Note: It’s confession time. After last week’s Meteor had already gone to print, I suddenly thought, “I should check what C.C. Springfield’s age was in 1955, when the Heath horse photo was taken.” I did and realized that he was only 16. I don’t think the Meteor then would have credited him with the photo. I asked his daughter, Jennifer, if he did photography, and she replied that he did not but his father did. “Our” local C.C. carried the same name as his father, Calvert Collier Springfield, (1909-1969) in Huntsville. Many local photos from the mid-20th century are credited to him. I’m sure this isn’t the first mistake my Musings have included, and I doubt it will be my last. more
