1945 George Washington Carver High Yearbook Holds Lots of History
We've been on a quest to build our yearbook collection for a couple of years now and we have over 250 from various Cecil County Schools, though we're still working to fill gaps. Yesterday we filled one of those spots when Michael Cain, who is researching the Boddy family line in Port Deposit, mentioned that he has a 1945 yearbook from George Washington Carver High School in Elkton. When we told him how much we'd enjoy seeing one of those, in a flash Michael turned to his laptop and pulled up scans of the Carver Mirror from 1945. Then he offered a copy of the digitized edition to the Society. We were so excited about acquiring this volume that we immediately created a virtual exhibit so you may easily enjoy this valuable resource from your home. Go to ww.cchistory.org/yearbooks/index.htm and hit the button for George Washington Carver to enjoy this outstanding digital exhibit. We'd like to add more of these so keep us in mind if you have some and want to give them a permanent home.
Thanks Michael for the contribution. There is so much valuable information in yearbooks.
