David Houston memories: 1963|
While preparing for last week's memorial for David Houston, Dena and Franklin were looking through old papers and came across this article.
David was president in 1963 (when this article was published). He was president again in 1968 - with Dena as vice-president.
David also signed the only AIFD constitution on February 9th, 1962.
Here is the text of the article. Enjoy:
