This photo was taken when my Father, Dr. Eugene Charles Pelton, graduated from Medical School. He and my Mother, Helen Parker Pelton, are at left, and my Uncle Phillip Pelton and Aunt Leah Hanson Pelton are at right. I want to know who the short elderly lady in the center is. She appears to resemble my Father.
