No guarantee on the spelling!"

"Rod Nalven’s 1954 photo of Class 6-2 incorrectly identified me as one of the girls in the picture. I was in Mrs. Helen D’Azoff’s class, not in Mr. Ellenport’s class. However, I can identify Anna Mellilo sitting in the last seat in the row to your right. We later attended Queen’s college together. The boy wearing glasses, standing 2 places to Mr. Ellenport’s left is Michael Lipshutz. In the second or third grade, Michael, a bright well behaved boy, used to taunt me because of my name, calling me Uneeda Biscuit instead of Anita. My spelling is probably off too."
