[back] See the Alumn News, Fall of '65 vol 12 no 1, Spring of 66 vol 1 no 1 - with [unintelligible] - to know names and date. [note] Hillsboro, Ore., Nove. 9-1962. Dear Mrs. Story:- Dr. Reynolds told me I might send these old pictures to you, to be put in the P. U. Museum. I - as Ruth Harris, and my brother Allan - were Freshmen in 1914 - and tho many names now escape me - I remember all the faces in these old pictures. A part of Boxer had been missing for many years - and the class in 1914 finally assembled all of him., so soon after school started, a good many of our class went out to Naylor's Grane and had this picture taken. Our class kept possession of him for a good while. Some day I hope to visit the museum again - Sincerely-Ruth Harris Euschede (Mrs. W. J.) 801 S. 7th Ave., Hillsboro Oregon.
