Article about Hyatt Bunn. It is called: NO ORDINARY DAY THIS, FOR HYATT Illinois, 1936
For Hyatt Bunn, 9 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. H. M. Bunn, 345 East Baker Street, this has been no ordinary Christmas vacation. It passed well out of that realm Christmas morning when Hyatt, tossing peables and idly kicking what ever might catch his eye along the railroad tracks near the sale barn on Clayton Street spied a garter snake scurrying toward a ditch.
The throwing (something, I can't read it) earnest then. Later the 26 inch body of the snake lay motionless. It was dead. A few good shots had done the work.
Hyatt's heart pounded and his head in its brown aviator's helmet was held high as he carried home the prize. Stalking a snake is something. Stalking a snake on a warm Christmas day when the wiggler would have ordinarily have hibernated month's ago is all epoch in a boy's life. This has been no ordinary vacation for Hyatt Bunn.
He founded a program for the elderly at Baywood-a retire- ment place that he and Ruth and also his second wife lived until their timely deaths. The program was to help with orderly and precision if we would have a disaster happen. They would have supplies and needed things in hand Also how to get out of the building savely and quickly.
I will be adding articles as found.

HY, You know sometimes it's hard to take the risk of truly caring about another person, but I'm really glad I took that risk with you- From the very beginning you understood exactly how I felt. And in time, I realized that loving you could only make me feel warm and safe and good- That's why this spring I want to thank you for your gentleness and caring- and especially for being the wonderful person that I'm so very happy to love, HAPPY EASTER, Love always, Virginia
