It was a spectacular
event, with Pres. Lyndon
B. Johnson giving a mem-
orable speech to a throng
of dignitaries and to the
general public who flocked
to the site below the dam
to partake in the histori-
cal occasion that marked
the creation of the states
largest lake.
The upcoming celebra-
tion will take place from
10 a.m. to noon on Thurs-
day, Sept. 25.
It is a collaborative ven-
ture by the Lake Eufaula
Association, the Eufaula
Middle School and the
U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
Whelan is making
the miniature capsules
because of a deep interest
in history and a desire to
pass along something to
future generations.
My main reason for
doing this was my son and
daughter, Whelan said at
a meeting
last week of the 50th
Anniversary of Lake
Eufaula Dam Celebration
Committee, held Aug. 27
at Churchs Chicken.
The next committee
meeting is scheduled for
11:30 a.m., Sept. 10 two
weeks before the celebra-
tion, at which former Con-
gressman J.C. Watts, a
native of Eufaula, will be
the feature speaker.
Whelan told the gather-
ing he hoped his familys
future generations will be
My son and daughter,
I want them to be there
and my grandchildren,
he said.
He wants them to
attend the 100th anniver-
sary of the dams dedica-
tion, and to open the time
capsules and read the
messages that were sent
to them from 50 years in
the past.
The committee was
brought up to date on a
number of issues, includ-
ing that this week invita-
tions to the celebration
should be in the mail.
Of particular interest is
the family of the late Con-
gressman Ed Edmondson,
who died in 1990.
If not for Ed Edmonson,
the dam would not have
been built, Whelan said.
At least not as quickly.
Edmondsons survivors
include two sons, James,
who is a justice on the
Oklahoma Supreme
Court, and Drew, former
Muskogee County District
Attorney and former Okla-
homa Attorney General.
Edmondsons brother
was the late J. Howard
Edmonson, former gover-
nor and U.S. Senator.
In other news, Whelan
said the granite that will
be turned into a monu-
ment to be placed at the
dedication site, was on a
ship from China docked
near Houston waiting to
be unloaded.
By now, the granite
should be en route to the
mason who will turn it
into the monument, which
may take a week or more.
The monument is com-

that Shumway, without
premeditation, caused the
death of McIninch while
engaged in a misdemeanor
offense of reckless or negli-

Almost four days passed
following the July 4 boating
accident before Shumway
first made an appearance at
the McIntosh County court-
He was not charged at
that time.
Shumway reportedly
admitted in a statement
made to the OHP that he
was driving the ski boat
that collided with a pontoon
boat and a 1996 Stingray
boat that were anchored
together on Lake Eufau-
la about a mile from the
Eufaula Cove area.
The body of McIninch
was recovered at about 7
p.m. on July 7 one mile
east of Eufaula Cove, about
400 years north of the
shore line in about 17 feet
of water.
McIninch had been with
the group of people on the
two anchored boats. It is
believed they had been
there to watch the fireworks
that took place earlier in
Eufaula, nearby Longtown
and other locations around
the lake.
