ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Originally appeared in The Milwaukee Journal, September 28, 1989 with the caption, "Melodie Albritton examined her finished crane. Melodie was among the fifth and sixth grade reading classes who learned the art of origami, or paper folding, from Arthur Beaudry of the Milwaukee Public Library, recently at St. NIcholas School, 5375 N Green Bay Ave. The students studied "Sadako and the Paper Cranes" by Eleanor Coerr, a book about a Japanese girl who died of leukemia after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima during World War II. She wanted to fold 1,000 paper cranes to bring her good health, but died before she could finish. Her classmates finished the cranes, and a monument was built in her honor and for peace."
