Noel Baldwin was well into his 40s when he quit his job as a mail clerk and turned his Temple City chicken farm into a housing tract. "I'll never forget the day my dad walked out into our front yard, where we actually grew sweet potatoes," said son Alfred E. Baldwin, now 50. "He took some white chalk and drew a square area, then he handed me and my brother two shovels and said, 'Start digging.' "And that's where we built our first house. It took about a year."
