The only readable inscription on this box of negatives is Wilson Wedding, Feb 1, 1948.
I was able to figure out, through some genealogical sleuthing, that this was the Everett E Wilson (1922-2012) wedding with Angela Pastor (1926-2018).
What made it a bit easier was the 1948 yearbook I bought on Ebay few months back. This has every Wilson marked in the book, so obviously, this book was owned by a “Wilson”, possibly Everett WIlson himself. What are the chances !
I’m posting all the wedding images without much comments, these are clearly left for genealogical use as the couple had children and grandchildren.
Everett graduated at the same time as Joel in 1948, so they were most likely friends. Both had served in WWII, that provided an extra bond.
I didn’t find any getting-ready images for this wedding, but they could be stuffed in another box.
UPDATE: Per Andrea Lillie’s gracious comment on Facebook; “Looking over the wedding box photos, I can identify Morris Chapel as the location of the wedding. The man officiating the wedding appears to be the famous Tully C. Knoles !”
The reception with sandwich meal is at the Stockton Gun and Rod Club, still in existence.
The rest of the images are portraits of two still unidentified men, we’ll see these at a later time.
Although Everett and Angela were both students in 1948 at College of Pacific, their engagement and subsequent wedding are not announced in the Pacific Review periodical.
Everett Eliot Wilson was representative of the Ex-Committee at College of the Pacific in 1948. He was equally President of the Alpha Kappa Phi fraternity and part of the inter-fraternity council. Angela Pastor-Wilson was Tau Kappa Kappa in 1948, and her name is listed as A. Wilson in the 1948 Naranjado College of Pacific yearbook.
For genealogy sake, the grave headstone of Everett and Angela, RIP.
