The editors take pleasure in inaugurating the first family photograph on the Gallery page, celebrating a woman who exemplifies the 70 + tradition of lifetime attainment and, among her many accomplishments, has at the moment eight great-grandchildren to prove it.
She is, of course, Virginia Pate Wetter of Havre de Grace, Maryland, who in 2014 was cited by the Library of American Broadcasting as a Giant of Broadcasting & Electronic Arts, among other achievements as the exemplar of small-town radio and among the pioneers who broke the glass ceiling in that industry and art form. She is pictured proudly here with a who’s who of grands (left to right) including Ian, Eric, Karina, Dylan, Aleksandra, Sydney, Polina, and Henry. This picture is a work in progress as a ninth great-grandchild is expected in November.
