|Recordings||Interview with Loretta Jean Webber.|
I discovered a 2003 newsletter from the Johnson C. Smith University website where I read an entry in which a Loretta and Spurgeon Webber discussed Alonzo Thomas Jr. It really seems that by GrandDad made an impact on Jean. I called Spurgeon Webber's Dental Office about a week ago. Jean contacted me back. I thought Spurgeon was a student as well. Jean says her husband didn't attend his class. Jean spends some time with us to talk about my grandfather, Thomas Alonzo LaSaine Jr.
I hope you enjoy this interview.
