Here’s a Valentine’s Day greeting from Joan Iversen’s suffrage postcard collection. You can view some of her other postcards in this gallery. She collected these postcards over much of her retirement.
Wonderful snapshot memory from Mark Delligatti. His annual trips back to Oneonta for alumni weekends for the State University of New York College at Oneonta were an occasion to also have a visit with Joan Iversen. Over the many years since his graduation, their relationship evolved from teacher-student into a friendship.
Thanks to Mark for sharing this photo!
I thought people might get a kick out of this joke gift that Mary Lou Ryan, a close friend and colleague of my mom’s, created and gave to her many years ago. It’s very yellowed status attests to its age–it was framed and hung on the wall in our kitchen for more years than I can remember. Reading it over always makes me truly laugh out loud, because it captures my mom perfectly!
