An Unopened Letter Postmarked Lubbock, Texas, September 16, 1930

Mrs. J. E. Managin (Mary A. Managin) was my great-grandmother.

 

What if it contains a warning that the Mount Merapi volcano in central Java is going to erupt? Somebody could have read this letter and saved numerous villages and thirteen hundred lives.

 

Mary A. Managin (1886–1943) is buried in the Evergreen Cemetery in Riverside, California. A photo of her tombstone can be found here.
