Photographs requested of eighth-grade classes Did you participate in eighth-grade graduation in Clay County? Did your parents or grandparents? If so, Marion Kryger would like to visit with you. Kryger is gathering pictures of eighth-grade graduations and is beginning a project of identifying them. Even if you did not graduate with the eighth-grade, you might be able to help identify some of the people.
The ceremonies were held in the spring from 1896 until 1970 and included all of Clay County students graduating the eighth-grade. If you have in your possession a picture of an eighth-grade class, Kryger would like to copy it for the records.
He is working with the Clay County Historical Society. The results of this documentation will be presented in a folder to be kept in the Historical Society records for research of families in Clay County.
If you would like to contribute to this project, call Kryger at 605-624-4525.
