Carol thank for the additional information. I actually was from Rock Island Illinois and was sent there by my father in the 50's I beleive. I attended the school in Andover but do not remember the name of the school. At the time I was there one did not have to be an orphan. My father moved me around different places such as foster care and the orphanage to not have the responsibility of taking care of his sons. My brother was sent to a military academy of which I do not know where. He was eight years my senior. The house mother's daughter at the orphange when I was there was my teacher for spanish when I was in the Peace Corps many years later. I remember one of the boys that was there in my dorm which was bullied alot as he was smaller then I and had a deformaty which sad to say deverted the attention of me. I have mixed feelings of the orphange and this is coming out as I write my book. Any other assistance would me appreciated. Thanks
