(last two names added by Gladys Hubbard Swift with information given by their daughters, Margaret Hayes Hollister and Esther Bickford Shackelford. Will be glad to add other information:- (GHS 1311 Branchlands Drive, Charlottesville, VA 22901-1753).

JAMES ROBINSON '37 (2-17-96) - Herewith ... the following ... a connection to some of us -- failure of memory and recognition -- is conceivable. Recently in an airport a man looked familiar, and the longer I looked the more familiar, though he showed total lack of recognition as he returned my gaze. Finally I took the plunge and said "are you a twin?" You should have seen his jaw drop, for he was indeed a former patient who did have a brother that was a very identical twin. After establishing identities, I reminded him of an episode when he was hospitalized under my care. His brother came to visit him one day. A nurse saw him walking down the hall, pointed and shouted, "What are you doing with your clothes on?
