Dale Harris, the Captain
The same skills that made Dale Harris the Director of Music, indispensable to several of Dallas's important Episcopal congregations, also made him able to build a real estate portfolio with little cash in hand. He haggled interest rates, collected delinquent rents, and argued with inspectors as Alexander prospected purchases and renovated acquisitions. The two were affectionately referred to as "value-investors". The dynamics of their relationship are a key ingredient in River Queens: Saucy boat, stout mates, spotted dog, America.
