Dear Wally,

I haven't been able to keep up with the Hiawatha news this past year because of the serious illness of my husband. I have taken care of him myself, so I haven't had much time for my computer. Fortunately he is better now.

I was so happy to find the picture of my sister, Nadine Gleason (Babbel), and the third and fourth grades she taught in Hiawatha when she was young. I didn't have this picture of her.

I was also very sad to learn of Carma Rae Allred's passing away. I send my sympathy to her family. I remember her as a very beautiful little girl.

I enjoy the pictures you have of Hiawatha Day and the Hiawatha breakfasts. I still recognize a lot of the people. I moved away from Hiawatha to New York State when I started the 9th grade, but Hiawatha remains in my memory and I thank you for your wonderful site.

Sincerely,

Shirley Gleason Jones

Message from Eldon Miller

Wallace, I only have 30 Hiawatha Memories books left. I'd like to make sure everyone from Hiawatha has a chance to get one. Would you put it on your Hiawatha Blogger page so that those that may not know of it can know it is available. They can write me at: Eldon Miller, 819 Castle Gate Circle, Helper, Ut.,84526. The postage is $2.77 and the book is $15.00. The way they are going I may have to do a 2nd printing. Keep up the good work. You are doing a great service.

Subject: Have you seen?
My cousin got a photo copy of a history of Hiawatha with plans of the different size cottages the mine built for the miners. Has no date but when I went their about 42 years ago the drawings look like the homes that were there. If I ever find the pictures of that trip I will let you know. My mother Winona Beth Wardell was born in Hiawatha May 10, 1923 and is now 87. She was 3 when her family moved to California. My Great grandmother Lottie (Charlottie Rosettie Borreson Olsen ran the boarding house in the EARLY 1900's. Oh, the person who wrote the history of Hiawtha with the home plans are: Matt Warner, Harold Elliott and/or Dustin CarlsonDiana Tallmon

Mrs. Burmester's 2nd Grade 1948-49 Hiawatha


I have attached the picture I mentioned to you on Facebook.
As I said this is of Mrs. Burmester’s 2nd grade class in Hiawatha circa ’48 – ’49. I believe the room shown behind the group is our classroom too.
Fortunately my mother had the foresight to write the names of the students (at least those that she knew) on the back of the picture.

They are:
Standing, far back left is Mrs. Burmester

Hi all you out there. I have someone who is looking for ALL the words to the Hiawatha school song. In talking to people I find a lot of people who know some of the words but no one who feels they know all of them. If any of you KNOW ANY of them please contact me and let me know. Perhaps if we put all of the pieces together we can reconstruct the song. I thought sure Elaine (Hampshire) Jones might have a copy since her mother wrote the song, but she say's "nope she does not." If anyone can kelp let me know ASAP.

It is requested by the Bride and Groom "Please no gifts", because between the two of us we have more than enough, but if give is a must, money for the honeymoon is enough.

Dear Wallace:Thanks for all the Hiawatha information. You are special! Irene, Mike & I attended the viewing for Carma last night. There were lots of people there, & it was good to see ones we hadn't seen for many years! Irene & Carma were special friends most of their lives. Thanks for saying that I am your favorite 92 yr. old! I do feel fortunate to do as well as I do. I still drive, legally & take care of my side of the duplex that Gene (son) owns. He & Julie take care of me!LoveZoy
