This newsletter was just discovered (2007/05/22) among a lot of old geneological information. Much of the information is out-dated but the history is still valuable. Editorial comments were added for clarification and are shown in brackets ([...]). The newsletter is undated; from the content, it was written and sent out sometime after the 1977 reunion.
