Richard and Ruth Merrick
J. H. Merrick's siblings Richard and Ruth are seen here in photos published in the local newspaper. Under Richard's photo, the caption reads "Class Day Orator of 1922, Wilbraham Academy." Like his father Charles of the class of 1879, and like his brothers J. Harold and Charles before him, Richard joined Amherst in the class of 1926. His younger brother Theodore would become a member of the class of 1929. Under Ruth's images, the caption reads "Wilbraham, Mass.- Member of the Graduating Class at Mt. Holyoke College."
