Randy Hanes Album

Randy Hanes has been collecting material and photographs about the 300th for decades. In addition, he has lectured and written many accounts of the history of the 300th. At the 2007 reunion in Dallas (the first attended by Brad Peters and Jan Ross and organized and hosted by Randy) Brad and Jan scanned and photographed Randy's 300th Album of photographs, maps, documents and written comments. The Album is reproduced here in page form as they are in the Album. Our thanks to Randy for sharing these for the web site.
