Narrative by Junebug Clark: Photograph of Wade Hamilton Clark. In the image, Clark is wrapped in a blanket sleeping with the wrist identifier visible. December 13, 1978. Son of Junebug & Kay. A year prior I had photographer 11 births for Providence Hospital's Development office. They were seeking donations to build a new birthing wing. I shot, natural, epidural, C-section, home birth, Leboyer, etc. This was before I had a cell phone or pager and my wife Kay kept constant tabs on my where abouts. I did not miss a birth and every one of them came late (except for the induced one) So when I got a call to shoot an ad for Eli-Lilley, (Fly Detroit to Chicago one evening, travel to a farm, at sunup shoot a catle rancher feeding his catle and return to Chicago and fly home to Detroit, on our first child's due date, Kay said go ahead. Wouldn't you know it. She went into labor and delivered before I could get back. My father, Joe Clark HBSS, was there though and shot the birth in real time. He photographed me at three minutes old. So, if we had to send in a second shooter who better than Grandpa Joe. I called the hospital soon as I got to a pay phone at the Chicago airport. The Labor/Delivery nurse at he front desk said, "All went well with the birth and wait, they are bringing Kay out of the delivery room now." And she put Kay on the phone and I could hear Wade crying. I rushed home, took a shower (I had been laying in a feed trough taking photos) and rushed to the hospital and made this photo shooting through the new born window. Photo by: Junebug Clark.
