Jamaicans Thankful For Good Treatment in DeKalb
From the October 10, 2018, MidWeek "Looking Back."
1943, 75 Years Ago.
"A most interesting letter has been received by the California Packing Corporation from one of the Jamaicans employed at Station Three of the DeKalb division. The letter was written by Telamon Taylor on behalf of the group of Jamaicans who worked at the station.
"For the past several weeks they have been working for the canning corporation helping to pack the vital food crops. The appreciation of this group is expressed for the fine treatment they received and the letter states that they will have memories that they will never forget."
