Lightle Dobbins & Lightle, old and important name in Searcy AR.

Memories!

How they come flowing back from time to time!  And the name Lightle Dobbins & Lightle has always been an important one in Searcy AR.  When I decided to obtain training regarding real estate (not to be an agent but just to learn) I was contacted by the broker at the firm to consider signing up with them as a real estate agent.  Well, I WAS flattered.  He even came to my house to make the proposal.

So after getting my license I hung it on their wall, continued teaching Art at Searcy High School, and continued learning more about the real estate business.  You know the rest.  Real estate won out and I have been a REALTOR since 1979.

This picture that I am sharing is in the 1968 Harding College Petit Jean yearbook.  It had the Lightle Dobbins and Lightle address as 401 West Arch and it showed the folks who worked there. I believe they had an insurance firm as well as real estate and this may represent insurance agents.  See how many you know!  I know three of them but I need your help on the others.  After all, 1968 was about the time I was arriving in this good city.

I just know two: both men. Julian Lightle is seated, and on the far right Deener Dobbins. The man on the left of the picture looks familiar, but I doubt if it's Carl Dodd.

Anita, thanks for the quick id of some of the folks.  On facebook I believe they have all been identified.

You are right, for a time LDL was both an insurance agency and a real estate agency. The seated man is Julian Lightle Jr.
