Trumbull Rogers Memorial Service

On February 9, 2012, I attended a memorial service for MWSA member Trumbull Rogers who passed away after a long illness on September 4, 2012.

Trumbull's sister, Grace, was organizing the memorial service, a complicated affair as she was living in California and the service was going to be in Manhattan, where Trumbull had spent most of his life. Grace was contacting friends and organizations that Trum (as he was known) knew or was a member of. Her MWSA contact information had Maria Edwards' name and she forwarded the details to me.
