The Fifties

Introduction: Some people consider fifty years to be a cut-off point what contsitutes history. We can now begin viewing the 1950’s as history. For this decade we have many of the same types of documents and visual artifacts which have been used to record other decades. There are pictures from the annuals, but there is also a selection of pictures and documents found in the various class scrapbooks kept class historians. From these we have been able to include some press clippings and photos. A scrapbooks fro the “Girl’s League” of the decade also proved to be a wonderful record of the era.
