Here is Page 38, which has several Commencements, plus meetings, and a card of a woman who is completely unknown to me. Research shows there were several Lendrum families, but no one with the name Margaret/Maggie that I have found as yet.

Of course, these items leave me with many questions:
Who did my great-grandparents know in the Naval Academy? The Rockland Institute? What were Literary Exercises?
Who graduated in 1878 from the College of the City of New York?
And the big mystery - who on earth is this Maggie Lendrum? Clearly a friend...?
Please contact me if there are errors you notice or if you know anything about any of the cards or people mentioned on this page. Particularly if you know who on earth Maggie Lendrum is!
