Mrs. Brown has given these books to be sold with the stipulation that all monies go into the treasury. Soft covers are $3.00 and hardbacks are $5.00. plus 50¢ for postage and handling, if mailed. These books will be for sale at the next meeting or (to be sure of obtaining a copy) telephone the Secretary (334-4807) or write Box 565. Point Lookout, MO. 65726.
Mr. Brown was a native of Ozark County; was educated in Ozark and Douglas Counties; taught school in Ozark County; became a lawyer in 1922 after apprenticing in the law office of Judge Stewart of Ava; and, was practicing law in Sedalia at the time of his death on January 31,1971.
Secretarys note: This book is full of history of the Ozark, Douglas and Christian County area, with many a chuckle tucked in; names several long-time area families; and lots of pictures. Very interesting non-fiction written by the man who lived it.
