Fauntleroy Landmark

Sir: The February feature “A Wrecker’s Dozen” included a photo of the Franklin School of Washington, D.C., slated for demolition. It is an interesting coincidence that this school was the alma mater of Vivian Burnett, “The Real Little Lord Fauntleroy,” who was the subject of my article in the same issue. Vivian and his brother, Lionel, both attended Franklin School. They were together in the eighth grade at the school with Miss Ella Morgan as their teacher when “Fauntleroy’s” brother was stricken with his fatal illness.

We hope you enjoy our work.
