AAFA Letters
James P. Alford, AAFA #0115

Jim's Members Page

Jim joined our Alford effort later than many and faded away sooner but in between his arrival in 1988 and his dropping from site about 1994 he wrote enough to fill a large 3-ring binder. In addition to writing to Gil Alford he was also in frequent touch with the late Captain Lodwick Alford, and other interested members. He also authored a number of articles for the quarterly. Having never heard of any of us Jim first wrote to Julius M. Pooley Alford, our AAFA treasurer in McComb, MS who had run some personal notice in a Dallas paper. In those days Pooley sent all his correspondence to Gil for reply to the sender.

Watch here for more of his letters and watch the updates page for announcements of his other material as it is posted to the site.
