Sir: I read with great interest the article “The Policeman’s Lot” in the February, 1970, issue. However, I do have one correction. On page 11 there is a picture of
women doing exercises with the caption “Those above are members of the New York department’s class of 1923” … [but] the picture you show is the graduating class of the Delehanty Institute Policewomen’s Course in the year 1923. The man standing on the right-hand side of the picture, with the sweater on, is the late M. J. Delehanty, founder of the institute. …
