Willshire High School Junior Class, 1941-42

Below is a photo of Willshire High School’s Junior class, taken during the 1941-42 school year. My dad, Herb Miller, was a member of that class and you can see that he labeled this class photo.

In this photo my dad labeled some of his classmates by identifying the branch of the U.S. military they served in during WWII and who was married. He probably labeled the photo sometime after the war and before  April 1949. 

This was typical of my dad. He liked to label things and I am glad he did. Otherwise I would not know many of the people in the old photos he saved.
