Dear Miriam and Carmen: Recently I have been in touch with Sister Niklas, Archivist for the Sisters of Notre Dame of Covington, Province of Kentucky. As you might remember, they were the sisters who ran St. Aloysius Orphanage in Cincinnati at the time you and your siblings stayed there. I am trying to learn about the presence of Pedro Pans at the orphanage, which I am told added up to 9 children. Sister Niklas informs me that a Cuban couple with children (Mr. and Mrs. Roberto Fernandez), who was employed by the orphanage during 1962 through 1967, lived on the grounds in an apartment located in the laundry building adjacent to the orphanage. At the time they were hired in 1962 Sister Josilda was the administrator. From 1963 until 1967, the year they departed, Sister Rheta was the administrator. While I realize that you and your siblings were very young then and that these events took place some 50 years ago, I wonder if any of you have any recollections of the Fernandez and the sisters? Please, let me know by contacting me at I would appreciate it very much. I am a member of the Operation Pedro Pan Group History Committee. I look forward to hearing from you at your leisure. In the meantime, best wishes to all, José Antonio Amaro Reyes.
