Almira Cheney on the Founders' Quills
Being stick pins with tiny prong guard, we promptly lost them during the first few years. I believe, I still had mine when I graduated in 1896 but had lost it by 1913. Since they cost $2.50, the lost ones were slow to be replaced. We thought all of them were lost; but on that happy day when I arrived at Glacier Park Convention, the first person I saw was Aileen Taylor, our convention initiate, and she was wearing her mother's original pin!
