Reader Queries

Each month, The Kentucky Explorer magazine receives literally scores of letters from our faithful readers. Among those letters we often find queries, ranging from requests for words to songs and poems to trying to locate former classmates and military buddies of long ago.

Here are a few queries from May 2007

Ida Spence Homes
In Covington

Dear Editor:
I would like to hear from anyone who lived at the Ida Spence Homes in Covington, Kenton County, Kentucky, from 1954-1959. I've been in touch with three girls I knew back then and would like to hear from more who lived there. Thanks to The Kentucky Explorer for printing my letter and thanks to everyone who wrote and sent pictures of the old Independence School.

Old Paper Items Wanted
Dear Editor:
I would like to receive advertising flyers of events, old pictures of strange happenings, or just old pictures in general. I would also like posters, prints, soldiers' letters, maps, military documents, postcards, stamps, trading cards, or anything that is made of paper that is old, strange, or unusual.
If any reader would like to send any item of this type, I would greatly appreciate it.
