Cambridge Iowa High School Graduates List

Both of our books contain listings of the Graduates of Cambridge High School by year from 1892 to 1961 along with a few of unknown year.  The second book, Cambridge, Iowa: 150 Years of Education in Cambridge and Union Township, Story County, Iowa, also has class pictures for many of the classes.  To help you and us better use these resources, we are creating a  list by name.

While this is just getting underway, we would like to show you the current format for your comments.  It is sorted by name with columns for last name, first name, year, and whether or not a photo is available.  The photos only refer to the Senior Class pictures we have, not any of our other sources.  There is also a column for notes (not shown below) which might include items such as married name.  The listing as Needed under photos means we do not have a class picture.  The earliest one we have is 1911 and there are some gaps in the early years.  Does anyone know when Senior Class photos were begun in Cambridge or in general?

Please let us know if you think this will be useful.  And what would make it more useful for you and the community.

The list in our books comes thanks to the work of Lois Whitney, one of our early members and a longtime supporter of the Cambridge Alumni Association.
