I found this 1927 high school yearbook in a free box and the illustrations are amazing, they’re all by one Dorothy Senn, senior
@derek they had a 0-0 football game too lol
And every time they get stomped the recap is like "all our players put in a fine effort, no disgrace at all, they were simply a better team"
@prehensile "Both teams displayed a good defence but were unable to connect with the hoop" ... That's some insightful reporting.
@prehensile I LOVE that there was a real person who was really named Edna Eager! And her hair! Bring that tin roof bob BACK!
@prehensile this is so perfect, you can just imagine teens losing their minds laughing about how Mrs. Hawkins always says "Yes— all right."
@prehensile so Bradley used to be called Bradley Polytechnic Institute? I never knew. It was a long time ago that the name changed, it seems. Almost 20 years after this yearbook.
I grew up near/in that town. It kinda tripped me out when I saw all the schools the faculty listed.
@prehensile that makes sense. Most of them are relatively near Macomb, which kinda tracks given the time period.
@prehensile given that I have a t-shirt somewhere around here with one teacher's catchphrase on the front and a bingo card for another, it's fun to see that echo through time
@prehensile oh, hell yeah. My school (I went there 5-12) apparently got rid of a faculty quotes section in the yearbook sometime during my time there, because they moved it to the last issue of each year of the newspaper and made it a guessing game.
