1930’s memorabilia that falls into an additional graduation collection.

This vintage program has seniors setting sail.

Another graduation program.

Blue and white Grad 1B&W grad2What do kids nicknamed Bud, Petunia, Dink, Frenchy, and Flash list as their ambitions at graduation Circa 1939?

Quite a variety! As apparent on the Classmates autographs page.  Take a peek.

Literary Critic, Forester, Mrs., Teacher, Orchestra Leader, Aviatrix,

And Doctor, Surgical Nurse, Beauty Operator, and yes a Prune Peddler nicknamed Chick.  I quite enjoy the variety of responses, with more range in 1939 than I expected for young adults raised in the Depression. These sweet teens have hopes and dreams, and we can still see them. You know I love any snapshot of the past. Cool.

At the very end of this booklet, was a Personal Employability test.

B&W grad 5  Hmmm, how does this advice shake out 75 years later? What do you think?

And the last bit of this grad grouping is a card from a teacher.

An extra effort from a teacher, what a nice ending.
