Eb Jenkins 
Square Dance Caller
 
ID: 2118

SIO's Article: THERE'S A GREAT DEAL of truth in the statement "If you want to get a job done — call on a busy man." Eb Jenkins of Washington, D.C. is just about the busiest man we know. His activities include work with the youth of the area plus innumerable church, school and recreational assignments. Eb is looked to as a stabilizing influence in one of the country's most active areas. Callers turn naturally to him for leadership. "When there's a problem, we talk it over with Eb." Eb and Mary, for he and his wife are a wonderfully co-ordinated team. Coming from a musical family, it seemed natural that Eb would turn to square dancing to add fun to local Grange and church parties. He teamed up with Ely Renn for the famous Eb 'n' Ely calling team which functioned for many years. Eb helped to organize the National Capital Area Square Dance Leaders and was its first president. The thousands of beginners whom Eb has introduced to square dancing in his vast basement and elsewhere are particularly fortunate in that their initial contact was one who represented all that is good in square dancing. For all of these things and many more, we take great pride in dedicating this last issue of 1961 and its cover to Eb Jenkins.
