In March of 2022, Jamie Rau contributed these color slides
taken in 1958 by her grandfather, Colonel Clarence E. Read, when Jamie was
eight years old. Col. Read lived in one of
the twelve Generals' houses
were on Siolistraße across from Frankfurt High School, with family including
his wife Margaret, his daughter Donna, and Donna's daughter Jamie.
Col. Read was stationed in Frankfurt 1955-58 and — like
— worked in the IG
Farben building. Coincidentally, he was born and raised in Rockford,
Illinois, just like Pam's father. They might have known each other, but
we'll never know. Click the first image to enter the gallery and see larger
