Readers have been enjoying the rural school photographs which ran a few weeks ago. This week we move to the city and present a 1908 photograph of the Junior Class at Albion High School, the Class of 1909. This photograph was published in the school paper, The Breeze, but no names were identified.
We have however been able to identify several in this photograph, which came to us via Frances (Warner) Ray. Front row (left to right): No. 1 is Clark Bishop Ray; number 4 is Brockway Dickie. Second row, No. 7 is Wilhemina Schumacher (Mrs. John Geyer). Third row, number 7 is Joseph W. Choate. Top row, No. 1 is Stuard Franklin Cooper, No. 4 is Roy Franklin Doyle, No. 6 is James Alfred Cuatt, and No. 7 is possibly Louis Wochholz. If you recognize others, let me know.
The Class of 1909 when they graduated a year later consisted of: Duane Allen, Flossie Bangham, Mildred Clift Brown, Phoebe Broxholm, Grace Carson, Edith Clay, Clara Clough, Juliet Comstock, Stuart Cooper, Pearl Crippen, James Cuatt, Joseph Choate, Roy Doyle, Grace Durrin, Muriel Everts, Edith Foskit, Mildred Gibbs, William Gildart, Howard Granger, Mabel Graves, Marjorie Griffin, Edna Humphrey, Eva Lamont, Louise Ludlow, Grace Mulvaney, Dow Nagle, Raymond Pilcher, Florence Poirier, Clark Ray, Erma Reed, Carl Smith, Leta Marie Smith, Wayne Smith, Wilhemina Schumacher, Perry Staples, Frances Stem, John Tomlinson, Lulu Tubbs, Charles Warner, and Louis Wochholz. One member of the class, Stuart Cooper, was killed during World War I in the service.
