Great for genealogical and other types of research, the St. Clair County (Michigan) Library system digitized a number of the county’s high school yearbooks. Some other student publications are included as well. Here is the link to these resources: http://www.sccl.lib.mi.us/Yearbooks.aspx.
While looking through one the other day I read about the “The Bluffers Club Ltd.,” and went through the “funnies” that followed. Many of these are found within the sponsor’s ads that follow the main body of this Student Christmas 1916 (Port Huron High School; no page numbers). The following excerpts were also posted at our Facebook page, and the image was created by PHAHPA for these posts.
Miss Richards (English IV): “Who was Roger Bacon?” M. Akers: “He was a good friar.”
Two small boys enrolled in the first grade and the teacher began to take the roll. “What is your name, little boy?” “Tom,” answered the child. “You should say Thomas” said the teacher. “What is your name?” she asked the next child, and he promptly replied, “Jackass.”
A good example of the world turned upside down, is Mark Collins getting 90 on a test.
Miss Lakin: “We are the survival of the fittest. Land knows what came before us.”
Bob Farr (Eng 3B): “Well, if another boy and I were having a fight, when we were nearing the end that would be a climax, wouldn’t it?” Prof. Lewis: “Well–that might be one for him.”
H. Parsons (in restaurant): “Do you serve crabs here?” H. Lane (waiter): “Sure! We serve all customers alike.”
Mr. Jones: “I gave a rainbow kiss to my wife when I left home this morning.” Mr. Smith: “What in the world is a rainbow kiss?” Mr. Jones: “One that follows a storm.”
