Reginald Love Foster commenced writing my mother in 1895, and, by letter, the two families were frequently in communication until about 1935.
Before me is a very old newspaper picture--and, although I have given Reginald Foster of Yale, I believe he was a Harvard man. The middle initial is wrong but I have just received a newspaper picture where a Maltby is given a different initial under his picture from that in the text.
"Captains of the Blue and Crimson."
"Captain Reginald C. Foster, Harvard, and Kilpatric of Yale, are shown as they boarded the steamer "Vaderland" to direct their respec- tive teams when they enter the meets against the teams of Oxford and Cambridge. Foster will only direct his men as he was disabled some days ago. Both the captains have reputations, not only for athletics, but for the direction of men."
