Quick update on Monday’s ‘Yesterday’ photo

A little bit more information has come in related to Monday’s “Yesterday” photo on page 2A and reprinted in Tuesday’s edition on page 3A.

Greg Shuler says David Shuler Sr., his grandfather and chief of the Salisbury Police Department from 1948-75, is standing in the front row of men, second from the left.

“I’m proud to note that his name is on the Salisbury Police Department today,” Greg Shuler said.

Brian Whitley Corriher reports that the fourth man from the right in the first row of men is his late grandfather, Lt. John Adam Whitley, a detective who was “the first fingerprint man in North Carolina.”

In this group photograph of the Salisbury Police Department from 1955, Whitley is wearing a suit and looking away from the camera, Corriher says.

Susan Tutterow Morgan says her father, the late B.P. Tutterow, is in the next to last row, third in from the right.

Carol Miller says her father, Ragland C. Kirchin, is fifth in from the right on the first row behind the four policewomen. Miller adds that Rueben Fisher is next to her father on the left.

“Daddy’s great friend Detective Poss Kesler is third from the right on that same row,” Miller says. “I’m not positive, but I think that is Detective Rickard at the end of that row.”
