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!!
