I was born at Logan General Hospital in 1949. At that time and until about 1951, my parents and I lived in an apartment located in the Capital movie theater building. That is why you see pictures of me playing on a rooftop. That is the rooftop of the Capital theater building. I even had a swing up there. I could have the name of the movie theater incorrect, but my mother thinks that was the name. I know there were 2 movie theaters in Logan at the time. I’m pretty sure our building was just down the street from the Aracoma Masonic Lodge location today.
From 1949 to 1951, my parents, John and Thelma Haslam were co-owners of the Vogue Dress Shop. That business venture did not go well, and so after that we re-located to the suburbs of Washington, D.C. My parents lived for over 50 years in Vienna, VA.
Our neighbor who played with me was Toni McNeely.
