Welcome to the Hardin-Simmons 1946 Junior Banquet

The scrap book was a window into my mother before she became a wife and mother. I wonder who was her date? Where was the banquet?

    Our parents had lives before us, hard to believe at times since we only knew them as parents. That is a beautiful picture of your Mom.

      Thank you, Linda! It reminds of the pictures you post about your family, and when they are all dressed up for something special. I grew up looking at mother’s yearbooks, so I knew she had that life, but when you are younger, I am not sure you think about it in the same way as later–at least, that is true for me.

    There’s a story waiting to be told. I suspect Hardin-Simmons archives might reveal some of it. I’m waiting to hear! Your mother is lovely!

    Hello. I just read your piece on the N.W. Over street designed school in Duran. Do you have any information on the abandoned Brookville School? I believe it was designed by N.W. Oversteer and A. Hays Town in the same era. Very similar art moderne style, and the only info I could dig up implies the same type of New Deal funding. Great info btw

    WOW, this has certainly got you thinking.
    Reminds me of how my mother told me about her pre marriage loves but Dad wouldn’t utter.

    Beautiful picture of your mother. It is not until my granddaughter sees pictures of me when I was young that she actually realizes we all had lives as young people – just like she is experiencing now. Ha

      So true that they do not think of us as young! My students were always astonished when they would see a photograph in my office of conducting an interview with two famous people and realize “This is you!”
