Charles A McCorkle

On December 9, 2011 we lost one of the pillars of our Indiana Artifact collecting community. Charles (Charlie) McCorkle, age 89, passed away. Charlie, as we all knew him, was born in Tippecanoe County, Indiana. He graduated from Jackson Township school in 1940 and then entered military service in World War Two. He served in the European theater in the U.S. Army. After military service, Charlie attended Purdue University and graduated in 1948. He then moved back to the farm and continued farming the rest of his life in the same community that he was born and raised, near West Point Indiana. He was a dedicated member of the Indiana Collecting Society, rarely missing a show anywhere in the state. Charlie always had a beautiful display an loved to share knowledge and information with everyone. He especially enjoyed the children at the show and always had candy and interesting puzzles for the young and adult alike. He will be missed by all.

Lloyd Rose

Lloyd Rose

Lloyd Rose, long time member of the Greater St. Louis Archaeological Society, died on Feb 11, 2011, at the age of 95. He was able to play cards with friends until about two weeks before he died.

He collected artifacts for approximately 70 years, mostly in North St. Louis County, Missouri. It is a very rich archaeological area overlooking the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers. The full spectrum of prehistoric sites from Clovis to Proto-Historic can be found there. He also collected in the Aleutian Islands when he was stationed there in WWII. His in-laws were farmers in North County which gave him access to many sites. He was well known for writing the location of his finds with the date found on the artifacts. He documented many of his discoveries in the Central States Archaeological Journal.

Lloyd and his wife LaVerne regularly attended artifact shows in Missouri and western Illinois. It was always a pleasure to visit with them. Their finds enhance the artifact frames of many Midwest collectors. He was also a craftsman and made many artifact frames for sale, most of which are probably still exhibiting artifacts. LaVerne’s health deteriorated before Lloyd’s and he visited her faithfully every day while she was in a nursing home. They are survived by son Gerald and daughters Marilyn and Diane and several grandchildren.

Lloyd was one of the old time collectors, seriously interested in artifacts and the people who made them. He was respected by his contemporaries and admired by those who were younger. His interest led him to walk hundreds of miles, probably more than anyone in the area will again because many of the sites are gone. His legacy is the artifacts with his distinctive writing and the knowledge he shared with other collectors.

Bob Eagle Rampani

In Memorial: Bob Eagle Rampani

On Monday morning, April 18, the Greater St. Louis Archaeological Society lost one of our best ambassadors for avocational archaeology. Bob had gone turkey hunting at his son's farm near Forestell, Missouri. He never finished that hunt.

Bob is survived by his mother, one brother, two sisters, four sons, and one daughter along with eleven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Bob served with distinction as a demolition expert in the Army during the Korean War and received several decorations. He retired from the McDonnell-Douglas Corporation, where he worked as a sheet metal specialist.

Several years ago Bob joined the Laureates Society. He published two books of poetry and one book of short stories. There was a third poetry book being typed, but it may not be published.

He joined the G.S.L.A.S around 1980 and became one of our biggest supporters. Bob was an introvert and it took him many years before he started his career with us. He had his own way of saying things, and he was difficult to understand at times. Many of us can remember his calling a discoidal, “dis-ka-del.”The more he learned, the more involved he became. He saw that our Secretary/Treasurer was having difficulties
keeping up with the demands of a growing society and offered to help him with the sales of posters. That was fifteen years ago and the start of Bob’s becoming the unofficial business manager of the G.S.L.A.S. Several years ago we changed the Constitution to add the position of Business Manager and Bob finally became “official.”He took great delight in signing up new members and renewals and selling all the publications we offer. There was no such thing as turning down a question about artifacts. He loved helping people, especially those new to the hobby and children. “This society cannot continue unless we get the kids involved,”he was always preaching. Bob considered friendships more important than any of his artifacts. He told me many times that his collection was nothing compared to all the friendships he had acquired while in this society.

We are going to miss his gruff voice, the backwoods way of his speech, his dry sense of humor, and his tireless efforts to make ours a better society. We have lost a true friend. May God bless you, Bob!

In Memorium: Roy Hathcock

On March 25th, 2005, American archaeology lost a great friend and supporter. Roy Hathcock passed away at the age of 72 from complications following open-heart by-pass surgery.

Roy was a sought out fixture at many state-sponsored artifact shows within Central States for several decades. His warm charm and pleasing wit will be sorely missed. Roy was always helpful and provided guidance to many beginning collectors. His advice and opinions were always taken seriously by friends and fellow collectors. Many professional archaeologists also appreciated Roy’s willingness to communicate and share opinions and information, thereby helping to bridge the gap between professionals and amateurs.

Roy was a registered member of the Cherokee Tribe of Tahlequah. He is well known for his books on Native American pottery. His first, Ancient Indian Pottery of the Mississippi River Valley, was published in 1976. A second edition with many additional examples of Indian ceramic art was released in 1988. Roy’s second major archaeological contribution, The Quapaw and Their Pottery, was published in 1982. This book was dedicated “To the remaining Quapaw and to the preservation and recognition of their ancestral heritage.”Items from Roy’s personal collection are currently on display as a part of a traveling exhibit developed by The Art Institute of Chicago. Roy’s collection is diverse, with artifacts of interest from many part of the Central States region. Documentation of Spiro Mounds artifacts, the history of the site and interpretation of the artifacts were of special interest to him.

Roy was a United States Army Veteran and served with the Missouri National Guard. He is survived by Norma, his wife of fifty-two years, and by his son, Bryce.

Tom Zmudka

My heart was saddened with the knowledge of Tom Zmudka's untimely death that occurred in late 2003. I had previously been aware of some quiet rumors, but nothing definite until just recently, when my suspicions were confirmed by two local people. Tom was very instrumental in organizing, implementing and following through with the northeastern Illinois Archaeological Society shows held in Utica, Illinois on a semi-annual basis for many years. Tom was a resident of Ogelsby, Illinois. He was a fast and true friend of the late Don Edwards, a collector from the Utica, Illinois region. An age difference separated the two but not their love of the local history and archaeology of the area. It is my opinion that Tom was never recognized and given the thankfulness that he deserved for all of his hard work, dedication and devotion in his putting on”the Utica show. With all due respect, I thank Tom for all he did so selflessly. It would be most appropriate for all of us to take a minute and say, THANKS, TOM! His walking on has left a void that wont be replaced.

Floyd Easterwood

Fri, 7 Oct 2005 08:08:49 EDT. It was reported last night on Arrowpack and confirmed this morning by Leslie Pfeiffer that Floyd Easterwood of Fredricksburg, Texas passed away in his sleep October 4, 2005.
Floyd was President of the Lone Star Archaeological Society. Floyd and I were visiting at the Temple Texas show in July of this year. He was very supportive and excited about the direction that CSASI was taking. He was quick to offer his help in anyway necessary.
He is survived by his wife, Amy, this children, and a host of friends. I think he was in his early fifties. Leslie Pfeiffer will be sending me more detailed information shortly.

Floyd was an important member of the collecting community and a great man. He will be missed by many people. Please remember his family in your thoughts and prayers

When I brought up arrowheads, she lit up and told me she liked to collect them as well. That began a long friendship.
