Fenno Jacobs took this photograph of a Queen of the May school celebration in 1942 as part of a war propaganda campaign. He was part of a team of photographers who spent the month in Southington, Conn., taking pictures of residents at work and at leisure. The photos were compiled into a booklet designed to show friends and enemies in Europe the traditions and values of typical American families. Thousands of copies were dropped over Europe from military planes during the Nazi occupation.
Jacobs titled the photo ‘Queen of the May’ and noted, ‘Half kids polish, half Italian.’

Boston had nothing (zero) with which to charge Morton under existing law—it was a matter of pure hatred, fear and revenge. On that basis nor did they grant him “clemency”—after Morton’s nearly freezing to death in an unheated jail cell through the winter, Boston let the “old and crazy” (infirm) fellow go before he could die on their hands. By then they had enough problems with the English government.
