Description:

Oral history. Two interviews conducted on August 23 and October 30, 1974 with Mr. Joe Reyer at his home in Poplarville, Mississippi. Reyer was born in 1893 in the Pearl River County, Mississippi. He attended an agricultural high school, now Pearl River College. During his working life Reyer farmed, built a few houses, worked on road construction, and lumbered. He drove teams of Oxen hauling lumber from isolated sawmills to the town of Poplarville. In 1929, Reyer married his first wife, Miss Edna Varnado, whose mother was former Governor Theodore G. Bilbo's sister. He touches upon race relations in the Pearl River County-Poplarville area.
