Milton Masters

I recently purchased this 1912 postcard of Milton Masters. It grabbed my attention because Milton Masters once owned this hollow. He bought it as part of a rugged 300-acre parcel in 1927, land that became well known locally as the Masters Farm. He lived in the hollow for many years, building two houses (the first one burned down) and his barn here. I do not know what year he left Arkansas, but my understanding is that he continued to own the farm until his death in Ilinois in 1982.

The postcard shows Milton Wright Masters at the age of 15 in October 1912. This must have been a very significant year in his life as his father, George Washington Masters, had just died in August.
