Biographical Note

Arlene Youngblood was born in England to Christine Ambrosine (Gallimore) Youngblood and Alvin Lee Youngblood, Sr., while Alvin Lee was in the United States Air Force. As a member of a military family, Youngblood moved around as a youth but attended both elementary school and her last two years of high school in Austin, Texas. Encouraged by her family and local East Austin mentors, Youngblood has been involved in community outreach since her teen years in East Austin. Her interest in preserving the history of her family and that of the East Austin community has resulted in her consistently providing materials for inclusion in the Austin History Center's collections.
