I suspect that part about his being born in Scotland is incorrect. He probably told people that though.There is no record of any Lee Douglas coming through Ellis Island, and he had no accent at all.
He was a Circus Musician for years.The old Wallace and Clark Circus used to come to Cave Junction, and all of the musicians knew him.He also used to play trombone at the outdoor dances on Saturday nights.
Lee was one of my several step-fathers.He had so many stories, you could never tell what was true and what wasn't.He was a VERY strange man.He refused to sleep in our house, because he maintained that Genies would murder him if he ever slept anywhere but in his own trailer.He had a pet cougar, and a bear.
He was not at all comfortable with kids.He used to give my sister, brother and me $5-10 (and this was in 1951, when that was a LOT of money for a kid), just to get rid of us.Thanks to his money, we had one heck of a 4th of July that year!
I didn't know that he had been in the Army.I'll try to get his military record.
