Biographical / Historical

The Walk and Talk Club was an association of retired businessmen founded by W. E. Stanley. Stanley was superintendent of the Public Welfare Department of Durham County through June 1961. Upon his retirement, he met with thirteen other retirees and formally organized the Walk and Talk Club on July 6, 1961. Stanley’s aim was to continue his fellowship during retirement and so organized a group for active retirees to share their life experiences. The group quickly increased in size and met monthly at the King’s Daughters Home; it disbanded in 1994.
