Hello, Viviam. My name is José Antonio Amaro Reyes. Like you, I'm a Pedro Pan. I'm also a trustee and member of Operation Pedro Pan Group History Committee, whose function is to preserve and disseminate the history of Operation Pedro Pan. I was wondering if you would be willing to share scanned copies of the newspaper clippings of your arrival in Rhode Island and photos of your stay at St. Aloysius. Our organization has a media gallery in our webpage, where we feature photos of all the orphanages that participated in the operation. You will be credited as owner of the copies. I can be reached through this website or at Thanks, José Antonio Amaro Reyes.
