George Rice: Sister lived across street from Hancock Hotel

George Rice writes:
Just talked to my sister, Margie Coomer, which was a young girl living in an apartment across the street from the Hancock Hotel and walking to the high school on the hill and remembers the hotel quite well. She remembers some of the residents who lived there at that time, naming one as Arthur Tucker. Noticing the dress of all the men as wearing white shirts and hats also gives some hint of the era. She also said that at that time the band director was W.H. Owens. - George Rice
