Contributed by Janine McCoy


The scanned images below were contributed by a site visitor who only recently discovered this site. Janine McCoy has forwarded a copy of the 1929 Mid-Year Graduation from Academy High School. Her mother, Doris Kessler, was a member of this class. Doris lived at 152 E. 29th Street, just one block from Academy. Janine was born in 1950 and raised in Buffalo, but visited Erie every summer, staying several weeks with her grand parents. She relates that a few times she went to shows at the Stadium. Even if she didn't go, she could hear the music and applause/cheering from her grand parents house. Her last visit was in 1967 when her grandfather died. Doris Kessler died in 1979.

The names included on the scanned images have been transcribed by Bill Klauk.
