    I have an old Treasure Island book that is signed by Ida Lillian Corley from Rogers, Texas in which she donated to Rogers High School on Feb. 11, 1921.

      Dena — so neat! I’m not familiar with Ida Lillian Corley, but there are a lot of Corleys out there I’ve yet to discover! Thanks for your comment!
