Interview with Frederica McDuffie
QUESTION 25
MADISON DAVIS LACY:

When did you hear that Arthur had died?

FREDERICA MCDUFFIE:

I heard he had died--no, what happened was that--when Arthur, Arthur, start over. I heard when he died the late, the early part of that evening. The hospital had called me, and asked me to come in, and, matter of fact, they asked all the family to come in, and as I arrived at the hospital, he was slowly deteriorating. He hadn't died exactly then, but he was slowly deteriorating. The nurse asked me, did I want to go in to see him, and I told her, "No." I left the hospital and drove back home, the hospital called me within an hour and a half and pronounced him dead, about twelve that afternoon.
