This picture was made of Sgt. Alvin C. York on Dec. 7th 1941, the day the Japanese bombed Pearl
Harbor in Hawaii. This photo and information was submitted by Doyle Jones of
Jamestown Tn. Doyle writes " I was in a local cafe on this Sunday evening Dec. 7th 1941. Claude Reagan
came into the cafe and said he had just heard by radio that Japan had bombed Pearl Harbor.
Later that evening I went to York Institute where Sgt. York was making a live broadcast from the York Institute
auditorium called Tennessee Americans over radio station WNOX in Knoxville Tn. Kelly Brooks quartet which
included his wife Rose, Albert Walker and Gaskel Warren. Gladys Franklin played the piano."This information
as remembered by Doyle Jones of Jamestown Tn.
