Someone Found a High School Yearbook from 1913 and Put it Online
Earlier this year, reddit user averagedekutree was browsing through a book store in Milwaukee when she came across a century-old high school yearbook from 1913. The high school was called Texarkana in Arkansas, and flipping through the pages is like taking a step through time.
What’s fascinating is to observe both the differences and parallels. Sure the fashion is different but there were clubs, sports teams and plays and students still had nicknames :) There are even advertisements for local businesses like Offenhauser & Co. Insurance that are still in operation today!
Apparently Editor-in-chief ‘Fritter’ wasn’t much of a dancer!
Poor Bryant had the unfortunate nickname of ‘Martha’. Reddit user ExtraNoise looked up Dex and found the following:
- She married a man named William Charles Clark on June 26, 1916 in Texarkana
- They had a daughter in 1918. They named her Laura Lee
- In 1924, William Charles (W.C.) Clark was born
- By 1930 they were living in Shreveport
- In 1940, in addition to their 21 year old daughter, they also had living with them a 22 year old woman named Tommie Lee Midden
