Some of you are aware that Ralph McCord (SLHS '40) died recently. Here's an obituary and a tribute from Austin College in Sherman, where he coached for many years.
His niece Sue Mitchell let me copy a video of home movies shot by Ralph's brother-in-law George Andre. I'm very grateful for this video. They are the earliest film of Sugar Land I have seen.
This clip records a visit Ralph made during 1942 or '43 while on leave from the US Navy. The McCords lived on 2nd Street, but I'm not sure if all of this was filmed there. Some may have been filmed on other streets on The Hill. I'll need to do more checking. Other residents of The Hill make brief appearances.
