Leatrice Joy Mayfield, member of the class of 1941 at Holtville Union H.S. in California.

The summer of 1940 was a memorable one for the lovely lady featured in today's blog. That summer she was crowned Queen of the County Fair at the Imperial Valley in Southern California. On the following year the Mirage year book mentions that she served as secretary to the student body, participated in Girl Reserve, Glee, class secretary, student body treasurer, drama and Saga. Her major was commerce and she was always hanging out with Wanda Arndt or Hellen Miller.
Six months after her graduation the attack on Pearl Harbor took our nation into WWII.
This blog is requesting anyone who has the continuation of the thread to help us continue the life story of the characters featured here. I welcome contributions and ideas from visitors.

God Bless You,
