1947: Kuser Annex "CRIER"

Imagine if you will, a sixty year old mimeographed newsletter which has been ravaged by age. Take one of those antiques, scan it to the computer, and with the magic of computer technology, all the tears, stains, discoloration, and fading print can be brought back to life, even better than the originals, and printed on much higher quality paper. Here is a page featuring one of my favorite "Kuser Kids,"Charlotte Wilson (Colye) with whom I went from Reception Grade to 12th grade at Hamiton High. The reprinted graphic is from the Christmas, 1947 edition of the Kuser Annex monthly newspaper, the "CRIER." We read once again about the life we lived back there a Freshmen at Kuser Annex, a group of Hamilton Class of 1951 students who attended ninth grade on the second floor of our much loved Kuser School. Here again, generations of the future will be able to access these files at the Hamilton Library's Local History Collection and see how grandma and grandpa or great grandma and great grandpa spent their educational years in the middle of the 20th century!
