Thanks for the news clippings about the 1937 Blizzard. I remember it. I wasn’t allowed out of the house because I had Mastoid infections and draining ears for 8 months in 1936. My father worked in the shipping department of a door factory at S.E. 17th and Holgate in Portland. He couldn’t get to work for three days because of snowdrifts. Your father was out of school for a week. The teacher at McKay School, Mrs. Vose, couldn’t get to school from Oswego because of the snow. Beaverton High School was the only one that used buses then. I don’t have any pictures of any of this because we were too poor to have a camera. Your father got a camera for his sixteenth birthday in July 1941 and HIS DRIVERS LICENSE.
