Another telegram, once again from Frank Stevens, once again to his mother, Agnes Tully Stevens in Chicago, brings up a question. The telegram is dated June 21, 1946, just past her birthday, which is June 12. And Frank is evidently still in Mexico, though promising to come home soon.
It brings up this question: Where was Frank only one month prior? Was he still in Mexico, working with the medical team affiliated with the Bracero Program? Or was he granted leave—and able to secure the funds—to travel all the way home for his father’s funeral in May, 1946?
