In Memoriam


Strange, David, Thomas Wolfe Review


Frank Amendola, a longtime member of the Thomas Wolfe Society, died at home in Fletcher, North Carolina, on 25 July 2011 at age 91. He is survived by his wife of fifty-five years, Beverly Amendola (an active member of the TWS), five children, and six grandchildren. Mr. Amendola was born in Winnetka, Illinois, and served as a medical corpsman in the army overseas in the Aleutian Islands during World War II, receiving an Asiatic Pacific Theater Ribbon with a Bronze Battle Star as well as other honors. He was Director of Marketing, Public Relations, and Advertising for Cherry Electrical Corporation where he retired in 1989 after 29 years. During that time he was an avid golfer. He also served for many years as a volunteer for the Chicago area American Red Cross. After retiring to the Asheville area in 1989, the Amendolas participated in many community activities and enjoyed traveling to Europe, Canada, and New England.

Mildred Gambrell, of Pendleton, South Carolina, died on 24 November 2010 at age 87. She and her husband, the late Edward C. Gambrell (nephew of Thomas Wolfe), were charter members of the Society and enjoyed attending the Thomas Wolfe Festivals that were held each October in Asheville during the 1990s. Born in Anderson, South Carolina, Sara Mildred Gibson Gambrell was a graduate of Anderson Girls' High School and was a homemaker and a member of the First Presbyterian Church. She is survived by four children and three grandchildren.

Stanley Johnson, a life member of the TWS, died 27 July 2011 at the age of 90 in Portland, Oregon. Born in Garland, Utah, Mr. Johnson was a 1942 graduate of the University of Utah and held a PhD in English from the University of Southern California (his dissertation was on the works of Thomas Wolfe). He served in the army during World War II, participating in the invasion of the Palau Islands and serving with the occupation forces in Japan. A longtime member of the English faculty at Portland State University, where he co-edited four textbooks, Mr. Johnson also developed a great interest in music, especially opera, and enjoyed traveling, particularly to Paris. Beginning in 1980, he wrote articles for the Portland Opera programs, emphasizing the literary origins of most operas. In 2010, because he wanted to provide a keepsake for members of the Thomas Wolfe Society, Mr. Johnson put together a chapbook of essays on Wolfe that he had written in 1955, 2002, and 2008; had the booklets professionally printed; and then sent a copy to every member of the TWS. …
