WHAT A RARE FIND!!!!! This is an original 1927 edition of the Wilmore (Kansas) High School year book.....SCREECH OWL. The first year book came out in 1926.....making this the second one. A friend of mine bought this recently at an area auction......how it got to Arkansas is unknown. Its cover (fair condition)is basically heavier blue stock paper that apparently was hand colored/decorated with the SCREECH OWL logo. The 32 inside pages appear to be professional printed and are in outstanding condition. Then, apparently, the year book was put together locally and distributed to the students. All pages are numbered 27......year of publication. The faculty consisted of a principal and four teachers. There were 10 seniors, 7 juniors, 14 sophomores, and 9 freshmen......penciled writing indicates the sophomore and freshman photos were switched. Activities and athletics list basketball(boys' and girls') and music. There are 7 interesting pages of advertising........phone numbers consisted of only 1 or 2 digits. NOTE - Inside the year book was a old 8 1/2" x 6 1/2" photo ......possibly of the entire student body....nothing identified..... that I am also including. This is a great piece of history. I accept Paypal.

NOTE - Here is a list of some of the last names mentioned: BAKER, BARBER, BIGBEE, BOLES, BOOTH. BOWDEN, CRAIG, CUMMINGS,
