Oh, how times have changed (thankfully!). I found this little nugget in The Gazette, a publication of Monessen High School in Monessen, Pennsylvania. So in honor of Women's History Month and Pi Day (a little late), I thought I'd post this for some laughs. I wonder which high school student wrote this ... and wish that he could see what his female descendants are doing today!
An interesting side-note about how I found a few pages from this high school publication. I was searching in The Monessen Daily Independent on Ancestry.com (you know how I love old newspapers) for any articles about my grandmother, Agnes Speck who graduated in 1933.
I found that there are a few issues between 1933 and 1935 that have the first page of The Gazette and then the remaining pages of the issue are from The Monessen Daily Independent. I'm not sure where the glitch, happened, but it I was able to find a mention of my grandmother in one of the issues!
