    In the 1940 census, Melville's middle initial is reported as C, but in the Long Beach, Calififornia, City Directory, he is Melville P Gregory.  Apparently both initials are correct.  He is listed as Melville P in the directories and on the Social Security Death Index.  But his more complete Social Security records reflect two separate middle nmaes.  It is not clear if he always hd two or it was changed at som e time form one to the other.  He is Melville Clyde in 1936, then in 1942 Melville Pink.  (See below.)
