Norman Dillman

interviewed 29 September 1977
Norman Dillman (born 1914) was a long-time resident of Waveland who speaks at length in this interview of his hometown during the 1930s when it was an important rail and logging town. He has especially vivid memories of the Waveland bank robbery in 1932 ("I was very impressed over one of the robber's markmanship because he stood in one place and shot all the street lights out").
