Wallet Lost Since The 1940's Returned To Owner
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

We're not precisely sure how Warren Houghton lost his wallet and his baseball glove. Suffice it to say, he was a boy. In the 1940s, he accidently dropped his possessions inside a wall in a one-room schoolhouse in Cornish, New Hampshire.

He is now back in possession of pictures of his family, a Boy Scout ID and a letter from his sister.
