1916 City of Newport Grammar Graduation

With a Picture of the Students from the Coddington School

The picture has numbers inked on each person, however, I didn't find the key. The only one I know is number 60 and because he's listed as a graduate of Coddington Grammar School in 1916, I expect that the rest are from the same school and year. More students graduated from the school that year than are pictured. The scan was split into four sections, from left to right, so that the images could be made larger for better identification. If you recognize anyone please let me know.

Section 1; Section 2; Section 3; Section 4.

The graduation program for June 22, 1916 has been scanned. On the cover teachers and school committee members are listed: Dudley E. Campbell; Jennie W. Mackie; Annie E. Caswell; Clarence A. Carr; Rebecca T. Bosworth; Henry C. Stevens, Jr.; Rev. Emery H. Porter, D.D.; Christopher F. Barker, M.D.; Thomas B. Congdon; William W. Covell; William R. Harvey; Anna F. Hunter; John P. Sullivan; Robert C. Bacheller; William P. Clarke; William J. Cozzens; William A. Sherman, M.D.; Herbert Warren Lull.

Katherine Gullette wrote on July 1, 2006, that Nina Gertrude Belyea is her grandmother. "I think the locket she has on is in my possession at this time. Her name is listed among the graduates: Nina Gertrude Belyea. She was born in 1900 on April 25th. At age 17 she joined the U.S. Navy and became one of the first women in the Navy, A “Yeomanette”."
