Hello everyone, I come to you with a great mystery. This is related to Philadelphia and it's history as he was a resident (Germantown). I hope with our combined efforts we will be able to uncover some more of the truth, or at the very least you can help point me in the right direction.
I am a student at the Episcopal Academy in Newtown Square. In the science department there is a ship dedicated to a man called Daniel Wister who died for unlisted reasons in 1938, 8 years after his graduation. I have managed to collect only a little information on him (almost entirely from his brief yearbook page).
He was born April 11, 1911 and lived at 5430 Germantown Avenue. He died in 1938.
As I said, there's very little I have on him, and running his name through many search engines has produced next to nothing. For a while I believed him to be one of Owen Wister's (novelist) children but have only recently discovered the names of all the children and found he is not one of them.
Thoughts? Ideas? Questions? The game, as they say, is afoot.
