In 2004, Gerry Morgan wrote about the May 27, 1937 letter sent to her by her classmates on a day she was home sick:

Alan—Wanted to share with you what I just found in my drawer. Don’t know where it came from and where it was before we moved out here in ’97. Anyway, thought you would be amused to read this letter that I discovered.

What a wonderful find. It adds new names to our list of Mar-Ken students, as the letter predates the yearbooks from which most of our names have come.
