      That is a great story!  I was able to use the copy machine there to make a few copies of the photo.  I also looked through some of the 1940's year books and it was eerie to look at the Seniors in the Service section, which had photos of all the seniors (and faculty) in their uniforms.

      I had a similar experience. Went to the Jackson County Historical Society in Medford, Oregon. Told them I was looking for High school year book for my mother who graduated 1937. They brought out the original year books. I looked through, and there was a picture of my mother I had never seen. Showed it to the librarian. She disappeared into the back and came out with a huge blow up of the picture that had been used recently in a display of radio history for the county. To see her picture so big was almost like seeing her again, but meeting her for the first time as she was so young. It brought tears to my eyes. They let me take pictures of the picture (even tho the rule was no photos in the library). I was thrilled to have that bit of family history. Kay

Library and asked if anyone there could find my parents' photos in their yearbook for 1940 - and was rewarded with their kind efforts and seeing photos of my parents the way they looked when they met. My mother was just 16, and my father 18. Later, I did the same at the Univ. of Georgia, and not only did I receive photos of my father with his fraternity and class photos, but they were kind enough to replace the diploma that went down with his ship during WWII - and also sent his transcript!

We were lucky today and actually found what we were looking for. It is from 1939 and it is neat to see a resemblance between us. Prior to this photo our earliest photo of her is at age 25.
