Collection Description

Historical Note

William (1919-1991), Clarence Arnold (1925-1983), and James Ernest "Jim" (1927-2014) were the sons of Homer Clarence (1894-1930) and Annie Lois Arnold De La Perriere (1893-1971) of Hoschton and Winder, Georgia. Arnold, a coach at Athens High School (Athens, Ga.), married Frances Dennis Jenkins of Eatonton, Georgia. Jim served as a hospital corpsman at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base (Cuba) in 1947, graduated from the University of Georgia where he was a member of SAE fraternity, and was later a realtor in Athens, Georgia.
