QUESTION 15
INTERVIEWER:

DID HE HAVE BIG HANDS?

Linda Brown Smith:

Not extremely big hands, no I remember my father being, what we called him, the Joe Louis type, in fact, he did play in the, box in the golden gloves, and he did win the championship here on the local level. We had a picture of him in his boxing gloves, and uh the picture did remind us of his idol, Joe Louis, because he had that type of build, and that type of stance, and we called him our Joe Louis.
