My wife's uncle, Malcolm McClain, earned a Bronze Star and a battlefield promotion--private to lieutenant--in World War II, then became a poet, painter, sculptor, studio potter and art professor. He photographed friends, family and progress in his work. His FM2 still has some clay from his studio. He and I were close. We lost him in 2012.
