Where Are You, Allie?

There is a photo of Ypsilanti teen diarist Allie McCullough somewhere in the Ypsilanti Archives.

I ran across a random note in another file saying that the Archives owns this photo and that it shows her "suffering signs of consumption." It was taken shortly before Allie's death.

But the note was old, and from the time when the Archives was housed in its former cramped space. Since then, it's moved into its present space, and spread out, and recategorized all sorts of things in boxes in the back room. Who knows where the photo is now. But I'm on it.

I will find this photo.
