School days 50 years ago

As the 2021-22 school year starts, we think it’s appropriate to publish a photo taken 50 years ago of the third grade class at Eugene Field Elementary.

Betty Johnson was the teacher. The photo was contributed to WCAGS by one of the students, Brad Spencer.


Sentinel bound volumes are now in the Genealogy Room

The WCAGS has accepted ownership of the complete collection of bound volumes of the Webb City Sentinel, from 1983 (after the fire) until the final issue on Dec. 30, 2020.

Those issues can also be viewed on microfilm, along with much older issues.
