Paul Thomas, historian

Almost 60 years ago, at the Elkhart High pep session, I vividly recall seeing a young man run across the gym floor, jump into the air and come down in one piece. When I asked a teacher who that might be, he responded, “why that’s Paul Thomas. He was a cheerleader.” As the years have passed, I found out that he was now a business man with a store on Main Street. He was a close friend of Bill Miller who owned the city movie theaters.
