1927 Student Body

1927 Student Body: The 1927 class and sports photos, as well as the student body picture above, were provided by Mary Branson-Spears and scanned by Susan Merrill Crandall. There are signs reading 1927 in the class and team pictures, but not in the big group photo. We received another copy of the student body photo from someone in Massachusetts, who said it was from 1932. However, some of the students signed the back of the picture, and some put their graduation year. The readable dates range from 1928 to 1931, so the 1932 date does not compute, and we're assuming it's from close to 1927.
