KENWOOD CLASS PICTURE 1B 1A 1952 - 53rd Street Branch Portables
IN THOSE DAYS, KENWOOD SCHOOL HAD AT LEAST TWO BRANCHES, THE OTHER WAS IN A JEWISH TEMPLE NORTH OF 51ST ON GREENWOOD.

I’M THE ROUND FACE IN THE DARK T-SHIRT NEAR CENTER WHO LOOKS LIKE A SLAVIC IMMIGRANT.

MOST NAMES UNKNOWN HERE. TALL GIRL, FIRST ROW, IN PLAID WAS GEORGEANN. COFFEE-COLOR GIRL IN SAME ROW WITH PIG TAILS WAS PRUDENCE.

OUR TEACHER WAS MRS. NOLAN, A VERY KINDLY YET STRICT WOMAN.

MRS. DENNISON WAS ANOTHER EXCELLENT TEACHER AT BRADWELL, MUCH LIKED AND RESPECTED. SHE TAUGHT MATH. I DO WISH MOST TEACHERS HAD STEPPED IN FOR CLASS PICTURES AS MR KAZMIER DID.

I WAS GROWING LIKE A WEED, A RATHER SKINNY ONE, AT THIS TIME.

I RECALL AT SOME POINT IN MY FIRST YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL HAVING REACHED MY FULL HEIGHT OF 6 FEET-4 INCHES AND BEING 140 POUNDS, JUST ONE OF THOSE ODD FACTS WHICH LODGE PERMANENTLY IN YOUR BRAIN.
