- Paula and Lisa,
Thank you for finding this information.
I believe this may be the same person who was the teacher pictured in
the class of 1925-26 at Winterville High School.
I found a Cecil Arline Tucker in Pitt Chronicles Vol. II and the
dates match this death certificate.
The article says he owned and operated the City Market on Dickinson
Avenue in Greenville from 1926 to 1953.
However, the article does not mention whether he ever taught school.
It does list his children, one of whom appears to be living and
contributed to the article which was written by Roger Kammerer, so I
will contact them.

- Dear Dani,
That must have been so weird--the "under the desk
I remember that here in Richmond, Virginia the
craze was bomb shelters. Many people invested in them,
building a basement shelter or placing one in the
yard. Bill Kittrell noted in one of his e-mails when a
member inquired about a property he had purchased that
there might be an underground bomb shelter on it.
Mama figured that a bomb shelter only ensured that
one would die of the fall-out later if he escaped the
Therefore, she did not even consider building one.
