In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

Writer Seeks Info on Delores Lott

AY Magazine looks appropriately middle brow and not some pulpy, sensationalizing publication.

Mr. James, I got your email address from the web site about Meridian High School graduates of 1958. I write true crime articles for AY Magazine in Arkansas, and I specialize in unsolved murders and disappearances. I'm looking for anyone who can give me some information about Delores Lott, who was murdered in 1968. I understand she was a member of Meridian's class of '58. If you knew her or if you can refer me to someone who did know her, I will be most grateful.

Many thanks,
Janie Jones

I certainly remember Delores, but we were not close friends. I didn't know she was murdered. Did any other classmates know this? How terrible.

I remember reading about her murder in the Meridian Star. I believe she was living in Arkansas at the time.
