Higgins kids & Missoula streets

It is said that one applicant, Hilda Higgins, had completed grade work only through the seventh grade of the Missoula grade school. The inference is, of course, that she passed the examination creditably. She was the Hilda for whom Hilda Avenue on the South Side is named; one of the streets named for the children of Christopher Higgins — Gerald, Ronald, Hilda, Helen, Arthur, Maurice, John (later known as Van Buren street), and Francis. Another short street now absorbed in the campus was named for the other son, George Higgins.

The above is taken from the Mary Brennan Clapp document - Narrative of Montana State University [University of Montana today]
