This 102-year-old portrait of the Connecticut Literary Institution's girls basketball team, presumably with their coach and manager, was donated to the Historical Society by Gilbert and Christine Ahrens. They identified the team member to the right of the coach as Gil's mother Mary Bissell, daughter of Leavitt Pomeroy Bissell, a major tobacco grower and cigar manufacturer in Suffield.
