Diver Dunne


A pencil drawing of my Father taken from the cover of an old "Hammond Times" magazine, a publication devoted to the Hammond Organ enthusiast. Herbert "Kirby" Dunne was a professional organist, salvage diver, cartoonist, and a lover of life who never let go of his childlike wonder of the world. He has been gone for many years, but I will always remember sitting on his lap and reveling in his many tales. He was witty, charming, had lots of friends and acquaintances, and in my opinion, was truly enchanted!

Wonderful portrait of your dad. I have a vague memory of the story of the SS Normandie -- I'm going to follow Ken's links are read more. I hope you have this drawing well preserved and framed!
