I have found Barney Baley in the ALBA biographies:
Barney Baley's ALBA Biography

confirm that he did.
As part of Barney Baley's obituary printed in the Volunteer, 2001
The Volunteer Newsletter, 2001. Barney Baley's Obituary Page 21
there is one of his poem's reproduced called ALBAREZ THANKSGIVING, -1937 which begins
