Caption LUVERA, Phyllis, and DWELLEY, Elizabeth
Description Phyllis Luvera, in her high school cap and gown, was presented with an award by Elizabeth Dwelley on behalf of Anacortes Business and Women's Professional Club. This organization was active in Anacortes as of 1936 according to the date on the trophy. Elizabeth Dwelley was the wife of Charles L. Dwelley, the son of Skagit Valley pioneers Joseph and Angeline Dwelley who came to Skagit country in 1870. Elizabeth played a key role in historic preservation in the Anacortes community. She spearheaded this banquet in 1948, an event that resulted in the first gathering together of historic artifacts for the purpose of preserving the city's history. Phyllis Luvera was born January 29, 1928, to Mary and Paul Luvera. Phyllis graduated from Anacortes High School in 1948. Her married name was Ennes, and as a retired schoolteacher she assisted with identification and dates on all of the Luvera family images cataloged in 2002-2003 at the museum.
