In the past 28 years he has made himself and his work known throughout Mississippi.  Considered outstandingly proficient in his profession, he has several times served as president of the Mississippi Photographers association.  During his illness recently he was appointed an honorary officer of the Southern Photographers association.  He has served several times as president of the Mississippi and Kentucky associations.

During the past years, he had become associated with real estate ventures here and at the time of his demise was owner of several pieces of business property and a good deal of suburban real estate.  Taking an active part in the business life of the city for many years he was a member of the Rotary Club.  He was a member of the Episcopal church.
