Mysteries solved!

Tami Styer and Jeff Lineberger recognized the employees in photo 207 as B.B. Parker (left) and Thomas L. Perkins. Duke Energy archivists believe it was taken at the beginning of construction of the Keowee-Toxaway site in South Carolina. At the time, Lineberger said he believes Parker was Duke Power Executive Vice President and Perkins was Duke Power Chairman of the Board.
