Alexander Cheves Haskell is Tom's Great Grandfather. Alexander Cheves
Haskell's grandfather was Elnathan Haskell (Tom's Third Great
Grandfather). Miniature portraits exist of Elnathan, his wife Charlotte

The Haskell anthology books should be of interest to those planning to go to the Deer Isle Reunion in 2008.
Two interesting Haskell anthology books originally published by Win and Trudy Haskell are now available only through the Higginson Book link
at the HFA site (use HFA link above and then click on the Higginson Book logo).
There are two Haskell family organizations. The Haskell Family Association is based in North America and admits to full membership only residents of USA and Canada. The International Haskell Family Society is headquartered in England and is open to members world-wide. A quarterly journal is published in both societies.
These newsletters should be of interest to Haskells everywhere. If interested in joining either or both groups you may contact the respective secretaries via David A. Haskell's site via the Haskell web ring link below. Alternatively you may contact me. Planning is underway for a possible September 2008 reunion near Deer Isle in Maine.
In the summer of 2005 the International Haskell Family Association opened a new website which includes information about upcoming reunions:
IHFS Information (Headquarters in UK). There's been quite a bit of updating lately and it's worth a look.
Tom also served as Treasurer for the Missouri Valley Adult Education Association and served as Treasurer for six years for the Iowa Association for Lifelong Learning.
He has also held positions on the Board and has worked on conference planning committees and tries to keep the following two sites updated.
