Of Interest: Most people called him “Bill.”
His elementary school education was in a one room school, which was unusual even at that time. During his college years he worked in the office of J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the FBI, and attended school at night.
Raised on a Maryland tobacco farm, Bill always retained his love of growing things. He would spend many hours planting vegetable gardens, trees, or working in the yard with flowers, shrubs, etc.
Each fall he looked forward to the opening of hunting season when he went hunting on the home farm with the tenant farmers. Their nickname for him was “Uncle Sam.”
Bill was very proud of his two sons, ages 5 and 9; his wish for a red-headed daughter was realized only after his death.
