Homer Everett Adamson
(September 02, 1917 - January 13, 1995)

Literary figures as diverse as John Steinbeck and John Donne have believed that all people are of the same essence, and they've stressed this idea in their writing. The implications are comforting: we are all important in the overall scheme of life. Therefore, any person's relative is important to all of us. What more reason can there be to memorialize someone in any forum? Any person's life might just as well be my own life or the life of someone dear to me. All lives are of equal value, and they deserve some record of existence. In my younger years I was in the presence of Homer Adamson many times, and I once knew him relatively well. "Uncle Homer" was important.
