    In this home movie from the A.M. Harper collection, multiple generations of family members gather in an outdoor park-like setting to visit, eat, and swim. Also included are family gatherings at home, footage from Christmas morning, a visit to the state Capitol building, and a croquet game
    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.
