A Lawyer, a Banker and Tree Farmer

From the Don Jackson Collection -- LLF Library

Hugh V. Wall was a lawyer and a banker, and, at one point in his life, ran for Congress, according to information on file at the Ole Miss archives. If this photograph is any indication, he evidently was a tree farmer/conservationist as well.

Wall died in 1965, and his daughter, Valerie Wall Campbell, lead the State Bank as a director and major stockholder for more than 40 years, until her death in 2009 -- this, according to Sylvia Campbell Hall, daughter of  Jewel and Valerie Wall Campbell.

Just who is pictured here is awaiting annotation from Sylvia or others who may be familiar with this photograph.  I will update as soon as I am able.
