Elsie Richards, Class of 1931

Randy Hunt (class of ’73) came across 2 treasures in some items that he picked up at an auction and delivered to NHSAA. One is a book called “Memories of my School Days” given to Elsie Richards (class of 1931) from Adaline Richards. It includes Elsie's notes about the Class of 1931 – the school, class colors (yellow and white), officers, faculty, classes, autographs, pictures, clippings. Reflecting thoughts from nearly 80 years ago, the notes are presented below:

"On September 12, 1927, war was declared and the class of “31” entered Newark High School as freshmen. There were 97 of us all husky and healthy and in sound mind. We were not the usual green, scared-looking mob that quivers when it meets an upper classman. We were vital – we were real and we have become more so as time has gone on. Our class was the first class in the history of our high school to receive diplomas at the end of the 9th grade for the completion of three years of junior high school work. We are like that, always starting something!

On September 10, 1928, our Sophomore year began and we kept up our good work only better. We were rapidly winning everybody’s respect and admiration. On November 2 the Home Economics girls had a Halloween party out in “Vi” Frazer’s barn with a straw ride going and coming and heaps of fun all around – on; those were the days, there’s no doubt about it. "
