Somerset High School Yearbook, 1917


Dear researchers,

I am pleased to provide this information from the Somerset High School yearbook of 1917. I had no relatives in this class. My uncle Arthur James Bradshaw was a member of the class of 1918. My mother Catherine Elizabeth Bradshaw was a member of the class of 1922 or 1923.

If you would like a xerox of the page with any senior's photo, I will provide one free of charge if you send a SASE. If you think you know others at the school who may be mentioned (freshmen, sophomores, juniors, staff members) I will do look-ups as well.

Feel free to ask general questions about Somerset as well. I lived in Somerset for a while in the 1950's but did not attend Somerset High.

Sincerely, Annabel (McCauley) Schaupner <aschaup@umich.edu>
