Searcy AR Legion Hut historic photo meeting

A meeting at Searcy AR Legion Hut

Look at this historic photo that was loaned to me by the White County Historical Society for this blog.  They challenged me to name the people shown in the picture.  I contacted a few Searcy Sleuths and can identify all except the young man in the center and we also could not find the purpose of the meeting.  Perhaps someone out there can name him.

Notice the huge stones that make up the Legion Hut.  Note the curve for the fireplace.  That took some skill from the rock experts.

Now the ones in the picture are, standing left to right, Cecil Tedder, Daryl Hickman, Herb Bacon and Jim Wilbourn.  Seated from left to right, Mac Angel, Mabel Whitehurst, Nelson James, the one we don't know, Anamieca Carmichael, Kathleen Blakely and Mary Formby.  If I spelled names wrong, tell me.  If you know the purpose of the meeting or the man in the middle, tell me!!

Catherine, so this is Mac Angel and not Carthel Angel?  Thanks for the input!

I can imagine that the historic photos you post are valued by those in your local area, Barbara.  I belong to Sacramento History Group on Facebook.  I know I enjoy old photos often posted there.

Good morning Barbara. I really enjoy your old pictures. I hope someone can identify the man in the middle.

Sheila, thank you.  One of our sleuths said it was probably someone from somewhere trying to sell something to the group.  I like that idea.  Otherwise, Searcy would recognize him!

Barbara, my anonymous source believes the unidentified man in the middle was from some state organization - not from Searcy - & was helping the Searcy Chamber of Commerce put a book together with information about Searcy for the state chamber. My source was involved in the project but doesn’t remember this meeting & cannot ID the person.

Lee, I think that source was right.  It makes sense because they are looking through some items.  Thanks for helping with our blog.
