I met Claude Shrader at a mutual friend's party. After introductions he asked what I do. I told him I collect stories and asked him if he was familiar with Engine 11 in Philadelphia. He laughed and said his father was a fireman who was stationed at Engine 11. I gave him my card and on it is a photo of Joe Louis visiting the Engine 11 firehouse. There's a young boy at the bottom of the photo and most people ask if I'm the boy in the photo. When Claude saw the card he asked me if I knew who the boy in the photo was, I said no. He said, "That's me."
