Albany Herald Pictures & Article of Biscuit Eater

Tommy Pattison ('54), writes, "My mother took me to the parade for the movie but I don't really remember it.  I was 4 years old.  I don't recognize anyone in the picture except for Mrs. Lackland."

Lillian Lackland ('52) writes: I used to have the original picture, but don't know who has it now (maybe my brother, Bill Lackland)Anyway, I do remember a few of the names of folks in it.  Some of the names I remember are: (kneeling on right side of  coffee table) Lillian Lackland, and Billy Lee sitting directly  behind the table. Scattered throughout the picture are Jo Marks, Pat Chandler Hannah, Perry Mobley, Nancy Hodges Calloway, Cantey Pace (brother or JuJu and Gladys who died about 3rd or 4th grade, I think), Chan Flock, Bernice__, and one of the Haley boys, I think.
