Museum the New Llano Colony

H.D. Wooley (Alternate spelling Woolley)


Family Information:  


Pre-Colony History:  

Home in Colony: In 1934 he was living at the Gila, New Mexico location.  

Job in Colony: In 1934 he received his Notary Commission and was adding fees to the oft depleted finances of the Gila location.

He sometimes wrote for the "Llano Colonist"; in April 1933 he wrote a full-page article describing the Gila unit.  

Other Info: In June 1933 colonists at Gila had their own entertainment -- ladies were furnished with chairs from Chet's room and men sat on the floor. Harold and Clyde appeared with five or six inch brim new straw hats, Mr. Wooley in high heel boots, Chet Page in a hat -- well, no disrespect to Chet or the hat, but there was every reason to believe that it was not a new hat. The performers were Mr. Wooley with his violin, Mahler with a flute, two guitars and a violin, and Chet singing.

In January 1935 Wayne Mahler and Isom Shoemaker each gave readings during the entertainment program at Gila. Also, Mr. Wooley and Mr. Mahler played a violin duet, "La Paloma".
