Subject: [wtbbl] Did you attend the Washington State School for the Blind?

Hello all -

I'm sending a note on behalf of the WSSB.  See below if you were a student there at any point.


Subject:  WSSB book remembrances.

Dear friend of WSSB:

A team of former and current students and staffers is being put together to publish a history of the Washington State School for the Blind on the occasion of the school's 125th anniversary next year.

We envision an oversized "coffee-table" book, in large print, packed with pictures, a chronological narrative, and remembrances from as many former and present students and staffers as possible. Some of these contributions will be incorporated into the main story, the rest will be printed in a separate chapter.

We're also looking at Braille and audio editions of this book.

Your remembrance, up to 300 words, can focus on your lives after leaving the school, and what effect - positive or otherwise - WSSB had on you.

Or you could describe a particular experience or character at WSSB you'll always remember. The more names and dates, the better. Please end your submission with your name, hometown and the years you attended WSSB.

We'll be combing WSSB's archives for pictures of former students, and we'd like to have current pictures of you to run with the old when possible.We're also interested in any memorabelia you might be initerested in donating to the WSSB museum, which is taking shape where the old gym used to be in the basement of the Main Building.

Please send print or Braille submissions with photos for the WSSB book
