Hello, I am looking specifically for information about Mallory Elementary School. I was enrolled there for my entire time, 1st thru 6th grades. Some of my teachers were Mrs. Hunter, for 6th grade I think, but not sure.. One of my teachers was the Principal's wife, and I cannot recall their names to save my life.(I do however, remember his paddle...(LOL) Anything that you can contribute would be greatly appreciated. The time period was 1960-1966-1967 or so... I have absolutely nothing left from those days at all to help jog my memory. I have no pictures, no report cards, nothing at all...

Did you call the school ? See if they have something in their libr with year books, or newspaper from the school.?

Well, one of the problems is that the school was an old wooden building, and it burned down sometime later in the late 60's/early 70's I think or thereabouts. Also, at the time there were apparently no centralized records/copies kept that I have been able to locate....some of my later school years, Junior High and so on were rather easily accessed, since they did have a central recordkeeping system, but Mallory was very small, and computers at the time were of course only found in Science fiction books ... I will try other avenues though. I guess a lot of records were just stored at the school....I was able to find some grades from elementary school that were reported to the Junior High School for my entry into 7th grade, which was pretty cool...apparently I was a fairly well behaved and marginally intelligent little guy...at one time anyway....

I see that you posted your reply at the first of the year, but for whatever reason I missed any notice that may have been generated/sent about your reply until it arrived in my email inbox today...Thank You!!! I'd forgotten about posting this as well...Isn't old age wonderful?
