My mom and her sisters were very popular in school. They lived on Wayne Street, which is now Airport Highway, and attended Burroughs elementary. All graduated from Edward Drummond Libbey High School, which was named after the famed founder of Libbey Glass Company. I believe the company is now known as the Libbey Owens Ford Glass (LOF Glass that is used in automobiles) and also Libbey Glass company the makers of drinking glasses.

My mom was an artist for the Edelian, the school yearbook. She and her twin sister graduated from Libbery High in 1932. Can you believe they attended the 60th reunion of their graduation together.
