A letter from James Orr was donated to the Walton County Heritage Association. James Orr graduated from Hampden Sidney College in Virginia in June 1920. At the time he wrote the letter (November 1920) he was teaching at Palmer College, which was located in DeFuniak Springs. I have not been able to locate him in any of our records from that period and, unfortunately, we have not been able to locate the academic records for Palmer College. He would have missed being on the 1920 census here, and he is not shown in DeFuniak Springs in the 1930 census.
Any additional information about James Orr or other teachers at Palmer College would be very welcome.
