This is a scan of a photocopy of a newspaper photo. Probably 1958 or '59. I'm standing in the back of a Red Arrow freight truck. Below and in front of me are Junior Hendricks, the driver, W. L. Fulwiler, manager of the J. C. Penney store where we're unloading, and Thedford Rhodes, the stock room manager. The boxes contain 300 women's coats for the annual "J. C. Penney Coat Caravan." Thed's nephew, Ray Rhodes, who's not in the picture of course, went on to become an NFL star player and later a coach. Posted by Picasa

Ray Rhodes wasn't Thedford's nephew that's his son.

Ray Rhodes is the nephew of Zeke Rhodes. Thedford was his father.
