Growing Up

April 19, 2012

Dorothy Turnbull was born on July 24, 1922 and grew up in New Orleans.

 My father was born in Algiers, which is across the river from New Orleans. I think people today know something about the area from Katrina. Algiers suffered, but not as much as the city proper. But long time ago he was from there.  I always used to tell people though, they said, “Oh, my, you have an interesting background!”  (laughs)  Algiers thinking of the foreign land.

She had one older brother who was two years older. Dorothy’s father was a real estate developer, but she doesn’t really remember any hardship as a child.

This photograph comes from the collection of Dorothy Turnbull Stewart.
