A Sampling of The Pages of 1945 Burro

World War II affected everyone in our country. Those in Mineral Wells were no exception. It was a time of hardship and sacrifice and it found its way into the yearbooks of MWHS. There are several things about this little 1945 book that seems to say to me that the school was "making some sacrifices" when they published it.

The first thing that stands out is the typeface used on the pages, and then the pages that are dedicated to honoring our military. The wonderful maroon cover is adorned with an emblem of our flag and the bald eagle.

"The Burro"
These are just a few selected pages from one of the donated 1945 yearbooks belonging to the 50 Year Club. It has no name inside and I have not been able to determine who the original owner was or who gave it to the club. Please click on the pictures to make them larger. You may even see one of your ancestors there!

Pictures of the Senior Class of 1945 to come!

    Judy you are doing such a wonderful job as Historian and thanks for posting all these blogs. Hope everyone will check out the Scrapbooks samples for the Class of 1960.

  2. Ditto! Theresa & I tried to have lunch but it didn't work. We were both off to separate trips to the Texas gulf, so maybe if we get together for her June & my August birthday before July's over you could meet us too & anyone else that's available. Mom & I are enjoying the fresh snapper (blackened's my fav). Take care!

  3. So much enjoy reading and viewing your work Judy.

  4. Great job, Judy. Thanks for all you do.
