Samuel Davis McReynolds in Joe SteeleEdit

Congressman Sam McReynolds introduced President Joe Steele just prior to Roland Laurence South's attempt to assassinate Steele in March 1937 in Chattanooga. McReynolds proclaimed that Steele paid attention to "little" and "forgotten" people of Tennessee during his introduction.

Sam McReynolds was not related to the late Justice James McReynolds, one of the Supreme Court Four who'd been executed at the end of 1934. Reporter Charlie Sullivan made a point of checking on that.[1]
