To Me He Was Grandaddy

The picture above was likely the last picture of my grandfather, the former and last Imperial Wizard of the original national Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, Inc. with me shortly before his sudden death on January 11, 1950, at the age of 53.  I am so grateful to have found these few pictures.  He was many things to many people, but he was my Grandfather.  I loved him long before I ever knew of his past, and I love him today.  My grandmother and mother moved often after his death, yet Nannie managed to safely keep things that mattered most.  This picture was one such item.
