Herb Pickett writing: I've been working with the Billy Lynn pictures, putting them in sheet protectors and adding them to a Hyde Bay notebook. I find that your 1931-32 date is in error. Take, No 4. "Jake showing signs of strain." This is Jake Madden, (John B.) who was a classmate of Larry's a Yale, valedictorian of the class of 1941. This picture has to be 1938 or 1939. Since I am in that picture and also in no. 5, it shows definitely thinning hair, and I discovered my approaching baldness in 1936. No. 37 shows the Commodore in the Rec Hall, which was built, I think, about 1937.

Jake, incidentally, eventually became CEO of one of New York's largest banks, and for a vacation retreat owned most of Christmas Cove, Maine. This is, of course, irrelevant to actual Hyde Bay History.

Dr. William "Billy" Lynn writing; Jake showing signs of strain.
