That someone proved to be none other than Doc Sonnichsen. ” That 1938 Texas Folklore Society meeting was held at Hotel Paso del Norte. Doc recalled that Dobie appeared in full glory. Carl Hertzog remembered Dobie attired in a white suit working the crowd. For this occasion Hertzog turned out the handsomest program the Society had had to that date; it was enhanced with a sketch by Tom Lea, whose acquaintance he had made only short months earlier. ” Doc’s first book was obscurely published in 1942 at Caldwell, Idaho, by a most respectable regional publisher, the Caxton Press.
