Book from the First District Normal School in Kirksville, MO. Provided by Charlotte Belden - Moberly, MO
Charlotte purchased the 1912 Bulletin Book from the First District Normal School in Kirksville,
MO at an antique store. It is almost like a yearbook of sorts,
with Faculty & Students enrolled from June 1911 to June 1912.
It also has many photos of students. She will be glad to do
lookups from this book.
