Here's a great example of the neighborhood school concept.
The students pictured are known to many old timers in the Kuser neighborhood. Indeed, that young man on the far left in the second row is my brother, Len, now in his 81st year. Over the years, I have received mail from Ms. Volz. Betty Johnson, shown in the first row, was one of brother Len's grammar school "crushes."

CHANCES ARE THERE ARE A NUMBER OF VIEWERS OF THIS SITE WHO HAVE RELATIVES OR FRIENDS WHO ARE IN THESE MANY OLD KUSER SCHOOL PHOTOS. IF YOU DO RECOGNIZE ANYONE, PLEASE FORWARD THE INFORMATION TO ME FOR INCLUSION IN THE HAMILTON LIBRARY'S "KUSER SCHOOL" FOLDER. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
These kids preceded me by three years at Kuser. As can be seen in the photo, classes were fairly large during that era. Of course, I recognize many of the members, including Dick Soffel, Bob Reed, Rudy Goehrig, Gladys Dilts, Dorothy Glover (Yup, my big sister), and....well, you get the idea.... BASED ON THE SMALL SIZE OF THE PHOTO, I WILL RE-SCAN IT IN TWO SEGMENTS. STAY TUNED.
I HAVE AN INCREDIBLE SERIES OF VINTAGE KUSER SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHS WHICH WERE DESTINED FOR THE RECYCLE BIN IN MY COLLECTION. THIS DIGITIZED VIEW OF THE KUSER SCHOOL ORCHESTRA, 1931 IS JUST ONE OF THEM. THE DIGITAL GEM HAS BEEN FILED IN THE "KUSER SCHOOL" FOLDER IN THE HAMILTON LIBRARY'S LOCAL HISTORY COLLECTION., NOTE THE KNICKERS ON THE BOYS! IF ANY VIEWER RECOGNIZES ANY OF THE SUBJECTS IN THE PHOTO, I SURE WOULD LIKE TO INCLUDE THE INFORMATION IN THE LIBRARY FOLDER.
