While out estate saling last Friday, I stopped at a sale in Mehlville. While I was browsing, I heard people talking about the owner of the home being a local coach. His name was Coach Raymond Cliffe and after doing a little research found he was well known and fondly remembered in the high school level sports scene, having taught over 40 years from 1948 through 1992. In fact, he was inducted into the St. Louis Sports Hall of Fame. He was also a locally exhibited artist, helping design the scenery for the first holiday lights show at Tilles Park in Ladue. The Post-Dispatch wrote a nice article on him when he passed.
But with all due respect, this blog is not about Coach Clifffe. It's about his wife.
While rummaging through a box of photos and various ephemera, I came across what appeared to be publicity photos for a Miss Shirley White.
