Senior Moments #8: James Monteith

Senior Moments #8: James Monteith

As Thomas Wolfe said, “you can’t go home again”, and for him this is especially true.  Raised in Bushnell, NC, his homestead was flooded as part of the Fontana Dam Project.  His educational journey took him from a three-room schoolhouse to UNC Chapel Hill and on to Harvard Law School.  Mr. Monteith, in his early 80′s, is still practicing law in Charlotte.  He talked about home in this wonderful Senior Moment.
