Previously the Author was Allyn Eckford, Allyn had been forced to "relieve command" of the Wackett history due to illness however, he has ensured that the history of the Wackett will not be forgotten. Sadly Allyn passed away in October 2004 only days after providing updates to his research. His name will forever be linked to the history of the Wackett on this website.
