  2. Alfred Stuart Campbell Jr. was my Father's- Father name. My Grandfather went to Princeton in NJ, as did all the men in our entire family. Later my Grandfather taught at Princeton

    Country Day. He served in the Red Cross during WWII as a Field Officer in North Africa, he also trained men for the Dept of Psychological Warfare and raised Guerney cows to produce milk with special healthful antibodies amongst the many interesting achievements throughout his life.

    He wrote Applejack for Breakfast with my Grandmother Helen Monteith Campbell. I'm trying to learn how he's related to Alfred S. Campbell the photographer.

    I feel sure we are connected with Alfred S. Campbell and even suspect he may be my Great-Grandfather.

    I'm terribly interested in pursuing more information about my family line. Please contact me at joyvdk@aol.com.
