Souvenir booklet of the Class of 1940 at the high school or academy in Calais, Maine, with handwritten activities and names, plus a program for Class Day, 1940, held at the Gymnasium, Tuesday, June 11. The souvenir booklet was filled out by graduate Erma O. Ayer.
The cover of the souvenir booklet is shown above. It was printed by the Thomas D. Murphy Company of Red Oak, Iowa, with spaces for graduates to write in activities and classmates' names. Below, inside front cover and tissue covering the title page:
The Class Day Program is still inside, though unglued. Scroll down a few images for views of the Class Day Program - it's interesting because it contains names of some of the graduates.
The next two pages, below, are entitled Festivities and Activities. The Festivities page apparently had something glued to it at one time, but it's missing. The Activities page has some handwritten entries.
The next 4 pages, in two images, show 4 pages of classmates' names, all appearing to be in Erma's handwriting.
Teachers: Mr. Fred A. Tarbox; Mr. Harland L. Keay; Miss Mary E. Bates; Miss Elspeth N. Larner; Miss Mary H. Fleming (Best of All); Mrs. Laura P. Jackman; Miss Phyllis M. Dimitre; Mr. Merle C. Brown; Miss Eleanor Andrews; Miss Agnes C. Fleming; Marguerite Wilson; William O'Neill; Mr. Scovil; Miss McPherson; Mr. Hamilton; Miss Murchie; Miss Hanson; Mr. Hitchens; Miss Walker; Miss Cole
The next image, below, shows the last page, which carries a printed message from George B. Bates, The Diamond Store, Calais, Maine, and the tissue covering the blank inside back cover:
The next two images are of the Class Day Program, too long for just one scan:
Hopefully you've found this memento meaningful. Thanks for stopping by!
