  1. Love all the history you post. Re: Sister Corcoran of St. Francis, I used to work there in Communications in the late 80s/early 90s and remember putting together some information about her. If you are interested in more information, that department probably still has old issues of the monthly newsletter.

    Also, I was just at Neville and read about a rare grand piano that was donated to the school by Miss Clara Hall when it opened. It was restored and sits on the stage of the auditorium. Legend has it the it was played by some famous people including Elvis, and that Bob Hope stood on it during his performance at Neville, only to have Miss Hall call out from the audience, “Mr. Hope, get off of my piano!”
