William Milliken was born in Traverse City, Michigan in 1922.  His father, James T. Milliken, was mayor of Traverse City and later a State Senator as well as his grandfather who also served as State Senator of Michigan.  William G. Milliken graduated from Traverse City High School and attended Yale University where he was a member of the varsity basketball and track team.  He left Yale to serve in the Army Air Force in World War II.  Milliken flew fifty combat missions over Europe as waist-gunner and had to bail out over Italy.  He was awarded the Purple Heart for heroism and two Bronze Oak Leaf Clusters for bravery in World War II.

After his service, he returned to Yale and graduated in 1946 with a degree in political science.  In 1961 he was elected as a State Senator, like his father and grandfather before him.  From 1965 to 1969 he served as lieutenant governor under George Romney, and became governor when George Romney left office to serve in Richard Nixon’s cabinet.  Milliken went on to become the longest-serving Michigan Governor in history.  During his 14 years as governor serving as a moderate republican, he was chairman of The National Governor’s Association, and led in the formation of the Council of Great Lakes Governors.

After retiring from the governorship, Milliken was chairman of the Great Lakes Commission in Chicago, a Chrysler board member, a Ford Foundation board member, and an active member of the Police Foundation in Washington DC.  He also received honorary college degrees from virtually all Michigan universities.  He lives in Traverse City with his wife.

Reverend Ralph David Abernathy  (1926-1990)

When Ralph Abernathy walked into the room where I was set up to photograph him, he asked, “Are you from NBC, ABC or CBS?”  I said I was an independent, and he answered, “I like independence.”   Our relaxed portrait session was in 1985 during one of his speaking tours.

Mr. Abernathy was born in Linden, Alabama in 1926 and graduated from Alabama State University in 1950.  A year later he earned his M. A. in sociology from Atlanta University and became a pastor of the First Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama.
While living in Montgomery he formed a close relationship with Martin Luther King Jr.

In 1955 when Rosa Parks refused to move to the back of the bus, Abernathy and King organized the bus boycott, which after a year resulted in a ruling by the United States Supreme Court that segregation on buses was unconstitutional.  Abernathy was Mr. King’s right hand man in the Southern Christian Leadership, with the title of Secretary-Treasurer.  The two worked very closely together until Mr. King’s untimely death in 1968, where they shared a room together the night before the leader was slain.

After King’s death, Rev. Abernathy assumed the role of president of the SCLC, but never got the support his successor had.  Reverend Abernathy continued to work for civil rights and was vice president of the American Freedom Coalition until his death in 1990.

Sir Harold Wilson  (1916-1995) w2218

Harold Wilson first entered Parliament in 1945, and as a member of the labour party became prime minister in 1964.  He served until 1970, when he was unexpectedly
defeated, but was elected again in 1974.  In 1976 he surprised many by resigning as
prime minister, but was knighted the same year, and retained his seat in  Commons
until he was created a life peer in 1983.  Sir Harold Wilson was the longest searving
Labour prime minister.  He passed away in 1995.

While I was photographing him we talked about the famous portrait of Winston Churchill taken by Yousuf Karsh.  Mr. Wilson told me Churchill was preoccupied with the war and Karsh was not having any luck keeping his attention during the portrait session.  With his 8x10 view camera ready, Karsh snatched the cigar from the Englishman’s mouth
and as the prime minister glared in disbelief, the world’s most famous photograph was taken.  Harold Wilson told me it was Churchill’s favorite photograph of himself and he told Karsh he was impressed that the photographer was able to make a roaring lion sit still.  Karsh entitled the photo, Roaring Lion.  Mr. Wilson also told me that a portrait was painted of every prime minister and Winston Churchill  hated his so much that he had one of the gardeners secretly wrap up and bury his oil painting somewhere in the gardens of Number 10 Downing Street.
