PALMER HIGH SCHOOL

AUTOGRAPH BOOK

 

CLASS AUTOGRAPHS BOOK

Palmer High School

1934-1939

This Class Autographs book was originally owned by Helen Evelyn Glause of Palmer, Merrick County, Nebraska.
It contains entries from many of her school mates, friends and family between the years 1934-1939. I have left the pages in order as they have appeared in the autograph book to keep its natural history in place. There will be spelling errors thru out the transcription, as I kept the spelling as it was written in the book. A few of the names were difficult to read, so you may find errors. If you know the correct name or spelling, please send the information so it may be corrected. Email me at FamTreeGrl@aol.com.

I hope all of you enjoy this piece of my history, and of yours, as much as I have. I am pleased to be able to share it with all you. Nebraska will always have a very special place in my heart. No matter where I live, I will always be a Nebraskan at heart.

Owned and transcribed by her grand-daughter, Karla Archuleta. These contents may not be used on any other websites without my permission. January 16, 2002
