My cousin recently sent me this photo of my great-grandmother, Laura Landrum Lee Little, and her friends. We believe it was taken when she was at Bessie Tift College around 1910. I am hoping to find descendants of any of these woman and perhaps more information about this self-described “Grand Order of Naughty Nobodies.”
The names written on the reverse are as follows …
