What a surprise to turn to page 40 of the fall issue and see a photo I took as a student photographer for the 1973 Yucca yearbook. Talk about a trip down memory lane. The back story on this was that Denton county was “dry” and the private club was the only option available to those who wanted to end the day with a nice cold beer without driving to another county.
We (Yucca staff) decided to do a feature story on this situation and I drew the photo assignment. A few days and a few beers later, I happily completed the work — with slightly blurry eyes and a smile on my face!
Those were the days. A special thanks to all the great faculty members, especially Smitty Kiker and Don Schol, who gave me guidance and inspiration to succeed in my photography career. I am eternally grateful.
