Wilson T Harper

Contributor: Mptothill Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

My Grandfather died before I was even thought of. He died 2 years before I was born. I have been told that he was a hard worker. He always made bread, did the dishes and vacuumed the floor. He stern and didn't take any messing around with kids at school. He was the principal of the Snake River high School. He helped kids with their math. He treated everyone fair and honest. In the winter he was the one to cancel school. At about 4 in the morning he would go out to the desert and make sure the roads were good enough for the buses to drive and pick up kids. Wilson was a complainer. Whenever they went on trips Wilson would only go see and then go right home. He didn't like to stop. He would drive the bus. He was a boxer at BYU.

WILSON 'T' Harper was born on 27 Mar 1917
WILSON 'T' Harper was 11 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations.

WILSON 'T' Harper was 22 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
WILSON 'T' Harper was 27 years old when World War II: The Allied invasion of Normandy—codenamed Operation Overlord—begins with the execution of Operation Neptune (commonly referred to as D-Day), the landing of 155,000 Allied troops on the beaches of Normandy in France. The Allied soldiers quickly break through the Atlantic Wall and push inland in the largest amphibious military operation in history. The Allies of World War II, called the United Nations from the 1 January 1942 declaration, were the countries that together opposed the Axis powers during the Second World War (1939–1945). The Allies promoted the alliance as a means to control German, Japanese and Italian aggression.
