Dale Hardy sent me this information of him and his brother at LeTourneau in Vicksburg, Mississippi. The photos and text are courtesy of Dale Hardy of LeTourneau Technologies and R.G. LeTourneau Heritage Center. I met Dale last summer in Longview, Texas while researching the housing systems of R.G. LeTourneau at LeTourneau University.
I lived in the LeTourneau community, which was known as LeTourneau, Mississippi to us, with my parents TC and Mary Hardy and my three brothers from late 1961 to late 1963. We lived on Lakeview Drive on the north side of the boulevard. I don’t remember the house number but it was about half way down.
Falcons must have been the car to have back then; here I am in 1962 holding my squirming little brother, Mark, standing in front of our 1961 FORD Falcon. This picture was probably taken on Sunday morning before church because it looks like we were in our Sunday-go-to-meetin’ clothes.
