New Mexico librarian finds letters from 1967

FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) -- A New Mexico librarian discovered a blast from the past, specifically 1967.

Lola Delaney tells The Daily Times (http://bit.ly/1gny3It) that she was recently cleaning the library of Hermosa Middle School in Farmington when she went through a cardboard box.

Delaney says inside were 31 letters all dated April 1967.

According to the letters, they were written by students and meant to be given to the class of 1987.

In the letters, the students touch on numerous topics including the Vietnam War, the space race and miniskirts.

Delaney says the students who wrote the letters have been invited to an annual celebration May 19 at the school, where the letters will be available to read.

She says she doesn't know if students in 1987 ever received them.
