[Post Followup] [Mount Saint Joseph's Orphanage, San Francisco Board]

I was at St. Joseph's from 1935-6 to about 1939 - I think. I'd love to see the records. It felt as though I'd been there for 5 years but it was probably less. Life was so structured at MSJ that it took a long time for me to become a regular kid with too much freedom.
I don't know if anyone remembers The World's Fair in 1939 or going to see "The Little Princess" at the Orpheum Theatre (I think). To publicize the movie I was the "orphan" and given the title "Little Princess" - a big deal to MSJ and me.
