DEAR SUN SPOTS: The Sun Spots column entitled “Searching for Family and Friends” on June 23 was interesting. I’m hoping you can help me with my search for an art folder from 48 years ago. I was at Montello School in seventh grade during the 1972-1973 school year and took an art class with Miss Sherman Kendall.

All of us students had our own art folder with sketches and crayon drawings. From September through June we all had a portfolio of art work we completed and kept in a cabinet drawer. All my classmates took home their art folders, but I didn’t. The folder was in the file drawer the day before the last day of school and the next day it was gone. I was upset by this and to this day I’ve always wondered what happened to that folder. I had oodles of sketches in it that I had worked hard on. Does it still exist? I wonder if Miss Kendall, (who most likely got married and has a different last name) is still in this area.—No name, no town

ANSWER: Our creations, especially those early ones, are precious and I’m sorry your portfolio was lost. It would be a miracle if it still exists, but miracles do happen.

Have you attempted to contact the school district for information on Miss Kendall? In a quick on-line search, I found a female art teacher named Sherman Kendall in the Falmouth-Portland area. It would be wonderful if she reads this, or if any Sun Spots readers know her, please ask her to contact me.
