It’s been a long day but somewhere in the middle of it I found a wonderful article that ran in the Houston Post on May 16, 1915. It’s genuinely interesting, a lively and detailed commentary on the daily routine of an “Instituter” in 1915. Note that my old friend W.T. Betts (here, here, and here) is mentioned, as is Elizabeth Kalb’s oratorical victory.I have no idea what long-ago librarian did the copying, but (not to point fingers) it was she rather than me who cut off part of some sentences.
Bonus: Scary sign on Valhalla today!
