I love yearbooks!

Looking at high school and college yearbooks from decades ago is an exciting thing to do. When I could look back and see how my parents looked as teenagers in the 70s with their huge afros, bell bottom pants and pictures of them in sports or other activities, it makes me wish I grew up in that era. At Clinton’s Quisenberry Public Library, the geneaology room has a small collection of yearbooks and the branch is asking for more. The library is hoping to generate a large collection for people to use in family history research and create a hub for Clinton schools, colleges and universities to be represented. It’s all about local history, and it can be found in a yearbook. Nice and sophisticated hair styles and outfits, unique student clubs, autographs on pictures and business ads of present and long-gone merchants. To donate a yearbook, call project leader Richard Puckett at (601) 966-0333 or email him at rchpuc@aol.com
