New Class Notes 1921

Mildred Runnells Battey shared some of her memories as a student at Keene Normal School, like the times she and her roommate would go downstairs after hours and make popcorn. Mildred was eager to hear about what was happening at KSC today. She is a very cheerful alum to spend time with, sharing stories of Keene.


1922

Marion Halladay Keef was delighted to receive a decorated pumpkin that Norma Walker '51 brought to her. Marion talked about her birthday party, which she had enjoyed. She was 103 and her son came from Rochester, N.Y., to visit her. Marion is very proud of him.


1924

On a beautiful October day Cassie Haven Sweet was surprised when Norma Walker '51 arrived for a visit. Cassie had recently had a visit from her grandson and his new wife, who had come to Vermont because she had never seen the fall foliage. Cassie asked about her classmates Abbie Brown, Helen Kimball Houston, Catherine Moore, and Irene McNamara. Norma was able to give her news of each one.


1927

Rosetta Brown Lowe enjoyed a tour of Sullivan, Marlow, Walpole, and Acworth, N.H., and Brattleboro, Vt. She was excited about being in Acworth because it was the town where she began her teaching career in 1927-1929. However, she didn't recognize many places because of the changes over the years. Rosetta had the opportunity to vote by absentee ballot. She is a very patriotic American. She received a letter from her longtime friend and classmate Margaret Grover Colburn. Would you believe they have corresponded regularly since 1927?

Margaret "Peg" Colburn lives alone in Weare, N.H., with family close by who take good care of her and her needs. Peg had to give up driving her car, which she misses, but says her family is always there for her. At Halloween, she greeted 30 trick-or-treaters with maple popcorn bags. She said the number of children who come gets larger each year.


1928

Mary Phelan Lane invited Norma Walker '51 for lunch when she came for a visit. Mary has many humorous stories about teaching in a one-room school in Stoddard, N.H., where she had eight grades. Mary and Norma shared information about people and places in Stoddard while enjoying their lunch.

IN MEMORIAM: Gladys Fairfield Stover '28 passed away Nov. 21, 2002, in Peterborough, N.H. She was an elementary school teacher in Washington, N.H., and created a cottage industry with her sewing machine.


1929

Evelyn Warren Bailey writes frequently to Norma Walker '51. She would enjoy hearing from her classmates. Evelyn likes to read the Class Notes section of Keene State Today.
