Midkiff’s wife was sued because of an automobile accident. The lawyer for her insurance company thought she might have a chance on a counterclaim, so he recommended her to me. She recovered a small amount from the plaintiff’s insurance company, and the plaintiff recovered a much larger amount from Midkiff’s insurance company. Mr. Midkiff posed for a picture, and I joked about selling the photograph to the Navy to use as a picture of a sailor who had retired after twenty years.
