A. M. Harper, African Safari Part II

Born in Yorktown, Texas in 1901, Albert Morris “A.M.” Harper was a longtime resident of Alice where he owned and operated a successful oil field trucking company. Financial success followed from the early boom in the Texas oil industry and enabled Harper to enjoy a recreational home in Port Aransas and many adventurous pursuits, including safari expeditions in Africa and Alaska. This home movie shot during one of Harper’s African safaris shows life in the well-appointed hunting camps, native animals on the savanna, and hunters posing with their “trophy” kills.
