Image description: Volume 12 [formerly Volume 110]:
The date range of this volume is 1936 to 1948 with the bulk being 1944 to 1948 and one obituary from 1936. This volume is missing numerous photos, but does contain holiday cards from 1946 and 1947, obituaries on PTC employees, and correspondence addressed to Foreman from two PTC colleagues serving overseas during WWII [worth noting the letters do not appear to be redacted]. Also of interest is the annotation for the first page, which lists the societies and orders the individuals belonged to as follows: “Cassia Lodge #273, St. Alban Comandry #47 Knight’s Templar, Mystic Cross sisterhood #98 Dames of Malta.” Finally, Mrs. Gertrude Cooke Foreman, Mr. Foreman’s wife, is mentioned again.
