This short home movie from the A.M. Harper collection takes a look at characteristic Gulf Coast beach and grassland habitat and some of the shore birds and waterfowl that reside or migrate through it, including the endangered Whooping Crane.
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.
