Alice Black's Oral History
Alice Black was born February 23, 1924, in Albion, Noble County; she was the daughter of Harry Black and Bertha E. (Belt) Black of Albion. On August 24, 1944, Alice
joined the WACs and went to Fort Des Moines, Iowa, for 8 weeks of processing and training. Alice was then stationed with the WACs at Wright
Field in Dayton, Ohio. In the Spring of 1945, Alice met David Clark Glass, her future husband, who was stationed at Wright Field with the U.S.
Army Air Force. David was discharged from the AAF in July 1945 and returned to his Virginia poultry farm just 3 miles east of Scottsville, VA. Alice and
David married Alice in January 1946, and Alice had to wait a month before she was discharged from the WACs. In February 1946, Alice moved to David's farm
where Alice was still living in the Summer of 2006 when she interviewed with Scottsville Museum for our WWII oral history program. Alice and
David Glass were the parents of three children: Constance Louise Glass (1949), Clayton Brent Glass (1954), and a third child born in September 1947. David
passed away on November 25, 1982, at Martha Jefferson Hospital in Charlottesville, VA, and is buried at Scottsville Cemetery.
