Veterans Memorial Index Created By KHS Students
KHS students in the school's Web Page Design class recently completed an online index for |
the new Adair County Veterans Memorial.

The students, under the direction of KHS teacher Randy Reynolds, entered the names of more
than three thousand Adair County veterans into a data base that arranges the names alphabetically.

Hi we are looking for any information on a Kirksville High school teacher.  Her name was Effie Morrey and she is my husband's great aunt. Any information would be greatly appreciated. 
Thank You

Mark acquired a copy of 

  1. the Kirksville high school 1916 yearbook (The Tigris).  This was the "third annual" printed by the H. S.  It contains names and photos of 61 seniors, 53 juniors and 50 sophomores, plus the faculty members.  A large advertising section contains ads from 66 businesses, as well.

  2. And a copy of the 1920 high school yearbook, the "Tigris," which lists 75 seniors. 
    One unusual feature is a page titled "Honor Roll," which names 123 people who evidently were Kirksville H.S. alumni who had served in the armed forces.

  3. And the 1927 Tigris, which lists 124 seniors.  I'll be glad to do "look ups" for anyone interested.  Oddly, the artwork through this book depicts Dutch people in wooden shoes, Dutch canal boats, windmills, etc.  But there's no explanation for the
    fascination with Holland that year.

    He will be glad to do "lookups" for anyone interested in the contents of these interesting books.

Yeah, every body has aged except me ! ! !
While waiting for my first appointment in the reception room of a new dentist, I noticed his certificate, which bore his full name.  Suddenly, I remembered that a tall, handsome boy with the same name had been in my high school class some 50 years ago.  Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was too old to have been my  classmate.  After he had examined my teeth, I asked him if he  had  attended the local high school.  "Yes," he replied. "When did you graduate?" I asked.  He answered, "In 1953.  "Why, you were in my class!" I exclaimed.  He looked at me closely and then asked,  "What did you teach?"
