Hello everyone. This is a great idea. Seems the legend of Room 8 still runs rampant. In 1961 we moved into a home located on Ewing Street. The backyard butted up against the schoolyard fence. It's no wonder Room 8 would eventually find his way to our backyard door looking for a freebie. I still remember him vividly, his slow walk, gray hair and those big yellow eyes. He'd come by at his leisure and dine with our two family cats and actually stayed around for one full summer.He lived a great life. How many cats can say they had an entire neighborhood at their disposal for food, warmth and companionship. Here is a url that has more information on him and the location of his gravesite. There are also several photos of Room 8 and students taken by photographers during his heyday.
