Con. 8 High School Students Spring 1933
The picture on this page
was provided by Wilma (Duke) Stout who after a long search found it
in one of her boxes. It is a 5x7 black
and white print. On the back in 1933
, Wilma had written the names of all of the fifty
six persons in the picture. For the students however she wrote just
the first name and then an initial for the last name. After
70 years some of the last names were not remembered, but most were. Those
for which we only have the initial letter of the last name are shown
with a ? that
does not question the first name or initial, just what the full last
name is. Can anybody help fill in those?
This picture includes the three high school teachers and all nine of the 1934 graduates . Look for the asterisk after the names of class of '34. The highschool still included the eighth grade students as it did again in later years. Wayne Bock, Ruth Bradley , and Lillith Dempsey in this picture are known to have been eighth graders at the time.
Wilma remembers that this was Senior Day . Many of the 1933 Seniors apparently chose to "play hooky" that day, and the ones that came are mostly costumed. Thus many of the senior girls are in overalls, unmatched socks, and other eccentric bits of clothing that I am assured was not typical dress for them.
In the following image the persons are marked with an ID number that refers to the name list. The name list is split with the upper half above and the remainder below the picture. The entries tagged + are additional information supplied recently by Dorthy (Estoll) Shelton. Even more recently (January 2003) Dorothy went through the enumeration books for that year with the help of which other identificatins were made and these are tagged ++ .
