This home movie from the A.M. Harper collection contains footage from various fishing expeditions along the Texas Gulf Coast, including a prize sailfish catch at the 19th Annual Texas International Fishing Tournament in Port Isabel.
Born in Yorktown, Texas in 1901, Albert Morris “A.M.” Harper was a longtime resident of Alice where he owned and operated a successful oil field trucking company.  Financial success followed from the early boom in the Texas oil industry and enabled Harper to enjoy a recreational home in Port Aransas and many adventurous pursuits, including safari expeditions in Africa and Alaska.
