Local History: Mr. Houston and Mr. Lowe

This week continues a summer long series of history stories by the late Ashley Harris that were first published in 1994 and 1995. This story appeared in the July 7, 1994 issue of The Tunica Times.

The two were prominent men.  One, J.T. Lowe, was a lawyer.  The other was P.M. Houston, Secretary and Treasurer of the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta Levee Board.

The two men had been, up to that very day, “warm personal friends.”
