Chuckle of the Day

Sometimes when I’m knee-deep in Park/e/s research, I come across something too good not to share.

Dr. Edward Luther Parks (1849 MA-1917 MA) [08R3240] Descendant of Richard Parke LK=R

From Revelations of a Grave-Robber: A Tale of Two Cities by Edward L. Parks, author of “Dr. Parks and His Book.” Boston: Press of Geo. H. Ellis Co., 1915.


“In the class of 1843 at Harvard College was a man who became a Doctor and was in the Civil War. He had two dogs, named, respectively, God Almighty and Jesus Christ. The writer knows his son, a Boston doctor, but has never ventured to ask if he knew about his father’s dogs."
