Henry "Hank" Hart Poett Campbell

To say the least, Henry "Hank" Hart Poett Campbell has been a busy boy in his first two weeks of life. Since his arrival at 6:50 the evening of August 7, Hank's older brother has already shown him how to drive a backhoe and fix the ranch water system. And riding a horse is next on the list, says 3-year-old Jack. Hank, the grandson of Editor in Chief Marianne Partridge, enjoys long walks around 2 a.m., and he eats as much as he can every few hours — managing to add a full pound to his original 8 pounds, 4 ounces, so far. The Indy family is overjoyed he's here!
