Tom Lewis Anderson and Effie Weseen Anderson

These "forgotten heroes" of the Deaf community met at Iowa School for the Deaf; their happy marriage and partnership lasted almost 46 years. I have their lifespan dates (6/2/1888—9/16/1966 for Tom, 2/7/1897—3/28/1993 for Effie), and have collected some useful biographical background from the Gallaudet University Archives. But what I'm looking for are silver spoons—a good photo of one of the specially designed silver spoons sold by the Andersons as a fundraiser for the scholarship established by Phi Kappa Zeta's Omega chapter for girls from California School for Deaf at Berkeley who wanted to attend Gallaudet College. I've asked around, but have not yet managed to locate anyone who has one of these spoons. Any additional info on, and photos of, the Andersons—a dynamic couple—is also welcome!
