the last piece of the puzzle

Students in the Snack BarIn June we received an email from Jim Williams ’56, who identified nearly everyone (including himself!) pictured in last issue’s “Eagle Tales.”

Today we received a note from Harl Laplace Jeffrey, CAS ’55, with the identity of the lovely lady in the polka-dot dress. He writes:

The mystery girl seated next to Jim Williams in the photo is Mary Betschler.  She was homecoming queen in the 1954-55 academic year.  Mary was my longtime friend dating from high school.  Sadly, she died in the mid-1990s after 15 plus years of living with cancer.
