In the Nov. 10, 1965 edition of the Caymanian Weekly, a predecessor of the Cayman Compass, Brac reporter Lilian Ritch wrote:
“Vacationing at home after absence of many years have been Mr. Moody Ryan of Spot Bay, brother of Mrs. Lee Jervis of Bamboo Bay, and Mr. Alfred Ryan son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Ryan of Stake Bay, with his wife, Audrey, and daughters Shelley and Terrie.
“The party have been the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Lee Jervis. Mr. Moody Ryan, an engineer at sea, was making his second visit in 24 years. He has been resident first in England and now in the United States of America, the Fred Ryans are from Port Arthur, Texas.
“They are all thrilled with the tremendous improvements they see, the nice homes, a road improved from what it was, but transportation, Fred said that when he touched down at the airport his heart welled up with joy to realise that Cayman Brac has gone forward that much.”
