Granddaughter of Sidney Gulick, the giver of the dolls

Visit by Sharon Gulick

Sharon Gulick

Dr. Sidney Gulick

We invited Sharon Gulick to Watauchi Elementary School. She is the great granddaughter of Sidney Gulick, who sent the Blue-eyed Dolls in 1927. She came to visit on June 16, 2001.

We spent an enjoyable time with Sharon Gulick at a class session with the 5th and 6th graders and at an all-school assembly attended also by Watauchi Elementary's Blue-eyed Doll Mary. At this time Sharon read a letter from her father, Mr. Gulick, 3d. He wrote, "I want to give you this doll to be a younger sister to Mary and as evidence of the promise to build a rainbow bridge on behalf of world peace." We received Mary's younger sister and pledged to become adults able to cooperate with people from other countries. Our time together with Sharon is now a page in the history of Watauchi Elementary School, and we want to take good care of Mary and Paula.
