Last bell for Miss Frances
Baby boomers should remember Miss Frances, who hosted Ding Dong School from 1952 to 1956. You might call her the mother of Mr. Rogers.
Dr. Frances Horwich died in 2001 at the age of 94. Her estate is auctioning of memorabilia, including a collection of cartoons revealing that Bil Keane has been drawing the same children for half a century.
