*Names with a single asterisk are members of the Etna High School Sophomore
Class in 1921, according to the photos of 26 such members which I have. If
you are interested in a copy of this photo, please contact me and I will
send you the scan.
**Pictures from the excellent-condition sophomore class photo have been
substituted when an individual photo has been torn or damaged. Pictures of
sophomores, Walter Schor and Alice Paulson, missing on this student body
picture, have been added at right of 2nd and 3rd rows from the bottom.
Minimal touch-up work has been done on many of the faces. Some remain as is,
due to difficulty in touch-up.
Names are spelled as my father, Edwin H. McQuaid - EHS Class of 1924, wrote
them on his "key" to the photos. If there are two spellings listed, one is
as written by my mother for the Sophomore Class picture. Please forgive if
there are misspellings.
If you can identify the unknown and/or add to the information on this photo,
