Lawyer Durham responds to critic of his memory of childhood

More on the Controversy of the Week: Did child prodigy Hunter Durham, at 9 years of age, ride the Greyhound alone to Louisville? Having lived in that time and witnessed the exploits of young Durham, one of the finest Baptist of the age. I believe him. There should be a Chautuaqua lecture, "An evening with Hunter Durham," when he recalls a Golden Era in Columbia, the late 1940's to early 1960's." - a bonus talk Columbia Rotarians often hear. He's their leader. - ED WAGGENER

Hunter Durham writes to Phyllis Gilpin Yaglowski:
Phyllis. Don't you remember that I stayed with your grandpatents for weeks at a time from that age. Lol! - Hunter Durham
