The 1975 version of this book was titled simply POP. Fifteen copies were Xeroxed and bound, and distributed among immediate family members. Included in it were 111 stories and 20 drawings. This expanded 2005 version adds four stories and seven drawings, and also includes 34 photographs, taken mostly between 1929 and 1953. Some stories have been expanded, others modified slightly; one poem was removed for modification, and use in a different publication. The current volume has been created because several members of my extended family have requested copies of POP. Pop was Archie Dale Alexander, an Illinois farmer, and my father. He was born November 23, 1902, on a farm north of White Heath, Illinois, in Piatt County, Sangamon Township. My mother, Katharine Heath Alexander, was born and raised in the same township, only a mile and half away, just south of White Heath. After school they took up farming, moving in February of 1929 to the farm north of White Heath where I was born 9 months later, and remaining there until Pop died on June 10, 1953. Twenty-two years after Pop's death Mom asked me to write these stories, mainly for her grandchildren, none of whom was born soon enough to know Pop, Her request seemed to be just the right stimulus to release the flood of memories that follows.
