This is a very long letter from the Association of Public and Private Cuban Accountants in Exile. But it ends with a letter to President Nixon to from the Association support the immigration of Cuban Exiles that have been held up in Spain and Mexico due to visa problems. It's dated April 1971. the form and letter have not been filled out by my grandfather so I'm not sure what became of this.
What can I say I love all kids of lined paper and so did my grandfather. He was much more of a conservator than I was with only two sheets left it would not still be on my shelf.
A repurposed CitiBank box, perfect for pens & pencils! Who doesn't have a mixed box of pencils out there? Oh, there's some nail files in there too.
I have no idea who this belongs to or what it's for but it might be the cutes little lock I've ever seen. If I had to guess, it looks like a lock to a diary, I'm sure I left a couple laying around as a kid.
This one definitely falls into misc. This isn't the best picture, but at least you can see the coffee stains which are still there. He had a few more of these, I only took two of them. They where tucked in his desk, which makes me think that these were saved for a reason.
This is one of 8 photo album that my grandfather kept of the family. Of course there were pictures that came after that, so I'm not sure what made him stop at 8. However there are others which don't have this label on them. So they must have had a clear significance for him. You can make out my grandfather in his car, on the left hand page, second one down.
In keeping with showing off some folder content, this is where I found my grandfather's lotto strategy sheets. I particularly love how this folder looks like it belongs to someone in grade school, with his glittery stickers.
This folder once held my tax forms, which naturally my grandfather did every year until I moved to Chicago. I still have all of my tax forms neatly filed away. As you can see the folder has been repurposed, I've posted most of the content found in this folder, tax forms, letter head, etc.
One of the many forms of gridded paper used by my grandfather. Which I font more than just a single sheet of this one.
Ah the Sony Watchman. I totally remember when he got this, he would watch baseball games on it. This was a black and white model, not too much has changed we are still viewing our tv from a tiny screen. Only the picture is MUCH better now.
I found this book in my grandfather's night table. It's dated July 1975, so just 5 years after coming to the states. It's a pretty standard picture book, showing photos from around Cuba's provinces. It has a little intro section that gives a bit of Cuban history until 1959. Printed in Miami, FL.
This is my 8th grade graduation program, my name is highlighted so you won't miss it. (not by me) I actually received the art award at the ceremony for calligraphy ...I have no idea where those skills went but I need to tap into them!
