Webb City elementary teachers from the 1943-44 school year

Webb City Area Genealogical Society

We found this nice handmade poster of 1943-1944 grade school teachers and principals in our archives at the Webb City Area Genealogical Society.  Here are their names:

Franklin School, back row: Mrs. Anna Ruth Thoman; Mrs. Dorothy Crandall. Front: Mrs. Emma Morgan, principal.

West Side School, back row: Mrs. Fern Brown, principal; Mrs. Emma K. Crane. Front row: Mrs. Warren Stout; Miss Bernita Lewis.

Eugene Field, back row: Miss Goldie Burton, principal; Miss Marjorie Sandford; Mrs. Ella Moudy.  Front row: Miss Norma Reid; Mrs. Dorsey Watson; Miss Allene Bates.

Webster School, back row: Miss Fern Mosby, Mrs. Lloyd Buehner, principal; Miss Pearl Venable. Front row: Miss Jennie Lowe; Mrs. Anna B. Hatcher; Miss Edith Lowe.

We found their names using the 1943-1944 yearbook, which included a calendar much like those of today. 

By the way, commencement for Webb City High School seniors of 2022 will be Friday, May 13.
