My Dad’s Photos – Part 3

Here are a wide variety of news photos from my dad’s days as chief photographer of WFMY TV in Greensboro. I intentionally blurred the faces of the KKK photos, as I saw no reason to identify these people. While it was a sad part of NC history, it was news worthy none-the less. Enjoy!

    I remember your dad well. I was program director at WFMY-TV from 1950-1959, and worked closely with him in the old 16mm film days. Buddy was a great photographer and a steady personality. I am the guy in the license plate picture. Went to Wilmington, I think, that year, because they had the TV prefix on the plates, and this was a way to get some promotional mileage. Some of my best decisions were to hire Lee Kinard and to set up George Perry and Jim Tucker as The Old Rebel and Pecos Pete. I never thought Cordelia Kelly would last, but what did I know? Glad you’re following in your dad’s footsteps. I am 89, retired, of course, and living in Bowling Green, KY. Was able to get to Greensboro for the 50th anniversary of the station.

    • Hey, thanks for the comments on my dad. I doubt I’ll be the photog he was, but he started me on the path! Those were good decisions re: The Old Rebel/Pecos Pete! I was on the show a couple of times, but watched it often as a kid.

      I hope you and your family are well.
