Photo of Anna Valentien and some of her early students in front of the “B” Street School, including Donal Hord (far left, next to Valentien), and Dorr Bothwell, later briefly married to Hord, center front, on the other side of Valentien.

Later, Anna Valentien wrote, “My most outstanding pupil is Donal Hord who came to me when he was still in knee breeches.”
