Cottage baby John, Farmington State Teachers College, 1951

Contributed by Mantor Library at UMF


Here is little John, the Farmington State Teachers College Cottage baby from 1950-1951, at age 7 months. He certainly has grown under the watchful eyes of the students. John remained in the Cottage until June 8, and then left for his new home.

In a Home Economics diary letter by one of the students, it was noted “The students were sad to see John go—who wouldn’t be? His blond curls, blue eyes, his laugh, and everything about him that made him John will never be forgotten by us.”
