At the Age of 103, Looking Back for WPSU’s “Story Corps”
In 1936, a huge flood hit Clearfield, Pa. Ray Walker ’35, a recent graduate at the time and the founder of the Bradford Coal Company, lived nearby and rescued people who were impacted by the flood with the help of a rowboat. Now 103, Walker recently sat down to discuss those memories and others with his son, C. Alan Walker ’68g, for WPSU’s Story Corps project. The pair also talked about Ray’s career in the coal business and how he began working with coal as a student.
