  • Tooker, the Remarkable Dog is an interactive CD ROM that teaches young children to think critically and make intelligent decisions about dilemmas that reflect upon the ideas associated with social responsibility.

    The Cd was designed and built by Jodi Wigmore. Jodi has a dog named Tooker, who was actually named after George Tooker the rather well known American painter whom Jodi wrote an Art History Masters thesis about. Jodi met him at his home in Hartland, Vermont, in 1985 and said he was very gracious.

  • A photo taken about 1900 of George A. (Gus) Tooker (1851-1934) and his family. Warren's father, Floyd (1897-1948), is the youngest. Note he has two thumbs. He said everyone had to hold still for several minutes to take the picture, and he moved his thumb to dislodge a fly. This would explain why no one is ever smiling in those old photos.

    About the time of this picture the family moved from Westport, SD to Macleay, OR, so it could have been taken in either place. George and his wife, Isadora, are buried in the Macleay Cemetery. The family farmhouse is still there, but was sold by George's grandson (also George) about 15 years ago.
