My Mom's Photo Album
As a result of an earlier posting about my mother's work on Yaqui legends, I was contacted by the grandson of one of the Yaquis she interviewed, who is looking for a decent photo of his grandfather. I think I have such a photo in the attic, but the search is going to take a while. The first album of photos I opened had only four pictures from Mexico, none of which showed the man I was looking for, but I found a lot of treasures, including these pictures of my mom in her 20's playing a harmonica.

These pictures were the happiest I found!

I'll try to get more of them online. We're leaving for the mid-year Yearly Meeting Sessions in Portland this afternoon, so it won't be until next week at the earliest.
