I recently obtained a box of family photographs from my mother. In it I found a school group shot that I have determined contains many of the students from the graduating class of 1912 - including my great-aunt, Fern Cheshire.

The photo in my great aunt's handwriting is a list of names. It appears that she was working on a class reunion sometime in the 1960's - perhaps a 50 year reunion. She has made comments as to places of residence, whether deceased, and married names of female students. Listed below are the names of the students as transcribed from her notes.
