Echoes of the Great Depression
by Nathaniel L. Self      


I thank all my brothers and sisters for their memories and input relative to these stories, especially Orlane and Melton who are close to my age. A big thanks goes to my wife, Louise James Self, for her many contributions. Several of my friends who lived in or around Dora all their lives provided valuable background information to me for this book. I thank them, especially W. G. Campbell, Travis and Margaret Gann, and Newman Davis.

My special thanks goes to all those who contributed to preparing the Dora Centennial 1886-1986, Scrapbook of Memories and to Norma McKittrick for helping me polish my writing and prepare the text for printing.
