Birgitta Carlson - Homecoming Queen 1960

I recently e-mailed Birgitta and sent her these recent scans of pictures...partly to see which MHS event she was the Queen.
Birgitta responded and told me she was Homecoming Queen and reminded me that event was 60 years fast time has passed!!!

While working on the AFS stuff, it hit me - have any of our AFS/FE students passed away?
If so, please let me know and also send me the obituary/proof - I will not post a death of anyone without the proof.


AFS student overview on this page

I just now noticed that somehow I started using Carlsson as Birgitta's last name years ago - I noticed the error from her signature above that it is Carlson with just one "s."
Not a major historical error but something I hate no matter how small or big, so if you ever see misspelled names in my writings, please let me know ASAP!

"MS Seven Seas" - ship Birgitta came over on to the US.
