for milre


Book made by classmates for someone named Milre Massey, who appears to have died at age 15 in 1914. Spied at a homespun museum-of-sorts in El Reno, Oklahoma, where the land runs of '89 and '92 took place on the 98th meridian.

When I see things like this, I always start concocting stories about people in my head... I'm sure the real stories were even better :)
