Mrs Simpson & King Edward - teenager's letter from 1936

I'm writing from Wales in the UK. While looking through some of my late mother's personal papers, I came across a letter from (a pen-friend?) Olga Duska, written in 1936 from her home in Newmarket NH. Olga was a junior in high school and writes about films and make-up and what she's doing in school - she was social reporter for the paper. She also takes about President Roosevelt and Governor Landon. And comments on King Edward's "extra kindliness to an American woman. Altho I don't imagine it amounts to anything".

Does anybody remember her or know of her descendants?

I would be fascinated to know.
