Birthday Wishes

Howard M. Evans, Sr., early 1930s.

Before this day is gone, daughterofthedelta remembers Howard M. Evans, Sr. on his 117th birthday. Tricia and I walked through his Strong Avenue bungalow today, almost ninety years after he built it, and his pride in the place that he provided for his family is still evident. So, Granddad, Happy Birthday from all of us who wish we had known you. And thanks for all you gave us.

Hello....I'm in possession of a priceless collection of memoirs and memorabilia left by my mother, Sara Evans Criss. She was a native and lifelong (88 years!) devotee of our small town, who covered this peculiar and volatile corner of the world for 30 years as the Memphis Commercial Appeal's Greenwood bureau chief, a job that started out with debutantes and high school football and wound up spang in the midst of one of the twentieth century's most enduring social upheavals. This blog is dedicated to her memory and the legacy she left behind, both for her family and her community.
