I have a friend who is searching for a photo of Eppel's clothing store in
Iowa City, perhaps int the early 20th century. I told her that I had seen
such a photo somewhere...perhaps online. But now I can't recall where it was.
I know it's a long shot but perhaps someone on the list can help.
I want to thank everyone who responded to my question about the Catholic
boarding school. I know have 2-3 different places I can check along with
addresses and phone numbers. You've all been a great help.
Would anyone have knowledge of a Catholic boarding school in Johnson,
Scott or Linn counties say in the early 1920's and on up? I'm sorry that
I have such sketchy information and wish I could give you more. I know
that my mother was in a Catholic boarding school when she was 13 which
would have been 1926. It was not the Annie Wittenmeyer Home because I
remember her talking about the nuns. Any help with this would be
appreciated or maybe someone could point me in the direction I should be
looking. Thank you.
