I am making significant progress and perhaps can write you a story soon. Mr. Manning has contacted me on the Ely forum and I have replied. If he should contact you in person please let him know I would like to send him xerox of a group picture which may contain his grandfather.
Do you have any idea who the Henry C. Hall Middle School (Corte Madera) was named for? Perhaps any school history of the district. I have sent a letter to the school district (2 mos. now) and no answer.
Thanks again for your help. Once I fill the story out you may like it in your files.
