He probably gave it to some girl, and that's what they did. The boys gave the sweaters to the girls, and if a girl had a sweater, she gave it to the boy that she was going with or something. I remember I had a sweater or two that had belonged to some other people, but I think I gave them all back. But that's interesting. I mean, I did graduate from SFA High School. In my day, it was called a Stephen F. Austin Senior High School, Because I'll date myself. I graduated in 1944 and my brother graduated in, oh, goodness, 1940. So, those are old, old things. I mean, I can't imagine the sweaters are still being there.
I know who he probably gave that sweater to years ago, and I remember him wearing it, but my brother... But I don't know whose that was that had my name in it. It could have been anyone, I guess. Very interesting though. You received those sweaters if you played football, or baseball, or tennis, or if you had something like that. And I did not. I didn't run track or anything like that. So, I would suppose that belonged to someone else, and how my name got in it, I have no idea. I don't even remember wearing any sweater that belonged to a track manager, but that was a long time ago. There's a lot we don't remember from back in those days.
I was there during the 30s and the 40s, and then I married in 1948. And of course, I went to that university that Texas A&M didn't care for in those days. But girls could not go to Texas A&M except during the summer. And we lived on the campus, so of course I could go during the summer. But I had to go to Austin to college, which was okay in those days. But I'm still an Aggie. You might know. I grew up there.
Well, I appreciate you calling me. It's always so nice to hear about things like that, and good luck on your 150th anniversary, my word.
