    Volume LXIV Number 3 - It isn’t a mystery that snow has fallen recently in this barnyard. However, white shirts and dress hats aren’t usually barnyard attire. Who are they? Where are they? What are they preparing for? Can you approximate the time frame? Let us know what you think!

    Volume LXV Number 1 - You may not know this boy, but isn’t he a handsome young lad equipped to serve his county, or maybe a local parade, with his rifle and drum? The porch where he stands looks like a restful place to take a break from duties at hand.

    We have an answer to Volume LXIV Number 2's mystery photo with many thanks to a very attentive reader of the Quarterly, Connie Molnar Sterner. She put online sources to work and was able to identify the location as Weeks Field at St Lawrence University. The stadium was begun in 1907 and by figuring some of the names of the players she said the photo is SLU’s track team around 1919-1920 and wonders what the shoulder sash signifies? A little more research on her part revealed full names of some of the team members which we will affix to the photo for our files. If you recognize any of the young men, we welcome additional information.
