Class of 1939
Author Byron L. Reppert, second mayor of Mechanicsburg (1978-1981), earned a Purple Heart while serving in the South Pacific with the 4th Marine Division. A graduate of Lehigh University, Reppert married Bertha Ottylie Peplau, and they settled in Mechanicsburg in 1960 and opened the Rosemary House. An avid history buff, Reppert compiled a slide presentation of his vintage postcard collection to share with the community. This collection of postcards, and some from E. Lee Ritter, his longtime neighbor, are featured in Mechanicsburg.
