Taylor, Texas has one high school, and back in 1920 they called their yearbook "The Cotton Boll."
The yearbook is packed with sincerity, and the fun that the class of 1920 had together in "the happiest days of [their] lives" shines through.
The faculty page used a really scary font, which looks particularly gothic naming PRINCIPAL YOUNGBLOOD.
Each graduating senior got a rhyme written about them by Ms. Ennola Robertson.
I like the looks of Beth Beck.
Ralph Marek was the tallest of the seniors and was mighty dandy as well.
Those seniors obviously had a pretty good time:
But it actually looks like the juniors might have had more fun.
The freshmen were awkward, then and now and forevermore.
This explanation of what the junior subjects are actually about is very helpful.
All the seniors got caricatures depicting their future lives in 1935.
"A Sly Little Widow"
"Miss. Burgett — Matron of the New York Jail"
There were also math poems (!) and a breakdown of busted dreams throughout the years (!!).
I don't even know what this is.
Predictions were a big thing.
This section is a whole list of students, their nicknames, occupations, appearance, ambition, and "what each will likely be."
"Perrie Mae Offield / Pete / Flirting with Joe / Not very tall / To be a dietician / Owner of a candy kitchen"
"Annette Fritz / Fritzy / Laughing all time / Plain / To marry a Texas / Wife of a Californian"
"Carl Mares / Rusty / Entertaining the class / Little but loud / To be cute / He is"
