F Mitch Roberts & Fire Trucks 1962
F. Mitch Roberts was mayor of DeRidder from 1934-1940 and 1958-1962.
photograph was taken in 1962 and my father, Chief JB Cooley wrote on the
back of this photo. "Mitch Roberts was reason for us getting these trucks".
Evidently Mr. Roberts was very instrumental in getting DeRidder the two New
Fire Engines shown in the photo.
