Mystery Picture
(originally posted January 05, 2009)

This "rediscovered" picture was found during our semi-annual website
maintenance...actually the picture itself was found behind one of our
scanners. 01/12/09 - We now know that Richard Glover owns this picture.
(Additional details below).

The second mystery is where was this picture taken? Although the
date on the picture is November 1962, this looks like the Classmates
are at a teacher's house during a spring outing...grass looks freshly
cut and the kids are wearing shorts. Back in those days as John mentioned
in the Extracurricular Activities page "for younger kids, or when we were
 in middle school, we had our June picnic at the teachers home".

First row, l to r: Lewis Suggs, next two are unknowns (maybe Jim Gibbs
and Brian Brizendine?), Steve Warren, and Richard Glover.
Second row: Anne Potter, Louise Isenhour, unknown and Linda Gillespie.
And of course Brenda Davis, standing. A closer look behind Brenda and
Linda shows someone sitting in a lounge chair, thus the thinking that
this picture was taken at a
spring outing.

A true southern tradition can also be observed in this picture...
white painted tree trunks.

01/12/09 - Richard also said that the photo was taken at Mrs. Arney's home
and it was a birthday party for Brian (May 7th) and for Richard (May 8th). Between
Lewis Suggs and Steve Warren are Jimmy Gibbs and Brian Brizendine.

The person between Louise Isenhour and Linda Gillespie was Morris Hawkins. Morris
was a very good hard of hearing student and eventually left to go to public school.

I want to thank Richard's buddy, Scott Swicegood ('78), for bringing the picture
to Richard's attention. In addition, I want to thank Janet Misenheimer Blakely ('72)
for also verifying the unknown student as Morris Hawkins.
