The 1944 yearbook of my alma mater, Detroit Catholic Central is now on-line and can be found by clicking this link.
Although the cover and introductory pages look like something out of a Fifties Rod Serling Twilight Zone episode, there is much in this book that reflects the World War II years. I imagine that a high percentage of these CC grads went into the Service right after Commencement-which occurred the same month the Allies landed at Normandy.
The drama department presented "Arsenic and Old Lace". Students visited backstage at Detroit's Cass Theater and picked up pointers from Boris Karloff who was playing the role of "Jonathan" in a road company production of the play in Detroit.
Catholic Central remembers its graduates who gave their lives in the service of their country in World War II.
Some great photos of the Detroit Catholic Central championship football team.
