The History Mystery #87: Who is This Mystery Person?

By Christina McDonald, Sierra Mono Museum

The Sierra Mono Museum is asking for a little help in identifying the individual riding this North Fork School bus, and the approximate decade. As the museum begins to move back, we would like more information on our photograph collections.  If anyone can identify this individual on the bus, maybe it’s the bus driver or a student, we don’t know.










Follow-up to History Mystery #86, from Dan Clarrion

On behalf of E Clampus Vitus, I would like to thank everyone for their great support and participation in this month’s The History Mystery. We are delighted at the response to this question, and have received some great information about the Mammoth Orange. It is gratifying to know that we aren’t the only people who love this icon of Highway 99 history. So many people added their recollections of their experiences at the Mammoth Orange, proving that it is deserving of both preservation and recognition.

Thank you everyone for your comments. In some form, we will incorporate the information from your comments into the plaque on the monument. Keep Oct. 10, 2020, in mind, as that is the day the Mammoth Orange is scheduled to reopen at the Fossil Discovery Center, barring any COVID-19 delays.
