Wednesday Ephemera: 1914 Tivy Graduation Program

Special thanks to my fellow history enthusiast Jan Wilkinson for sending this along to share with everyone.  Not only is she a descendant of the founder of Kerrville, Joshua Brown, she's also a blogger.  You can learn a lot by visiting
This program for the 1914 graduation is very interesting.  First, there are some very interesting names in the class, including Ms. Wilkinson's relative Gussie Mae Brown.  Secondly, look how many activities were planned for the community celebration!
Thanks Jan for sharing these with all of us.

  1. This is SO interesting, Joe. The school colors were black and gold. I wonder when it changed to blue and gold....and a flower? It was all so formal. A few very familiar Kerrville names in that program....Dietert and Butt to name a couple....Thanks Joe....xo

  2. class colors arent necessarily the same as school colors!
