Thank you Anna Faye Teer Peterson

AHS Alumni Anna Fay Teer Peterson, age 105, passed away recently. She was a member of the class of 1929 and Anne, her daughter, is a member of the class of 1958. Upon reading her obituary I discovered an incredible fact: Mrs. Peterson was a sponsor AHS Red Jackets of AND designed the original Red Jacket uniform – the military style that I wore in the ’70’s. The maroon wool jacket, white skirt and white marching shoes and socks I remember so well. The leader of the Red Jackets during my tenure was Austin architect Emily Little who ran a tight ship! I would love to post your story about the Red Jacket in honor of Mrs. Peterson. Julie Sayers
