Caption Anita Luvera 1951
Description This photograph was taken of Anita Luvera on June 1951, in connection to a newspaper article (exact date and paper unknown):

"TIMES READERS HAVE THEIR SAY, Explain Democracy, Editor, The Times: Two months ago my name and address were printed in a youth magazine published in Japan. The article simply said that I was interested in foreign correspondence, which is my hobby. Since ths magazine was issued, I have received 340 letters from young people in every section of Japan, wanting to know about the United States, our democracy, what teen-agers do and everything conerning our school system.

It is impossible for me to begin to answer all these letters, yet I feel there must be an unlimited number of students in Seattle and other cities who would be interested in corresponding with these students of Japan. If you would publish a paragraph stating that I would be very glad to send anyone the letters or address they want, I know the writers would appreciate it.

I feel responsible for seeing that these letters are answered, for I believe that correspondence affords one of the best ways to explain democracy to the people of the world.

ANITA LUVERA, 2102 Ninth St., Anacortes"
