Lloyd Juggling Fire - Shippee

Photo by David Shippee,

This is the third photo in a series from an article in the Minnesota Daily that my friend David Shippee wrote when he was a journalism student at the University of Minnesota.

David died tragically on August 3, 1987, while on assignment as a photo journalist  on an ill fated expedition down the Yangtze River in China.    He was only 29 years old and left behind his young widow, Margit Shippee.

David and Margit began dating after re-connecting at an after party following a St Paul Open School reunion that took place along the Mississippi River in the back of my van.
