up on this web site, and what you, the visitor, might be
most interested in viewing. It wasn't easy to decide, but really, no
matter which ones I selected, it was going to be good. Without a doubt,
the Willis' personal collection is the best we've seen. There are some classics
within! You'll see some details you've never before seen!
