Hurry out to your local bookstore and grab the Sept/Oct issue of Michigan History Magazine. On page 49, you'll find my article, When Cuba Came to Marquette, about the role of the Holy Family Orphans' Home in Operation Pedro Pan. Thank you, Dr. Tony Madrigal, Carlos Naumann, Luis Piedra, and Richard Ryan, for sharing your stories with me and readers everywhere.
