Description

Herbert David Warner (left) and Frank Moody at the unveiling of color portraits of Mr. and Mrs. Warner at the Central Building of the YMCA on November 1, 1967.

Color portraits of the couple by Alphaeus Philemon Cole, 1876-1988, a noted New York artist, were unveiled in the lobby of the Central YMCA.

Frank Moody made a speech relating the years of service and the generous donations by both Warners and expressed regret that Mrs. Warner was unable to attend due to poor health. In addition to Mr. Warner other members of the family at the ceremonies were Mildred Van Zele, granddaughter, and Jack Warner, son.

Warner spoke briefly for himself and his wife and said that they were thankful they were able to do the things they had for the community to show their appreciation of the good life shared in Tuscaloosa. He recalled the sadness they experienced when a teen-age son died in a tragic accident while on a YMCA outing and indicated this led to the donation of funds in memorial to him.
