Someone Found a High School Yearbook from 1913 & Put it Online

Earlier this year, reddit user averagedekutree was browsing through a book store in Milwaukee when she came across a century-old high school yearbook from 1913. The high school was called Texarkana in Arkansas, and flipping through the pages is like taking a step through time.

What’s fascinating is to observe both the differences and parallels. Sure the fashion is different but there were clubs, sports teams and plays and students still had nicknames 🙂 There are even advertisements for local businesses like Offenhauser & Co. Insurance that are still in operation today!

Apparently Editor-in-chief ‘Fritter’ wasn’t much of a dancer!

Poor Bryant had the unfortunate nickname of ‘Martha’. Reddit user ExtraNoise looked up Dex and found the following:
