The inventory of developments and improvements of the year past, which appeared in the Hudson Evening Register in the early days of 1914, with annotations and photographs--not as many of the latter as usual. (The snow and cold weather have interfered with Gossips photo excursions.)

  1. Dear Carole,
    Thank you so much for posting about Hudson High School graduation class of 1913! My grandomother, Alethe Holsapple, is listed. Also, have learned so much from your articles about the House of Refuge, where Alethe worked awhile, her mother Grace, grandmother Mrs. L.G. Stirling, as well as her sister Leonora who was a superintendent in 1923. Would very much appreciate a heads up if you ever see anything else about any of these women relatives of mine, or more about the institution as well.
    Many thanks,
