This yearbook is another example of the Depression era yearbooks: softbound, short and comparatively few business ads.
U of D High (now called U of D Jesuit) has been in continuous existence since 1877, and is one of only 3 Catholic high schools currently in operation within the Detroit city limits.
Here are a few selections. And if the importance of the particular photos chosen is perhaps questionable, in some instances, remember that I am a Catholic Central grad.
This photo of the Student Spiritual Council was found on the title page of the "Organizations" section of the book. I don't know what room was used for this picture, but if the school had a dungeon at the time, I would guess this was it.
Public Speaking Reps. in Oratory, Declamation and Extemporaneous Speech. I love the double-breasted suits on Messrs. Bopp, Sommer and Boisvert. As fine a group of future G-Men as ever was.
U of D Monogram Club-1938. Membership restricted to Varsity lettermen. Great pic.
From a page with various student club group pictures, here are the members of the "Coop" club. As far as I can guess, this was either a Gary Cooper fan club, or a group of boys who raised chickens. As a CC alum, I am hoping it was the latter.
Wonderful composite of candid pictures. Note U of D had boxing in those days.
A scene from the Little Theatre production of "Leave It to Psmith", from the P G Wodehouse novel of the same name. As Wodehouse is my favorite author, I am very glad to include this picture.
Cub starting 11-great, great picture.
I liked this ad because of the prices, the kind of dated language (and because I worked selling suits during law school). It was only after I snipped this, did I notice the mistake.
