By: Oxendine, Linda
Dr. Linda Oxendine mentions in this essay that Adolph Dial “would take every opportunity to share information about the Lumbees, whether in a formal setting or in general conversation.” I am grateful that he was generous with his time and expertise when I was writing my book, The Lumbee Indians: An Annotated Bibliography (1994). He met with me numerous times—answering questions, helping me locate sources, showing me memorabilia and family photographs, and always communicating his support of my work. I was honored that he wrote the foreword to my book.
