Venable School, Lane High School

they were, of course having come from the North, they were not inculcated in the ways of the South.  And they were very liberal by standards of the day.  Give you an example, Eugene Williams constantly reminds me that my parents were the first white people to invite him and Lorraine into our homes for a social occasion.  They were frequently involved in things with Henry Mitchell in particular.  My mother was the person at Saint Paul’s Memorial Church who was working most closely with the folks at Trinity to develop the Trinity daycare program, which began in like ’65, ’66.  When Camp Faith got started up in 1967, my mother was the president of the board.  My father, though a devoted golfer, quit Farmington when Farmington refused to integrate, a decision that they had in about 1965 or so.  And so the Snook family, along with a bunch of other university people, and the Mitchells and Coach Jones and Cal Cage and a bunch of other Black leaders, educators in particular, all moved out to Keswick together.  So a lot of history of both of my parents being really involved in those kinds of things.  That’s one of the reasons why their names are on the Drewary Brown Bridge as bridge builders.
