Dock Boggs circa 1927 After trying on a few occasions to find out more about Moran Lee "Dock" Boggs via the Internet, I finally decided to create a Dock Boggs Information Clearinghouse of sorts, which desperately attempts to connect you to all things Dock Boggs. All information on Long Time Coming: Dock Boggs is solely for educational purposes; all copyrights remain the property of those who have registered the material. To have any offending material removed, please contact me. I am always accepting new information in any form to include on this site that isn't already available here.

About Long Time Coming

My vision of the future for Long Time Coming was is various websites devoted to their specific items of interest, ranging all across the spectrum. Obviously, each specific item must grab my attention, or else it wouldn't be here in the first place. As for now, I'm envisioning more Long Time Coming sites devoted to other historical and musical interests. All in all, they will be a terrible conglomerate of things unrelated. There will be no new longtimecoming sites until until vast amounts of free time materialize.
