In homage to Kyle, I have a question about an odd thing I encountered in a book the other day.
In Glen Payne and George Younce’s autobiography of The Cathedrals, the Glen Payne section states the following:
In the spring of 1963, with hardly any warning, Earl [Weatherford] announced that he and Lily Fern were moving to California. (150)
Ok, except that in HIS part of the autobiography (it’s split into halves more less, between George and Glen), Younce says this about the same incident:
I knew the Weatherfords had left [Rex Humbard’s church] and moved back to their home in Oklahoma. (88)
So did they move back to OK or go to CA? Anybody know what gives? I’m not saying either one of them is wrong. Maybe. Maybe not. Indeed, I can imagine a scenario in which both stories are true (the Ws left Humbard and went home to regroup in OK and then decided to head further West). But it’s a curious little bit of trivia I thought I’d throw out there and see what our collective memory and wisdom could do with it.Email this Post
