Glen Davis and I spent some serious hard time in the hall of Ralph Witters Elementary during this school year. This picture is a real treat!
This school year has haunted me all my life. I didn't get off to a good start in this class and I wonder if that poor performance dogged me the remainder of my school years?

Remember TP'ing Mr. Pfaff's house on Halloween? He'd invite the kids to trick or treat and TP his tree and he'd serve hot cider.
Then he'd invite everyone back the next day to clean up the mess. One of my fondest memories as an adult is when I sat next to him in the VFW club drinking
a beer and talking about school and old times.  I was in my late 20's at the time and he asked me to call him George.
He even paid for the beer! I felt so grown up! He was a good man!

COMMENT:

I'd just like to point out the evolution of images you see on this page. From hand processed in a lab black & white prints to machine made color prints.
Add to that the digital scanner I used to transfer the images to digital files. As a photographer, I'm now photographing class pictures with my
12mp digital camera and putting those images on a website that night to be viewed by the world. The things we've seen in fifty plus years!

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS:

  My heartfelt thanks to Mary Esther Frix-Bell and Joanie Selby for sending some great scans of their class photos
and identifying most of the students in the class groups.

(I had SUCH a crush on Mary Esther in the 5th grade!)

 

NEW ADDITIONS!

2010- The new addition of the Hill School Kindergarten and 1st Grade pictures come from Joanie Selby.
She tells me she attended Hill School Kindergarten thru 2nd grade and moved down to Ralph Witters Elementary in 3rd grade.
She said, "My family lived on 13th Street, the strange house with the flat roof". "Chuck Allard is my cousin and I am a long time family friend with Chuck Emerson".
Chuck Emerson contacted me and located himself in Mrs. McNiff's Kindergarten, Ms. Tschiffely's 2nd grade, and Mrs. Hayek's 4th grade class. My thanks to Chuck and Joanie!

2007 -Muchas Gracias to Annette Arthur-Juvan and Connie Gifford Kennerknecht for their gracious loan of all the prints I used to make class photos. 
We are blessed by their friendship and commitment to the Class Flame!

Warmest thanks go out to Ruby Smith and Kathy Kleeman for their contribution of a 7th grade class photo and editing class groups for accuracy.

It's pleasing to know the site is being viewed and reviewed!
