Recollections of WBCCI – Fred "Pop" Riley

Dale (Pee Wee) Schwamborn

1st WBCCI International President and family friend

I found this picture of Pop and his wife Minnie and it brought to mind that this is one of the very keystones of the WBCCI. "Pop" was the Clubs first International President. He was a retired railroad engineer. He was from Arizona, he lived for awhile in Sedona and Avondale.

"Pop" was part of the constitution committee. You know what they did? They gave us the Wally Byam Caravan Club. Like most of the early Caravanners he went with Wally to Mexico in the early 50's.

He is a freind of yours, because he was a friend to the Club, Wally Byam, Helen Byam Schwamborn, and Airstream.

He's the man!

In finding this picture I see his dog, I don't remember the name of the dog, but I do remember the dog.
