Jim Wilson
"Mississippi native Jim Wilson, one of our country's most influential gardening experts, died on August 1, 2010 at age 85. The gentlemanly Jim, perhaps best known as longtime host of PBS's Victory Garden, rose from the backwoods of rural Mississippi to become an international gardening superstar. The lifetime honorary member of the National Council of State Garden Clubs was also president (and later Hall of Fame member) of the Garden Writers Association of America. Jim wrote or co-authored 15 books. His warm friendship and his nonstop encouragement will be sorely missed.” Felder Rushing, Clarion-Ledger Correspondent. Full article ($). Here is the cover of one of his (many) garden books. Many are available on Amazon.

Read about the great James Wilson. His great grandson is listed above - JW00011.

This info comes from JW00005: James Wilson's chief claim to fame (or lack of it) is that he was the only delegate to favor presidential election by simple majority vote. The concept was a radical departure for the delegates, who felt there should be some separation between the people and their leader, and a compromise (the electoral college) was eventually voted in.
