At Hopedale High School in the fifties and earlier, (General Draper High School as it was known then)
    the General Draper Library was open every day. Lucy Day was the librarian there in the years I
    remember.. I don't know how far back it began, but in the fifties it was sort of a custom for upper
    classmen to tell the freshmen to ask Miss Day who that Indian in the library was. Miss Day would
    respond, "That's not an Indian. That's Dante."
