Mr. A.M. Pounds and his 90th Birthday

Arlie M. Pounds, a former Tennessee Room assistant, celebrated his 90th birthday on January 25, 2012, with a small ceremony hosted at the Jackson-Madison County Library. Although he is no longer with us, Mr. Pounds is remembered not only for his contributions to the Tennessee Room, but also for his participation in Dixie League baseball and his time served as a veteran of World War 2. A truck and DUKW driver, his service took him across North Africa, Italy, and Southern France.
