Cyril Burt, Golden Linford, John Campbell, Mary Lou Shepherd, Pete Cenarrusa, Ralph Steele, Wayne Hall, Ruby Stone, Larry Harris and Gertrude Sutton. In addition to the memorial presentations, musical commemorations will be featured in both houses; the Boise High String Quartet will perform in the Senate, and in the House, the BSU Meistersingers will perform, as will Reps.
