Tribute to Miss Hammond

The following letter from O. J. Thompson, former County Superintendent of Schools will be appreciated by the many students who took teachers training at Neillsville High School under Miss Ellen Hammond.

"Madison, Wis., - Jan. 25, 1935

Dear Mr. Crothers,

I am herewith enclosing check to cover my subscription up to Jan., 1936.

Just before Christmas we were delighted to have Miss Hammond spent the evening with us. As I grow older, I more and more appreciated the wonderful influence on her teaching and I feel that fortunate indeed where the youngsters who sat at her feet. The influence of this good woman’s teaching will be felt for many years in Clark County.

Mrs. Thompson and myself wish you many more years of community service.

Sincerely Yours, O. J. Thompson,

410 Virginia Terrace"
