The graduation exercises were held in the ZCBJ Hall -- presumably the Table Rock ZCBJ Hall, which is now occupied by the Opera House Museum. ZCBJ bought the Opera House, probably in the early 1920s.
mary snabl's photo album
Mary's album has 28 pages. The pictures progress from when she and her class were high school sophomores and then jump to class reunions in 1956 and after, including the 40th Class Reunion in 1972 and the 50th in 1982. They then revert to earlier school pictures with the Class of 1932 in the 8th grade and as Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors.
