Description:  

Pre-Colony History:  

Home in Colony: The Quipp family lived on the first land cleared by colonists after their arrival in Louisiana in 1917; it was located west of the Llano cemetery. In 1935 the crops looked good -- the berries had been gathered that morning, beans looked thrifty, tomato vines loaded down with large fruit, corn yielding roasting ears and sweet potato vines that promised a good harvest.  

Job in Colony:  

Other Info: In March 1934 Mr. Lewis, Dr. Cecil and Mrs. Fay took the first graders including: Joan Wooley, Opal Ogden, Violet Quipp, Blair Pickett, Roy Peecher, Martha Mahler and Martha Lentz to Leesville to give a demonstration of their singing to an audience that included around twenty-five Leesville teachers plus Superintendent Honeycotte.

Each child stood and introduced themselves as they did each morning, with name, address and rule. For example: My name is ...; I live in Newllano (Noo-yah-no); Vernon Parish, Louisiana, on Highway 171; My rule is the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you." Mrs. Harlow-Fay then demonstrated her method of teaching with the children.

In 1934, participated in the Kid Kolony track meet. In her age group (8 years and under) she jumped 3'3" in the standing broad jump and 5'6" in the running broad jump.

In May 1936 some of the frequent visitors at the colony pool were May Gossett, Joanne and Ruth Wooley, Isabel Page, Ione,Genevieve, Violet and Joy Quippp.
