Ford Madox Ford @ Olivet College

Grew up not far from Olivet in Jackson, but have never been to the campus.

I sent two e-mails inquiring about Ford Madox Ford's time at Olivet. I got one very generous reply from a Marty Jennings (Director of Alumni Engagement): two pics of FMF and a promise to forward some info from the Olivet College archives.

Here are the pics (pics of pics). According to Marty, the student in the second photo, a George Krepps ('38), just died a year ago (I believe at 100!).
