Rixford School (1907)

This is a list of individuals on the rear of a photograph of Rixford School, dated Sept. 3, 1907. The majority of the writing is in the handwriting in pencil of Margaret Frances “Fannie” Mobley (later McElveen) who was the 19-year-old teacher of the children. The Principal of the school was Professor Earl Boyd.

Several of the names were written over in ink by an unknown writer and are easy to read. Some of the names in pencil are difficult or impossible to read.
