Yesterday’s news is Dallas man’s current occupation | Dallas Morning News | News for Dallas, Texas | Breaking News for Dallas-Fort Worth | Dallas Morning News

Here is a guy in Dallas that makes about $12,000 a year selling old newspaper clippings and phone books, W.K. Jeffus actually makes a modest living by doing this and it goes to show you can make a little off just about anything.

Mr. Jeffus is stocky and speaks with a broadcaster’s diction. He’s tightly wound but seems at peace at that tension.

One thing riles him – the tendency in Dallas to discard.

“Dallas has this thing about history. They hate it,” he said. “They’re tearing everything down.”

In particular, the demolition of old homes for new ones chips at Mr. Jeffus’ heart, since he’s sure that attics’ worth of valuable, Dallas-related papers get hauled to the dump.

Now this is a guy I can relate to he loves history and preserving the past.
