Richard Halliburton

Richard Halliburton was presumed dead after this date in 1939, a tragic loss. The West Tennessee native, who grew up in Memphis, was an adventure traveler and author. The Memphis Commercial Appeal has a recent article on Halliburton. His travel narratives have been favorites of ours since we discovered them when the kids were quite young. Finding out how he died was traumatic.
