[Douglas Clark with "Junebug" Wade Hampton Clark, Jr.]

Date: 1946~
Creator: Clark, Joe
Description: Douglas Clark with his father "Junebug" Wade Hampton Clark, Jr on the steps of a brick home owned by Wade Hampton Clark Sr. Narrative by Junebug Clark: The Junebug in this photo is Joe's youngest brother. He ran a trucking company called Clark/Sharp based in the Cumberland Gap area. My father, Joe, always admired his brother Junebug because he had a college degree and business sense. My dad's formal education ended in the fifth grade when the school house burned down. Cousin Douglas, as of today in 2014, still owns the family farm in Cumberland Gap, but lives in Arlington, Virginia. He graduated from Lincoln Memorial University and is a lobbyist for the tobacco industry. Doug is about four years older than me so I'm guessing this photo was shot in 1946. It was taken on the front steps of my grandfather's home in Cumberland Gap. The house was built by my father Joe. He was a carpenter before becoming a night watchman and then a photographer. This information is provided by me, the legal Junebug named after my Uncle Junebug.
