They show Miss Swansea Campbell posing under a blooming apple tree. they were taken May 1, 1932. They are such beautiful photos!

Three years later, Swansea’s wedding to H.M. Branch was announced in the June 16, 1935 Monroe Morning World. it states she had attended Indiana University, which explains why they have her photos!

She would later marry Walter Eugene Kotz. She seems to have had a daughter, also named Swansea Kotz, who was instrumental in getting the memorial for Selman Field installed at the Airport. Swansea died in 1968 and is buried in Riverview cemetery.
