I wasn't sure about sharing this next group of photos because I suddenly realized that, although Dad may be gone, many of his schoolmates may still be alive and not want their images posted online. I went to a the members of a new Facebook group for genealogy bloggers and was happy to receive reassurance that posting the photos wouldn't be wrong, as long as I would be willing to delete them if asked, which I certainly would. I really appreciated that feedback because I kept going back and forth on it.
Well, without anymore second-guessing, here are those photos. Once again, I have captioned them as my father did.
|George Holmes, Charlie Wrubel, David Epstein, Dom Daniels|
Dick Donahue, Jim Maselli, Stanley Dunn, Arnold Gross
Rod Martin, Diane Dana, Betty Nelson, Ann McCormic,

|"...I don't like pickles either."|
|"...they just sit there."|
|"Oh, let me bandage it."|
|"...and my junior pin..."|

|Waldman's 97 yd. touchdown Bristol Game|
My dad developed his own film, so he must have masked the arrow to show us Mr. Waldman making his amazing touchdown.
In some spare moments I have been doing a little bit of detective work, seeing if I can find any of these schoolmates. If I do, I will certainly let you know. In the meantime, I hope you have enjoyed this look at high school in the early 50s.
In my next post I hope to have an update on my Evernote organization and the Genealogy Do-Over.
