1955 OLYMPIAN - the Faculty
(pssst! click on any scanned item to make sense of it)
Here is another experiment in blog posting, I don’t think it qualifies to be called a noble experiment or anything like that.
This is part of the 1955 OLYMPIAN, the Marietta High School yearbook. If all goes well I plan to, like a ferret, dig through this year book pulling out (or robbing) things I think will interest people that read this blog that were at Marietta High School at this time.
Right now, in future posts of the 1955 OLYMPIAN I only have plans to do the pictures of the students, one class at a time, but who knows what fragment of my brain might sparkle and copy something else in the book.
I plan to do the same with faculty and students with the other MHS years books up through 1960 (don’t count!).
The faculty is the focused group in this post. Of all the teachers in it I remember something about each of them… some are pleasant memories and some are bitter.
James Bailey was the principal in my first year. He seemed to be a nice guy. I hated to read, not too many years ago, that he was killed in car wreck, going the wrong way He was going to drug store to get the medicine that would have probably prevented the accident, but evidently, got confused.
I don’t think normally I will have show the “good luck” notes in the beginning and each end of the book because that, I think, is private. The writer thought he or she was writing a note to me only, not to an international audience. Well, to make them feel better, the audience is not all that big anyway. The reason I have this page because it has a couple of people on it that read this blog.. and two people called me Chicken-Fat. This was 54 years ago! Did they know something I didn't?
