Leland Bunch attended the Western Kentucky State Normal School in Bowling Green, Ky. "The Elevator" was their somewhat satirical student publication. Leland attracted their attention for an article in this February, 1915 edition. By that time, he had finished his work there and had been superintendent of two schools at Livermore and Paducah.
Note that someone, probably Aunt Pearl, had written on the cover of this preserved issue "Keep for Edgar Leland to read when he is old enough." Edgar's middle name was taken from his Uncle Leland.
