Open Session: September/October 2009

What readers think.

Blanch Higley and family
FRENCH WAR BRIDE: This year will mark 63 years since my friend Blanche Higley (then Pinguet) came to the United States from her native France. She arrived to marry and start a life with Ernest Higley, an American soldier, after World War II. (Ernest and my husband are cousins.) I wanted to share her story and this photograph with other readers.
