Two Special Requests

This week's Twice Told Tuesday on Shades Of The Departed stems from two special requests.

First, I received an email from a footnoteMaven reader who had read an article on my mother titled A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody. Carlos GR was that reader and found his Grandfather's second cousin, Regina Reckholder, listed in that article. He asked if I had any photographs or information for her. I have both and am reprinting that information from The Bayside High School Triangle Yearbook 1942 in this Twice Told Tuesday.

I also received a comment on the footnoteMaven article Hidden Sources :: Alumni Records, about my four privately printed volumes containing information of the Harvard College Class of 1894. The volumes were: The Twenty-Fifth Anniversary Report - 1919, the Thirty-Fifth Anniversary - 1929, the Fortieth Anniversary - 1935, and the Harvard Alumni Directory of 1926. Barb, who wrote the comment, asked "Macy Millmore Skinner was my grandfather. Is there any picture, or any story of interest about him in the book? It would be great to get them."

Yes Barb, the article was written by your grandfather. Shades will reproduce that information for you in this Twice Told Tuesday article.

Shades is about photographs and making those connections.
