about

The Wilsons: Occasionally Broke, But Never Poor is a story about the early days of the Wilson family of Texas, from 1926 to the mid-1960s.

It describes the Great Depression and how the family patriarch, Dr. Emilus Wilson, saw most of his eleven kids and their families move back home to Corpus Christi.

The book talks about the early days of Jack and his brother, Welcome, at the University of Houston, who were dropped off at the University of Houston with fifty dollars and told that they were on their own.

It talks about their successful endeavor to obtain a Houston bank charter in the early 1960s, though they held total cash reserves of six hundred dollars, and their ten-year activity in civil defense during the Cold War (which included witnessing the Atom Bomb test in Nevada).

The book concludes with a chapter about Jack Wilson’s father, E.E. (Jack) Wilson, one of the great characters of all time.
