Travels of Roy Butler from Indiana to Asia
Dear World Forum Researchers:
I hope that the title caught your eye. I was researching the life of my great uncle John Paul and his friend Arthur Briggs, both members of the Will Marion Cook's legendary Southern Syncopated Orchestra. I found an intriguing story of Roy Butler, a Native Son of Richmond Indiana.
I knew of the terror and hardship that African-Americans suffered in Europe during the WW II, but never connected South East Asia to the black experience.
The posted url is the story of Roy Butler, a musician from Richmond Indiana. It includes his "gigs" and great photos from his travels to Europe, South America and South East Asia.
