LEWIS BAILEY STEPPE JR. WEB SITE
Welcome to my web site.
Student Terri Jones drew this
picture of me. The photograph of Margaret and I was taken at Nags Head on a cool
and windy spring morning.
The site came online in September 2001 as a place to show my family book.
The entire web site is still under construction and revision. I have 1150 pages
and 2775 pictures, as of Oct 11, 2014.

This must be the ultimate mode of self expression, to publish your personal
agonies on the web. (I have learned, Feb 05, 2005, that
such a site, or the content thereof, is newly called a 'blog' and that one
