Ruth Lyman Copeland is my grandfather's youngest sister by six and a half years. She turned 19 years old in the summer of 1926, just after she completed her two years at Abbot Academy, a private girls' boarding school in Andover, Massachusetts, (which merged into Phillips Academy in 1973).

Although she was born in Winnetka, Illinois, her family lived in Michigan City, Indiana for a short time in the 1920s.
I love these yearbooks. This entry shows that my great aunt Ruth was quite active at school: singing, acting, and playing basketball, among other activities. And the nickname "Cope" is often found in my family tree, for men and women.
