Lucia Van Ruiten gave this to me out of her personal collection. When I first met her in the early 1960s, she was the Sister Superior at St. Thomas girls’ school int Los Angeles. At that time I was a visiting music teacher, teaching her 8th grade students American folksongs. After school, I would stay on and give guitar lessons to Sister Lucia, Sister Joseta, and Lita Rocha. I did that for a few years, and Lucia is still a close friend in 2017.
