Archival search reveals ‘secret’ identities

ORIGINALLY WRITTEN
This old photo appeared in our Nov. 16 issue, and with it this question to readers: Who are the people gathered around the Hillsboro Municipal Swimming Pool, circa 1960? Several readers offered their best guess, but a recent microfilm search of old Hillsboro Star-Journal issues at the Tabor College Center for Mennonite Brethren Studies revealed the answer. Pictured, from left, are Roetta Cornelsen, Lora Toews, Deidre Hawkins and Gordon Stelting; completing a dive in the background is Dennis Heinrichs. The photo, taken by Bonnie Loewen, appeared on the front page of the July 4, 1963, issue.
