Who's Who – Born June 16, 1926 in Fairfield, the Williamson's were blessed with a little boy who they later called LaClaire (that isn't all of his name but it's all he will let us print). He has grown somewhat since that eventful day, since he is now 6 feet tall and weighs 170 pounds. LaClaire's, we might say, second and almost only love is the saxophone. He has been in the band four years, playing only tenor saxophone. He is band reporter for the Eagles Tales staff. When asked what he would like to be he said with much determination that he wanted to become a band director. Spencer Tracy and Ann Southern are his favorites in movieland. Hamburgers are his favorite food and collecting photos is his hobby. After graduation he is planning on entering SMU this fall. LaClaire has a very friendly disposition and is well liked by everyone.
