Parker, who knew the Carnegie's well and testified for the defense in the famous Sherman antitrust action against Andrew Carnegie in 1913. Mr. Parker also knew Winston Churchill well (In fact, Churchill gifted him an elaborate cigar humidor box made from sterling silver with a carved jadeite dragon handle (Which I have seen...Wow!). The family has a photo of Edward Parker playing badminton with Churchill (wearing Bermuda-style shorts, no less!) , circa WWII era. Winston Churchill visited Parker several times during World War II, regarding production of steel for the war industry for Great Britain.
