Take Me Back-Waitsfield High School Class of 1923
My last four Take Me Back articles were about the Waitsfield High School graduating class of 1952. I found their yearbook at Joslin Library, and it was exciting to me because we Mehurons had family in it -- a teacher and one of the seniors. Studying the book made me remember that I had seen another old yearbook buried somewhere in our family pictures and papers. It took a while to find. But there it was, “The Annual,” published by the Waitsfield High School Class of 1922/23. The students included in the volume would have been part of the generation that could have been parents of some of the Class of 1952. For example, senior Anne Mehuron was in the 1952 “Mad River Echoes” and her father, Elmer Mehuron, and aunt, Ruth Mehuron, were in the 1923’s “The Annual.”
