This picture is exciting for me. I was contacted last fall by Dianne Howard, who has family in Atchison,Kansas, because she recognized the name Gladys Cooper. So, she sent me some pictures -- like the one above -- of her aunts with my aunts. This one (as you can see from the bottom caption) is from 1931 and shows Dorothy and Gladys Cooper with Dianne's great aunt Ruth Hanson.
Sometimes, I really love the internet. Thanks to Dianne for sending me pictures!
I may have posted this one before. From what I remember of my great aunt Mil -- and from what my parents have told me about her -- this is a surprising shot. Aunt Mil never struck me as an out-doorsy type of person, but she looks perfectly at home here.
