I have transcribed the following pages from “The Crescent
Hand-Book 1935-1936”, which was the publication of Crescent
Springs High School, Kenton County Kentucky. This little booklet
has been in our family for years. It has a red cover and contains
sixteen pages. It is mimeographed and is about six inches by
four inches. Some of the pages are very hard to read, thus my
transcription of names might not be totally accurate, but hopefully
My main thrust was to transcribe the pages that contained
the students and teachers names, so as to hopefully trigger
the readers to dig for more good “stuff” that hides
in old shoe boxes and trunks, in those out of the way corners
of closets and attics.
The school enrollment was 475 students with 5 special students
in classes from Kindergarten through the Twelfth Grade. School
started September 9th and Thanksgiving was the 28th and the
29th of November. The school was closed for Christmas from December
20 to January 6th, with the last day of school the 29th of May.
The teacher’s daily schedules with class times noted
are also given. The first classes started at 8:45 and the last
class started at 2:45. It is interesting to see what they studied
throughout the day, in those days. Mr. Jasper taught Nat. Sc.
and Phys. Ed., Nat. Sc. 9 and Nat. Sc.8. Mr Caywood had study
classes. Mr. Mahan had classes in Math. 7, Math 8, Math 9, Study,
Eng 8, and Math 10. Mr. Gilliland had Social Sc. 8, Study, Nat.Sc.
9, Nat.Sc. 10, Nat. Sc. Lab, Soc. Sc 7, and Soc.Sc. 12. Miss
Mathews had Soc.Sc. 11, Soc. Sc. 9, Study, French 11, French
12, Soc. Sc.9, and Sc. 10. Mr. Carter taught Man.Arts 9, Man.Arts
12, Man.Arts 8, Man Arts 7, and Man,Arts 11. Miss Giles Eng.
10, Eng 9, Library, Eng 7, Study, and Eng.9. Mr. Heinrich had
Typing 12, Shorthand 12, Bookkeeping, Typing 11, Typing 12
Other pages of interest contain the Basketball and Football
schedules. In basketball, Crescent played Bellevue, Florence,
Newport, Highlands, Erlanger, Covington, Ludlow, New Cath. and
Dayton. In football, they tussled with Bellevue, Dayton, Ludlow,
Erlanger and Highlands.
Hope you enjoy---and by all means----have fun----I do
