HERE ARE THREE OF MY CLASSMATES AT KUSER ANNEX IN 1948 (HHS '51). TO THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW ABOUT KUSER ANNEX, IT WAS HERE THAT KIDS IN THE LIBERTY-NEWKIRK-HAMILTON-CEDAR LANE AREA ATTENDED OUR 9TH GRADE BEFORE GOING OVER TO HAMILTON HIGH TO BEGIN OUR SOPHOMORE YEAR.

Another document which I consider to be of historic interest. Why? Simply because it gives a very good idea of the tools of the trade which were in use back in the early years of our Hamilton educational system. I looked in vain for printer cartridges, copy paper, ball point pens, and other school necessities, but found none! I did note a requisition for pen holders. Hmmm, that must be one of those new fangled writing instruments that they dip in that glass bottle with a black bakelite top with a swivel opening....I think they call it an inkwell.....must be the forerunner of today's inkjets.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN: I GIVE YOU THE CLASS PHOTO FROM THE CLASS OF 1937, KUSER SCHOOL. AS I HAVE STATED MANY TIMES, KUSER IS A "NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOL," AND I RECOGNIZE MANY OF THOSE IN THE PHOTO AS BEING MY NEIGHBORS BACK IN MY YOUTH.
Would you believe that this rare treasure from one of Hamilton Township's most revered educators was destined for the trash bin? Thanks to then-Superintendent Al DeMartin, I was allowed to preserve these documents for posterity, Why in the world would anyone consider trashing this historical material? Sadly, there is probably still material stored away in the dark closets around Hamilton Township's many buildings, but they are not appreciated for their historic value, and will ultimately and quietly be placed in the recycle bin. SAD!
Hey, that's my little brother Donny down there in the 3rd row, far left! And there's his buddy Donny Bargholz on the opposite side, next to that poor young lady whose photo is torn off! Does anyone from that class (HHS '57) have a complete copy of this photo? If so, would you scan it and send it to me so I can post it?

A TOM GLOVER REMINDER FOR NEWCOMERS
If this is your first venture to my "Unofficial" Kuser School website, welcome!
1) THE GRAPHICS CAN BE ENLARGED BY CLICKING THE IMAGE. IT WILL OPEN FULL SIZE. IF YOU ARE USING AN EARLIER VERSION OF INTERNET EXPLORER, WAIT FOR THE BLUE AND GOLD ICON WHICH WILL APPEAR TO THE LOWER RIGHT OF THE GRAPHIC.
2) IF YOU WANT TO EMAIL ANY OF THE GRAPHICS TO YOURSELF OR YOUR FRIENDS, LOOK DOWN TO THE RIGHT AND SEE THE LITTLE ENVELOPE ICON. CLICK ON IT AND FILL IN THE BLANKS.
3) YOU WILL NOTE THAT THERE IS A "COMMENTS" OPTION NEAR THE ABOVE-MENTIONED ENVELOPE ICON. IF YOU HAVE ANY, BY ALL MEANS SEND THEM IN.
AS THIS SITE GROWS, YOU WILL PROBABLY SEE INFREQUENT DUPLICATE GRAPHICS; IGNORE THEM....THEY ARE OBVIOUSLY THERE AS A RESULT OF A MALADY I HAVE ACQUIRED WHICH IS KNOWN AS A "SENIOR MOMENT!"
