I just heard an interesting story about the Alligator Man from Elemendorf. My Aunt Clare called from Georgia. She is my age, 82, and my only surviving aunt. When we get on the phone we talk mostly about the old days. Her memory is even better than mine. While we were reminiscing, for some reason she asked if I knew where Elmendorf was. When I told her I did, she began to tell me a story she remembered that happened around 1936 or ’37.  . . .
