Jean Duaine’s father was a storyteller.
In the 1930s, while he was away earning money for their family, he wrote stories to entertain his children.
The tales centered on a family very much like the one waiting for him in Georgetown but with the last name “Whoopenhollars.” Each story ended with a cliffhanger, so his children would eagerly await his next letter.
Duain, 79, said the characters in these stories earned their names because “those (real) kids of his whooped and hollered so much.”
