AFRO-AMERICAN (Baltimore) - July 2, 1938

The Three Peppers—who individually, left to right, are: Roy Branker, piano; Bob Bell, guitar; and Walter Williams, bass. The trio has just closed a ten-month run at the famous Hickory House on Fifty-Second Street and is now working at a summer resort in Forrenton, Conn. From there, the boys will go to Saratoga, and then go back to the Hickory House.
