Tom Henderson

I am writing a piece on Tom Henderson for the Caswell County Historical Association website.

Tom Henderson, son of Archibald Erskine ("Baldy") Henderson, was a newspaper person, writer, raconteur, and quite a unique character. He started a newspaper at the age of 13 (in 1895) and seemed to know all that was going on in Caswell County and surrounding areas his entire lifetime.

Attached is the cover of a little pamphlet he published in 1942. It claims to be "Book One." However, I have been unable to find subsequent volumes.

I would appreciate anything you are able to provide on Tom Henderson, his family, and his writings. A photograph of him would be a real plus.

Thanks and best regards.
