Bio History Note

Marcia  grew up in Polo, Illinois and notes:

"...Polo and Mt. Morris are (about) 10 miles apart and in my day were rivals in athletics.  Polo students considered Mt. Morris girls to be 'fast' and the boys 'dangerous' (in regards to dating)."

"My paternal grandfather was a janitor in Old Sandstone, probably in the 1950's."
