Biography of Willie James Roper

CCCman, Co. 3424 Dist "C",  Andalusia, AL, CO. 3474, Dist. "B", Forestry, Ft. Barrancas, FL

         My father,Willie James Roper was born Nov. 1924 in Lowndes County, Alabama. He had limited education and worked as a laborer during his short life. My dad received orientation at Andalusia, Alabama - the 3424th Co. Dist "C". Later, he was transferred to Ft. Barrancas, FL to CO.3474, Dist. "B" - Forestry (1942). I am desperately trying to locate individuals who may have known him and a photo of him. He was a member of a Black Camp and I would also be interested in persons with information on Blacks in the CCCs.
