My thanks for these wonderful photos to Al and Yola Wildman Nugent, Helen Wildman Bell and Horatio Wildman, Jr., children of Superintendent Horatio Wildman, Sr. and his wife Carmen (“Chata”) Wildman de Gonzalez de Beovide. The Wildman’s lived in Avalos from 1946-1954 while their father, Horatio Wildman, Sr. was Superintendent of the Mill. During that time the Wildman’s lived in Casa #32. They recall homes of others who lived in the Colony such as Casa #31 (a duplex) Carol and Roger Stearn and also the Jarvis family. Casa #33 the Goddards, Casa #34 the Lowenbergs, Casa #35 Mr. Cox. Their aunt was Amelia Quintanilla, manager of the Colony hotel. Their family survived the prison camp in the Philippines, with Yola Wildman being born before the war started in a French hospital in Baguio in the mountains of the Philippines.
