Note: This photo was taken from a scrapbook of pictures and articles relating to Salem and the biennial reunions held there for several years.  All the students listed here certainly attended Salem but the building in the background is definitely not the school building.  I have no explanation for this discrepancy.  The 'rows' are poorly defined and the individuals may be difficult to isolate.  Madelyne Warnhoff probably added the notes in the top and bottom margins. This 1914 class was honored at a 1971 Salem reunion and one copy of the photograph was marked "honoree class."
