Article: Louisville Courier Journal 1901

John Reynolds WWI Draft Registration Description Short, Medium Build, Blue Eyes, Dark Hair age 38 Years.
One article from the Louisville Courier in 1901 when John Harvey Reynolds was 21 years of age (he had been involved in a constant battle for quite some time with the much larger bully, William S Luntz "Wright". Luntz took his mother's last name of Wright; and it came to a head as described in Noah Reynolds journal of the "History of Feuds".) The journalist from the Louisville Courier Journal described John Reynolds this way: He is unusually handsome, talks splendidly, and like Morgan Reynolds, John Reynolds was a school teacher.
