The photograph is the property of The Matteson Collection, negative no. 44064, Milwaukee Public Museum.

Welcome, Jorge. We're looking forward to hearing your story. In the meantime, you may want to explore this database futhers as there are several former Pedro Pan kids already registered who were also sent to Don Bosco's in Luisiana and you with any luck you might know and remember them. Incidentally, the not-for-profit, Miami-based Pedro Pan organization named Operation Pedro Pan Group,Inc has a Facebook page (http://www.Facebook.com/OPPGI)you might want to visit at your leisure in the future. Best wishes, José Antonio Amaro Reyes.
