Ohio State Campus – 1919


Orton Hall and Campus, Ohio State University.  Columbus, Ohio //  View of Campus, Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio.  116.  Published by the Haenlein Brothers Co., Inc., Columbus, Ohio.  Made in the U.S.A.

Post marked Columbus, Ohio, October 22, 1919.  Addressed to Mrs. Lee [Florence Koontz] Weaver, 91 Ti.  reman Ave., Detroit, Mich.

“We can’t make Doctors of Judges out of girls.  You didn’t do your duty.  Ha Ha!  I suppose “Dad” (Lee) [Lee Norton Goodliff Weaver, Florence’s husband] is some proud guy now. HK  [Henry Koontz, Florence’s brother].  [then written on an angle across the bottom is written:]  wait till you see mine .  HK.”

This was a congratulatory note for Florence and Lee on the birth of their first child, a daughter, Leila Marie Weaver, on Oct 22, 1919.  ?  Not sure what Uncle Heinie [Henry] was referring with the message of wait till you see mine.   He had no children until 1925.
