Added correspondence on the Golden Rule School:
I am pleasantly shocked at what I found on your web page; a picture of the old Golden Rule School House, 71st and Lewis, Tulsa County, OK. I moved there with my family in December 1941, when I was 14 months old, and remained there until I married in 1961. My dad purchased the 1-acre property from a man who I believe was responsible for converting the school into a dwelling, after a fire had almost destroyed the structure. My dad sold the property in 1969, and later it was razed c. 1975. The exact location was 7335 S. Lewis, where today stands an office building.
Interesting that I knew one of the persons in the photo; Dorothy Stunkard, on 3rd row. The Stunkard's lived at the corner of 71st and Lewis (NE corner) in a large two-story brick dwelling, having a large farm in the area. We had good neighborly interaction with the family.
