Margaret Describes the Lincolnwood School

Description

The Lincolnwood School was a very nice building, with excellent teachers, especially in music and arts. Seventh grade kids all participated in the Evanston Music Festival. Margaret remembers the great musician John McCormack who often sang drunk, and how one time he got on stage and wouldn't sing until he got paid.
