A Living History of Mineola. An Interview with James Dear.

Originally posted on June 27, 2011 @ 7:19 am

James Dear is 94, sharp as a tack and knows just about everything there is to know about Mineola.

In this chat, we discussed his career at the Select Theater, events of the town, local music, his work with the Meredith Foundation, gunfights, bootlegging, Bonnie & Clyde and much more.

This video is 1 1/2 hours, so watch it on your own time, but it is good stuff. Mr. Dear is not only lucid, but sharp as a tack when it comes to this town and the events of the last hundred years or so.
