There are a couple of quick lessons from this 1941 high school year book picture of my aunt sitting at her classroom desk at Gridley High School in Gridley, Illinois.
- Yearbooks are not just for students. Teachers, administrators, and other staff members may have their pictures or other information included in them.
- OCR reading of text may not interpret names correctly. In this case, the automatic reading of the text thought her last name was “Habben-Homemaking.” It was just Habben.
We could add “keep your desk clean” as another tip, but for many of us that’s a lost cause.
