|My Daughter Dresses Funny, by Paula Hassler|
Arizona Republic, Sunday magazine, December 6, 1970
My mother wrote this article and a photographer from the Arizona Republic came to our houseto shoot the photos. It was the first article my mother published in the Arizona Republic.She has published a great deal with them since then, including as a columnist and freelance writer.
The boys in the photo are Jim and John, who were my best friends throughout high school.*The girl is Irene.It was near the end of my first semester at Camelback High after my family moved to Phoenix when I wasfourteen. It was a thrillto see our pictures in the paper, and I believe it made a splash with the other kids I was meetingat school. Recently, I asked my mom if she still had the article so I could post itto my site. Here it is, in full, as it appeared in print, in the Sunday ArizonaRepublic magazine so many years ago.
