  1. Here’s a photo link that ran in Time Magazine’s 1971 Year in Pictures of Dad standing in front of “The House of the Covenant” on Gilbert Street in Dallas.

  2. I was 17 years old when i met Gene Leggett, I wasn’t really a run away but i did not like being home, i stayed off and on in the house on Gilbert during the summer of 1971, Gene was very kind, Sweet and Funny; i am now 62 and i have many so many fond memories of Gene and all the Gay exploits of that summer.
