About My Library
Began in 1976 with a book ("Down the Fairway" by O.B.Keeler and Bobby Jones) purchased at a flea market; Owned collection focuses on varied baseball subjects, college football, golf, U.S. history and progressivism, Christian spiritual development, American Civil War/Reconstruction/New South and the history of the Georgia sea islands; Substantial number of cataloged books have been borrowed from the Transylvania County Library, a gem for a county with only 36,000 people, where I'm an original member of the unique Wonderful Wednesday book discussion group . . . My member gallery here features images representative of my published SABR biographies and Games Project accounts (accessible at the Homepage link below), with additional images of other miscellaneous subject areas in which I enjoy reading and researching.
