DescriptionPictures of Alex Haley in the United States Coast Guard where he served for 20 years. Haley enlisted in 1939, and started getting the writing bug; he would write love letters for his fellow shipmates to their girlfriends and received many rejection letters from various magazine publishers before his first story was bought. Haley was the first member of the U.S. Coast Guard with a Journalist designation. In 1999 the U.S. Coast Guard honored Haley by naming a Coast Guard Cutter after him. Dimensions: 7"x 9", color: black and white, date: circa 1939-1959. From www.kintehaley.org.
