FRED LYON FOUNDER OF KATY RAILROAD HISTORICAL SOCIETY
"Here are a couple of small world stories. I joined the Katy RR Historical Society & just a couple of days after our lunch [in Jeff City, see post] I got my first newsletter. I was very surprised that Fred Lyon was the founder of the Society & very active in it. It has been so long since college [no kidding Alan] but when I saw Fred's picture & read he grew up in Sedalia, I remembered something. Fred & my mother's only brother, H. W. Harris, not only graduated from Smith Cotton High School the same year, but were very close & best friends. In the late 1960s "H.W." came over to Central Methodist University & Fred, H.W. and I had lunch at the Student Union. How about that for a small world story." This is a timely story, as this year is the 20th anniversary of the Katy Trail, and of course, just last year Maxine Lyons Henty was in our midst at the KHS Athletic HOF induction [see earlier post on this]. THANKS Alan for sharing this - read the article about Fred here.
