Alec Williams interviewed Houston and Lois Eggleston in their home on July 17, 1975. The interview begins with Houston, but Lois was not introduced until later in the interview so there are some points of confusion as her voice can be heard in the background (until the introduction), as well as time periods where all three are talking and it is difficult to understand what is being said. Albert Houston Eggleston was born in 1902 in Mustang, Texas. His family moved to Indian Territory when he...
