    • Lt. Colonel W. H. Gurnee, Jr., Here For Family Reunion at Parents' Home

      [image] Caption: W. H. Gurnee, Jr., now a lieutenant-colonel with the United States Army's European general staff at Heidelberg, and his wife, above, are visiting his parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Gurnee, Sr. While in Winona, two of his three brothers and their families have joined him at the Gurnee home for a family reunion. A fourth brother, a lieutenant commander in the U.S. Navy, stationed at San Diego, California, is unable to be present.

      [article] The return to the United States after 18 months in Germany of Lieutenant Colonel W. H. Gurnee, Jr., is the occasion for a family reunion at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Gurnee, 714 West Breadway, this weekend.

      Colonel Gurnee is combining a 30-day leave with two weeks of official duty in Washington and thus is able to bring his wife and two-year-old daughter to Winona where he is joining his brothers and their families at the home of his parents.

      Brace T. Gurnee and his wife and two children have come from Milwaukee for the weekend, and Herbert L. Gurnee and his wife and 18 month old son drove here from Minneapolis.

      Another brother, Lieutenant Commander Robert L. Gurnee, presently stationed at San Diego, California, will not be able to be present.

      Colonel Gurnee, a graduate of West Point, departed for Germany on occupation duty in November 1947, immediately after graduation from the Harvard university graduate school of business administration. Colonel Gurnee, a member of the European general staff, is stationed in Heidelberg as the deputy director of the budget division.

      Feeling that "leave time is no time to discuss air lifts, blockades, and the other pressing problems of the occupation," Colonel Gurnee prefers to recount his numerous fishing trips in the Bavarian Alps and his travels throughout Europe.

      Colonel Gurnee will return by air to Germany on June 1 to complete his three-year tour of duty.

      The four Gurnee brothers were all in service during World War II. Brace is now in the advertising business in Milwaukee, Robert is in the Navy as a lieutenant commander, and is on the west coast, and Herbert Lee Gurnee was recently graduated from the Harvard law school and is now in an office in St. Paul.

      An additional guest at the family reunion is Miss Leesa Lakin, sister of Mrs. W. H. Gurnee, Sr., who has come here from Palm Beach, Florida, for the gathering.
