Garrison School class, Gr 4/5, Kinkaid,Thompson
This is a class from Garrison School, in the 1960s (would probably be the 61-62 school year, or the 63-64, or the 65-66 as the interval years are already pictured. The teachers are Miss Kinkaid (dark hair) and Nettie Thompson. Please see the other photos I've posted with the same teacher/s at the same school, different years (look under special collections, School Days). Two are id.ed as 4th and 5th grades, so I presume the others are also. This was the only one in the group that was undated and unlabelled with the children's names. I thought I would list it anyway because a researcher might like to compare it with the others, or find a familiar face. This photo was part of a lot of photos received from a person in Kansas, who got them from another person who collected them from numerous estate sales throughout Kansas and Oklahoma.
I did a web search for a Garrison School in Kansas or Oklahoma and there seem to be several. I have written to one. There are also others across the US and Canada. I can't guarantee which one it might be. If anyone can tell me, I would be delighted. Also, it may be in the same district or county as a “Cleaveland School” which is mentioned on one of the class photos.
(I believe Miss Kinkaid was the main teacher and Ms Thompson was the secondary as the photos were ordered "Kinkaid 22")
Mystery: -The location of the school. - the exact school year. - the names of the children. See other photos in this school collection to compare.
