Jack Dodson is best remembered for is role of Howard Sprague on the Andy Griffith Show but he was more than that. He liked camping, was a fan of boxing, Spencer Tracy movies, and he attended Carnegie Tech (Carnegie Mellon University as it’s known now).
I got a wonderful surprise back in 2006 when Scott Helmandollar wrote to me and shared a few photos his father had taken back in the mid-1950’s.
Let’s visit our Mayberry friends and learn more about Jack Dodson and Howard Sprague.
Follow me on Twitter if you use twitter. I’ve been posting Mayberry things there as another way to let folks know about The Andy Griffith Show.
