Emmitsburg High School Yearbook, 1928

Emmitsburg MD High School, 1928 Posted by Picasa

The Emmitsburg Broadcaster features the Class of 1928 and also contains a class history starting from 1924, listing boys and girls who had to drop out and sometimes a reason. Besides the individual photos of the graduates of 1928, the Broadcaster also contains class photos of the classes of 1929, 1930, and 1931. There are team and faculty photos as well. Some wonderful old pages filled with Frederick County Maryland's children of 1928.
