Old Photographs Saved From Trash Can ~ #65 The Collector and a Collectibles Book

This newspaper clipping was found with the old photographs. It is not dated and does not include the name of the newspaper.

clippingL. Vance LILLIE (1920-1993) was the son of Thelma HOLT (1901-1984) and Samuel Royalty “Roy” LILLIE (1895-1979). In his youth, he suffered from tuberculosis and had only one functioning lung. The pulmonary impairment did not keep him from becoming a successful adult. As seen in the article, in 1960 Vance LILLIE and Robert P. Cosgriff started up the Cosgriff Company, a fund-raising consultants organization. Vance was named the first member of the “$100-Million-Dollar Club” of the organization for actively participating in fundraising campaigns totaling over $100 million.

Lynn Vance LILLIE  was the last owner of this collection before it was saved from the trash. I find it quite interesting that the only photograph of him in the collection is one where he is receiving a book on collectibles!

As a military brat I've lived in Georgia, France, Idaho, West Virginia, Spain, South Carolina, Texas, and Luxembourg. Married 39 years with two grown children. When I’m not doing genealogy, I spend time riding my racing bike with my husband through the wonderful countryside in Luxembourg and surrounding countries.
