Loblolly, v24 n1 Win 1996
This issue of "Loblolly Magazine" is dedicated to Sybil Scott, born in 1910 and still going at the age of 85. She shares some interesting tales of what it was like growing up in the '10's and '20's in Texas, including her school years. She remembers, very vividly, her childhood and teenage years in East Texas. Among the many interesting stories she tells is what school was like and how she got places. There also are interviews with five men involved with baseball, including: (1) Ron Gideon, manager in the New York Mets farm system; (2) Bill Terry, avid baseball card collector; (3) Tim Harkrider, baseball player for the California Angels; (4) Robert Ellis, Minor League baseball player; and (5) Chester Studdard, retired veterinarian and baseball player.
