We received this photo from Walt's son, Walt, Jr. along with this e-mail:

My name is Walt Erickson Jr. I was searching the net and came across the Broadcast Pioneers website with my dad's photo. It is interesting to read about the people that were part of our lives way back when I was a kid growing up in Philly. Walt Sr. is months away from his 90th birthday. He and my mother live in Williston, Vermont. They celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary in January 2006. Dad's memory has faded due to signs of Alzimers but he still remembers his family and friends. I just wanted to share this with anyone who remembers the old days.

Walter Erickson was our organization's 3rd President and served in office during 1964 and 1965. He is one of our founding members.
