A new member at this forum edro3111 signed up because of a post he stumbled upon https://www.antique-bottles.net/forum/G-I-129-Franklin-Delano-Roosevelt-TVA-Norris-Dam-Quart-Calabash/m-589319/tm.htm I had put up earlier this year at this forum. It was the Roosevelt calabash flask made to commemorate the building of the Norris Dam. It turns out Eddie lives right around the corner from the Dam and sent me some great pictures of the Dam then and now and information about the Dr. Hall who commissioned Wheaton Glass to produce the bottle. Additionally Eddie owns three of these bottles. Here is the link to my website. Scroll down to the bottom. http://historical-american-glass.com/south-jersey-calabash-type-historical-flasks.html How could Wheaton have turned his request down. He has to be the tallest most imposing bottle collector then and now 6'11" 275 judging from the picture,he could play center in Basketball and Tight end in football. He was well spoken of also from Eddie and George Mckearin who met him back in the day. From what Eddie has told me he had his bottle collection in his Doctor's office. In this picture it is obvious which one is Doctor Hall.
