I bet there were some great athletes back in those days that never really had the opportunity to show their talent.

My mother Lois Emily Sheirbon Sheldrake was always proud of the fact that she played basketball for Odell High School.....never was sure why girls athletics went away for some years before being "forced" back.

Moved to my home state of Iowa 2 months ago and just the other day came across a bit of HR/Portland history in a local thrift shop....the biography of Ruth Hanna Barnett, " The Abortionist: A Woman Against the Law". According to the book, she was born in HR in 1895. Her biographer wrote that she was flamboyant and compassionate. Apparently she made millions and spent some time in jail but she claimed never to have lost a patient in the 40 years she provided the service. I had heard about her when I was leading architectural tours in Portland as her office was in a building that was on my Classical Terra Cotta tour. The book, published in 1994, looks pretty well researched and written and puts some historical perspective on the issue. It also has some interesting family photos and news clips.

as others have already noted, looking closely at the detail of these pictures is something that I need to work on....just now in looking again at the picture I noticed the feet on the ball....whoever staged this picture really knew what they were doing.

My grandmother Vera Lafferty was captain of the team about 10 years later, in 1915. Funny that she never mentioned it to me!
