Linnwood School Graduates
ca. 1923 / 1924

I found the follow newspaper clipping in my grandmothers scrapbook and thought it may be a good research tool for others. I am not positive of the date but would be about 1923/24, using the birth dates of my Aunt Lillian Faulkner & her brother, my Uncle Wilbur Faulkner (both graduates listed in the article). What may appear to be a typographical error on my part on
names is actually the way the name appears in the article.  Respectfully submitted by Judy Critchlow
