Barton/ Forney Album
Forney, Fredde Jo (1944-2010)
Group/ School photo of the Morning Kindergarten Class, Naval Air Station, Adak, Alaska, Fall 1949. Fredde Jo Forney Hethington is the fourth child from the bottom on the slide. During that time, all school playground equipment was kept inside because of the cold and wind. Girls who had just come from the lower forty-eight wore Mary Jane shoes while all the other children who had been on Adak awhile wore the only shoes available, sturdy oxfords. More photos of Adak, Alaska Naval Air Station personnel are found at Michael Gordon’s “A Pictorial and Anecdotal History of Adak, Alaska, U.S.A.” at http://www.orneveien.org/adak/ Photos appear under the heading "1948 Chaplain Fredric John Forney." This picture came from the Forney/ Hethington Collection by Fredde Jo Forney Hethington and Lucius Cale “Prince Louie” "Lou" Hethington.
