Ethel Myers, Where Are You?
As before, when I used this space to find Hunter Middleton, I am not expecting to find her among readers of this blog, of which there are very few. But I am creating this entry as a "Google Trap" whereby Ethel Myers, or someone who knows her current whereabouts, might come across this post while googling her name. Anyone wishing to contribute can add their own remembrance to a blog, or any sort of web page over which you have editorial control. Use her name "Ethel Myers," and link back to this post. (And if you like, you can let me know and I could link back to your page.) This should, over time cause this page to rise in the Google search results.
Here is a wonderful picture of Ethel ("Rat") with Sula Riden (now Kosacky) at graduation, June 9, 1985.
An Open Letter
I always eschewed your ubiquitous appellation, "Rat" in favor of your given name. Since you had embraced the nickname, I am uncertain whether you appreciated my distinction, or merely tolerated it. We did not hang out much, in my recollection, junior year. By the end of senior year, however, you were an indispensable presence at the Dining Room Table, and one of my very favorite people. Recently looking at the old yearbooks, I came across what you wrote to me, and I guess you thought I was OK, too. You were very kind, thank you.
I hope you are well.
More information supplied by Heath: Ethel attended the University of Missouri at Saint Louis (UMSL), where she obtained a B.S. in biology in 1999. Later, she is known to have lived and worked for some time in the St. Louis area.
Found! Not through my efforts here, but through our mutual friend, Heath. Huzzah!
