Sheriff McTeer and Dr. Buzzard Coming Soon!

A month from now, we are all in for a treat.

Baynard Woods will be doing a presentation for us about his newly released book, Coffin Point – in County Council Chambers -- on December 14th. Woods did some of his research in the BDC. Mark your calendars now. I think this one, because of the topics – Sheriff McTeer, voodoo doctors, rootwork, spells and hexes – will be quite popular. (Aren’t you already intrigued?)

To get an idea of the wealth of materials we have on or by Ed McTeer and Dr. Buzzard, here are some "Recommended Readings" for you to consider: James Edwin McTeer and Dr. Buzzard. (You'll notice some overlap. It is hard to mention one man without referring to the other.)
