Picture of the week
Today is a 2 for 1 day. I couldn't post one of these pictures without posting the other.
Second from the left is Mrs. Mable Parkinson. She taught American Indian History at Brookhaven High School. She was the kind of teacher that everyone knew even if you didn't have her for a teacher. This is the way I will always remember her looking.
But then, I found a very early portrait of her. This is Mrs. Parkinson in April of 1952. Her Indian heritage doesn't show as much in her younger years, but this is a nice portrait.
